Not that this rather striking build is a time capsule. A look at the kitchen suggests that the house has been updated in places. But overall, little looks to have changed in terms of the structure. That’s the key thing here.

The agent, quite rightly, suggests that the house is now in need of some kind of renovation. But that’s really down to it looking just a little tired in places. Nothing of substance needs altering to these eyes.

There really is so much to love. The imposing structure itself is the key selling point, but beyond that white facade there is so much more to love.

The walls of glazing that bring the outside in, the double height living spaces, that wonderful period fireplace, the gallery spaces and the two private decks. It’s a house that offers so much on so many levels. Quite literally.

Amazingly, this last sold in 1978 for just $61,000. It will cost a little bit more to secure this place now, as you might expect. It is on the market for $649,900. Still cheap compared to UK prices.

    Just stunning……I love the layout and the fact there is 3 floors, I would remodel the dining room for sure and landscape a few things, but not a whole lot else. I love the windows everywhere but still hidden in the trees feel. Its fun to think of what I would do with each room with just 2 people living there.
