This is interesting. Not least because this 1960s Mary Christian Hamp-designed modernist property in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire is rather like a past find.
That ‘find’ was a house we spotted way back in 2013. In fact, we had to look closely to check if it was the same one. We are pretty sure it isn’t.
This is one of a number of modernist properties built together around 1963 and now with Conservation Area status due to the special architectural interest. 29 houses in total, with this one looking like it still boasts many of its original features.
The architecture itself looks pretty much unchanged and once inside, we can enjoy the full height windows, the beams and wood panels, the angled ceilings, the staircase and the fireplace to name just a few things.
But this isn’t a time capsule. Far from it. While those features have been persevered. a look at the kitchen and the bathroom suggests fairly recent work has been undertaken here. In fact, there’s something of a ‘freshness’ about the whole place, suggesting that the decor and the finishes are more recent than you might at first think.
As for space, that’s pretty substantial, as well as flexible.
Over four floors, it has a ‘good size’ entrance hall leading to the ‘spacious’ family room, bedroom 3 (or study) and the shower room. Stairs then lead down to the kitchen/breakfast room which is open plan to the dining area. A utility is also connected to the kitchen.
Stairs from the entrance hall also take you to the living room with all that glazing and a balcony. Another bedroom is also on this floor. Beyond that are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom on the top floor. Finishing things off is a large study/playroom accessed via the garden.
At the front of the property is a driveway accessing a double garage, additional car parking and lawn/gardens. The rear garden is mainly lawn, plus trees and flowers.
£1,200,000 is the asking price.
