That’s down to the mix of angles and curves, as well as the random use of glazing throughout, But get up-close and you’ll also noticed that textured concrete finish too. It isn’t the last you will see of it.

Walk in through the front door and you will find a similar finish throughout, which is just one of the key ‘wow’ factors here. The other is the space. Yes, some wonderful double height space, with a gallery looking down over the main living area.

Structurally, little has changed. A glance around the place shows that and in truth, it would be quite a job to update all that concrete. But this isn’t a house lost in 1974. The kitchen is new, the bathrooms look recent and several rooms around the place also look to have been refreshed. So still a period property, but with modern-era facilities thrown in for good measure.
