Another gem of a discovery courtesy of Alex Wood, this time the Redwood 1960s midcentury property in Crafers, South Australia. But of you want it, you’ll have to move quickly.

That’s because the house is an auction property, with expressions of interesting closing in a couple of days. So don’t delay if you like what you see.

What we see is stunning midcentury property, thanks to (we would guess) an impressive renovation and of course, a great initial design (the architect’s details are not available sadly). Stone walls, timber beams, open spaces and expansive glazing. This place has it all, effortlessly merging the outside and inside areas.

Not short of living space either. You’ll find  three bedrooms, two bathrooms and two large living areas, the latter including a recently upgraded kitchen an exposed stone fireplace wall. There is alos an impressive cellar room and storage rooms below, four exterior garage spaces and a plot covering a massive 5.51 acres, including ‘park-like’ gardens.

Two-bedroom apartment in the Edwin Maxwell Fry-designed Number 65 Ladbroke Grove, London W11

It is currently something of a blank canvas, but this two-bedroom apartment in the Edwin Maxwell Fry-designed Number 65 Ladbroke Grove, London W11 is still an interesting proposition.

Two-bedroom apartment in the Edwin Maxwell Fry-designed Number 65 Ladbroke Grove, London W11

This is a two-bedroom apartment with balcony, found on the third floor of a grade II-listed 1930s block in Notting Hill. The work of British architect Edwin Maxwell Fry in collaboration with Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, the building looks to have survived the decades well – and this apartment in particular.That’s perhaps because of a recent refurbishment, hence the blank canvas you see.

Talking of what you see, this apartment offers a reception room with access to the balcony, a kitchen with serving hatch, two double bedrooms and a bathroom. The reception room, master bedroom and balcony all have great views over trees and gardens towards the period houses on Lansdowne Crescent. There’s also a live-in porter, lift access and some lovely communal gardens. Parking is here to, but with just three non-allocated spots for 17 apartments, that might be something of a battle in the evening.

The house is part of the former Maynards Sweet Factory in the Poets’ Corner area of Hove, near Brighton, dating back to the turn of the 20th century, but more recently converted into seven houses by London-based architects John Kerr Associates, mixing a modern contemporary style with the original framework of the factory.

We featured a stunning property from the architect some time back and now we have another. This 1920s Robert Mallet-Stevens-designed art deco artist’s studio in Paris, France.

1920s Robert Mallet-Stevens-designed art deco artist's studio in Paris, France
1920s Robert Mallet-Stevens-designed art deco artist’s studio in Paris, France

This ground floor artist’s studio was apparently created in partnership with design legend  Jean Prouvé for sculptors Jan and Joël Martel. It has obviously undergone change over the years, but according to the agent, its listed status means that the original architecture and decor has managed to survive.

1920s Robert Mallet-Stevens-designed art deco artist's studio in Paris, France

Its high ceilings (up to 6 metres) were installed to help the sculptors create their work, while the different levels allowed both them and others to get varied perspectives on their ongoing and finished work. Of course, the large windows were probably a help when it came to working too.

No sculptors here these days, with the main workshop transformed into a large, bright living space, a Boffi kitchen is now built in the former winter garden with fountain and a bathroom and a dressing room are now in the lower studio, which was once used for moulding and working clay.

It’s fairly new anyway, last selling in 2006, so at least eight years old, although the look is very much a midcentury modernist one from the outside. That carries on to some extent on the inside, although we’re talking modern family home in the main.

Glen Bracken (that’s the official name) offers a good amount of space, enhanced by some high ceilings and extensive glazing that give the impression of more. Good space outside too, covering around half an acre.

Outside there are two large block paved areas and the lawn, which is surrounded by flower beds and mature trees. The lower part of the garden opens up into a play area of swings, slide and trampoline. Ideal if you have kids, not so much if you don’t we’d guess.
