How do you fancy waking up in an iconic grade I-listed modernist icon each and every day? You can if you invest in this one-bedroom apartment in the 1930s Wells Coates-designed Isokon Building, London NW3.

One-bedroom apartment in the 1930s Wells Coates-designed Isokon Building, London NW3

One of the finest Modern Movement buildings in the UK, it was designed by Wells Coates back in 1934 and was the first block ever to be built primarily from reinforced concrete. Quite a colourful past too, with previous residents including Agatha Christie, Marcel Breuer and Walter Gropius.

That was then, but this is now and on the face of it, not a lot has changed. That[s perhaps down to the renovation work undertaken back in 2004, which really has brought the Isokon back to life.

On offer right now is just a small part of it, a ground floor apartment (with its own front door) and very much a blank canvas, with the place maintained in a good condition and with original features, such as the original sliding doors, for example.

Space isn’t exactly extensive, but if you need something modest, everything is here. That includes an entrance hall, a galley kitchen (which might be a tight squeeze if more than one person is using it), a south-facing reception room and the bedroom, which can be opened up or closed off. The bathroom finishes off the layout. You also get access to the communal garden and patio.

£485,000 is the asking price.

If you have a long memory, you might recall the Longwood House contemporary modernist property in Southwick, Northamptonshire being featured in Grand Designs. But it was quite a time ago.

The house featured back in 2003 (on series three of the show), with a revisited show following up five or so years later. Fast forward to 2014 and it is on the market, should you have been longing to own it over the past decade or so.

Time has been kind to the award-winning design, with the house still striking a rather bold pose in its rural setting. Back then, the house was designed in a cube shape, but has more recently been ‘tweaked’ a Canadian Western Red Cedar cladding. It has also been added to with a ‘pod’ extension in 2005 to boost the living space.

Outside of that, much is the same, with double height windows along the front façade to maximise the light and the views. Inside, everything looks fresh and neutral, with the facilities boosted by energy efficient systems such as under-floor heating and a wood-burning stove in the main living areas, plus tinted glass, which apparently minimises the loss of heat.

Longwood House contemporary modernist property in Southwick, Northamptonshire

As for space, that’s dominated by the main living area, which is sub-divided into an open plan kitchen, dining area and main living / reception space. There’s also a cloakroom, snug, utility, study, a master bedroom with an en-suite, two further double bedrooms and one more bathroom.

A good amount of garden too (it is 0.7-acre site), with a ‘flow’ between the interior and exterior space. That outside area is predominantly lawn and trees, with a parking area and a private road leading to the house.

If you are interested, the asking price is £675,000.

An amazing place and this 1950s David Henken-designed midcentury property in Pound Ridge, New York state, USA might have one feature you don’t expect.

1950s David Henken-designed midcentury property in Pound Ridge, New York state, USA
1950s David Henken-designed midcentury property in Pound Ridge, New York state, USA

The house dates from 1956 and looks like little has changed at first glance. But that’s probably done to a ‘magazine quality’ restoration of this place. Look carefully and you’ll see it’s as much a modern house as a period property. But the overall look and feel of the original is still very much evident.

1950s David Henken-designed midcentury property in Pound Ridge, New York state, USA
1950s David Henken-designed midcentury property in Pound Ridge, New York state, USA

You have probably noticed all that mahogany panelling, the windows, the open spaces and the masonry fireplaces. But you’ll have to dig well into the photos to notice the really interesting thing about this house. It’s built into a hill and specifically, built on a rock, the peak of which is built into one of the reception rooms. Yes, you really are at one with nature.

1950s David Henken-designed midcentury property in Pound Ridge, New York state, USA

Once the novelty of that has worn off, you’ll probably be more interested in the space on offer. Well, this is built in a plot of over two acres, with the house offering 3,162 sq. ft. of living area.

1950s David Henken-designed midcentury property in Pound Ridge, New York state, USA

That includes two bedrooms, three bathrooms, an eat-in kitchen, reception space, an exercise room, walk-in closet and much more. Outside is a pool, your own private wood (which you can view from the extensive gallery space), a koi pond and a couple of garages.

Two people should be applauded for this 1960s modernist property in Hamilton Park West, London N5. The original architect and the person who has reworked it into what you see today.

Sadly, we don’t know the name of the person behind this in the early 1960s, but we do know the latter. That is Zoe Papadopoulou, who ‘remodelled’ this place in 2013, creating a finished space that is still very much the 1960s in spirit, but with the bright open living spaces and clean finishes that you would expect from a high-end, modern-day property.

It’s a semi-detached property, but one that comes with a rather nice little bonus – a separate one-bedroom artist’s studio. So if you feel creative in your spare time, this could be the place for you.

Good amount of space too. Head into the large hallway (with access to a guest WC and utility and study area) and you’ll be lead into an impressive (and very premium) kitchen and dining room that runs from the front to the back of the house and opens onto the garden. That also leads into the adjacent reception room, which also overlooks the garden.

The first floor has two double bedrooms at the rear, a single bedroom or study, and a modern bathroom with a freestanding bath and walk-in shower. That artist’s studio you ask? You will find that in the garden, complete with a reception room and open-plan kitchen, a bedroom with a raised sleeping platform and storage beneath, and a shower room. There is also a small garden office and a separate shed for bicycles. Garden too, which takes in three sides of the house.

When you see the name John Lautner, you tend to expect something a little bit special. This 1980s John Lautner-designed Alden Schwimmer Residence in Beverly Hills, California, USA certainly doesn’t disappoint.

It dates from 1982 and is up for sale for the first time since the ‘90s. The agent describes it as a ‘modern hilltop castle’ perched on a 4.33 acre site above Benedict Canyon and offering a 180 degree view from the huge terraces. The photos pretty much say it all on that front.

A private gated drive opens to a ‘multi-million dollar concrete driveway’ which wraps around the hill into the ‘large entry motor court’. Once inside, you’ll find curved ceilings and glass walls, wooden detailing and stone surfaces that scream premium build. The house has also just undergone a multi-million dollar restoration and renovation by Lautner-trained architect Duncan Nicholson, so looking it nest right now too.

Oh yes, space aplenty, as you might expect (6,180 sq. ft). The main level offers a master bedroom and a library, while the lower level features maid’s quarters and three additional bedrooms (there are five bedrooms and six bathrooms in total). There’s also a cantilevered pavilion with a private pool and terrace. You might never want to leave once you get in!

It’s rare to find just a few period features these days, but a houseful? That’s almost impossible. But not completely, as this 1960s midcentury property in Sherman Oaks, California, USA demonstrates.

This is a museum as much as a house, on the market for the first time and with really only the kitchen updated since the original build back in 1964. Yes, it needs some work (not everything old is cool), but there’s a basis here for someone to do a sympathetic restoration of this place and its built-in furnishings, turning it back into the hipster hangout it once was.

There’s certainly a good starting point for it, with the house still looking good from the outside and offering space once you get through the door, enhanced by the high ceilings of this place. Oh yes, some great ‘sweeping’ views of the Valley and San Gabriel Mountains too.

Some garaging too judging by the photos.

Something of an architectural landmark in the country, this 1920s Pol Abraham-designed modernist property in Paris, France is now no the market after a fairly recent renovation.

1920s Pol Abraham-designed modernist property in Paris, France
1920s Pol Abraham-designed modernist property in Paris, France

The house was built between 1926 and 1929 on the outskirts of Paris (which you can see from the upper floors of the house in the distance), the work of noted modernist architect Pol Abraham, who was the subject of a retrospective exhibition at the Pompidou back in 2008.

1920s Pol Abraham-designed modernist property in Paris, France
1920s Pol Abraham-designed modernist property in Paris, France

Around that time, this house underwent its renovation, which (from what we can see) balances the needs of modern day living with a respect for the original design. It’s a design that’s very much of the international style from the outside with sharp angles, smooth white walls and terracing obvious as you approach the place, but with large open spaces, high ceilings and large windows (offering plenty of brightness) when you get inside. Something you might not have expected.

Once through the door you’ll also notice the bold statement staircase lit up by glass tiles, a translucent double door that leads to the lounge with the office and an adjoining dining room that extends onto the terrace and into the garden. There’s also a ‘spacious’ kitchen and pantry on the ground floor too.

Head up to the first floor and you will find five bedrooms and two ‘double’ bathrooms. That’s not all though. This house also offers a ‘paint shop’ (we are guessing artist’s studio but we are not sure) that overlooks the garden, a triple garage and a ‘huge’ roof terrace with a dumbwaiter, along with views over the valley of the Seine to La Défense.

It might be a four-bedroom 1930s art deco property in Bexleyheath, Kent on the outside, but once through the door you might well think you are in the 1970s.

That’s essentially the issue with this place, which has been owned by the same family for the last 40 or so years. Apparently they did a lot of work to the house back in the day, but it now needs someone else to move it forwards – or indeed backwards.

But this still an opportunity, not least because the house itself is still very much a ‘deco’ property, one with a lot of space both inside and out. It just needs taking back to basics or modernising with one eye on its original design.

It is a second (aka top) floor apartment in Hallgate, which was built in the late 1950s as part of the Cator Estate in Blackheath, the work of the Span development company and its architect, Eric Lyons.

Amazing to think that these places are approaching 60 years old, as the block could pass for something rather more modern. That’s a testament to the original design.

Extensive glazing front and back, so plenty of light within, as well as what’s described as a ‘tranquil setting’ if you need to get away from a busy work life.

As for the apartment itself, well we mentioned the refurbishment, which was obviously to a high standard, but not the space, which is around 777 sq. ft. That includes two bedrooms, a kitchen and living room, a bathroom and a dining area. You also get a separate store room to keep the clutter away.
