WowHaus http://www.wowhaus.co.uk Putting the wow back into online house hunting Tue, 22 Jul 2014 12:40:36 +0000 en-US hourly 1 On the market: 1970s Malcolm Smith-designed Wallend property in London NW5 http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/2014/07/22/on-the-market-1970s-malcolm-smith-designed-wallend-property-in-london-nw5/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=on-the-market-1970s-malcolm-smith-designed-wallend-property-in-london-nw5 http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/2014/07/22/on-the-market-1970s-malcolm-smith-designed-wallend-property-in-london-nw5/#comments Tue, 22 Jul 2014 12:40:36 +0000 WowHauser http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/?p=7906 1970s Malcolm Smith-designed Wallend property in London NW5

As it says above, the house originated in the 1970s, but has been ‘remodelled and extended’ as recently as 2009 with some premium finishes, leaving a mix of retro and contemporary that seems to work very well. It’s certainly very easy on the eye.

You can access the house via a gate and courtyard, with the living space laid out over two floors. Unusually, the sleeping accommodation is downstairs, while the living areas are on the upper level to make the most of the natural light.

The entrance area has both a coat cupboard and the original spiral staircase, as well as access to a ‘double-volume’ reception room with full-height windows and a dining area, along with a modern kitchen and what’s described as a ‘blue tower of books’, able to seal off the space or open it up to the reception room.

On the lower floor you’l find a bathroom, a master bedroom and two further bedrooms (one currently used as a study / guest room), with a fold-down double bed and built-in storage system. There is also a large storage area accessible, with gardens surrounding the house.

If that appeals, the asking price is £1,100,000.

1920s Le Corbusier-designed Cité Frugès property in Pessac, Aquitaine, south-west France

Now this is something special. But you’ll need a lot of time and we suspect a bit of money to do justice to this 1920s Le Corbusier-designed Cite Fruges property in Pessac, Aquitaine, south-west France.

1920s Le Corbusier-designed Cité Frugès property in Pessac, Aquitaine, south-west France
1920s Le Corbusier-designed Cité Frugès property in Pessac, Aquitaine, south-west France

It’s an architectural icon dating back to 1925, one of around 50 similar modernist properties that were commissioned in 1924 by local industrialist Henry Frugès and designed by Le Corbusier.

1920s Le Corbusier-designed Cité Frugès property in Pessac, Aquitaine, south-west France
1920s Le Corbusier-designed Cité Frugès property in Pessac, Aquitaine, south-west France

It was social housing at the time, wi5th six different (but similar) designs produced for the employees of Frugès’ factory. This one is knowns as a ‘Skyscraper’ and like the others was produced from reinforced concrete and offering an entrance hall, a kitchen, a living room, a bathroom with shower and toilet, and two or three rooms on the upper floors.

However, according to the details we have here, this particular property has a kitchen, lounge and dining rook on the ground, with a second floor offering four bedrooms and two bathrooms, along with a huge roof terrace area and a garage space. Things might have been altered over the years – with no inside shots available, it is hard to tell.

Anyway, this one is up for sale and sold as a renovation project. It looks like it needs some work too, with one agent offering an idea (last image) of just what to do with it. What seems to be the case is that these houses are becoming more prized, so finding any to do up will become harder and harder.

That and the history perhaps accounts for the price of €624,000.

Update: There is some confusion about which house is for sale, with different images being shown. There are two listings, with this one showing a house for sale at €318,500 (which we are guessing is the really derelict one captured above). Basically, contact the agent if you have a genuine interest to clarify what is for sale.

I guess this is a 1980s Walter Segal-designed modernist property in London SE23, although the architect has actually passed away prior to this place being built.

That’s because the house here is one of seven properties in Segal Close that were constructed in the early 1980s using the ‘Segal Method’. That method of construction relied on a a modular, timber-frame system that was easy to build and easy to maintain, without the need for bricklayers and plasterers.

This is one of the seven, a three-bedroom detached property with a large lounge with great views over the garden, plus an open plan kitchen to the dining room with access onto a decked balcony. Obviously there are the three bedrooms too, along with two bathrooms (one being a shower room), a cellar space for storage and your own garden plus allocated parking.

Not sure then images quite do the place justice (but this is all we have I’m afraid). However, if you see here, you can see another of the houses that sold a couple of years back.

We featured something similar in the same area back in 2012. But this is definitely a completely different four-bedroom 1930s art deco property in Southgate, London N14.

It’s the usual mixed bag we see with a lot of art deco properties we see these days. From the outside, this is pure 1930s deco, right down to the windows and (possibly) the door. That’s perhaps down to the house being on Abbotshall Avenue, a conservation area because of nine similar properties, this one sharing the design with two others.

The inside is a different ball game. It has been updated, at times with some quite bold finishes. But much of it (modern kitchen aside) is just decor and fittings. So don’t let that put you off too much. There’s no reason why you can’t put much of that 1930s vibe back if that’s what you want.

Four-bedroom 1930s art deco property in Southgate, London N14

As for space, there are four bedrooms, a double reception room, a study / reception room, a modern fitted kitchen, bathroom and guest WC. You also get a large roof terrace, a 91ft rear garden and ‘ample’ off-street parking.

Offers over £800,000 for this.

Thanks to Cath for sending us her own house to feature. We’re happy to do so to, as this 1960s Austin Vernon & Partners-designed townhouse, Dulwich Estate, London SE19 is a rather cool place.

The house dates to 1963 and according to Cath, they have updated the property with a new kitchen and bathrooms, but have retained many original features including the original windows, open tread stairs to the first floor and the stair divider with broad reeded glass in the main living area. Some nice clean finishes throughout too, with some period midcentury furnishings (not staying we presume) adding to the look.

I know, at first glance it might look like one of those modernist churches.  But this is actually a 1970s Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired property in Canaan, New York State, USA.

1970s Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired property in Canaan, New York State, USA

Dating back to 1975, the house is inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s organic style of architecture. Hardly surprising as the architect was a Wright apprentice, Richard Miller, along with another FLW apprentice David Henken, who enlarged the house in 1988 for Guy Garrett, described as a ‘prominent executive at The New York Times’.

As we hinted above, the house brings the outdoors in, with the exposed stone and concrete walls being a key feature here. There’s also an expanse of wood panelling (including mahogany ceilings), a wonderful curved staircase, floor to ceiling glazing, cherry cabinetry, locally quarried granite, Carrara marble, Murano glass tiles, concrete flooring and of course, that stunning feature window at the top of the page. Money obviously wasn’t an issue on this build.

As for space, from the entrance you’ll find a living room with its own balcony, stone fireplace and that curved stairway, which takes you to the master suite, which is as luxurious as you would expect. There’s also a dining room, guest bathroom and kitchen, which all open onto decked areas for more of that inside/outside feel.

At the other end of the house, the more recent north wing offers a family room/library with built-in shelving, a hallways, laundry and guest suite comprised of two rooms and a bathroom. Near the main house, there’s also a timber-framed guest house/studio with private deck and a heated three-car garage.

See the listing for more details and indeed, more images. it is on the market for $1,350,000, which is around £789,000.

Effectively this is a houseboat of sorts, located on a freehold mooring (with 125ft of River Thames frontage) and private grounds of around half an acre. The location seems to be a hip place too – said to be home to successful artists, writers and musicians, according to the agent, offering a secluded location with all the essential amenities for everyday existence (gas, water etc).

The rather striking, heavily-glazed house seems like a new-build, hence the lack of internal shots. If you buy, you can add your own ‘finishing touches’ according to to your taste. That’s a lot of touches too, as the house is spacious, able to adapt from a five-bedroom family home (with separate au pair accommodation) to an artist’s living space, studio or gallery if that’s what you prefer. See the floorplan on the listing for an idea of how that would work.

Away from the modernist property is the land, which is ‘secluded and beautifully planted’, throwing in off street parking for five cars, two access driveways, garage/workshop, summerhouse, outbuildings, slipway and the potential to moor motorboats around the perimeter of the houseboat itself.

Not the most eye-catching of houses we admit, but we think this individually-designed 1970s property in Saxmundham, Suffolk could be a good project.

Individually-designed 1970s property in Saxmundham, Suffolk
Individually-designed 1970s property in Saxmundham, Suffolk

Known as Brackendale, it is a detached single-storey property dating from the early 1970s and a house with a distinctive look. Although obviously, that look isn’t great right now.

Individually-designed 1970s property in Saxmundham, Suffolk

It looks fairly abandoned and needs work to bring this substantial four-bedroom property back to life. The agent points to ‘repair, refurbishment and modernisation’, which is likely to be a lot of work.

But it might be worth it. The images we can see show an interesting angular build with large rooms and some fairly large windows. Inside it’s pretty bare, ready to go for a refit.

Huge thanks to Axel Ronsin for pointing us in the direction of the agent for this 1970s Andre Gomis-designed modernist property in Le Creusot, eastern France.

1970s Andre Gomis-designed modernist property in Le Creusot, eastern France
1970s Andre Gomis-designed modernist property in Le Creusot, eastern France

The house dates from between 1971 and 1974, located in a small village around 45km from Le Creusot, which is on a TGV line. So decent access to the place.

1970s Andre Gomis-designed modernist property in Le Creusot, eastern France
1970s Andre Gomis-designed modernist property in Le Creusot, eastern France

It sits in 11,318 sq. metres of land, with the house offering panoramic views of the Arroux valley and the Morvan mountains. In the middle of all that open rural space, this place really does stand out. That’s due to the contrast of landscape and the stark modernism of this place. It still looks contemporary from the outside. In fact, it still looks ahead of the game in some respects.

1970s Andre Gomis-designed modernist property in Le Creusot, eastern France
1970s Andre Gomis-designed modernist property in Le Creusot, eastern France

But that’s not the case inside, which is like a trip back to the 1970s, highlighted by that amazing / bizarre ceiling. When you see that, you really couldn’t be in any other decade except the ’70s.

1970s Andre Gomis-designed modernist property in Le Creusot, eastern France
1970s Andre Gomis-designed modernist property in Le Creusot, eastern France

The house is split into two ‘cubes’, the smaller of which offers office space, a basement and a garage for two cars. In the larger space is a living room, dining room, kitchen, additional double height living space, three bedrooms, one bathroom, laundry and cellar. There is also a mezzanine space with two further bedrooms, each with a bathroom.

It’s a statement house which needs a bit of modernisation here and there. But even allowing for that, the price of €320,000 (around £254,000) sounds reasonable.

The house is pretty much what you expect from a Huf Haus, which is open space, beams, a monochrome design and plenty of natural light, thanks to all of that glazing. Built to a high standard obviously. That’s the Huf Haus calling card.
