Unless there are two very similar properties in the area, this place was up for sale a few years ago. Now this five-bedroom contemporary modernist property in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

Art deco is perhaps the architectural style most associated with this part of Yorkshire and we suspect that a house in that style might once have stood here, not least with the agent using the phrase ‘Art-Deco origins’. But if that was the case, there’s pretty much no sign of it now (nor was there a few years back), other than a frontage that perhaps gives a nod to the era.

So we are looking at a bold contemporary design in its own right, one that is packed with premium fittings and with the kind of open plan living space you would except from a high-end modern-day home, along with an expanse of glazing at the rear, both upstairs and down.

In terms of living space, you have a ground floor with reception hall, cloakroom, sitting room, cinema room, study and laundry, along with the focal point of the house, a 40ft-long living kitchen.

Head upstairs and you’ll find the master suite with dressing room and bathrooms, along with three further bedrooms, watch with its own en-suite. There’s also a second floor, which has a leisure room (or bedroom five) with adjoining steam / shower room and access to as large roof terrace with views over the south of Harrogate.

Outside space includes a double garage, along with what looks like some well-maintained gardens.

On the market: 1960s midcentury-style single-storey property in Heaton Mersey, Stockport, Cheshire http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/2014/07/27/on-the-market-1960s-midcentury-style-single-storey-property-in-heaton-mersey-stockport-cheshire/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=on-the-market-1960s-midcentury-style-single-storey-property-in-heaton-mersey-stockport-cheshire http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/2014/07/27/on-the-market-1960s-midcentury-style-single-storey-property-in-heaton-mersey-stockport-cheshire/#comments Sun, 27 Jul 2014 15:30:28 +0000 WowHauser http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/?p=7951 1960s midcentury-style single-storey property in Heaton Mersey, Stockport, Cheshire

We weren’t sure whether to put this into renovation projects, but after a second look, we thought the time capsule that is this 1960s midcentury-style single-storey property in Heaton Mersey, Stockport, Cheshire doesn’t need too much work.

1960s midcentury-style single-storey property in Heaton Mersey, Stockport, Cheshire

But it needs some work, that’s for sure. The house, described as Scandinavian in style and designed by Scrivener & Sons in the early 1960s looks fairly true to the original design, which is a big plus. With some tweaks, this could be something of a midcentury gem once more. We love the layout, the beams, the flooring, the exposed stone and brick, not to mention the extensive glazing across the front of the house. The downsides (on the face of it) really are just the finishes in some rooms. But like any house, you’ll be putting your own stamp on it anyway, so that shouldn’t be an issue.

As for space, that’s down as being  a canopy entrance, a hallway with a wet room just off it, a large open plan living area with cedar woodwork and large feature sliding door to the outside space, a breakfast kitchen, utility room, inner hallway and bathroom (both with feature sky lights) and two double bedrooms with a dressing room to the master. There’s a large garage space too, along with lawned gardens and a good-sized driveway.

The agent mentions its potential to create ‘a more versatile and larger living space’, but we hope someone runs with this and tries to maintain its period look. Offers over £350,000 and no chain if you are interested, with an open day on 2nd August 2014 – but you’ll need to book with the agent for that.

Something of an iconic build, although the interior of this 1930s Gerald Lacoste-designed art deco property in Stanmore, Middlesex is perhaps very different to the original.

1930s Gerald Lacoste-designed art deco property in Stanmore, Middlesex

The house is one of a group of houses commissioned by Sir John Fitzgerald to challenge the bland housing of the day. Each was designed by Gerald Lacoste and dates to around 1934. From the outside, not a lot has changed in the intervening 80 years. But inside is a very different picture. According to the agent, over the last 18 months, the house has been ‘painstakingly renovated’ under the supervision of English Heritage, but the end result isn’t some museum from the past. It is a very modern living space.

That could be because little original was left to work with inside or indeed, the person doing the work simply wanted to take it forward. Either way, this is an old shell with a modern (and clean) interior to work with, ready for someone to come in and add the character.

What has been added is a good dose of 2014, with the Crittal windows now double glazed, an Italian luxury kitchen fitted, all new plumbing installed and complete rewiring undertaken. There’s also underfloor heating, an audio system throughout the house, broadband and internet access in every room, a new security system and much more. Ready to walk into, if you have the money.

As for space, there is plenty of that too, with the ground floor offering  a drawing room, dining / living room, study, kitchen / breakfast area, utility and guest cloakroom. The first floor has the master bedroom plus en-suite and three further bedrooms, each with a bathroom, while the second floor has a double bedroom with en-suite and a living room / children’s play area, along with two further bathrooms. Of course there are two roof terraces too, plus a 135ft rear garden, driveway and garage.

It is on the market for £1,795,000.

On the market: 1950s Ren Fer-designed midcentury property in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/2014/07/25/on-the-market-1950s-ren-fer-designed-midcentury-property-in-chorleywood-hertfordshire/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=on-the-market-1950s-ren-fer-designed-midcentury-property-in-chorleywood-hertfordshire http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/2014/07/25/on-the-market-1950s-ren-fer-designed-midcentury-property-in-chorleywood-hertfordshire/#comments Fri, 25 Jul 2014 12:38:47 +0000 WowHauser http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/?p=7936 1950s Ren Fer-designed midcentury property in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire

Thanks to Tim for flagging up this 1950s Ren Fer-designed midcentury property in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire, which was designed by the architect for his own use.

1950s Ren Fer-designed midcentury property in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire
1950s Ren Fer-designed midcentury property in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire

We are guessing 1950s, as we haven’t been able to find out much about the place outside of the agent’s details. Certainly around that era anyway. According to Tim, the house stands out amongst the other houses in the street, with the architect no doubt wanting to make his mark with this design half a century or so ago – and they are still making that mark today.

1950s Ren Fer-designed midcentury property in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire

At first glance, there’s nothing jumping out at you. But at the time, the Scandinavian influence would have been quite a diversion. Also, the fact that it looks so modern today is perhaps another nod to good design. The house has been well maintained, but many of the original features are still in place, such as the exposed brick, African hardwood, parquet flooring, quarry tiles and interestingly, the custom fitted furniture from that original build.

1950s Ren Fer-designed midcentury property in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire

The extended glazed area at the rear (the garden room) is perhaps the headline feature in terms of layout, but there is also a sitting and dining room on the ground floor, align with a kitchen, bathroom and garage access. Upstairs are the three bedrooms and a further bathroom.

£850,000 is the asking price.

It was probably something of a design statement 50+ years ago and in 2014, this 1960s Jacques Rabinel-designed modernist property in Aubergenville, central France is still well out of the mainstream.

1960s Jacques Rabinel-designed modernist property in Aubergenville, central France
1960s Jacques Rabinel-designed modernist property in Aubergenville, central France

It was actually designed in 1960, with a design said to be inspired by Alvar Aalto’s own (and much earlier) Aalto house. It’s quite an austere house in some ways, but not when you are inside, looking out over the extensive landscaped grounds that come with this place. Indeed, it’s probably the perfect place to relax and enjoy the country.

The house looks fairly unchanged over the years, which is good news, not least because much of the fitted wooden furniture and other original finishes have survived. But a few things have been updated, notably the kitchen, which is probably good news, not to mention much of the decor, which looks fairly contemporary.

1960s Jacques Rabinel-designed modernist property in Aubergenville, central France

As for space, that’s down as around 180 sq. metres over two floors, with the ground offering a kitchen, a living and dining room and extensive glazing opening onto the garden. Upstairs there are three bedrooms including a master suite and two bathrooms. Outside is 2.5 hectares of land, laid out as parkland, with your own fruit trees.

Just 30 minutes from Paris too, which is nice. Price? That’s down as €995,000, which is around £788,000.

Always had a thing about industrial conversions, the mix of old and new, not to mention the high ceilings they tend to offer. Which is why we are flagging up this one-bedroom factory conversion apartment in Plympton Street, London NW8.

It’s a first-floor unit in the former industrial space of the Plympton Street Apartments, converted in the mid-1990s by Czech architect Eva Jiricna, who had previously worked with Richard Rogers before setting out on her own.

She has certainly done an impressive job on this place, which maintains the facade of the old factory (including the windows), but offers very cool contemporary living space within. That includes a 30ft reception room that runs from one end of the flat to the other, a built-in kitchen, dining area, a ‘semi-open-plan’ study area, with a door to the terrace (that terrace is shared by the way), a double bedroom, dressing area and wet room.

All of that is a stone’s throw from Alfie’s Antique Market, so handy for picking up a few bits and pieces for the place too. £695,000 is the asking price.

With more than a nod to old school modernism comes the Vista Mare contemporary modernist property in East Preston, West Sussex.

It’s an individually architect-designed property that offers sea views from all principal rooms. So if you like the idea of waking to a wave or two, this could be the house for you.

As for the house itself, that has been reworked in the last year (hopefully not from an original period house, there’s no mention of that anywhere) and is now pretty much cutting edge living, with underfloor heating, grey tinted windows, walnut flooring, premium tiling and the usual modern-day technology additions. The outside offers a landscaped garden, outdoor heated swimming pool and access to the beach.

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.

1970s Malcolm Smith-designed Wallend property in London NW5

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.

1970s Malcolm Smith-designed Wallend property in London NW5

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.

1970s Malcolm Smith-designed Wallend property in London NW5

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.

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.
