We do love an industrial space, especially when it has been converted as well as The Old Bakery conversion in London SE22.

As you probably guessed, this was once a working bakery, but is now a two-floor living space. One that maintains some of the original features of the old building too, including the original white bakery tiles and metal framed windows.

Saying that, it doesn’t dwell too much on the past, with the building very much a distinctive, bright and contemporary living space, complete with its own courtyard garden.

Talking of space, there is in excess of 1,700 sq. ft. to play with, accessed via tall wooden gates leaden into that courtyard space. Beyond that, the internal layout includes a large entrance hall (used as a library and general living area right now) and a ground floor with a main bedroom, with attached dressing room, a second bedroom, WC and utility room.

Head upstairs and you’ll find a large reception room (taking up much of this floor) with light boosted by the roof glazing. Also here is a kitchen / breakfast room, a shower room with WC. Finally a second floor adds in a small storage room and rooftop views across to Canary Wharf and Tower Bridge.

Not enough space? Well, permission has been granted to add a third floor and ‘remodel the current interior’ to designs by architects Waugh Thistleton, which is good to know. Although reworking will obviously be an additional cost.

The cost right now, should you like this place, is £1,299,950.

This is something of a blank canvas, probably not requiring too much to turn this 1960s midcentury modern property in King City, California, USA into someone’s dream period home.

In fact, someone looks to have done a paint and carpeting job on this place to make it more appealing. But work is needed to bring it back to life, with the house in its present state pretty bare of anything – except a stunning 1960s design.

1960s midcentury modern property in King City, California, USA

From the outside, this is something special. A raised property sat in around 1.6 acres of land, with huge windows, wonderful beams and open space to play with. There’s also a good amount of living space too, said to be around 2,158 sq. ft.

1960s midcentury modern property in King City, California, USA

That includes the main open living areas, four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a laundry and utility area, kitchen and a ‘bonus room’ that could be used as an office or dark room apparently. There’s also a garage outside, with room for two cars.

Of course, you’ll need to spend some money on it, but with an asking price of £379,900 (around £233,000) there might be room in the budget to add in that ‘wow’ factor.

In need of renovation: 1960s three-bedroom modernist property in Beadnell, Northumberland http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/2014/09/29/in-need-of-renovation-1960s-three-bedroom-modernist-property-in-beadnell-northumberland/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=in-need-of-renovation-1960s-three-bedroom-modernist-property-in-beadnell-northumberland http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/2014/09/29/in-need-of-renovation-1960s-three-bedroom-modernist-property-in-beadnell-northumberland/#comments Mon, 29 Sep 2014 09:41:03 +0000 WowHauser http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/?p=8440 1960s three-bedroom modernist property in Beadnell, Northumberland

This is an interesting one. More interesting because we know next to nothing about this 1960s three-bedroom modernist property in Beadnell, Northumberland.

1960s three-bedroom modernist property in Beadnell, Northumberland
1960s three-bedroom modernist property in Beadnell, Northumberland

In fact, we are even guessing the era, which might even be the earlier part of the 1970s. But it’s certainly that era. In some ways, the house looks quite traditional, not least with the wooden cladding to one exterior of the house and the pitched roof on one side (which is actually extra living space).

1960s three-bedroom modernist property in Beadnell, Northumberland
1960s three-bedroom modernist property in Beadnell, Northumberland

But the majority is single-level, heavily-glazed, open-plan living space. In addition, you get the beams, the wood floors and the exposed stone and brick. It was obviously quite a bold design once – and could be again.

1960s three-bedroom modernist property in Beadnell, Northumberland

A decent amount of space to play with too, including an entrance porch, living room, separate dining area, a fitted kitchen with breakfasting area, a sun room, three bedrooms (one with en-suite) and family bathroom. There’s also that first floor room, which could be converted to an additional bedroom.

Outside are gardens to the front, side and rear, a pond. a shared driveway, a workshop and a historic sheep fold, which could be converted to something more useful.

We are pretty sure this is a house we featured back in 2011. On the face of it, not a lot has changed, but step into this 1970s B. J. Duffy-designed midcentury modern property in Welwyn, Hertfordshire and you’ll notice quite an improvement.

The one we saw in 2011 (and designed back in 1974) had plenty of original features, but just lacked that bit of character and personality. Not so now. It has been ‘comprehensively refurbished’ over the past year by the current owners, making the most of the original detailing, whilst marrying it up with some mid-20th century design touches. The end result is stunning.

That staircase, the walls and of course, the beams are all big selling points here. But so is the space on offer, not least the first floor reception area, which runs the full width of the house and benefits from floor to ceiling windows overlooking the gardens, along with a large terrace to the side.

Those wooden open tread stairs lead to the second floor and three bedrooms, including a master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom plus family bathroom, while the ground floor offers a kitchen, dining area, two further bedrooms, a shower room, utility room and access to an integral garage.

The finish on the inside might not be to everyone’s taste, but there’s still a lot of potential (and space) in this five-bedroom 1930s art deco property in Middleton On Sea, West Sussex.

The house itself looks pretty original from the outside and to be fair, a lot of originality is still retained in the exterior. Once inside though, it’s a slightly different story.

Not one of the over-renovated deco houses we see, but the house has been updated over the decades. It is perhaps what you would expect of a house pushing 80 years old, but it certainly isn’t a lost cause. Most of it is the decor and finishes. With a knowledgeable and creative eye (plus some additional investment), you could put the period back into this place.

Location is on its side, with the house just a short walk from the sea. Space is also a big plus. Head in and you’ll find a first reception room with double doors to a second dual-aspect reception room and access to a rear hallway. There’s also a newly-fitted kitchen and what’s described as a ‘studio’ to the side of the property with its own private entrance as well as rear door to the garden.

It is a block we have featured in the past, but this two-bedroom apartment in the grade II-listed Langham House Close, Richmond upon Thames, Surrey could be the pick of the bunch.

The building itself is interesting enough. Described by the 20th Century Society as ‘a benchmark against which all other apartment blocks can be measured’ and listed by English Heritage due to both design and maintenance, it really is a fine example of forward-thinking domestic architecture, as the images show. Credit to Stirling & Gowan and their work in the late 1950s for that.

But this place takes it up another level with the finish. Using the existing 1950s architecture, the owner has created a nice balance between retro style and practical modern-day living space. Not always an easy thing to do. Some great original features too, including ‘floating’ internal walls and the fireplace.

As for space, this is a first floor apartment in one of the ‘garden pavilion’ blocks, offering two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen / breakfast room, living / dining room and the bonus of off-street parking. Communal gardens too, which should be a welcome addition during the warmer months.

The property was designed by German architect Manfred Bresgen during his time at Austin Vernon & Partners in the mid-1960s. These designs apparently don’t come on the market often, so if you like the idea of living here, you might want to check the bank balance. Although saying that, the price might well push it out of reach of most of us. More on that later.

Let’s focus on the house first, which is 1960s modernism on the outside, coupled with a more contemporary take on modernism on the inside. That’s not a bad thing by the way. The current owners (presumably) have done a stunning job of the interior, a fairly minimalist approach that acts as a blank canvas for the various design and design features throughout.

Fans of the wonderful Ferris Bueller house might just appreciate this 1960s David Haid-designed modernist property in Lakeside, Michigan, which happens to be by the same architect, a protege of Mies Van Der Rohe.

It’s very much cut from the same cloth too (if that makes sense), the expanse of glass and angular structure are still present, although this is a later design, built in 1964, as opposed to the ‘Bueller’ property, which dates to the early 1950s.

Like that previous house, this one still looks in fine condition, no donut helped along by the same owners who commissioned it still being in place. it has been updated of course, but there’s only so much change you can really do to this place. So fixtures and fittings naturally, but the structure, the floor to ceiling windows and the beams are still present, not to mention the huge open spaces. The outside really does come in.

The location is worth mentioning too, with two and a half acres of gardens and if that’s not enough, 200ft of your own private beach. So don’t worry too much about privacy suffering with all that glass.

You probably know that the Golden Lane Estate was and is a post-war modernist building project, designed by Chamberlin, Powell & Bon as a response to the need for housing in an area devastated by wartime bombing.

Cullum Welch House was one of the last sections to be built, offering fairly compact living space, but with a design and layout that has stood the test of time. These are desirable living spaces.

This south-facing studio (on the first floor) comes with the added appeal of original features, including a full length window with the original flower window boxes at the front of the apartment. It’s obviously very well maintained too – and unquestionably a stylish place to spend time.

I think it is fair to say that it doesn’t look at its best right now. But with a bit of tweaking to the interior, this 1960s Walter Greaves-designed modernist property in Blackheath, London SE3 could be a stylish place to live.

It looks largely original in terms of design and layout, although the interior looks to have been updated in the 1980s, but without obvious structural changes. The large windows and exposed brick, for example, survived the upgrades.

That’s one plus. Another looks to be the quiet location and the views, with the house overlooking the nearby St Michael’s church. A third plus is obviously the space on offer here.

It’s a three-storey house with a bright open plan reception room, a decent-sized kitchen alone with five bedrooms. Six if you include the study, which could be converted to bedroom accommodation. Two bathrooms and three roof terraces complete the internal layout.

Outside there is a walled garden with mature shrubs and trees, along with paved patios and pathways. You also get a double garage and additional off street parking.

If that appeals, the asking price is £950,000. More detailed descriptions of the rooms are available on the agent’s site.
