WowHaus http://www.wowhaus.co.uk Putting the wow back into online house hunting Tue, 22 Apr 2014 10:05:22 +0000 en-US hourly 1 On the market: 1980s A-frame property in Southminster, Essex http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/2014/04/22/on-the-market-1980s-a-frame-property-in-southminster-essex/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=on-the-market-1980s-a-frame-property-in-southminster-essex http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/2014/04/22/on-the-market-1980s-a-frame-property-in-southminster-essex/#comments Tue, 22 Apr 2014 10:05:22 +0000 WowHauser http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/?p=7321 1980s A-frame property in Southminster, Essex

Something of a game of two halves here (if we’re talking in football terms). Part of this place has the wow factor, the rest of this 1980s A-frame property in Southminster, Essex looks like it needs to play catch up.

But it’s a striking build nonetheless. According to the agent, it was constructed in the early 1980s with an individual ‘A frame’ design, which is intended to take full advantage if of the estuary views.

That perhaps also accounts for the upstairs space having the impact, as it was (and is) the focal point of the house. A large open space with wood panelling to the wall and roof space, likely to feel even bigger with all that height and the feature window.

Outside of that, time seems to have taken its toll as little – or perhaps there’s only so much you can do with the remaining space? We don’t know, but we think an upgrade throughout could still make this place special.

As for layout, there are four bedrooms to the ground floor (two with direct access to the gardens), that 21ft. square living room with 14ft. vaulted ceiling plus a separate dining room and kitchen.

To be honest, we’re not really mad about the inside. But the exterior of this 1960s midcentury modern property in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA is something else.

It really is the house of an era. At the modernist end of midcentury modern, the house has an incredibly stark, angular exterior, which looks to have been well maintained over the years. The top image really coulees be a promo shot from the original listing.

Inside and it’s not quite so exciting. Ok, we didn’t expect an untouched interior, but this has been heavily renovated, described as a ‘high end modern remodel’ by the agent.

It’s clean, it’s tidy and it is the kind of house you can just walk into, drop your belongings and settle into. It just doesn’t have enough of 1964 for us. Saying that, we love the bar-like kitchen area, can imagine that being a cool place to hang out.

As for the rest of the space, that includes four bedrooms and two bathrooms within the 2,938 sq. ft., along with a good amount of reception space and a finished basement area. Outside, you’ll find double garaging and what looks like a decent bit of land around too.

More images on the listing, with the asking price at $524,900, which works out at around £312,500.

Another Huf Haus is new to the market, specifically this six-bedroom Huf Haus in Ringwood, Hampshire.

It’s a substantial place, sat in a good amount of land too. In fact, it sits in around one acre private and landscaped gardens, with a location that offers views over the River Avon and Avon Valley as well as 60ft of its own river frontage, plus fishing rights to go with it.

The house pretty much speaks for itself. After all, it’s a Huf Haus, so we’re talking beams and glass and a predominantly open plan layout, all designed in Germany and built by the company’s own tradesmen onsite. The end result is a stylish eco-friendly house, with more than a bit of luxury and plenty of balconies to take advantage of those views.

Did we mention space? There’s certainly plenty of that over the three floors. The lower ground has a games / snooker room, a cinema room with 65-inch screen, a plant / utility room, two bedrooms (one of which is en-suite), a family bathroom and a garden / sitting room.

Head up to the ground and you’ll find a reception hall (which contains the central staircase), a sitting run, dining room, a music and hobbies room, study and a kitchen / breakfast room. Up a further level and you have a galleried landing, a bedroom with large dressing room and en-suite plus three further en-suite bedrooms.

We mentioned all that space outside, but there’s also a bespoke barbecue house that’s finished in Portland Stone and with a ‘zinc floating roof’, along with a massive quadruple garage.

Talking of large, this place has a guide price of £3,450,000. More images on the agent’s site.

We spotted this for sale, but after a little more research, we also found that it was up as a holiday rental too. Which perhaps makes this 1960s Andre Maisonnier-designed modernist property in Val de Saone, central France more accessible than you think.

Details vary slightly between the sites, but not by much. Essentially, this was designed and built at the back end of the 1960s (possibly even touching into 1970), the work of Andre Maisonnier, who was a pupil of Le Corbusier.

At first glance, it still look like the space age house of the 1960s. But the fact that this is being offered as a holiday let perhaps gives you an insight into what to expect beyond the front door. Yes, it’s very much the modern house. But with a futuristic design like this, a clean modern-day interior works well inside. It probably helps with renting it out as a holiday home too.

As for layout, that’s down as bin a ‘large room’ with kitchenette, a large dining and living area, bathroom/ WC, a double bedroom with en-suite and two further bedrooms.

Outside, you’ll notice this house on stilts is surrounded by water (it’s on a small private island apparently), with fishing rights should that be your thing – or plenty of hiking and biking options if not. There’s also mention of a ‘gourmet’ restaurant nearby too, should you really want a lazy time of it.

It dates back to 1955 and looks to have originality very much at its heart. Just one look at the exterior should tell you that, but a closer look at the wooden cabinets and ornate metalwork also gives that impression too.

Saying that, although the details don’t mention it, there is the look of a recent renovation here too – and possibly even some more recent added space. You’ll have to contact the agent or book a visit to verify one way or the other. But what is sure is that this place does need a few finishing touches before anyone moves in. Not necessarily a bad thing.

Talking of which, that outside space includes a greenhouse, guest house, pool cabana and large pool, all of which is sat within 1.49 acres.

In need of renovation: Once-restored five-storey mill and cottage in Diss, Norfolk http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/2014/04/18/in-need-of-renovation-once-restored-five-storey-mill-and-cottage-in-diss-norfolk/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=in-need-of-renovation-once-restored-five-storey-mill-and-cottage-in-diss-norfolk http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/2014/04/18/in-need-of-renovation-once-restored-five-storey-mill-and-cottage-in-diss-norfolk/#comments Fri, 18 Apr 2014 16:47:10 +0000 WowHauser http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/?p=7284 Once-restored five-storey mill and cottage in Diss, Norfolk

We love a listing that leaves us wanting more. Which is exactly what we get with this once-restored five-storey mill and cottage in Diss, Norfolk.

Once-restored five-storey mill and cottage in Diss, Norfolk
Once-restored five-storey mill and cottage in Diss, Norfolk

Ok, it might be nice to have just a little more, but we’re intrigued, that’s for sure. Part of that is because of so few photos being made available, but also because these period buildings were restored back in the 1960s.

What’s on offer is a five storey mill and a Victorian cottage, both of which are within half an acre of land and with frontage to the River Waveney.

The mill was converted by the current owner in the 1960s and has apparently ‘seen little alteration since’. However, it has been vacant for the last 12 years or so and does need refurbishing. But a look at the kitchen suggests something rather distinctive here already if you can do the work or want to try your own Grand Design. Within that mill is a living room on the ground floor, a kitchen floor, three bedrooms and bathroom over two floors, along with an upper floor which has ‘panoramic views’ across Diss and beyond. it also has a new double garage attached.

The mill cottage dates from around the mid-1800s and has been empty since the 1980s, requiring a complete renovation. Guessing that’s why pictures if the interior are so thin on the ground.

All are being sold as one lot, with a guide price of £395,000.

Interesting one this, not least because this 1970s modernist property in Ludlow, Shropshire comes with an affordable price tag.

The house dates from the 1970s (according to the agent), but we don’t have an architect. But we do have the architect’s original design, with this place pretty much untouched over the decades.

That means the original expanse of glass is still here, as is the wood panelling and if you love your period fixtures, the original staircase (now with a stairlift it seems) and what looks like the original kitchen. It needs updating, that’s for sure, but there’s a nice authentic template to play with here.

As for layout, a porch leads into a central hall, from which you’ll find a family room with doors giving access to the garden. Along from that is a large bathroom, a ground floor bedroom, a small kitchen and WC.

Outside space looks plentiful too, described as having a mature tree lined driveway, around 0.55 acres of land with lawns, trees and shrubs along with a separate summer house, various sheds, a store and a detached garage.

We are guessing the 1970s, but it’s probably a fair guess. What we get off the ant is that this is one of just three ‘unique’ architect-designed homes and the work of a local builder.

The partly-vaulted ceilings, part wood cladding and full-length windows survive from the original era, as does the distinctive staircase inside. But overall, the house has been modernised over the years. Not overly so though, it has just moved along through the decades. If you want to add your own 1970s flavour back in, shouldn’t really be hard to do.

What you do get though is plenty of space. According to the listing, there is around 3,000 sq. ft. in total. That includes a double aspect 22 ft. sitting room with sliding doors out to the garden, a family room, a dining room with more sliding doors to the outside space, a kitchen with walk-in larder and a large utility room on the ground floor,

It’s an impressive house, but the big selling point of this Sadler Brown-designed coastal modernist property in Seaton, Devon is definitely the view.

According to the agent, this newly-built property has been a project of the current powders for the past year, who essentially wanted a house to match the setting. We say ‘job done’, with all the rooms offering views over the historic village of Beer, its beach and the Dorset coast. A great sight to wake up to on a July morning you would imagine.

Modern in every respect, this place has the likes of a Heat Recovery System, solar panels and underfloor heating, along with Nuvo sound, a Lutron mood lighting system, the latest Miele and Neff appliances, wiring for a home cinema setup and the kind of security you would expect of a place like this.

How do you fancy living out your Elvis fantasy? Well, if you have the cash, Elvis Presley’s midcentury honeymoon retreat in Palm Springs, California, USA has just gone up for sale.

That’s essentially the selling point for many – and perhaps why the price is so high. Both the agent and the seller seem very keen to push the Elvis connection. In fact, looking at some of the shots, it’s literally a shrine to the man and his time here with Priscilla. But let’s be honest, that’s not really surprising. Elvis, even years after his death, is still a commercial giant.

That emphasis perhaps takes away from the actual house, which is a rather bold piece of architecture. Indeed, it was described as ‘The House Of Tomorrow’ back in the day. According to the agent, the house was designed in four perfect circles, on three  different levels, mixing glass and ‘peanut brittle stonework’ for some very hip indoor-outdoor living.

Space inside includes four bedrooms and five bathrooms, with the overall theme being very faithful to the original era. Some updating, but a strong element of the 1960s is still present in this place. Outside you have your own secluded grounds, which includes a pool, a stage, a private garden area, tennis court and a fruit orchard.

If you want to be Elvis for the foreseeable future, the asking price is $9,500,000. It sounds a bit better as £5,656,445 – but still a Lotto win away for most of us.
