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.

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.

In terms of the specifics, you get around 3,445 sq. ft. inside, which includes a living room that’s very much indoor / outdoor space, along with the updated kitchen, three bathrooms (which certainly aren’t), five decent-sized bedrooms and outside, a large patio, wet bar and pool. Some garaging too judging by the photos.

All of that in a sought after area. That perhaps accounts for the price, which is $1,399,000 – and that’s before you budget for the renovations.

Described as an ‘expansive three-bedroom apartment’ in Dalston, it is on the raised ground floor of a building dating from around 1935 – 1936, originally built as an extension to the German Hospital.

It is now grade II-listed and according to the agent, ‘flats in the building rarely come up for sale’. A good-sized apartment for sale too, with around 1,094 sq. ft. of living space which includes a large entrance hall, taking you into an entertaining space that covers the full depth of the building. You will also get a kitchen at the front with views over the garden square plus space for dining in the middle, along with a sitting area at the rear. Three ‘proper’ double bedrooms too.

Outside of that, you get the original Crittall windows with ‘pivoting’ opening mechanism and access to a communal roof terrace with amazing views. You also get a key to the nearby square too. But note that the ‘extras’ do mean an annual service charge.

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

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

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.

Four-bedroom 1930s art deco property in Bexleyheath, Kent

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.

Four-bedroom 1930s art deco property in Bexleyheath, Kent

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.

An interesting house that seems to offer for the money more than the images suggest. We’re talking about this 1960s three-bedroom modernist property in Newport, Gwent.

1960s three-bedroom modernist property in Newport, Gwent
1960s three-bedroom modernist property in Newport, Gwent

We are guessing 1960s purely because of the look of some of the internal fittings (especially the bathroom), although it might have sneaked into the 1970s.

Either way, it is an individual architect designed property said to be in the ‘sought after’ side of town. It needs work, there’s no denying that. But it is a distinctive design that could be made so much better with a little work and investment.

As we said, a lot for the money, with the main house including a lounge, a kitchen / breakfast room, cloakroom / WC, three of four bedrooms and a family bathroom. Did you read that bit about the ‘main house’? Yes, there is more.

According to the write-up, this also comes with a detached annexe, including a ‘good size’ living room with kitchen area, a bedroom and a shower room. That’s guest space sorted. You also get off-road parking and plenty of garden too for your money.

That money? £239,950.

It is distinctive and unusual, but you would probably have expected that. This modernist conversion in the heart of Hampstead is arranged over two floors, which includes a are reception area at the rear of the property (approximately 600 sq. ft.) with lots or natural light, along with an adjoining kitchen and a glass pitched roof dining room.

There are also two bedroom ‘suites’ and a further reception area built into the eaves on the first floor, which is currently used a study, but is flexible enough to be converted for other uses.

You also get access to a 600 sq. ft. roof terrace, which overlooks the rear garden. From what we can see, kitchen aside, this is a house pretty much unchanged since the late 1960s and as such, is a fascinating design. Whether it remains like that perhaps depends on someone else falling in love with it.

According to the agent, it dates back to 1885, with the first three floors still used today as originally intended, with a large library area on the ground floor and a ‘stunning’ reading room to the first. There are also three basement rooms, all used for storage right now.

But I imagine if you can et the relevant permissions, there is scope to turn this place into domestic living space too. Those period finishes (the stained glass, feature fireplaces and woodwork for example) would certainly add impact and stand out against the identikit apartments you usually find in the city.

There isn’t a lot we don’t like about this Ansham-designed contemporary courtyard house in London SE23. Except perhaps the fact that we can’t afford it.

A very recent build we would presume, the property is described as ‘a rare example of a courtyard house in the capital, one that offers floor to celling glazing in almost all of the rooms, in turn creating a bright and open contemporary living space.

Some lovely detailing too, including the stunning spiral staircase that leads to the pavilion room and the wooden slats (if that is the right word) which break up the white exterior. Outside of that, it’s very much a blank canvas, just waiting for you to move in and make it home.

If you are considering this place, you will no doubt want to know about the space within. Well, once through the front door you’ll find a ‘generously sized’ hallway with glazing onto the courtyard, opening onto the kitchen area with utility and an open plan living and dining room, which in turn has that spiral staircase to the pavilion room, which is essentially a study or fifth bedroom.

If you are wondering about the rest of the places to rest your head, you will find those in the bedroom wing along another glazed corridor.
