Not a stunner from the outside, but the interior of this Peter Charles-Greed-designed house in Burley, New Forest, Hampshire is pure 1960s.Designed in 1968 by the architect for his own use, the house is located on a large, secluded site with a paddock in a peaceful part of the New Forest National Park. Inspired by Alvar Aalto and Frank Lloyd Wright, it’s all about space inside, with large rooms and floor-to-ceiling windows. But best of all, the lavish interior from the 1960s is still pretty much in place – including lots of built-in marble and American walnut furniture and some great period light fittings. For lovers of the era, it’s a dream.
Just two bedrooms, but both are large, as are most of the other rooms, which include a study, huge living room, dining room and garden room. There’s also ample outside space (around five acres) and a double garage, plus permission to extend further if you wish.
