It was designed in 1961 by Suffolk architect Barefoot, standing on a large, level plot in the centre of the village of Nacton. The house covers around  3,000 sq ft of space, whilst the plot, which is located on a private road, is over something like half an acre.

The layout is very much open to your own interpretation, with just two rooms used for bedrooms right now. But as there’s a ‘very large’ games room and dressing area, you can see where extras bedrooms cam come from. There is also a kitchen / breakfast room, dining room, living room and sun room (an extension designed by the architect Adam Gordon). To the front of the house is a large parking area, with borders and a double garage.

Geographically, it’s not too far from Ipswich, which itself is around an hour and 10 minutes from central London. So it’s a rural setting without giving up the buzz of the big city. Fancy it? You’ll need around £499,000.
