The agent’s write-up says: ‘This is a superb opportunity to create your very own contemporary Grand Designs home’. We think the opposite – this 1960s architect-designed five-bedroomed house in Frodsham, Cheshire could be a seriously cool period pad.
But right now, it’s not great, we’ll be honest. Aside from the wood-clad exterior and the overall design, which is an amazing piece of quirky 1960s architecture – or at least, we presume it to be from that period. The agent doesn’t give anything away.
Not that we’re looking at what the agent has said. we’re just thinking about all that space in a sought-after area of the town, with access to the motorway network and a decent train line to Manchester.
Looking past that dated decor and clutter, there’s a lot of space too. From the ground floor, there’s an entrance conservatory, hallway, cloakroom, living room, feature dining room, utility/recycle room, kitchen, conservatory and garden room. The first floor has a master bedroom suite with dressing area and en-suite bathroom, four further bedrooms and main bathroom/WC. The property stands in a landscaped garden plot with panoramic views to the rear.
All of that for £395,000. Plus of course, the money you’ll need to do the work.
