A general trawl through the property websites has conjured up this gem, the 1960s J Roy Parker-designed Colonus four-bedroomed house in Neston, Cheshire.
J Roy Parker is a renowned architect, the man behind Liverpool’s Everyman Theatre for example, as well as a number of modernist properties around this area. Indeed, this one is apparently mentioned in the Cheshire Volume of Nikolaus Pevsner and Edward Hubbard’s ‘The Buildings of England’.
On the face of it, the design is true to the original 1960s plan, but according to the agent, it has been ‘carefully maintained and sympathetically extended’. Nothing too untoward, but a viewing will doubtless be required to see it all sits together well.
In terms of accommodation, a wide recessed porch leads to a reception hall with exposed brick and ‘cloaks cupboard’. From that, there’s a downstairs bathroom, lounge (with doors to the courtyard), dining room, a kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and an inner hall with built-in wardrobes.
The property also has a study with built-in office furniture (ideal if you are working from home), bedroom one with exposed brick walls, bedroom two/snug, a second and third bathroom, along with a third and fourth bedroom.
Outside, you’ll find a garage with remote-controlled doors, landscaped gardens and an enclosed courtyard. £595,000 is the asking price.
