We don’t know the name of the architect, the era or much of the background – but we do like The Quarries three-bedroomed house in Old Town, Swindon, Wiltshire.
We would guess 1960s, with the property apparently designed and built by the original owner, producing something incredibly distinct on a private road, backing onto a wildlife area.
It needs some updating, but there is plenty of space to play with here and some nice period features too – like the hallway for example and of course, that ‘jaunty’ shape which really catches the eye.
In terms of layout, we’re talking a ground floor with a large vestibule, three reception rooms, a sunroom, fitted kitchen, utility room and downstairs shower room. To the first floor there are three bedrooms and family bathroom and a large storage area behind a ‘secret door’ in the master bedroom which could be utilised.
Externally the property has a garage, driveway and a basement store, with gardens front and rear.
It’s under offer, so if you are interested, be quick on your feet – £299,950 is the asking price.
