Regular readers might recall a distinctive 1970s property near Scarborough, which we featured a few weeks back. Well, Hugh Martin has spotted a house not a million miles away from that. Also, this 1970s Stan Wilson-designed two bedroom house in Hutton Village, Guisborough, North Yorkshire isn’t a million miles away in terms of location either.
Same architect? We don’t know, but it’s not beyond the realms of possibility. This house dates to 1971 and to be honest, doesn’t look to have changed in the 40 years since. A glimpse inside shows an empty property just waiting for an update or for your ’70s design classics to slip back in. It’s your call. As for that location, you’ll find the house, which is a part masonry and part timber construction, at the head of Hutton Village with the lounge and study windows having south facing views towards the nearby forestry. It also looks pretty secluded, based on the shots of the house on the site.
In terms of accommodation, the ground floor has an open canopied entrance with quarry tiled steps, leading to an entrance hall with quarry tiled floor, panelled walls, an open plan staircase and door giving internal access to the garage. You’ll also find a utility room, a guest bedroom and a cloakroom.
Head upstairs and you’ll find a landing, a spacious lounge with those south facing views, along with a solid fuel ‘Anthrasite’ stove and sliding door to the study. You’ll also find a dining room, an open plan kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom (very of its era). Outside, there’s a drive, a coal store, a garden store, the integral garage with storage area/workshop and a patio, lawn, pond trees and shrubs.
All of that for offers around £275,000.
