Thanks to the ‘anonymous tipster’ for flagging up a house that might not look much from the outside, but is something incredibly interesting inside – this 1950s architect-designed three bedroom house in Towcester, Northamptonshire.
It looks like a pretty modern house from the outside, but inside, you get an idea of its original era – this house was designed and built in 1954, with a look inside that’s hardly changed since the house first appeared. It will be a shame if the house gets gutted, but we suspect a house on a ‘sought after’ road might well suffer that fate.
The images give a good impression of what you get inside, but in terms of specific accommodation, the house offers access via an entrance porch, which leads to an entrance hall with herringbone wood block flooring and in turn leads to the dining room, sitting room and a kitchen/breakfast room with walk-in pantry. There’s also a cloakroom on the ground floor.
Head upstairs and you’ll find a first floor landing with storage, along with a master bedroom with fitted furniture and en-suite, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside, you’ll find a large block brick driveway, a 120ft wide format garden, a garage and workshop, a large greenhouse and a league lawned rear garden.
There is also room to build further houses on the plot, but a ‘clawback’ clause will mean you’ll have to pay the seller a chunk of the profits if you go for that. £495,000 is the asking price.
