Big thanks to Pete for flagging up an absolute gem in Liverpool, specifically this James Hunter-designed Man House in Woolton, Liverpool, Merseyside.
It’s a midcentury-style bungalow, the work of American architect James Hunter back in 1964 and a house that is all about space – both with a large plot and an open plan design that screams a bygone era. That, despite some serious renovation, which thankfully takes into account the heritage and history of the house.
The accommodation comprises of an open planning kitchen/dining area which opens out into a spacious lounge, three good sized bedrooms and a separate bathroom and w.c. The overhanging flat roof is supported by ‘maple’ solid wood beams and is covered by a rubber membrane commonly used in commercial construction for its durability. Externally there are landscaped gardens to the front, back and sides of the property with the addition of off road parking.
We did feature this initially, when the price was well above the £500,000 mark. But we’ve just noticed a considerable drop in price for this midcentury gem, the asking price now down to £449,950. OK, still not a bargain, but with the best part of £100,000 off the asking price, it does make the place much more appealing.
