We’re always conscious, when hunting down properties, to try and mix the pricey design statements with more affordable properties with character. This 1960s architect-designed midcentury-style bungalow in Higham, Lancashire is firmly in the latter category.
That’s not to say it isn’t worth a look. Far from it, It’s a lovely place in a great rural location and although the decor might not be for you, we can imagine this place looking stunning with a little bit of work and the right period furniture inside.
No architect named or indeed a year given for its build. But I think we’re safe with the 1960s. Some nice features too, including full-length windows and exposed brick walls, with plenty of space inside if you like to spread out (or have a larger family).
That includes an entrance hall with floor to ceiling timber window, which opens to the sitting room, a living room with sandstone fireplace and extensive glazing, a study with fitted shelving, a dining room and a fitted kitchen.
There’s also a utility room, an inner hallways, a master bedroom, a second bedroom/office, two further bedrooms, the house bathroom and an attached single garage with workspace.
Outside space includes a driveway with parking for approximately three vehicles, an additional parking and storage area to the side of property and plenty of gardens, which also include a timber garden store and greenhouse.
All of that for around £350,000 – or they’ll do a part exchange for the right property.
