It has been updated of late (judging by the photos), but this 1970s architect-designed property in Bideford, Devon still packs a punch.

Sat in around 0.65 acres of land and bordering on countryside, the house was designed and built by a local architect in 1973 for the unnamed person’s own habitation. The result is a distinctive place that looks to be a house of two halves, although that’s intentional rather than being an older build incorporated into the design.

The rather unique shape is obviously a selling point, as are the vaulted ceilings, large expanses of glass and the different textures and materials outside, which include stone, slate and wood. But this isn’t just a retro pile – the current owners have modernised, most notably with the kitchen, which has been extended to create a contemporary kitchen breakfast room with floor to ceiling windows and doors leading out to a patio/bbq area.

As for the other space, two large wooden doors open into a vaulted hallway entrance. On the ground floor, there is that kitchen/breakfast room, with an upper floor offering a spacious living room with part vaulted ceiling, a raised wood burning fireplace and a ‘wall of windows’ to the rear with views over the garden. Also on this floor is the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, two further bedrooms and the family bathroom. On the lower floor is a large family/play room, two more bedrooms and a shower room, which could be used as a self-contained annexe.

A door from the lower landing leads to the integral double garage which has some fitted storage and a utility area for a washing machine and tumble dryer. At one side of the house is a block paved area for numerous vehicles. The garden covers the bulk of the 0.65 acres, but note that restrictions mean you can’t build on it.

If that’s good with you, £549,950 is the price.
