Something very interesting lurks in the north east, this 1970s four-bedroom modernist house in Ponteland, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland.
Architect designed (although there’s no specific mention of which architect), the house dates back to the 1970s, constructed around a central courtyard and with a design that encourages natural light around the place.
It also looks pretty faithful to the original design. Not completely (there’s a fairly new fitted kitchen and contemporary bathroom for example), but the wood panel ceilings, exposed brick walls and overall look/feel look right out of the original decade.
In terms of space, there is an entrance hall, reception hall, 19ft breakfasting kitchen and a 26ft open plan dining room with steps up to a 30ft galleried lounge, which has picture windows overlooking the rear garden and woodland beyond. An inner hall leads to a master bedroom and bathroom, plus a snug/study/sitting room, with a further hall providing access to three good sized bedrooms along with a family bathroom/WC.
There is a double garage with electric door outside, alongside good sized gardens (0.36 acres). Location-wise, it is said to back onto woodland and situated within a cul-de-sac on the periphery of a ‘highly sought after’ estate. So location sounds a winner too.
