Loving this place, both the structure and interior of the 1960s J.E. Bell-designed midcentury modern property in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey.
It’s a five-bedroom detached house on a ‘desirable residential road’, designed for his own occupation by the architect J.E. Bell back in 1966. Some updates and a lot of maintenance have been undertaken since, but this is still a house incredibly sympathetic to the original design.
Large windows, wood panelling, the angular design and the considerable amount of originality all stand out, but the fact that someone has updated the likes of the kitchen and bathroom means this is a house you really can walk into and treat as a modern family home too.
Accommodation includes a 23 ft reception room with glazed doors opening out onto the garden, which is here alongside a double height dining room with a galleried study area above, that newly-fitted kitchen with breakfast room plus four bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor (along with a galleried study area) and a further fifth bedroom (that could potentially be divided into two rooms) on the second floor. A utility area and a single integral garage completes the layout, along with paving stones leading onto gardens on two sides.
Fancy living here? You’ll need to find £820,000 or thereabouts.
