It might not look at its best from the initial outside shots, but this 1960s midcentury modern single-storey property in Ipswich, Suffolk, flagged up by @stefiorazi, is a cool ’60s home waiting for some love and attention.
The house dates from 1965 and is available with no onward chain. It has certainly been looked after over the decades, but does need some work to bring it back to its best. But the crucial thing here is originality – this is packed with original features that fans of the era will love.
The doors, the windows, the exposed brick, the angled wood-clad ceilings, internal wood fittings – we love it all. You might even be able to do a dal for some of the furnishings too, some of which will be sought after in their own right. It is one of five similar architect designs on the same close, this one sat in an elevated position, backing onto fields, with ‘views of the valley’ at certain times of the year. Location sounds a plus.
As for the house, the images perhaps give the best idea of this place, but as a breakdown, you get an entrance lobby, cloakroom, kitchen with built-in pantry, dining area with access to outside terrace, lounge area, with same access to outside space, a study (or bedroom three), inner lobby, two bedrooms and a bathroom with separate WC.
Outside, you’ll find a large driveway, double garage plus front and rear gardens.
How much for all of that? Offers of around £249,995.
