We were told that this 1960s Cox Architects-designed single-storey modernist property in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire sold some time ago, but it seems it has had a change of agent. For that reason, we are flagging it up again, as it’s one of the more intriguing finds of the last few months.
The agent is still sparing with the details, although we do now have an architect’s name to apply to the property. However, the house still seems as valuable as a plot than as a house. There is around 0.45 acres of land, currently laid out as the house and mature gardens. But we hope someone sees being this and looks at the renovation opportunity here, rather than a building plot.
The images show a single-storey place with large windows, exposed brick, wood ceilings, open living spaces and fitted furnishings. It looks to have been left for some time, with the garden starting to grow large around the frame of the house. But it is far from a lost cause and comes packed with the kind of original features it would be tough to replicate in the modern era.
In fact, we think this could be something special with the right vision, internal space being the added attraction. That’s currently down as three bedrooms and two bathrooms, with a kitchen also shown, as well as those open reception spaces. ‘Ample’ parking outside too, along with the previously mentioned gardens and a sought after location.
Not cheap at £495,000, but it could be a great way to fashion your own midcentury modernist home to suit your own tastes.
