It has been heavily modernised over the years, but this 1960s Malcolm MacDonald-designed four-bedroom property in Lymington, Hampshire is still worth flagging up.
No, we are not talking the former Newcastle and Arsenal striker, this Malcolm MacDonald was a local architect, who designed this place back in 1968 on a site covering around 1.35 acres, with surrounding woodland adding to that privacy.
According to the agent, the house has been ‘altered and improved to embrace the changing requirements of modern life’, but the distinctive shape and some of the original features (like the windows, beams and open space for example) remain.
Enter the house and you’ll be greeted by a large hallways, leading onto a dining hall that’s ideally suited for ‘grand scale entertaining’. There’s also a ‘contemporary glass corridor’ leading from the dining hallway to a secondary sitting room with vaulted ceiling, plus a more recent addition of a study/playroom. A kitchen/breakfast room is on this floor too, opening onto the gated garden, as is a split drawing room.
Upstairs you’ll find four bedrooms, along with three modern bathrooms. The master bedroom and its en-suite also have countryside views. Outside is a driveway with room for plenty of cars, a double garage and that land we previously mentioned, which includes wooded areas, plants, lawns and a grazing paddock.
