Big thanks to Gareth Davies for pointing us in the direction of this 1970s four-bedroom modernist property in Cheadle, Cheshire.
It needs updating, there’s no question of that, regardless of whether you love the era or not. The kitchen looks recent, but outside of that, not a lot seems to have changed over the decades, from the flooring to the lighting fittings and especially the bathrooms and dressing areas.
But that’s just decor in the main. This is still an impressive house that would lend itself to modern living very easily. It is down as an individually designed property, found in one of Cheadle’s ‘premier locations’ and packed with interesting features, note least the extensive glazing, the exposed stone inside and out, some rather grand internal doors, fitted units (and ‘unusual’ wall cladding) along with the well-maintained and extensive plot. With a bit of imagination, this could be a dream modernist hangout.
Space certainly isn’t going to be an issue. On the ground floor you’ll find an enclosed porch, spacious entrance hall with cloak room and WC, the master bedroom with dressing room and en-suite bathroom, a large ‘entertaining’ lounge/dining area with patio doors to the connecting sun lounge, a second sitting room, a further dining room and a fitted kitchen. A rear hall leads to a utility room, downstairs WC and access to the double garage.
Head up to the first floor and you’ll find two further double bedrooms plus the family bathroom with WC and separate shower cubicle. The house sits well back from the road, with the area around laid out with lawn, further landscaped gardens and a large paved area, along with a driveway to the previously mentioned garage.
Not for everyone, but if it takes your fancy, it’s offers around £750,000.
