The interior has been much updated, but we do love the quirky design of this 1970s architect-designed property in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire.
We are guessing the 1970s, but it’s probably a fair guess. What we get off the ant is that this is one of just three ‘unique’ architect-designed homes and the work of a local builder.
The partly-vaulted ceilings, part wood cladding and full-length windows survive from the original era, as does the distinctive staircase inside. But overall, the house has been modernised over the years. Not overly so though, it has just moved along through the decades. If you want to add your own 1970s flavour back in, shouldn’t really be hard to do.
What you do get though is plenty of space. According to the listing, there is around 3,000 sq. ft. in total. That includes a double aspect 22 ft. sitting room with sliding doors out to the garden, a family room, a dining room with more sliding doors to the outside space, a kitchen with walk-in larder and a large utility room on the ground floor,
On the first floor, via that split staircase, you’ll find a master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and en-suite bathroom, four further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Outside, there is parking for three or four cars, a garage for three cars, a courtyard garden, rear gardens, a decked patio, ornamental pond, greenhouse and summer house with the fifth of an acre.
£799,950 is the guide price.
