Thanks to Stefi Orazi for pointing us in the direction of this wonderful 1970s Boston Saunders Architects-designed Lantic House in Haslingfield, near Cambridge.
Lantic House dates back to 1975, designed by Boston Saunders Architects, a noted and forward-thinking Cambridge practice responsible for a number of high profile commercial and residential projects in the area.
This one looks pretty much untouched or at least, incredibly well maintained in almost 40 years, with the obvious exceptions of the kitchen and bathroom as you would expect. But looks can be deceptive, with a more recent master bedroom extension dating back just a few years. That’s the exception though, which much of this place oozing originality.
The focal point of the house / design is a double-height main living space and what the agent describes as ‘broad expanses of glass’ that flood the place with natural light. There’s also a spiral staircase and tiled flooring ‘of the same specification as London’s Barbican’. Outside of that, there’s plenty of living space too, with five bedrooms across the two levels (including that extension), a kitchen / breakfast room, a living room, dining room, utility room and two bathrooms, plus a downstairs WC.
Outside space is described as mature gardens, with a gravel driveway and a detached double garage.
Offers in the region of £850,000 if you are interested.
