We are too late for this wonderful time capsule, but we’ve arrived just in time for another. Specifically this 1960s modernist property in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire.
It is an individually-designed property, one likely to date from the 1960s and a house largely unchanged over the years. It also has one other big selling factor, which is the large plot and grounds, which also overlooks a nearby golf course. We would guess that accounts for the asking price.
If you are on the hunt for a ‘time capsule’, then this could be the place for you. Yes, some updates here and there (the windows look fairly recent to us), but a look at the photos suggests little change to either the layout or the overall look and feel. A look at the kitchen tells you that.
Of course, some rooms will need updating, not least the bedrooms. But if you are interested in something from this era, the untouched state of this house will have obvious appeal.
Space is also a plus. This one offers a porch, entrance hall (with parquet flooring), two ‘generous’ double bedrooms (en-suite with the master), two single bedrooms, a family bathroom, shower room, a multi-aspect living room with open fire, a dining room, the kitchen / breakfast room, utility and an office which could also be used as a bedroom.
Outside is all of that garden, as well as a triple garage and off-street parking for several cars.
If all of that appeals, you will need around £1,200,000 to own it.
