We do like what has been done with this 1960s Lyster, Grillet and Harding-designed townhouse in Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire.
The house is one of a group of six from the architects, five of which are connected as a mini terrace and sit on the north west side of the town.
A mix of the old and the new, offering a very liveable and stylish space for a family. The old includes the woodblock flooring, wood ceilings and the wonderful concrete spiral staircase, Possibly the internal doors too, which certainly sit well with the overall retro-modern look of the place.
The pick of the internal rooms is the double-aspect open plan living / dining room with full height glazing, taking up much of the first floor. In fact, outside of the kitchen and shower room, that’s about all you get on the first floor.
On the second floor are three bedrooms and a family bathroom, while the ground floor offers a fourth bedroom, which is currently used (rather well, we have to say) as a study / office. If you work from home (or plan to), this could be just the job for the home-based 9-5. The ground floor also has a utility room and access to the built-in garage.
Outside you’ll find a private garden area to the rear (currently paved) and some off-street parking space to the front of the house.
A lovely property and a very practical one too. £425,000 is the asking price.
