Looking for a project? This 1970s modernist property in Kelsall, near Tarporley, Cheshire shouldn’t be too taxing.
It should be quite rewarding though, as the house has so much potential. It dates back to 1970 and according to the agent, the design was ‘inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s style’. Not entirely sure about that, but the distictive look is one that appeals to us.
The agent also adds that the house needs ‘sympathetic refurbishment’, which we certainly do agree with. It still has a strong look of the era, but perhaps needs reworking a little. The exterior is pretty much ‘as it was’, with its angular shape and floor to ceiling windows on the upper floor for potentially great views. Nice terrace space up there to.
Inside, it is looking a little tired, but with some work and a rethink of the decor, this really could be on the money. The design itself still holds up. Love the staircase too, although that might be an issue with small children!
In terms of the layout, the ground floor has an entrance hall and three double bedrooms, with an en-suite and dressing area to the master bedroom, plus a family bathroom serving the rest of the house.
The first floor is where you will find the lounge and dining room, along with a study / fourth bedroom and the kitchen with a breakfast terrace, which also has an external staircase.
Outside is a double garage with a garden room to the rear, along with the garden itself.
Offers in the region of £475,000 if you want to take it on.
