This 1970s Tim Organ-designed modernist property in Chew Stoke, Somerset has a familiar name behind it.
At least, familiar to our site readers. You might recall this place in Chewton Mendip in the same county from last year, which had a striking extension courtesy of Robert and Tim Organ. It wasn’t their only project, with an impressive back catalogue of builds to their names.
This time it is Tim on his own, putting this place together just a couple of years later in 1970.
Has it changed? We would guess it has, but we suspect not a great deal. The agent mentions that some areas have been refurbished, not least the kitchen. But overall, there is a good amount of originality here.
A look at the photos obviously highlights the angled ceilings, the wood panelling and the large open reception space. Elsewhere, everything looks pretty fresh, as if this place has been looked after and updated as and when required. But the look and feel is still very much the original era.
As for space, you head up a ‘generous’ driveway / parking area which leads to the large single garage. A further pathway to the side of the property leads to the front door, which in turn opens to the reception hall, then onto the sitting room via double doors.
That room has sliding doors leading to the patio area and beyond, as well as a window overlooking the rear garden and ‘feature’ fireplace. More double doors access that refurbished kitchen, with access outside from there. This area of the house also has a garden room with two sets of sliding doors to the patio and the rear garden.
At the other end of the house are the bedrooms, which include the master bedroom, two further double bedrooms, a very distinctive family bathroom and a shower room.
Outside is that garage we mentioned, as well ‘an attractive garden’, which is a mix of lawn and established plants.
An interesting place with potential to sharpen up and take up a notch or two. £625,000 is the asking price.
