Thanks to Catherine for tipping us off about this 1960s midcentury-style property in St Albans, Hertfordshire. And she does have good reason for doing so.
This is actually her family home, one that is architect designed, although we sadly don’t have the name of the architect concerned. But we do know that it dates from the 1960s and has a midcentury modern look and feel about it.
The exterior is certainly a selling point, very much of its era, even if it has been updated or restored, It’s a similar story inside too.
Full height windows and open plan living is definitely what we would like to see in here and there are other original bits and pieces present at a glance. But overall, the house has been updated / renovated and what looks like to a high standard judging by the images.
The ‘period’ has been put back in with the vintage and retro furnishings dotted about this place. It could probably take more too, should you want to go for the full-on MCM look throughout this place. A 1960s sofa, a George Nelson clock, a vintage mirror, maybe even an Eames reissue. You get the idea. This is a great canvas for creating a midcentury modern home.
As for space, that is all over a single floor and kicks off with an inner hallway with full length windows, leading to there second bedroom with fitted wardrobes, then onto the large, open living room with fireplace. That leads onto the dining room and the rather stylish kitchen area. Off that kitchen is a utility room with storage and of course, those utilities.
A further inner hallways leads onto bathroom and the master bedroom, again with fitted wardrobes and windows to the front.
A driveway outside leads to a single garage and elsewhere you will find a private rear garden screened by mature trees with lawns and decking.
A lovely place and available with a guide price of £560,000.
