This one offers so much potential. A substantial 1960s time capsule house in Lincoln, Lincolnshire is up for sale.

It is known as Mill Cottage and was designed by architect John Roberts over 50 years ago. Has it changed since? Not that you would notice.

The architecture itself seems like it hasn’t changed at all and I am not seeing a lot of detail altered inside either. Quote something in light of all the time passing.

So much to appreciate, from the angled roof and expansive single-storey layout through to the full-height windows, exposed brick, that wonderful period fireplace, the bar area and the untouched 1960s kitchen and period bathroom. This is potentially someone’s dream 1960s pad.

Ok, some of the carpets might be more recent, as well as some light fittings and a coat of paint here and there. But nothing really outside of that. Empty and offering up so many possibilities. The page plot might be a worry in light of the house remaining, but it is priced to sell and the agent doesn’t hint at this being a ’knockdown’.

I mentioned the plot, which takes in something like 2.28 acres. The house sits on the edge of a natural escarpment, which means ‘superb far-reaching views’ across Lincoln and beyond. A big selling point in itself.

But for me, the house matches it and more. Walk in and you take in a light and open entrance hall with a glass sliding door opening on to the garden.

That area is open-plan through to the bar area which is galleried and overlooks the sitting room. That’s quite a space in its own right, being both dual aspect and benefitting from the wonderful 1960s feature fireplace.

The colourful vintage kitchen beyond that (please don’t even think of taking that out), a utility room with a door to the WC and access to the integral double garage.

Between the bar and the kitchen is a dining room which overlooks the driveway, while a ‘long and light corridor’ leads to the master bedroom with a wall of built-in wardrobes concealing its en-suite bathroom, along with three further bedrooms, a family bathroom and a shower room.

That substantial outside space includes a tarmac driveway with hard standing for several vehicles, a garden mostly laid to lawn, a paved pathway around the property and a block paved terrace off the sitting room.
