It’s a good-looking piece of architecture that has survived and aged incredibly well. Note that this house was constructed back in 1956, so it has remained largely unchanged for over 65 years. Impressive.

That’s not just down to luck, it is also down to the owners of this place. Yes, the fixtures and fittings, as well as the finishes have no doubt changed over the decades. But nothing significant structurally. That’s the big selling point here.

So yes, a fairly recent kitchen as you can see and fixtures like a stove and some modern furniture. But beyond that, it’s a midcentury modern gem.

The architecture itself of course, with its flipped layout pushing the reception space upstairs, adding in plenty of natural light and some wonderful views. You can even take advantage of the good weather too, courtesy of the balcony space attached.

Once inside, you’ll see how large and bright that reception is. Also note the lovely pine-clad ceilings, the wood floors, some exposed brick and that eye-catching open-tread staircase. All lovely details to have.

And as I said, so well-maintained too. It also remains something of a blank canvas too once you look beyond the furnishings. If you want to go down a retro route with this one, I suspect that would work well in terms of colour and pattern, not to mention some vintage (or vintage-style) furnishings.

A good amount of space too – and I mean both inside and out. In fact, there’s a summer house tucked away at the end of the garden, as well as a large garage area.

But in terms of the inside space, the first floor has that wonderful open-plan lounge and dining area with a large balcony enjoying some appealing views over and beyond the garden.

The kitchen also has a small balcony overlooking the private front garden too, which isn’t something you see very often.

The inner landing leads to three double bedrooms, all with pine vaulted ceilings and all sharing a modern bathroom space.

Head down that wonderful staircase and check out the ground floor layout, which is made up of a central hallway with a shower room, located opposite the guest bedroom and the adjacent large home office. Of course, if you don’t work from home I’m sure you can think of another use for it.

The utility room leads to the integral double garage that has an automated roller door and is apparently ‘convertible in whole or part’.

The front garden is approached via electric gates with an intercom entry phone and the driveway offers parking space as well as a route to the garage. The southerly facing rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with a deck and patio while a large deck and that summerhouse are found towards the rear boundary. Around a third of an acre of outside space.

Fancy it? If you do you’ll need something in the region of £895,000.
