Time capsule for sale: 1960s modernist property in Grayshott, Hampshire

Huge thanks to Ben for pointing us in the direction of this 1960s modernist property in Grayshott, Hampshire, which is something if a puzzle.

The second of our Scottish double header is this 1970s modernist property in Peebles in the Scottish borders.

On the market: 1960s Ray Moxley and Tim Organ-designed modernist property in Chewton Mendip, Somerset

There is more than initially meets the eye about this 1960s Ray Moxley and Tim Organ-designed modernist property in Chewton Mendip, Somerset. But that’s a good thing. A very good thing. The house sits in what is described as ‘idyllic Somerset countryside’ and at first glance, this is something rather traditional. A historic stone cottage. […]

If you like your houses straight of the 1960s, then you’ll fall head over heels for this midcentury modern property in Richmond, Virginia, USA.

Thanks again to Colette who has found us another gem with potential, this 1960s modernist property in Proche, near Moussac, southern France. We don’t know a great deal about it on truth. We don’t even know for sure if this is a 1960s build. But if it isn’t, it isn’t too far into the 1970s. […]

On the market: 1970s Norman Brooks-designed modernist property in Canvey Island, Essex

Thanks to Stefi Orazi for pointing out this 1970s Norman Brooks-designed modernist property in Canvey Island, Essex, which is something of a time capsule.

Back on the market: 1960s Thomas Glyn Jones and John R Evans-designed modernist property in Dinas Powys, South Wales

We first saw this place back in early 2014 and fell in love with it. The only problem was that we couldn’t afford the asking price for the 1960s Thomas Glyn Jones and John R Evans-designed modernist property in Dinas Powys, South Wales. Perhaps no one else could either as the house is back on […]
