Huf Haus for sale: Four-bedroom property on the Wentworth Estate, Virginia Water, Surrey

Always good to see one of these on the market. Although this four-bedroom Huf Haus on the Wentworth Estate, Virginia Water, Surrey is probably out of reach for most of us. Virginia Water is said to be the most expensive place outside of London to buy a house, with average house prices well past the […]

In need of renovation: 1960s Span House on the Templemere Estate, Weybridge, Surrey

We featured a stunning property on this estate a while back. Perhaps it could be inspiration to update this 1960s Span House on the Templemere Estate, Weybridge, Surrey. It’s actually more refurbishment than restoration, but if you check the house on the link above, you get an idea of just what you can do here. […]

1930s art deco: Four bedroom property in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands

It might be a little overly stylised for some, but this is certainly a very striking 1930s art deco property in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands. Thanks to Louis for the tip off. The exterior of this one is amazing, with the black windows and railings contracting the white finish. Love the curves and angles too. […]

1960s modernism: Empson Hill property in Kendal, Cumbria

Thanks to Peter for pointing us in the direction of this 1960s modernist property in Kendal, Cumbria. Known as Empson Hill, this is a 1960s build that looks largely unchanged in 50 or so years. Of course, that’s not the only appeal. This is a substantial property in Kendal, which is not far from the […]

Not just a good looking piece of architecture, this 1930s art deco property in Ovingdean, near Brighton, East Sussex has also been renovated to an incredibly high standard too.

Something affordable and full of character. This 1960s three-bedroom property in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire.

Well, obviously some things have changed, with a slight update here […]

1960s modernism: Patrick O’Keefe-designed property in Langley, Kent

This is interesting, not least because this 1960s Patrick O’Keefe-designed modernist property in Langley, Kent was on this site when last up for sale some years back. We are actually going back to 2012 in regard to that last sale, which gives us an option to compare and contrast. Unfortunately, back then, we only used […]

1930s art deco: Ted Wilford-designed property in Earl Shilton, Leicestershire

We jumped for joy when we saw this 1930s Ted Wilford-designed art deco property in Earl Shilton, Leicestershire hit the market. That’s because it has been a tough time of late for art deco houses, with a couple featuring on our social media streams that have either been replaced or fallen into severe disrepair. It’s […]

1930s art deco: Gerald Lacoste-designed property in Stanmore, Middlesex

A similar house was one of our most popular finds of 2014. Perhaps this 1930s Gerald Lacoste-designed art deco property in Stanmore, Middlesex will follow suit. But to be honest, you’ll probably have to fall for the exterior rather than the interior. That’s because the house, which is part of the Kerry Avenue Conservation Estate, […]

At the more affordable end of the spectrum is this 1930s apartment in the Frederick Gibberd-designed Pullman Court, London SW2.

1930s art deco: Four-bedroom property in Margate, Kent

It definitely has the look. Sadly, this 1930s art deco property in Margate, Kent doesn’t have the period features. Thanks to Kim for flagging it up. It was obviously renovated in the fairly recent past. The agent mentions a new roof back in 2012, so you would guess work around that date. We have no […]

Grand Design for sale: Five-bedroom modernist property in Colgate, near Horsham, West Sussex

I’m guessing a number of fans of the Grand Designs show will remember this five-bedroom modernist property in Colgate, near Horsham, West Sussex. It’s a notable house for many reasons, but the main one is the size of this place. This was (and perhaps still is) the biggest house ever constructed on the show when […]

Renovation project: 1960s four-bedroom property in Winterbourne Dauntsey, near Salisbury, Wiltshire

It needs work, but this 1960s four-bedroom property in Winterbourne Dauntsey, near Salisbury, Wiltshire looks an interesting prospect. The worry here is the plot. it is talked up by the agent (quite rightly) and covers around 2.25 acres. It might be all too easy for someone to come along and knock this down. But before […]

1970s modernism: Three-bedroom property in Barming, Kent

This 1970s modernist property in Barming, Kent was designed by the current owners and as you might expect, has changed little. To be honest, it doesn’t jump out at you in terms of the exterior. At least, compared to some we have featured. But the interior is an absolute dream. If you love the 1970s […]
