Modernism with a Scandinavian influence, courtesy of this 1960s modernist property in Hertford, Hertfordshire.
The house was individually designed and built by the current owners in (we are guessing) the 1960s, with a waterside location that’s ‘within reach’ of Hertford North mainline station.
It perhaps needs some updating, but that’s not a negative. This place is packed with character, not least with its large studio, space formerly used as a coach house and with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. If you work from home )or want to), this could be the space for you.
Elsewhere, little seems to have changed since the original build, right down to those wonderful bunk beds in one of the bedrooms. Large windows, beams and an open plan living area naturally.
In terms of space, an entrance lobby has access to a utility room and the main ground floor accommodation, which is the open plan living area, a dining room, kitchen and further living area. Head up the staircase and you’ll find four bedrooms and a wonderful 1960s family bathroom.
Back on the ground is that studio, with lots of space for working, as well as a ‘snug’ area with cast iron burner and galleried mezzanine. Other space includes a garage (with access to studio) and gardens, which also house vegetable beds, lawns and a shed, with access to an old millstream.
£750,000 is the price.
