Space and style offered with this 1970s Philip Allison-designed midcentury modern property in Stoke Row, Oxfordshire.
The house dates to 1972, designed by the architect for himself and his family both as a living space and a work space. Talking of space, more of that was added by the architect a couple of years later (in 1974).
Not a lot has changed since, so you still get the brick facades, interior wood panelling, the stairway and a mono pitch roof.
It looks like some updating of the interior has taken place, such as the updated kitchen, the bathrooms, the decor and the doors for example. But by and large, this is the house the architect built all those years ago.
So style covered, but what about that space? Well, the extended house offers around 2,390 sq. ft. of accommodation. That includes an entrance hall which opens onto a triple aspect sitting room and dual aspect kitchen / dining room, with stairs leading down and into the family room, which has access to the garden.
The first floor contains five bedrooms and two bathrooms, with the master offering a vaulted ceiling and an en-suite. There is also what’s described as a ‘half landing’ between the ground and first floor with WC and study, which is another room with garden access.
Space can also be found in the internal garage (with wine store), the large utility room and a workshop to the rear of the house. On top of that, there is a ‘large summer house’ in the garden.
Those gardens are doubtless a selling point too, a mix of lawn and fruit trees, a couple of paved areas.
If that sounds like your kind of place, the house is up for sale right now, selling for £925,000.
