Back to UK houses and this 1960s Ralph Baldwin midcentury-style property in Welwyn, Hertfordshire.
A house built by the architect for his own use, this late-1960s build is on just its second owner (also an architect) and someone who has made ‘a number of sympathetic updates’ to the property, creating something larger and indeed, something ready to move into and requiring just your own personal touch.
But plenty of originality here too, with the wood panel ceilings, large windows, ‘floating’ walls, not to mention the overall open layout of the place.
The house site in around half an acre of land and overlooking green belt land on a private road, with a private drive taking you through the gardens and up to the house.
Head in through the front door and you’ll find the entrance hall, leading to a family / dining area overlooking the front and back gardens via that floor-to-ceiling glazing. The main reception room has similar glazing, with views out over the long front lawn and beyond.
Head further along and you will encounter the master bedroom with shower room and built-in storage a further bedroom through the internal courtyard (with a small shower room) two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. At the other end of the property is the kitchen, a fifth bedroom (or study if you prefer), a shower room and a large utility room.
Other space includes what is described as an ‘unusually large’ garage with high ceilings, now used as a workshop, but originally used to house the classic cars of the first owner. The rear of that garage has now been converted to a ‘studio annexe’ with kitchen area, shower, WC, sleeping and dining area. Ideal for guests.
£975,000 is the asking price.
