The house is the work of ‘renowned’ architect Robert Clark, dating back to 1960. We don;t know much about Mr Clark, but according to the agent he is a man known for ‘connective spaces’, ‘open windows’ and ‘natural woods’. All of which come into play here.

Once inside you can enjoy the open spaces, the extensive use of wood and the floor-to-ceiling glazing. But there’s another huge selling point too – originality.

As we said in the title, this looks like something of a time capsule. The house itself is pretty much untouched and it looks like many of the fixtures and fittings probably date from its original decade too.

Ok, you might want to update that kitchen and perhaps the bathrooms aren’t quite up to your 2015 needs. But having so many original finishes, from the stairway and fitted furniture through to the wood-clad walls and exposed brick is definitely a plus.

Decent amount of space too. 2,949 sq. ft. according to the agent, which includes four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The photos also show good-sized office space too, as well as a large garage, which also includes a workshop. The reception space is lovely and roomy too judging by those photos.
