For sale: 1960s-designed High Bank house in Arford, Surrey

Highbank

The credit crunch might be slowing down house sales, but there’s no slowdown in houses heading to market – including this 1960s-designed High Bank house in Arford, Surrey.

Designed in 1963 by London-based architects Murray Ward, it was originally an artist’s house – the large uppers area given over to a studio. That’s changed over the years, with modernisation now leaving a three-bedroom property that’s been ‘sympathetically’ updated.

What does that mean? Well, it means you still get an original
mid-century property with some great period features, including a
concrete fireplace, wooden flooring and exposed walls, but you also get
enough home comforts for the average family – updated heating and new
double glazing heading up the list of recent improvements.

The property also offers an elevated location in a secluded area
(meaning great views of the nearby village and river and little noise),
as well as a workable (one hour) commute to London. The only problem is
likely to be the asking price – £599.950.
