For sale: 1960s Laurie Abbott-designed house in Frimley, Surrey

Laurence1

A house that could only have been built in the 1960s – this Laurie Abbott-designed house in Frimley, Surrey.

Built in 1966 as part of a small development of similar properties, it was designed by Abbott, who until his recently was a senior director at the Richard Rogers Partnership, instrumental in the creation of the Pompidou Centre and Lloyd's of London. Some pedigree.

Sadly, the stunning exterior doesn't quite match up on the inside, the current owners having 'sympathetically maintained and updated' the house, but judging by the internal shots, a lot of that 60s character seems to be missing. Sure you'll be able to put it back easily enough though.

In terms of specifics, there's a reception and utility on the ground floor, a kitchen and breakfast room plus bathroom on the first, then three bedrooms on the second floor. Outside is a courtyard, communal gardens and a single garage. Price? A reasonable-sounding £265,000.
