For sale: 1960s-designed modernist house in Bentworth, near Alton, Hampshire

Hamp1

Another midcentury modernist gem on the market, this interesting four-bedroom house in Bentworth, near Alton, Hampshire, the work of architects  Gore, Gibberd and Saunders.

Highlighted by respected architectural historian Sir Nikolaus Pevsner in his Buildings of England series as a good example of 1960s design, it has what's described as a 'dramatic' cantilevered roof and clerestory windows and has been sympathetically maintained by the current owner, who has also updated it for the modern era.

In terms of accommodation, the house offers up four bedrooms (one of which is en-suite), a living room that makes the most of the sunlight, a kitchen, large utility room, separate double garage, extensive gardens and double doors in the living room that open out onto a terrace.

The small village of Bentworth is four miles from Alton, which itself is 70 minutes from London's Waterloo station on the train. If all that appeals, offers for the house are invited around the £595,000 mark.
