For sale: Michael Sassoon-designed 1960s midcentury-style house in Cheadle, Cheshire

Cheadle1

It might not look like much from the outside, but we love the inside of this Michael Sassoon-designed midcentury-style house in Cheadle, Cheshire. Mainly because it's hardly been touched since the day it was built.

We presume that's in the 1960s, it's not entirely clear. But we do know that this three-bedroom house was designed by renowned residential architect Michael Sassoon, one of a number he designed around the area. However, most have been severely updated and look little like an original these days. That's not the case here.

It has a symmetrical mono-pitch roof, with an internal layout creating a 'living' wing and a 'sleeping' wing connected by a reception hallway, all offering up plenty of light, thanks to the widespread use of glass. This particular property has never been on the market before, having been commissioned by the current owners. It also retains many of its best original features, including some eey-catching wood panelling and built-in furniture. It might need some new decor, but structurally, you are buying into a past era.

In terms of specifics, you get an enclosed porch, entrance hall, cloakroom/WC, lounge/dining room, breakfast kitchen, utility room, inner hallways, three bedrooms, an en-suite shower room and a bathroom. The outside space also includes lawns and an integral double garage.

On the market now, it's up for £445,000. Let's hope the developers don't get to it first.
