For sale: 1960s Peter Charles-Greed-designed house in Burley, New Forest, Hampshire


I'm not sure it's all that from the outside, but inside, the 1960s is alive and well in this Peter Charles-Greed-designed house in Burley, New Forest, Hampshire.

Designed in 1968 by the architect for his own use, the house is located on a large, secluded site with a paddock in a peaceful part of the New Forest National Park. Inspired by Alvar Aalto and Frank Lloyd Wright, it's all about space inside, with large rooms and floor-to-ceiling windows. But best of all, the lavish interior from the 1960s is still pretty much in place – including lots of built-in marble and American walnut furniture and some great period light fittings. For lovers of the era, it's a dream.


Just two bedrooms, but both are large, as are most of the other rooms, which include a study, huge living room, dining room and garden room. There's also ample outside space (around five acres) and a double garage, plus permission to extend further if you wish.

Well worth your time to check out the full gallery of interior shots. If you like what you see, you'll probably need a decent Lotto win to secure it. A price tag of £1,495,000 puts it out of reach for most of us sadly.
