For Sale: 1960s Birkin Haward-designed midcentury property in Ipswich, Suffolk


An amazing house has just come onto the market - this Birkin Haward-designed six-bedroom house in Ipswich, Suffolk, which is largely untouched since being built over 50 years ago.

This wasn’t just another build for the architect, it was designed by the celebrated architect Birkin Haward in 1960 on a large, private plot for the architect’s own family. It has also been listed by English Heritage for being 'influential on many architects'. So some pedigree.


A flick through the photos (there are more on the listing too) shows a house that could be off the pages of a magazine of the era, right down to the period artwork on the wall. It might need some attention, but not a great deal.


For your money, you get  six bedrooms, along with a large ground-floor hall, a first-floor living area, a workshop, a kitchen and a dining room are also on the first floor. Some great features too, including the double-height central space that is largely glazed from floor-to-ceiling to take in the views. Good space outside too, with a once acre plot offering lawns, woodland, a driveway, a car port and storage areas.

If you fancy it, the agent has the house listed for £695,000.
