This week’s retro properties on WowHaus


It's not just retro/vintage houses on WowHaus, but this week has been a good week for that kind of property. Here's a quick recap of you some you might have missed. More on the site obviously.

1960s Jacques Rabinel-designed modernist villa in Aulnay-sur-Mauldre, near Paris, France

1960s modernism, on the doorstep of Paris and significantly restored in the last 10 years, creating something of a retro/modern hybrid. Still a very cool place to live though.

Three-bedroom 1930s art deco property in Carmarthen, South Wales

Art deco doesn't often come cheap, but this place on the outskirts of Carmarthen needs updating. It has the look, but needs some love and attention to bring it back to its best. But at £130,000, it has potential.

Four-bedroom semi-detached 1930s art deco property in London N2

From one extreme to another. From a property in Wales in need of work to a seriously renovated art deco place in a hip part of London. I think you can guess which is the more expensive place to live.

Five-bedroom 1970s modernist property in Macclesfield, Cheshire

Built to a high standard in the 1970s, very little has changed with this gem in Cheshire. From the design right through to the fittings, this is a house lost in time. You'll be blown away by the bathrooms.

1930s Berthold Lubetkin-designed five-bedroom modernist property in London SE18

Described as 'one of the most important Modern Movement buildings in Britain', this place is freshly renovated and an absolute stunner. This terrace isn't cheap, but it's not as expensive as you might imagine either.

1960s four-bedroom midcentury modern property in Tarporley, Cheshire

Designed by an architect for his own use, this place (extension aside) has changed little over the year, offering an interesting and spacious house with plenty of period features.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh-designed Artist’s Cottage & Studio and South House in Inverness, Scotland

From an original Charles Rennie Mackintosh design, the house was only actually built in the 1990s, but is still a very interesting place to browse. Quirky, that's for sure.
