The week at WowHaus: A selection of retro houses you might have missed


It's not all retro houses, but a good few cool 20th century properties make the cut at WowHaus. This is the pick of the week.

1960s midcentury-style Denton House five-bedroom house in Rowlands Gill, Tyne And Wear (pictured above)

This is a stunner. A 1960s midcentury property that still has the originality of the era, both inside and out. The windows, the light fittings, the open spaces – it has it all.

1950s Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired three-bedroom property in Battle Creek, Missouri, USA

Bargain of the week. An untouched, spacious, single-storey property that's been (more or less) untouched since being built back in 1954. You also get plenty of land in the asking price too, which is well under £100,000.

Four-bedroom 1930s art deco property in Frinton-On-Sea, Essex

Designed by Oliver Hill, this sizeable and curvy art deco property has been extended in the past, but very much in keeping. It's now in need of some care and attention to bring it back to its best – with open days scheduled if you want to take a closer look.

Grade II-listed 1930s four-bedroom art deco property in Hampstead Garden Suburb, London N2

From a similar era, this is one of a group of houses grade II-listed in the  Hampstead Garden Suburb, all with those stunning deco looks, although this one is very much the modern home behind the front door. Still a stylish place to live though.

1960s John Lautner-designed The Wolff House in Los Angeles, California, USA

A significant build, The Wolff House in Los Angeles is an iconic property, now renovated back to its best and looking down on Sunset Strip via those huge front windows. You have to see this.
