Wow1

Another week of the old and the new at WowHaus - this is our pick of the retro properties from the site this week.

Unrestored 1960s Harley Sherlock-designed three-bedroom property on the Southwood House Estate, London N6

Pictured above is an exterior that really doesn't do this place justice. Once inside, you'll know what we mean, Hardly touched since the early 1960s, it is packed with period features and would make a great canvas for a 60s-inspired living space.

1960s Powell Alport-designed midcentury modern property in Cyncoed, Cardiff, South Wales

1960s architect-designed five-bedroom property in Barnt Green, Birmingham, West Midlands

This is an interesting property. Built by a Danish architect in 1964, it still has plenty of original features, like sliding walls and a spiral staircase, but has been given some retro decor too, creating something of a retro-modern home.

1960s grade II-listed Richard and Su Rogers-designed Rogers House modernist property in London SW19

Saving the best until last. Built in 1968, this grade II-listed Richard and Su Rogers-designed Rogers House modernist property in London SW19 is said to be one of the most important and celebrated houses of the 20th century. It's hardly changed too.

The colours, the glazing, the flexible layout, even the garden is still as it was, which is down to this still being in the family of the iconic architect. Not cheap, but very special.
