For sale: 1960s Rodney Gordon-designed Turnpoint modernist house in Walton-On-Thames, Surrey

Wal1
Not quite original due to an extensive renovation a few years back, but much of this 1960s Rodney Gordon-designed Turnpoint modernist house in Walton-On-Thames, Surrey retains that original period feel.


The architect, best known for working on the likes of the Tricorn Centre in Portsmouth and Trinity Centre in Gateshead, built this house for himself and his wife in the early 1960s in what is now a sought after residential location. Quite a design statement back in the day we would guess.

Head up the brick pathway and past the double garage and you'll find the house in all its glory, complete with its beams, wood cladding, hardwood floors and extensive glazing. Space-wise it offers an open plan living area with kitchen and dining space, a large study area and a hallway, which has access to a guest bedroom suite with shower room. An open staircase takes you to the master bedroom suite with bedroom, dressing room and bathroom with triangular window, along with a balcony which overlooks the main garden area to the front.

The house has modern upgrades, such as a new roof, underfloor heating and a modern kitchen and bathrooms. There's also some appeal to the outside space too, with a large decked terrace, lawns and gardens and a heated pool with a paved terrace and pool house/ boiler room.

As you might have guessed, not cheap at £1,750,000. If you want to see more images, check it out at the WowHaus site or contact the agent.
