One of the best houses we have seen has just gone up for sale – the 1950s Peter Womersley-designed Klein House in Selkirk, Scottish Borders. Pretty much unchanged since the 1950s, this is midcentury modern heaven inside and out.
One of the finest midcentury properties in Britain is up for sale – this Peter Womersley-designed Farnley Hey house in Farnley Tyas, near Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
Its stunning four-bedroom home with spectacular views over the Pennines, designed by architect Peter Womersley in 1954 as a wedding present to his brother. It was impressive then and it is impressive now – because Farnley Hey has been maintained in its original condition. Give or take a few appliances and utilities, you could be walking back into 1954 when you walk into this house.
Not the kind of property you would expect to find in bath, but this 1960s Peter Womersley-designed modernist house in Bath is one you'll not forget in a hurry.
This is apparently the only post war modernist house built within the city, built between 1966 and 1968 to a bold brick and frameless glass design by Womersley – designed to offer unobstructed views of the surrounding countryside.
