For sale: 1960s architect-designed house in Ansty, Dorset


Fancy a break from the hustle and bustle of the big city? This superb 1960s architect-designed house in Ansty, Dorset is waiting for you…at a price.

Initially design by David Levitt with later additions by Alison and Peter Smithson, the house is described as one of finest architect-designed homes in Britain and in a perfect location – overlooking a lake and a 13th century church. 

The character of the original design has been maintained, with the
accomodation including two bedrooms (one with en-suite), entrance area,
reception, kitchen/dining area, larder and plenty of garden, not to
mention a separate Smithson-designed summer house/artist’s studio and
Smithson-designed poured concrete path that leads from the driveway, up
the garden and to the front of the house.

In fact, the house is so significant, it even has its own archive at
the V&A. £800,000 will get you ownership to this ‘lost Modernist
masterpiece’ – a shrewd investment if you have money to invest.
