For sale: 1960s H-house in Holyport, Berkshire


Described as one one of the most important architect-designed houses in the UK, this H-house in the sought-after location of Holyport, Berkshire could be yours…for a price.

It’s the work of architects Peter Foggo and David Thomas and very much in a mid-century style ( influenced by the Case Study Houses in the US, along with the work of Mies van der Rohe). Even better – this one has had little updating since being built, so you get the look and feel of the original.

The house is a steel, glass and wood construction and shaped like the
letter ‘H’ (which is how it got the name). In terms of accommodation,
well it’s all over a single floor, including a reception/dining room,
kitchen, utility room, three bedrooms and bathroom/WC. Outside is
impressive too, with three large garden areas, a large shared drive and
a double garage.

You’ll need the best part of £800,000 to buy this slice of
architectural history – if you have it, buy it before a developer gets
near it.
