The current credit crunch means there are less retro houses for sale in the UK – but there are still plenty elsehwere, if you have the money. Something you’ll need yo buy this André Bruyere-designed house in Saint Remy de Provence, Bouches du Rhône, France.
Bruyere designed this in 1968, based on traditional Mediterranean architecture, but throwing in some period 60s space age for an individual feel. Not that it needs much to stand out – the huge one-floor house is sat in one hectare of land, near to a nature reserve. Yes, we’re talking complete isolation, if that’s what you want and with a roof that doubles up as a patio, plenty of space to sit back and admire the landscape.
In terms of specifics, the house has five bedrooms, a reception room, kitchen and bathroom along with two additional studios with kitchen and bathroom, not to mention a separate apartment with kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom. But with a largely open plan space, you can probably swap that around to fit your needs.
£1,415,000 is the asking price – and judging by the interior shots, you might want to put a bit aside for decor too.
