For sale: 1960s mid-century-style house in Jordans, Buckinghamshire

Jordans1

Designed back in the 1960s by Gresham Dodd, this mid-century-style house in the sought-after location of Jordans, Buckinghamshire is what you might call a ‘project’.

It’s a single story house, with a design influenced by Mies van der Rohe, Craig Ellwood and Philip Johnson and little changed from the day it was built – which means wall-to-wall windows for enjoying the view and wood paneling throughout. And those views are guaranteed – a covenant on the land forbids any further building.

The accommodation includes three bedrooms, two kitchen/living rooms and
two bathrooms, but there are architect plans available to convert to a
five-bedroom house.

It’s all a big ‘ask’ in the current financial climate though – £635,000
is the price being sought and that’s before any modernisation. But if
you’ve got cash to spare, it could be worth considering.
