Designed by Robert Townsend (for his own use) in the 1950s and now described as 'one of the most important architect-designed houses of its era', Garden Ground in Durrington, Wiltshire is now on the market.

This single-storey, grade II listed property was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright and has altered little since its build, which means plenty of period features to enjoy, including those high ceilings, exposed brickwork and a design that offers garden views from just about every room in the house.


Check out the seller's site for more images, which do it justice far more than my words. But in terms of specifics, the house offers four bedrooms, an entrance halls, living/dining room, kitchen, larder, utility/boot room, cloakroom, study, family room, office, music/play room and a single bathroom – but that layout is fluid enough to change, should you want more bedrooms.

A piece of British architectural history, Garden Ground can be yours for around £575,000.
