A distinctly 60s house that still has a touch of the cutting edge about it – this three-bedroomed house on Manygate Lane, Shepperton, TW17.

Designed by the Swiss architect Edward Schoolheifer for the Lyon Group in 1964, it has a spacious and light open-plan living area downstairs, arranged around a central 'pod' that features a kitchen, cloakroom and staircase. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and a bathroom.


The house itself has been 'sympathetically maintained', with plenty of original features still intact (including pine panelling, extensive glazing and aluminium window frames) but with sensible updating, like a new kitchen, bathroom and boiler. There's also some a front and rear garden, a nearby garage (with additional off-street parking) and a landscaped communal square away from the road.

Manygate Lane is located five minutes’ walk from Shepperton train station, which runs direct services to London Waterloo. Price? Offers around £385,000. There's a viewing day on Saturday 4th September.
