It doesn't look all that exciting from the outside, but this 1950s architect-designed house in Towcester, Northamptonshire has lots of period charm, especially if you love a midcentury look.

As we said, it looks modern from the outside, but it is generally true to the original 1954 design, especially inside, as you can see from the snaps. But being on a 'sought after' road and in plenty of land, you do worry that the period exterior might not last for long.


In terms of layout, the house offers access via an entrance porch, which leads to an entrance hall with herringbone wood block flooring and in turn leads to the dining room, sitting room and a kitchen/breakfast room with walk-in pantry. There’s also a cloakroom on the ground floor.

Head upstairs and you’ll find a first floor landing with storage, along with a master bedroom with fitted furniture and en-suite, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside, you’ll find a large block brick driveway, a 120ft wide format garden, a garage and workshop, a large greenhouse and a league lawned rear garden.

Fancy it? £495,000 is the price.
