Not just a significant post-war British design, this 1960s Trevor Dannatt-designed Laslett House in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire is in amazing original condition.

The house is sat in around two-thirds of an acre of land architect Trevor Dannatt for the Cambridge professor Peter Laslett in 1958. This is the first time that the house has been on the market, although in the meantime (2004), English Heritage listed it – perhaps as much to do with that untouched state as the distinctive midcentury modern design.


Accommodation includes a first-floor living room with large picture windows that overlook the gardens plus an open fireplace designed by Dannatt. Four bedrooms and a bathroom make up the rest of the first floor living space. The ground floor includes a fifth bedroom / second reception room, a WC, kitchen and dining room. There is also a garage on the ground floor, with gardens outside mainly laid to lawn and a short driveway at the front of the house.

Sold with plans by the original architect for an annexe that is sympathetic to the original design, it's on the market for around £1,400,000.
