The week at WowHaus: Another selection of retro property you might have missed


It has been another bumper week for interesting house finds at WowHaus. Here is out pick of the week's retro properties.

1970s modernist methodist church in Mangotsfield, Bristol, Avon (pictured above)

Ever fancied living in a church? Perhaps not, but when you see a 1970s modernist church, it might be a very different case. You'll need to refit it as a house, but at £200,000, it might be a shrewd investment.

1960s Edward Schoolheifer-designed three-bedroom modernist property in Manygate Lane, Shepperton, Middlesex

Built by the Lyon Group in 1965 and now designated as a conservation area, this is manageable modernism built around a communal area. The kind of place you can just walk into too.

1960s Snap House five-bedroom property in Liss, Hampshire

It has been renovated to a very high standard, but the shell of this stylish place is still original, with the added bonus of a quiet country location.

1970s Hartman-Cox-designed modernist property in Potomac, Maryland, USA

Hopping over the Atlantic, we find this huge modernist gem, covering around 7,955 sq. ft. and maintained to a very high standard. A house you really could get lost in.

1930s Balnagarrow art deco property in Cramond Village, near Edinburgh, Midlothian

A game of two halves with this art deco gem.

The shape is still there (with a small addition), but the inside is a mix of original and updated. You could still rescue it back to its art deco finery though – especially with a change of windows.

Four-bedroom 1960s midcentury modern property in Thorpe on the Hill, Lincolnshire

An amazing place, dating back to the '60s and not changed much since.

Actually, that's probably not fair – the owners have obviously gone to great pains to keep this place in original condition, whilst keeping everything else in great order. Love that roof, love the huge open living space too.

1960s three-storey Eric Lyons-designed Span house on the Cator Estate, Blackheath, London SE3

A rare 1967 Eric Lyons-designed Type R Span House, in a rare condition too.

That's because this place is in original condition, needing some work, but very much a blank canvas to do as you please. Again, this is a manageable place, one you can add value to as well, we think.

1960s John Winter-designed grade II-listed modernist property in London N6

Described as '‘one of London’s most architecturally significant modernist houses' and for that reason, worthy or your attention.

It really is amazing. Built for the architect himself in the late 1960s, this modernist icon is on the market for the first time ever, still looking much the same all these years on. I don't know where to start – just check out the details and the images. Its a stunner.
