How does the idea of a midcentury property with butterfly roof for £179k grab you? Well this midcentury-style property in Congleton, Cheshire is up for auction with that guide price.
Always amazing to see places like this still around. By that, we mean largely-untouched architectural gems from the past, like this 1970s Granville Gough-designed four-bedroom Polygons house in Lymm, Cheshire.
Last week on our WowHaus site, we spotted a modernist property in Neston in Cheshire, the work of noted architect J Roy Parker. After a bit of digging about, we found that he was also responsible for a mini estate in the same area, which includes this 1960s J Roy Parker-designed four-bedroom house in Parkgate, Cheshire.
A great house from the outside, this five-bedroomed art deco house in Willaston, Wirral, Cheshire doesn't quite have the same wow factor inside. Although it does offer enough of a 'blank canvas' to put the period back in
Described as ‘architecturally significant’, the house was designed back in 1935 by local architect Hubert Thomas and can be found in the Cheshire volume of ‘Buildings of Britain’ by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner. So we're talking a house with some pedigree.
It might not look like much from the outside, but we love the inside of this Michael Sassoon-designed midcentury-style house in Cheadle, Cheshire. Mainly because it's hardly been touched since the day it was built.
We presume that's in the 1960s, it's not entirely clear. But we do know that this three-bedroom house was designed by renowned residential architect Michael Sassoon, one of a number he designed around the area. However, most have been severely updated and look little like an original these days. That's not the case here.
Contrary to popular opinion, it's not entirely 'grim up north'. Indeed, there's plenty of cash floating around if you happen to be in Cheshire – and you'll need a lot of it to buy this 1970s Frazer Crane-designed modernist house in Weston Road, Wilmslow, Cheshire.
If the name Frazer Crane means anything to you, it's perhaps because he was the man who designed George Best's modernist home in the 70s. Indeed, he was one of the few architects working to that style in the north of England during that period.
