We actually featured one of these in renovated condition last year, but this 1960s Norman Starrett-designed townhouse in Chislehurst, Kent is very much as it was originally. In fact, it looks hardly touched.

For sale: 1960s-designed Camden Pines house in Chislehurst, Kent
Not the most instantly eye-catching house we've ever featured, but this 1960s-designed Camden Pines house in Chislehurst, Kent has the potential to be a real modernist gem.
A large 5-bedroom house in what's described as 'a quiet, secluded location', it was designed in 1968 by the architect Roy Lancaster with a number of features common from that particulalr era, including a large, light living room with floor to ceiling glazing and 'free-flowing' internal spaces. Downside? Well, externally it isn't much of a looker and the internal decor is very 'mumsy', so you'll have to use your imagination about what it could look like with a bit of effort.
For sale: 1960s-designed Strarretts house in Chislehurst, Kent
We recently featured one Norman Starrett house in Chislehurst in Kent, but now another has gone on sale – this 1960s-designed Strarretts house in Chislehurst, Kent.
Yes, the same town and the same architect, but this 5/6-bedroom house is significantly more expensive than the last one. Sat on a large, sloping plot, the house was designed back in 1962 as a ‘luxury’ house and has been ‘sympathetically maintained’ by its current owner, which is one way of saying that it’s architecturally sound on the outside, but accommodates the modern era inside with an updated layout. In particular, the garage has been turned into a studio space.
For sale: 1960s-designed house in Greatwood, Chislehurst, Kent
Designed by Norman Starrett back in 1962, this large townhouse in Greatwood, Chislehurst, Kent is still every bit the 1960s dream.
Greatwood is a small development of 19 houses, all designed by Starrett in what is called the 'H2 Design' and arranged in small groups of staggered terraces for privacy. The three-storey houses still scream the era and offer open plan living in a way modern homes can't and don't.
