It has been updated in places, but there is still much to admire about this 1960s modernist property in Haywards Heath, West Sussex, not least its wonderful fireplace, beams, exposed brick and open-plan living space. Retro living with all the modern-day essentials.
Built back in 1963, this L R Barlow-designed five-bedroomed house in Haywards Heath, Sussex is a wonderful midcentury modern property that still maintains much of its original character.
Designed for the architect's own family, the house uses glass heavily fir the front and back elevations, so we're talking light throughout. There's also a largely unspoilt exterior and an interior that generally sticks to the original look – the windows, doors and flooring all look original, as does the staircase and some of the light fittings.
