It's 'use your imagination' time here, because this Mary Medd-designed Sewell's Orchard house in Tewin, Hertfordshire has a touch of the 'granny' about it inside, despite its modernist roots.

Mary Medd worked with prominent modern movement architect Erno Goldfinger. From 1934 – 1936, with this house dating to the earlier of those years. She originally designed the house, one of a set of three, for her parents, with inspiration taken from the architect's visit to the Stockholm Exhibition of 1930. It's also grade II-listed due to its architectural importance and is available to buy for the first time in 31 years.
