Not just any old house, the 1960s modernism of Otter Creek in Calenick, Truro, Cornwall actually won an award for its design 'back in the day'.
Sat in a small village near Truro, the Otter Creek was designed and built in 1963 by 'renowned local architect' Giles Blomfield of John Crowther & Associates. It was seem as ahead of its time and won an award for being just that, specifically the RIBA bronze medal in 1965. It still has the look of a contemporary place now, despite being almost 50 years old.

Originally built in the 1920s as a single-story property, the house was enlarged over two floors and to four bedrooms by the current owners. Not that you would notice unless you were familiar with the original – the ground floor keeps much of the architectural detail, while the upper floor has been designed to reflect the original design.
