A stunning piece of small-scale 1960s architecture is currently for sale – this Laurie Abbott-designed house in Frimley, Surrey.
Built in 1966 as part of a small development of similar properties, it was designed by Abbott, who until his recently was a senior director at the Richard Rogers Partnership, instrumental in the creation of the Pompidou Centre and Lloyd's of London. Some pedigree for a house designer.
Sadly, the stunning exterior doesn't quite match up on the inside, the current owners having 'sympathetically maintained and updated' the house, but judging by the internal shots, a lot of that 60s character seems to be missing. Sure you'll be able to put it back easily enough though.
In terms of specifics, there's a reception and utility on the ground floor, a kitchen and breakfast room plus bathroom on the first, then three bedrooms on the second floor. Outside is a courtyard, communal gardens and a single garage. Price? A reasonable-sounding £265,000. Well, reasonable in terms of Surrey house prices anyway.
