There’s no shortage of architecturally significant homes for sale in Surrey, England, and this latest example is no exception. On the market for the first time in 50 years, this groovy ’60s time capsule sits elevated above Guildford—just 27 miles southwest of London—and frames panoramic views of the town and city skyline beyond.
With 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, multiple common areas, and generous outdoor space, the well-maintained home offers plenty of room for relaxation and entertaining in a setting that recalls the comforts of a bygone era.
In the main open-plan living room, carpeted floors and a tongue-and-groove ceiling combine with large rear-facing windows that frame those aforementioned views, as well as the multi-level garden and pool terrace below. A dining area with glazing on 3 sides is located off this space, then a period eat-in kitchen clad in brick, tile, and panelling follows.
Bedrooms are equally charming, with pink and yellow accent walls, carpeting, and those large windows. Although the bathrooms appear to have been updated more recently than not, the rest of the house could certainly use a refresh. But those midcentury bones are strong and would hold up against a sympathetic overhaul. Check out that fairy-like outbuilding, too. The property is offered at £899,950, or about $ 1.25 million.
