Do you think the previous owner of this Kent house had a thing for wood? Located in Sandgate, a little village on the South-East coast of England, a short walk from a pebble beach, this 1962 project by John Floydd is the ultimate in mid-century architecture and heavy-themed, full-on ’60s decor. Entering the elevated home through a carport, the 5 bedroom build retains much of its original features. Wood cladding throughout, it’s not exactly light-flooded but it is undeniably full of character – that character being someone who enjoys roll-necks and the feel of a leather sofa/shagpile carpet combo. With an extension allowing for sea views and an open plan layout, imagine all the jazz and seagull spotting parties you could have in this incredible pad. Find out more at The Modern House.
