This mid-1970s ranch-style house, with more than a nod to the retro, is set in 26 acres with panoramic views of the South Downs in Hampshire.
Exposed brick, modern wooden beams, an open fireplace, designer furniture in warm leather and plush soft furnishings, such as the deep-pile carpet, throw and cushions, amalgamate to produce a modern retro vibe that oozes cosy living.
A highly sociable space, this corner of the open-plan living area comprises a dining table and chairs as well as breakfast bar and stools. The muted colours and warm wood lend a peaceful atmosphere, while the sleek shapes and clean lines bring modernism to the retro look.
The stunning, solid-mahogany, 1970s Poggenpohl kitchen is a design classic, complete with vintage floral green tiles for a blast from the past. The sense of scale here is emphasised by the lines running along the kitchen cabinets.
The bathroom resembles the set of Boogie Nights – tan tiles, shag-pile carpet that reaches up to the edge of the tub, plus gold swan taps. A vanity console shaped like a grand piano tops off the kitsch look.
