This solid and stylish 1950s, builder's own home has been constructed in hand-crafted concrete blocks that were precisely laid 100 at a time.

The flexible floorplan provides an easy layout to modernise, yet as it has been meticulously maintained over the years one could live comfortably as is and just appreciate the rarity of something so well built and so well looked after.
