Peek inside a midcentury modern home in the Yorkshire countryside

It’s far from your usual country cottage

Think of Yorkshire and images of rolling hills and English country cottages spring to mind. But this midcentury Scriven home fuses rustic and modernist touches.

Architect Bill Bradshaw designed the five-bedroom midcentury property in 1967 for his own family and was inspired by the Case Study Houses of California. It features a low slung volume set with 42 glass panes which peek onto its leafy garden setting while flooding interiors with light.

The Yorkshire property – on the market via The Modern House for £825,000 – has evolved over the decades. It was first extended in the 1970s and then in 1988 with an architect-designed pitched volume on the first floor that is clad in rustic timber.

But it retains a cache of Bradshaw’s original design features, including pine ceilings and walls, and exposed beams.
