Property of the week: a 1960s Foggo & Thomas home in London

With cocooning timber interiors

Hidden behind an inconspicuous brick wall in London’s Blackheath is a surprising midcentury home with timber-lined interiors.

The three-bedroom Langton Way property was built to a design by architects Peter Foggo and David Thomas in the early 1960s. Its rooms are packed with warm wooden surfaces, including maple floors, and pine ceilings. Floating cedar partitions informally divide its open-play layout while floor-to-ceiling glass bookends the main living spaces, creating sight-lines to its leafy garden.

Amplifying this cosy cocoon-like feeling is a woodburning stove and white-washed brick walls, while a huge skylight channels light into the living room.

The modernist London property is on the market via The Modern House for £1.495m and has undergone some modernisation. But much of its cabinetry and fixtures are original and all updates are in keeping with the architect’s original design.

Eagle-eyed thriller fans might also recognise the dwelling from the 2016 adaptation of John Le Carre’s, Our Kind of Traitor, where it starred as the home of Damian Lewis’ M16 spy character, Hector.
