Photography: Hamilton Stiller

Postwar British architect Clive Plumb designed this unusual pavilion-like Herefordshire home in 1973, and it’s barely been touched since.

From the olive green bathroom suite and kitchen cabinetry to the groovy floral tiling, the Ross-on-Wye house needs quite a bit of work to bring it into the 21st century but on the flip side; it means Plumb’s original vision of a Japanese pavilion home in the British countryside is pretty much intact.

Most of White Keys’ living spaces are laid across the ground floor, which opens onto around a half-acre of gardens (just inside a conservation area). Sloping glass is used in the living room to bring the outdoors in, giving the house a lantern-like feel, and there are four bedrooms and a games room in its floor plan.

Hamilton Stiller is listing the property for £550,000 and is marketing the renovation challenge at those seeking ‘multi-generational living’ in an unusual building. Ross-on-Wye is a pretty market town, near the border with Wales, with many small local stores, galleries, cafes and hotels. Monmouth is 10 miles away, and Bristol is around 40 miles.
