Designed in 1958 by the architect and artist (and cousin of Barbara) Arthur Jackson Hepworth, Wick Hollow has hardly changed in 65 years. Full-height windows draw natural light into the open-plan living space, cleverly arranged with nooks for eating, studying and access to the tiered landscaped gardens through timber-framed glass doors.
Original mosaic parquet flooring leads around the main floor, stopping short of the renovated kitchen with its new built-in appliances. And an open-tread staircase climbs to the bedrooms, also flooded with natural light. Two south-facing bedrooms have views of Glastonbury Tor. In all, there are 1,500 square feet of living space.
The location enjoys the best of both worlds: access, by foot, to the town shops and open countryside with excellent bird-watching. And the Glastonbury Festival is less than 30 minutes by car.
Wick Hollow is currently on the market with The Modern House for £700,000.
