1960s Modernist home designed by famous local architect sells at auction
Wed 10 Aug 2022
A house designed by Lincolnshire modernist architect Neil Taylor sold for more than the guide price at the County Property Auction today.
The curious home in Willingham Road, Lea, Gainsborough, sold for £230,000 over the guide price of £200,000 at the livestream auction.
The house, extending to around 1,491 sqft and situated in an elevated plot, requires modernisation but is a special contemporary home designed and created by Mr Taylor in around 1963.
Mr Taylor, who was born in Gainsborough, was renowned for his Modernist architecture, designing the town’s former Guildhall which opened in 1966 but which was demolished in 2013.
It was considered at the time quite a feat to design a building which was so modern in an area with other buildings dating to the Georgian era.
The three-bedroom house which sold today is in a tree-lined plot of around 0.3 of an acre.
James Mulhall, Head of Property Auctions, Brown&Co JHWalter, said: “The property will benefit from a scheme of modernisation, but offers the opportunity to create a contemporary home with great character.”
