The house that Jack built - a creation of innovation!
21st of February 2011
Modernist house for sale
Art Deco House, St. Mary's Lane, Louth, Lincolnshire
Guide price £499,999

Modernistic House In Louth
The Art Deco House is located in the charming Georgian town of Louth and was the worthy winner of a Daily Mail Ideal Home competition, entitled ‘The House That Jack Built’. It is a Modernist three storey dwelling with panoramic views of the town and is set in 0.55 acres of sympathetically landscaped grounds.

Although the name "Modernist" suggests that this is a brand new building, it was actually designed by architect, Thomas Dalgleish McLean in 1931 - Modernism is a form of architecture which suggests a certain style which first appeared in the early twentieth century. The principles behind the design include; simplification of form, emphasis of horizontal and vertical lines and elimination of "unnecessary detail".

This immaculately presented four bedroom house offers large reception rooms and detached home office and garaging (a detached air raid shelter which comprises of two rooms).

Externally, this property could be the perfect setting for any Hercule Poirot murder mystery, and inside the owners have created a stunning 21st century version of Modernism. This simple design and concept have resulted in a truly spectacular and unique house which continues to turn heads eighty years after its inception.
