David and Scott of Berkshire-based creative consultancy Bungalow Industries have called this amazing 1960s bungalow home (and studio) for four years, but now they’re selling up. They’ve created a gorgeous little microsite and brochure to show off the home and its fascinating history, and they kindly let me share the photos here, too.

The property is a Renway Type 60A bungalow, designed by architect Athelstan Whaley. Inspired by 1950s Californian living, Whaley built an idyllic modernist estate surrounded by woodland, designed to appeal to the glamorous air crew set from nearby airports. To make it even more special, the 1966 film Fahrenheit 451 was filmed on location here.

The interior decor has been sensitively modernised by David and Scott over the past 4 years, with a nod to the 60s in the walnut-panelled bathroom, choice pieces of iconic furniture, and beautiful parquet floors.

The houses were designed to flow seamlessly into the outside space, so the garden is naturally stunningly landscaped too.

Just check out these before-and-afters to see how David and Scott really breathed life back into this house! They’ve now decided to move on and apply their expertise and love to another renovation project.

I love it. I want it. £515,000 seems like a bargain! Be sure to check out The Bungalow’s site and brochure for a good look around.

    I just discovered your lovely blog. I'm just new into blogging this year & have just finished off my own daily blog on fashion, food, travel & interior design.
    I had a lot of fun putting it together maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute.
