70s house has stood up well

NOT all architect design houses from the early 1970s have stood the test of time well but one that has, according to selling agent Charles Matthews of Symonds & Sampson, is at Etheridge Farm, Okeford Fitzpaine, Dorset.

"Its one of those friendly houses – good ceiling heights, plenty of windows and a good layout," he says.

The 60-acre unit has a full range of livestock buildings currently used for bull beef and a further block of 35 acres arable land nearby. The guide for the main farm is £675,000 with £75,000 on the extra land. &#42
