Bauhaus Property for Sale: Ilkley, West Yorkshire

03 Aug
August 3, 2012

This Bauhaus property for sale, located in a semi rural setting is an outstanding example of traditional Bauhaus architecture, an evolution of the famed Art Deco design of the 1920’s. Dating from the 1929 the property provides bright and spacious family accommodation retaining many period features and with all principal rooms enjoying a southerly aspect. The property incorporates a magnificent central reception hall, two very impressive main reception rooms and a large kitchen on the ground floor. On the first floor level there is a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and south facing balcony, four further bedrooms and a house bathroom. The property stands within generous and well screened south facing lawned grounds.

So what is the difference between Bauhaus and Art Deco? Not a huge amount as one inspired the other but the main consensus is that Bauhaus architects and designers held to a function over form mentality, “the less is more” philosophy. They tended to stay away from unnecessary decoration, whereas the Art Deco folks revered in decoration with many Art Deco buildings displaying purely decorative elements.

The property has an Asking Price Of £650,000 and further details can be found on the estate agent’s website (direct link to the property not provided so a search is required).
