Modern de­signs gain ap­proval

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

MODERN ar­chi­tec­ture has risen through the ranks of the pub­lic’s favourite home de­sign, with one in four now pre­fer­ring a prop­erty to have a con­tem­po­rary look over more clas­sic styles, says Smart­newhomes.

Re­search by the prop­erty por­tal found that Vic­to­rian ar­chi­tec­ture was the most pop­u­lar (25.6 per cent) among re­spon­dents who were asked to vote for their favourite from a list of homes from dif­fer­ent eras. This was fol­lowed by modern (24.6 per cent) and Ge­or­gian (16.5 per cent).

How­ever houses from the 1930s – which make up a sig­nif­i­cant pro­por­tion of the UK’S sub­ur­ban hous­ing stock – were the least pre­ferred with only 3.3 per cent of the votes.
