Madin Mansion for £1.5mil
A masterpiece from the Central Library legend
Being as we've all been sat on sofas for the last year there's a good chance one of us dropped £1.5million down the back of it. Have a shufty because a dream John Madin mansion in Lapworth has just gone on the market and the asking price is just that. Madin, of course, was most famous for being an American Football coach and the face of EA Sports' most successful gaming franchise. Wait. No. That's not right at all, that's John Madden. John Madin was the Moseleyite architect famed for The Central Library, Birmingham Conservatoire, Pebble Mill and a host of other gone, partially gone or listed Brum build jobs. Five bedrooms and three bathrooms, Johnboy built Juniper Hill between 1957 and 1959, set within 2.75 acres of land which, presumably, is a lot but I don't have a point or reference. This grade II listed Modernist masterpiece even comes with the original designs from the man himself. Shame leafy Lapworth is a bit dodgy otherwise I'd put an offer in. And yes, it does look like the house from Ozark. More
