We love Span, a company that decided to build houses for the masses from the 1960s onwards, but in a style more akin to architecturally-designed properties. The best of both worlds. Not just houses either – you can pick up this Span two-bedroomed flat in Hallgate, Blackheath Park, Blackheath, London SE3.
It’s a very clean and cool design, around 40 years after it was built, one of 26 flats, surrounded by communal grounds in Blackheath, said to be ‘on one of the best streets’ in the area. Indeed, the estate itself is actually listed. Not bad for housing for the masses.
A modernist property from the outside, you get something more familiar inside, with two bedrooms, a generous living room, kitchen, bathroom and bags of storage – built-in cupboards in both bedrooms, storage cupboards in the hallway and a communal store room on the ground floor for bikes, prams etc for the six flats to share.
Available chain free, offers are invited for around £290,000.
