It dates back to 1963 and sits in Morden Road Mews on the private Cator Estate, said to be a ‘semi-rural’ location. So far, so good – and we have featured a number of these Span houses before. But as well as offering some modernist design in suburbia, this one gives you free reign to to bring it back to its former glory. ‘Hardly been touched since its construction’, says the agent.

That obviously means a massively-overgrown garden, but it also means many of the original units and storage, as well as the original floorplan, flooring, underfloor heating and staircase for example. Yes, updating is needed, but this is a superb blank canvas that should be easy to turn into a modern-day, 60s-inspired home.

In terms of the space on offer, you get a ground floor that’s entirely open-plan with the original kitchen area to the centre and full width picture windows to both ends of the room. A door at the rear opens directly onto the garden. Upstairs there are three ‘good sized’ bedrooms and a bathroom with separate WC. A high pitched roof to the front elevation creates two useful storage areas with natural light. There’s also a secluded rear garden which leads directly into the garage at the back.
