That’s quite a title, but it says pretty much all you need to know. This is a grade II-listed Charles Evelyn Simmons-designed six-bedroom art deco house in Downage, London NW4 – and it’s up for sale now.
According to the agent’s details (which aren’t exactly in depth), the property was designed by Charles Evelyn Simmons and subsequently built over 1934 and 1935, the exterior still screaming the art deco era (you can see a better image of that exterior here). This is some house, that’s for sure.
But the interior? Well, this grade II-listed house is more modern family home than period relic, but that’s ‘blank canvas’ is, for us, more appealing than over-stylised modern-day art deco, which you often find in these places. In short, you can put the period back if you want to.
But there are a lot of rooms to ‘period up’, should you have the time, inclination and money. We’re talking an entrance/hallway, cloakroom, lounge, dining room, a kitchen/breakfast room, a utility room, six bedrooms, a bathroom, shower room, games room and a pool room.
Nip outside and you’ll also find front and rear gardens, as well as a garage. Looks like the odd balcony and of course, a flat roof too. That’s a lot of house, but sadly, for a lot of money. In this case, you’ll be looking at something around £1,300,000 if you want to own this place.
