Yes, you read that right – the words ‘new-build’ and ‘art deco’ in the same sentence. If that unlikely mixed appeals to you, read on to find out about this five-bedroom new-build art deco-style house in Saltdean, East Sussex.
It’s an interesting proposition. The ‘look’, but without the original character. Which also means without the problems that renovating and maintaining a period house can bring. It’s not for everyone, but it’s likely to be for someone.
To be fair, the house, one of two being built, doesn’t try to pretend it’s an old house. A look at the windows and doors tells you that. But the shape is deco-inspired and quite refreshing for a newly-constructed house.
In terms of images, that newly-built status is significant. We suspect that the mix of distant shots and artist’s impressions indicates the house is yet to be finished. Which, of course, means you might be able to put your own stamp on the finishes.
For your living space, it looks like an open plan house with an eye on entertaining, as the living area is open to the kitchen, with both areas opening out onto the garden. The main bedrooms also come with views towards the coast, the master bedroom also with a balcony.
Aside from that, the full breakdown is an entrance hall, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a WC, a study (possibly an extra bedroom), lounge area and kitchen/dining area on the ground floor, with the master bedroom and its en-suite found on the first floor. Outside, there’s a patio, terrace, rear garden and off-road parking. The mock-ups also show solar panels, which should help with the utility bills.
Offers of around £585,000 to secure the place.
