If you are a fan of the period, this four-bedroom 1930s art deco property in Southgate, London N14 should be right up your street.
A lovely example and according to the agent, a house that has been used in both ITV and BBC TV productions in the past. It’s also a nice mix of the old and the new – some lovely period features are still here, but overall, this is very much a modern family home.
As for those features, the original exterior obviously, along with the flat roof, the staircase, the Crittall windows and some nice bathroom fittings too. It’s not a period piece as such, but someone has made an effort to keep a good element of originality within the house. That has to be applauded.
But this place is looking for a family, not a curator and with that in mind, there’s plenty of living space too. Enter the glazed door with ironwork, which leads to the hallway and its Red Oak wood flooring and stairs with art deco style balustrade, radiator and doors to the ground floor cloakroom with original half height tiling and patterned glass window.
Also on the ground is a through lounge with curved bay window, sliding patio doors to the rear garden, wood flooring and door to the study, which in turn leads to the kitchen with all the usual modern fittings and appliances.
The first floor landing has a curved window and access to the roof terrace, as well as access to bedroom one with its curved window, bedroom two overlooking the rear garden, a dual-aspect bedroom three and a fourth bedroom, which again overlooks the back garden.
The family bathroom on this floor has the original ‘Vitrolite’ tiled surround bath with deco style mixer tap and shower over, tiled walls, tiled flooring, original style heated towel radiator and tiled walls. There is also a separate WC.
Outside, you’ll find a walled garden with driveway and path to front door, a rear garden with paved patio area plus steps to a mature garden, which is laid to lawn with a selection of plant and shrub borders. An integrated garage has an up and over door.
Fancy it? The house is on the market for offers in excess of £670,000. More images and details on the agent’s site.
