It’s a stunning renovation of a 1934 build, designed by Blenkinsopp and Scratchard for a Dr Innes Pragnell and going by the name of Chatelaine. It was used as both a home and a surgery until the 1950s.

Subsequent owners have obviously been kind to it, with the most recent owner taking advantage of the period features, including the terrazzo flooring, Japanese oak parquet flooring and sunken black bath with mosaic tiling, as well as dressing the place with some 1930s charm. But this isn’t just a period piece – a glimpse at the kitchen shows this is very much the modern family home too.

In terms of the layout, the ground floor includes a living/dining room, a kitchen and a study (possibly for used as a 5th bedroom), while the upper floor includes a master bedroom with an attached dressing room and three further double bedrooms. There’s a second floor too, which is essentially the sun room that opens out onto a large roof terrace of about 100 square metre.

I’ll be honest, I know nothing about the area, beyond where it is geographically, but I’m guessing property is pretty reasonably-priced in the town in light of the asking price here – £249,000. Many more images on the site.
