Frustratingly, we can’t find enough inside shots of this 1930s three-bedroom art deco property in Keston, near Bromley, Kent. But we’re flagging it up anyway, purely because it is an interesting house.
According to the agent, it was built in 1936 and has changed hands just three times since then. Judging by the exterior and gates, not a lot has changed and a lot has been maintained well. But with just one blurred shot of a living room and an image of part of the bathroom to go off, we really can’t say for sure what condition the inside is in.
The agent says the place has ‘undergone a comprehensive and complex programme of refurbishment to the interior and exterior in recent years, presenting any fortunate purchaser with a clean blank canvas yet has retained a number of unique and unusual features.’ We really don’t know what to make of that. A viewing, if you are interested, is the order of the day.
Before you go, you’ll probably want to know that it sits in half an acre of land, with its own private woodland to the rear and south facing views across unspoilt open countryside. That’s a conservation area too, so unlikely to change.
As for the accommodation, it comprises of a large open plan living room, with original solid wood room divider to the second reception room. You’ll also find a kitchen/breakfast room with walk-in pantry, plus a utility area and a cloakroom off the inner hall.
The first floor has three bedrooms, the smallest of which has a balcony to the front, along with stairs to the full size roof terrace and, we presume, a bathroom, although one isn’t specifically mentioned. We have mentioned the outside space already, but two detached garages to the front are also worth mentioning.
On the market for £675,000, it’s available with no chain.
