The agent calls it ‘one of the most important Modern Movement buildings in Britain’. You can make your own mind up about this 1930s Berthold Lubetkin-designed five-bedroom modernist property in London SE18.
It’s a mid-terrace property, part of a group of four on Genesta Road designed by Lubetkin in the early 1930s and all now grade II-listed. This one has just undergone complete refurbishment.
If you love plain, this is likely to appeal, as neutral is the name of the game here over the 1,350 sq. ft. of space. That space includes five bedrooms and a bathroom, a reception room and kitchen, a utility room and an integral garage. There is also off-street parking at the front and a long stepped garden at the rear, with ‘fine views’ over London to the north from the upper rooms.
The upgrade is said to be sympathetic and the images do echo that, with the likes of a sweeping spiral staircase, Crittall windows, white render and Lubetkin’s signature curved balcony all still present.
If you want to take this place on, the asking price is £399,000.
