You want quirky? We have quirky. Thanks to @stefiorazi for spotting The Deck House, which is 1960s harbour-side property in Emsworth, Hampshire.
Looking largely untouched since the mid-1960s (when it was built), it is described as being ideal for something seeking ‘a prime marine location’ with access to the nearby yachting facilities. If you love midcentury, even better.
It’s one of several homes adjoining the natural wildlife pond forming part of the Emsworth yacht harbour development, each one built on pillared stilts catering for both car and boat storage facilities underneath and with a dual aspect sun balcony.
The interior, as we hinted at above, is largely unchanged. You suspect someone will rip this out and start again, but it would be easy to work with this interior to mix modern home comforts with its distinctive period charm. The floors and ceilings are well worth preserving.
As for space, enter via the lower ground floor entrance hall, which has access to a store/utility room with fitted shelving, along with a staircase to the first floor, which has a landing area, sitting room / kitchen overlooking the communal green, a balcony overlooking the grounds, two bedrooms with built-in storage and a shower room.
Outside, as we mentioned, is the communal areas plus the parking space for up to three vehicles, an outside water source and an outside light. £250,000 is the asking price.
