You might have to use your imagination a little with this one, but this 1950s architect-designed single-storey property in Heathfield, East Sussex is certainly a house packed with potential.
Not enough detail on its past is offered, aside from the single-storey property being individually architect designed property in the ’50s and built by the ‘Lions Green’ building company. It’s a design largely unchanged over the decades.
It needs some work and some updating obviously, but that authenticity should mean a good canvas to work with. Grounds in excess of two acres should appeal too, as should that original English Rose kitchen, which is a sought after thing in the modern era.
As for space, a recessed entrance porch with adjoining sidescreen takes you into an entrance hall, leading onto the first bedroom with original fitted wardrobes and a ‘unique period feature’ of a concealed door allowing access to the wardrobe from both bedroom one and the family bathroom. Also present is the second bedroom with fitted furniture, a third bedroom with similar furniture and loft access, the original 1950s bathroom, separate WC, that period kitchen and breakfast room, a large split level L-shaped sitting and dining room with mirrored bar area, natural stone built fireplace, large panoramic double glazed window obvert the garden and the option to split both rooms if necessary.
Externally, the property is approached via a driveway, with an area of off-road parking, a detached double garage, large feature street lights, further outbuildings and those two acres of garden.
It’s on the market for £499,950.
