But let’s start at the beginning. This is a stylish detached art deco property and judging from the images, one of a number on the same street. It looks like a 1930s property from the outside, but the inside shows something very different.

In fact, inside this place you only get a hint of this being a period build. There are doors that look original and the overall shape and the windows evoke the era. But essentially this is a modern family home. In 2013, you really wouldn’t expect any different.

But it is still a spacious deco-style property and the decor is just that. You can put your own stamp on this if you want more ‘period’ in it’. Perhaps the most contentious thing for a lover of the era is at the back. Yes, there’s a large conservatory there which obviously adds to the space, but might be an issue if authenticity is what you are about.

As for that overall space, the ground floor open with an enclosed porch, leading to a hallway with oak flooring and in turn leading a shower room, a living room, a connected double glazed conservatory and a kitchen/breakfast room.
