I can only assume that this is a sought after postcode having glanced at the price of this 1960s Harley Sherlock-designed modernist townhouse in London N6.
Not that there’s anything wrong with the house. Far from it. It’s an interesting example of 1960s modernism that’s generally in its original condition. All good as far as we are concerned. But we just imagined it being a little cheaper.
Anyway, we’ll come back to that later. For now, let’s focus on the house, which was built in 1962 and is part of the Southwood House Estate, described as a triangle of residences designed by the architect Harley Sherlock of the firm Andrews, Emerson, Sherlock & Keable. This one has been in the same family since 1974, which perhaps accounts for the surviving originality, including the staircase and parquet flooring. Although there has been some modernisation over the years, most notably with the kitchen and an open-plan dining area, which was originally the garage. There is still off-street parking though, you’ll be pleased to know.
As for space overall, on the ground floor there is an entrance hall, which leads to that open-plan dining room, with a kitchen to the other side of the hallway, plus a reception room at the back, which leads to the garden. The first floor has two double bedrooms, two single bedrooms and a bathroom. Outside there is that parking space, a front garden, along with rear and communal gardens.
It looks like a lovely place to be. The big downside being the price. You’ll need around £1,195,000 to secure this.
