Something of a game of two halves here (if we’re talking in football terms). Part of this place has the wow factor, the rest of this 1980s A-frame property in Southminster, Essex looks like it needs to play catch up.
But it’s a striking build nonetheless. According to the agent, it was constructed in the early 1980s with an individual ‘A frame’ design, which is intended to take full advantage if of the estuary views.
That perhaps also accounts for the upstairs space having the impact, as it was (and is) the focal point of the house. A large open space with wood panelling to the wall and roof space, likely to feel even bigger with all that height and the feature window.
Outside of that, time seems to have taken its toll as little – or perhaps there’s only so much you can do with the remaining space? We don’t know, but we think an upgrade throughout could still make this place special.
As for layout, there are four bedrooms to the ground floor (two with direct access to the gardens), that 21ft. square living room with 14ft. vaulted ceiling plus a separate dining room and kitchen.
There is also off road parking and a double carport outside, space for a small boat (it’s that kind of location) and a good-sized garden. £395,000 is the guide price.
