That’s the key point here, as the phrase ‘if new owner chooses to keep it’ hints at perhaps value in replacing this place with a new structure. But the agent also points out that the home ‘is a fixer’ and ‘is an amazing find’, so it’s far from a lost cause.

The house dates back to 1955 and looking at it, you get the feeling that it hasn’t been updated much since. There’s a hint of the 1960s about some of the decor, but certainly little has changed in the recent past. The house certainly doesn’t look to have changed physically, with the layout, extensive glazing, stone fireplaces and pool all looking very much of the era.
