Two houses up for sale on the same street, but this one does come across better in the photos, which just might get you down to the open day on 2nd August 2014. But be warned, these kind of properties aren’t easy to get a mortgage on.

Why? Well, that’s because the house is built with the Segal Method, a way of building that was pioneered by Swiss architect Walter Segal using a timber frame. With that in mind, check with the lender before you set your heart on this.

The house has been extensively (and stylishly) refurbished by designer Tanya Stanley, making the most of the large open-plan living room, kitchen and dining area , now featuring bi-fold doors that open along the entire width of the glazed wall for great views across London. The rest of the house is laid out with three double bedrooms, a bathroom and a teak-lined wet room. You’ll also find extensive storage underneath the house, plus a small plant room with the boiler and two water tanks.

The garden surrounds the property, with a designated off-street parking space also allocated. If you want more space, planning permission has recently been applied for by the owners to boost the bedroom space and add a roof terrace. Check that out at the open day.

The asking price is £499,950.

    I phones the agents a couple of days ago – there were already 50 people lined up for the viewing day!

    Completely failed to clock the previous property; what a difference photos make indeed. May be a fixer-upper.
