A new agent and a new price for this Charles Riddy-designed Foxfield art deco property in Quinton, Northamptonshire, which was originally marketed some months back elsewhere.
Outside, this place looks immaculate. But the ‘elephant in the room’ here is (as ever) the modernisation of the property inside. The agent describes upgrade of this 1934 Charles Riddy design as ‘sympathetic’ and to be be fair, we have seen far more radical makeovers of art deco properties. The seller here has (for example) used double glazed Crittall windows to replace the originals, which is nice to see, as well as building three garages in line with the original house design.
But this is an old house and ultimately a home, contemporary work has been done. Some, such as rewiring. a new heating system and a replacement roof probably very welcome too. But other finishes are perhaps down to personal taste.
Space shouldn’t be an issue here, with the house offering an entrance hall with cloakroom, a ‘spacious’ dining hall, a 26ft. drawing room. a modern kitchen and breakfast area, a rear hall with utility, a study and a family room. Head upstairs and you’ll find a main bedroom suite with dressing room and en-suite, a guest bedroom with bathroom, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Outside space includes those three garages and around 1.2 acres of well-maintained land.
As we said, it has been up before and is now up with a new agent at a reduced price of £825,000.
