Sorry about the lack of background on this one, we just don’t know who is behind this 1960s architect-designed modernist property in Clapham Park, London SW2.
If you know, please do let us know. For now, we’ll simply go for it being an individually architect-designed property, one that certainly looks at odds with the other houses around it. That’s a positive, by the way.
It is a house very much of its era, both inside and out. Part of that is down to very little change over the decades. Yes, some of the fittings and fixtures are contemporary, but the fabric of the house remains as you would have found it 50 or so years ago.
The outside is quite stark, but the inside is anything but. Bright and open, with angled wood panelled ceilings, tiled floors and exposed brick. Some wonderful built-in cabinets and storage too, no doubt still there because the yare both useful and well-built. They looks pretty dashing too.
The highlight of the house is the top floor 26ft reception room for sure, but there’s more to this place than a single room. There are three floors of living space here in total – and that’s before you get to the three-tier garden. Oh yes, there’s also a roof terrace too, which is both unusual and very cool.
Outside of that you’ll find five bedrooms in total, with two bedrooms having their own en-suite. A lovely office space is also present, which (like at least one of the bedrooms) opens onto an outside balcony. Obviously that might make working on a sunny day quite a challenge!
We mentioned the garden, but also worth pointing out odd the presence of garage and gated off-street parking, which is always a bonus.
£1,300,000 is the asking price if this appeals.
