At first glance, perhaps from the road, this house might not sell itself. But once you see in this 1960s Norman Plastow-designed midcentury property in London SW20, you (like us) might well be hooked.
We are still torn as to whether this is a very well maintained example of the architect’s work or a very clever renovation. Some of the decorative touches suggest the former, but we wouldn’t rule either out. It doesn’t really matter though. If you want an authentic 1960s look, this is worth checking out.
A lovely design too, especially when you get beyond the front door to take in some of the features on offer here.
From looking at the photos, you have probably noted the windows, the ceilings, the open staircase, the flooring and the wood panelled walls. But what you might not appreciate is what the agent describes as ‘a generous, light-filled living area featuring a soaring cathedral ceiling’. Yes, there’s a double height ceiling here, which is really unexpected, which is also open plan to other rooms. The dining room for example is ‘screened’ from the main drawing room.
A good amount of space too, which includes that living room, drawing room and a kitchen on the ground floor, as well as a guest WC, cloakroom and porch. Head up the floating staircase and you’ll see three bedrooms (one en-suite), a family bathroom and some built-in storage.
Head outside (or look through one of the large windows) and you’ll see a 59ft level garden with summerhouse with power supply (so potential home office there). There is also a front driveway and integral garage for the house too.
A sixties dream, this place is up with a guide price of £1,250,000.
