When it comes to art deco / modern movement properties of this era, it’s usually opposite ends of the spectrum. Either a complete makeover or an attempt to recreate the era. This is definitely the former.

The look is still there, but this house has been renovated completely, which will appeal to some, but perhaps not to be purists out there.

But if you like the idea of pretty much everything being done to a house, right down to new electrics, a new boiler, new windows and even a reinforced terrace space, not to mention re-rendering and painting, then this could be the house for you.

Of course, you also get the benefit of living in what the agent calls ‘the largest grouping of Modern Movement houses anywhere in the UK’, which should mean a few like-minded souls out and about.

As for the space, the main entrance takes you into a large reception area, then onto the living room and study at the front of the house, with windows taking up the length of the room.

Also on this ground floor is the kitchen / dining room, which also accesses the lawned garden, a utility room and separate shower room. Note that the former integral garage at the side of the house has been converted to create a larger kitchen and dining space.

All of that a short walk from the beach, which should be pleasant on a day like today.
