Around two and a half years ago, we featured another art deco property in this area which was pretty much full renovated. Not so this 1930s art deco property in Middleton On Sea, West Sussex.
Yet the guide price is much higher than that last property. That’s perhaps down to the rising market, but maybe due to the plot which is sizeable and with direct access to the beach. Uninterrupted sea views too, of course.
In terms of the house, this certainly isn’t a time capsule. At least, not the 1930s. The listing adds that a self-contained annexe was built 11 years ago. But looking at the images, this house really does need some serious work rot bring it back to its best. Time has not been kind.
The original windows are long gone (but can be replaced with something period if you have the budget) and the interior is more of a 1970s affair than the 1930s. Although, as we often say, this place might have original features if you strip out some of the later decades. Nothing certain though.
But on the plus side, there is plenty of space inside, which is ready and waiting for the right makeover. You get the feeling it might need reconfiguring, but perhaps check that out at a viewing.
On the ground floor of the ‘main residence’ is a sitting room with a sun room, both with sea views. There is also a kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom with WC and further WC.
On the first floor is a double bedroom with balcony for more of those sea views plus a further bathroom / WC. As we mentioned, a self-contained annexe too, with an entrance hall, kitchen, cloakroom, sitting room and double bedroom with access to both balconies. There is also an en-suite facility off this bedroom.
Outside is a driveway to the front of the house, with a substantial lawned area to the rear and that access to the beach.
Not cheap with a guide of £875,000, especially if you plan to completely renovate the place. But an interesting and desirable property nonetheless.
