Structurally, this is still the art deco property so many of you fell in live with five years ago. That’s perhaps the biggest sigh of relief. Inside is perhaps a slightly different story.

Some rooms look unchanged, such as the large kitchen area and one of the bathrooms for example. It looks like the parquet flooring is still in place too in at least some of the rooms and of course, the roof terrace is as it should be.

It is, of course, still a substantial house, which is hardly surprising considering this was originally a doctor’s surgery as well as a house for the original owner, Dr Innes Pragnell. In fact, it continued that dual role into the 1950s.

A side entrance hallways leads to a boiler room a study (or bedroom five) and a ground floor bathroom.

More details on that layout and the outside space on the listing. If you are interested, the price has obviously jumped a little since last time out, but at offers over £350,000 this is still one of the cheaper properties we have featured.
