Interesting building. If you think so too, an apartment in the grade II-listed Kingfisher Court in East Molesey, Surrey has just come on the market.

The building dates back to the 1930s and was designed by Guy Morgan. Perhaps its most notable feature is the rooftop canopy, which mimics the deck of a larger cruise ship. Still striking today too.

The building consists of 64 flats, all of which were initially rented out. Private sales only started in the 1970s, with some places still on long-term rental deals. This one, obviously, is on the market.

Some art deco apartments struggle to adapt to the 21st century in terms of space and layout. It doesn’t seem the case with this one.

Ok, that has obviously been helped along by what looks like a considerable renovation inside. But you do get over 800 sq. ft. of accommodation within and some wonderful large windows to boost the light.

Admittedly, period features are thin on the ground in this particular apartment, but it is very well finished. If you fancy living here, the price is £499,950.
