The agent doesn’t mention it, but we are pretty sure this is a 1960s Roy Lancaster-designed modernist property in Chislehurst, Kent. Thanks to Kirsten for flagging it up.

We think this is the partner to another house we featured last year, one of two properties built together  and designed by Lancaster in the late 1960s.

The two houses were also designed to fit in with the nearby Norman Starrett-designed Greatwood properties. If you want to know more about those, see here.

Anyway, enough of other houses, let’s focus on this one, which doesn’t look to have changed a great deal since construction.

I’m basing that on things like the original Guzzini light fittings (highly desirable these days) and what looks like an original kitchen and bathroom space.

Of course, the real star of the show is that huge window over a stairway that’s pretty much the 1960s in itself. Panel ceiling, exposed brick, period chandelier and an open-tread staircase.

Yes, overall it might need some updating and general sharpening up, but this is still a great opportunity for someone looking for a house of this era.

As for space, the house is arranged over two floors, with an open plan rear facing reception room / dining area, a fitted kitchen, pantry, second reception room, utility room and study with private front facing entrance. You also get a family bathroom suite and four double bedrooms, the master with an en-suite.

Head through the sliding glass doors and you’ll find the ‘well maintained rear garden’, while an integral garage and off street parking finish things off.
