It might be a little overly stylised for some, but this is certainly a very striking 1930s art deco property in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands. Thanks to Louis for the tip off.
The exterior of this one is amazing, with the black windows and railings contracting the white finish. Love the curves and angles too. This is a dream of a building.
But where opinion might divide is once inside the building. Essentially, it’s all down to personal taste.
The agent points out that the house has ‘recently been restored/renovated to the highest order’, a phrase we can’t disagree with. Indeed, we also agree that the work has been done in ‘sympathy to the period and the style of the house’. But the finishes are quite bold and obviously down to the personal taste of the owner. If you don’t like it, there’s a simple answer – redecorate. There is nothing that some decorating and new furnishings won’t change here.
In terms of the space, as reception hall with cloakroom leads to the sitting room with period fireplace, a family dining room wit deco-style fireplace, new breakfast kitchen space with French doors to the garden terrace and a rear porch study area.
Of course, there is that wonderful roof terrace too, again with individually designed wrought iron protective railings.
Beyond the house is the garage with electric doors and a connecting door to the rear porch plus the gardens, which are landscaped on three sides and with a flagstone patio with LED lighting and central steps rising to a levelled lawn. A stone barbecue and hot tub too.
Fancy living here? It’s on the market right now for £895,000.
