Looking for a project? Well, this 1960s modernist five-bedroom house in West Kirby, Merseyside is certainly that – and could make you a few quid in the process.
The area is a sought-after one, so the large plot alone is going to drum up interest. But we’re not into land, we’re into houses – and this is a gem. Details from the agent are scarce, but it’s fair to say that this is a 1960s, modernist-inspired place with an interesting design, almost certainly the work of a forward-thinking architect.
From one direction, it looks like a bungalow, but from the other, it’s a two-story property that looks to have been ‘left’. By that, we mean it looks like someone has been living in it fairly recently, with possessions still all over. But it’s not been updated for some time and needs work. Hence the price.
For your money, you’ll get a hallways leading to both lower and upper accommodation, with the ground offering a lounge, dining room, kitchen and sitting room, while the first floor has a bathroom and four bedrooms. Not only that, a separate ‘annexe’ has a cloakroom, kitchen/utility, lounge, bedroom and bathroom.
As we said, plenty of land around too, so room for adding to the house in some way (garage etc for example). If you want it, some kind of sealed bid process is being run, with offers around £350,000. For this design, the land and the area, that is something of a steal if you can get it for that.
