It’s effectively being pitched as a ‘knock it down’ property, which perhaps accounts for the higher-than-expected price of this 1960s five bedroomed house in Winchester, Hampshire.
But to be fair, the agent does also say it is ‘ideally suited for family occupation’, which it is, especially if someone in the family has a love of midcentury architecture.
Built back in 1962, the house is constructed of part brick and part weatherboard elevations under a Protec polly roof, with the accommodation spread over three floors, headed up by a large open plan sitting room and dining area, with views out over the garden.
According to the agent, there’s also potential for a self-contained annexe too, on top of the five bedrooms already in the property, not to mention a hall, cloakroom, playroom, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, cellar, a dressing room and bathroom for the master bedroom, a family bathroom and WC.
If that’s not enough, there’s also a heated swimming pool outside, as well as an integral through car-port, a summerhouse, a small garden shed and a large timber and felt garden store with electricity and water connected.
Not cheap though, perhaps because of that development potential, the asking price being £1,500,000.
