Ok, it’s not got the trademark white rendering you would perhaps expect from an art deco house, but we think this three bedroom 1930s art deco house in Darley Abbey, Derby, Derbyshire is something special.
It looks untouched (more or less) for many years and comes with absolutely no background detail on the agent’s site. That agent just calls it a ‘project’ and mentions a ‘sought after cul-de-sac location’ and good access to the M1 and the big employers nearby.
But go inside (virtually) and that’s where the real story is (although the sharp angles on the exterior and the flat roof do give away clues to its past). There are some features that could be recycled within a renovation, while some others just need replacing. But from the look of it, there’s nothing huge that needs doing, except perhaps putting in some heating – just a couple of storage heaters right now. The garden might need a bit of work though.
As for the accommodation, the ground floor offers an entrance hall that leads to a dining room, as well as a lounge and a lean-to conservatory, breakfast kitchen and a pantry with shelving.
On the first floor, you’ll find a landing, three bedrooms and a bathroom. Outside, there’s that overgrown garden, a driveway and a single garage.
With work, it could really be a cool period property. If you want to take it on, you’ll be talking a price of around £285,000. More images on the listing.
