I’m not sure if it has the character you might be looking for in this kind of period property, but this five bedroom 1930s art deco house in Beckenham, Kent could be as winner with a little effort.
Not that there’s anything wrong with it on the face of it. On the contrary, this is a very well-maintained family home in a good area. It just doesn’t have that period ‘wow’ factor that original windows or even just an authentic front door could offer. Like I said, you can sort that out if you wish though – and there is a rather cool roof terrace which is certainly original.
In terms of the accommodation on offer, an enclosed porch takes you into a hall, with access to a ground floor cloakroom, a modern L-shaped kitchen with all those modern appliances and a walk-in pantry cupboard, along with a dining room overlooking the rear garden and a sitting room.
Head upstairs and you’ll find an L-shaped landing with an airing cupboard, leading to the first L-shaped bedroom with fitted wardrobes, a second bedroom, a third bedroom (currently used as a study), bedroom four and a bathroom. Oh yes, there’s also a second floor, with bedroom five (or a studio) and a shower room up there, with a double glazed door giving access to that roof terrace, which extends around the whole property.
Outside, you have an attached garage, along with front and rear gardens, plus room for two to three vehicles. If that appeals, 720,000 is the asking price.
