A house with a stunning exterior and an interesting past, although this 1930s six-bedroomed art deco house in Luton, Bedfordshire doesn’t quite have the inside to match – but it is now available at a cheaper price point.
The house was originally designed in 1934, then exhibited at the Daily Mail Home Exhibition at Earls Court in the same year, subsequently built in 1935, along with only two others, one in Hendon and one in Bognor, to the same design. Are those houses still there? We don’t know – let us know if you do.
In more recent years (around 10 years), the house was featured on the BBC homes show Home Front, with Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and Diarmid Gavin reworking the interior and garden. That might account for the slightly bland finish we find inside. Bur you do get the ‘Hollywood style garden with a huge rotating egg cum cocktail cabinet’, should your life be lacking one.
Check out all the images on the site, but for reference, the place has three floors, with a ground floor offering an entrance hall, cloakroom, 30ft living / dining room, 25ft kitchen / family room and a 15ft home office / utility room. the first floor has a landing, two bathrooms, three double bedrooms, one single sized bedroom and a balcony, while the second floor has a landing, master bedroom with balcony and bedroom six / dressing room. There’s also two single garages, the showboat garden and a cellar.
If you fancy a ’30s-style existence in Luton, the asking price has been reduced and there’s no chain – £425,000 is the new price for this art deco gem.
