According to the agent, this house is requiring an ‘extension and updating’. To us, this 1960s two-bedroom detached property in Hutton, Essex looks just fine.
It was designed and built in the 1960s, with the agent adding that this is an ‘excellent opportunity to develop, add value; and create a very unique family home’. That last point is certainly true, with the place offering a distinctive modernist-style property that really should be easy to manage.
The agent might be alluding to the fact that the plot could certainly be used more efficiently. But that would mean losing the character of the property – which is the big thing here. As for updating, it looks like someone has already done a lot of this – inside it looks like a typical modern home.
In terms of space, this house offers an entrance hall with floor to ceiling glazed walls, a bathroom, a study, a lounge with front and side windows, along with a central floor to ceiling chimney with log burner (dividing the lounge and the dining room area). An archway leads to a family room with French doors and high-level windows. Finally, there’s a playroom that could double up as a third bedroom plus a kitchen / breakfast room
Head upstairs and you’ll find an open plan staircase, a first bedroom with windows to three sides, a second bedroom with windows to two sides and a shower room. Outside, there’s a front garden, a driveway, an integral front garage with power and a rear garden area.
If you fancy it, £625,000 is the asking price.
