We have covered many Span developments in the past, but none with the kind of picturesque location offered by this 1960s three-bedroom Span House in Lakeside, Weybridge, Surrey.
Span houses, as you might recall, were built from the ’50s to the ’70s, modernist-inspired builds with a focus on good surroundings and affordable price tags. This Lakeside development is one of the more sought-after locations.
That’s because the 10 houses that form the development were built on the site of a Victorian mansion known as Lake House, which, like these later houses, enjoyed views over Broadwater Lake – it’s at the bottom of the communal garden for the houses. If you love birds and wildlife, you’ll love it.
Of course, a love of ’60s architecture will seal the deal too. This house is unmistakably of the era, with a private courtyard entrance leading to the front door and entrance hall as well as the kitchen. The ground level also has a large living room with windows overlooking the grounds and lake, as well as a shower/cloak room off the entrance hall.
Go up the staircase to find three ‘well proportioned’ bedrooms, two of which offer views over the communal grounds and lake. There’s also a family bathroom, along with built-in storage. That’s not all though – from the main living room, a second staircase descends to a garden living room with patio doors which open onto a private patio which in turn leads to those communal grounds. A garage finishes things off, along with other parking nearby.
These houses don’t come up often and although this looks to need some modernising, it still commands a fairly high price because of that location. £625,000 is that price.
