Regular readers might recognise this as a previous feature. That’s because this 1950s Ivor Berresford-designed grade II-listed midcentury house in Sundridge Park, Bromley, Kent was originally on the market as a let. It’s now available to buy, should you fancy the move to Kent.
The house dates back to 1958 and amazingly, is still owned by the man who designed it, architect Ivor Berresford. Obviously the architect has taken a great deal of effort to maintain the original design, which was inspired by the emerging architecture of the US. In fact, this is almost like a step back in time.
The accommodation includes five bedrooms (one with a dressing area), a stunning first-floor living room with floor-to-ceiling glazing, a large storage area, a study, a bathroom, a dining room and a kitchen. There’s also a garage integrated into the house, a large garden and a short driveway for off-street parking.
If location is an issue, this house is around 10 miles from the centre of London, with a train station around five minutes walk from the house, trains reaching London in around half an hour.
If you want to own this midcentury gem, you’ll need somewhere around £795,000 to secure it. The furnishings are presumably extra – but probably well worth that ‘extra’.
