It looks quite a picture from the outside. Sadly, this four-bedroom 1930s art deco house in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire doesn’t quite match up on the inside.
No history is offered by the agent, but its vintage art deco credentials are here for all to see. The exterior and shape of the property looks to have survived pretty well over the years. We can’t say the same about the inside.
No, once you get inside the front door, it’s more of a country cottage feel than a bold statement of modernity from the 1930s. Reworked in the subsequent years as a typical family home. Presumably that’s what it has been.
But if you have some money to spare, you can always reinstate the Crittall windows and add some period charm back in, although it might be quite a significant job. Possibly worth it if you like the area and plan to live here long term.
On the plus side, there is a decent amount of space on offer here, including a reception hall, cloakroom/WC, lounge, dining room, study plus a breakfast kitchen and utility on the ground floor.
Head upstairs and you’ll find a landing, master bedroom with en-suite shower room, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside, there is a large driveway, garage ‘space’ and a garden. Note also that the property was re-roofed in 2007 and has a 10-year guarantee from that date.
£375,000 is the guide price.
