This is one special property. That’s because the Obertal B-listed 1930s art deco house in Leven, Fife, Scotland is in, more or less, its original condition. That’s impressive considering we’re talking around 80 years old – and now it has been discounted.
The house is B-listed (equivalent to grade II-listed I believe) and you can see why. The bathroom, the hallway, the windows, the original mantelpieces and the sunroom with 360-degree views, not to mention the flat roof, all scream the era, as does that largely unspoilt exterior. This is one special house.
As for the space beyond that period door, well, there’s plenty of that to. You access through a solid panelled double door opening onto a secondary inner glass panelled door that then provides access to an entrance hall with wood panelling and from which all the rooms on the ground level are accessed.
That includes a dual aspect sitting room with the original art deco mantlepiece, a dual aspect dining room with French doors to the garden and also with art deco mantelpiece) and a dual aspect breakfasting kitchen.
The staircase takes you to the first-floor landing, which leads to the first bedroom with views over Scoonie and Leven Links Golf Courses to the Firth of Forth and beyond to the Pentland Hills. The second bedroom overlooks the back garden, bedroom three has a coastal view and the bathroom, well, that’s just art deco heaven.
A further staircase takes you to the sunroom on the roof, with 360-degree views of the surrounding countryside and direct access to the flat roof. Outside space is a lawned front garden, an extended garage and an enclosed rear garden.
How much for all of that? Now that the price has been reduced, £225,000 is the asking price of this gem.
