I think this five-bedroom 1930s art deco property in Hayling Island, Hampshire is worth a mention, although if we’re being honest, we are not in love with its current finish.
But that’s down to personal taste, maybe the blank canvas this place offers will appeal to some buyers. It looks like it has been on the receiving end of an update though, just a shame the renovation couldn’t stretch to Crittall Windows and have kept some of the period features (if they were there in the first place – they might have been removed by a previous owner).
Unusual finish for the outside too, which seems to be textured. Is that original? We really don’t know. But the shape is very distinctive and as we said, the inside is very blank canvas. A trip down to a reclamation yard and those windows could really lift this place if you put the effort in.
Enter into the ‘spacious’ hallway and you’ll find a cloakroom, a lounge overlooking the back garden, a dining room (again overlooking the rear garden) with glazed patio door, a kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and a family room or fifth bedroom.
Head upstairs and onto the galleried style landing and you’ll find the master bedroom with en-suite, three further bedrooms and two bathrooms. Outside, you’ll find a large drive, a large detached garage with rood terrace, a workshop/store and a good-sized garden.
So this is unlikely to sell itself readily to an art deco lover, but there is potential to put some period back in if that’s what you prefer. £595,000 is the asking price, regardless of what you do with it.
