Yes, another deco-style house in need of some love and attention. This five-bedroom 1930s art deco property in Blackheath, London SE3 could be something special in the right hands too, although it isn’t cheap to start with.
That’s probably down to location and size, which is a plus on both counts. But the downsides are also pretty evident once you check out the internal shots. The agent points out that is it in ‘need of refurbishment’ and ‘would make a dream project’. We can’t disagree with either statement. But it will be a big job.
It looks like the place has been updated over the years, with the current layout something of a ‘mish mash’ of styles. Ripping it all out and you might have a different story. There are high ceilings, original solid oak parquet flooring and what looks like the original stairway. Add some authentic Crittall windows and this place might not be a bad canvas to work with.
It certainly has space on its side. Walk in via an entrance lobby you will find double doors onto a ‘grand reception room’ with patio doors to the rear garden. There’s also a further reception room on this floor, plus a large kitchen (with room for extension), utility room and a ground floor WC. Head upstairs and you will find five ‘generously sized’ bedrooms, with the the master bedroom dual aspect and with an en-suite. There’s also a family bathroom on this floor, an additional room that can be used as a third reception and access to a newly laid roof terrace.
Outside the house there is a large gravel driveway for approximately four cars, along with a garage, which could be incorporated into the ground floor of the house to add further living space. Good sized rear garden too with patio area.
As we said, even with all the work, the size ands postcode means this place is £1,500,000. if you fancy it, check in with the agent, which has an open day on 8th March (you need to register to attend).
