This 1970s William Wilkinson-designed modernist property in Enfield, Greater London was designed and built by Enfield Council’s chief planning architect back in the day – and comes most of the original features and detailing from that original build.
If you just look at this place from the outside, you might expect it to be a timewarp property from the 1970. It isn’t quite that, but it isn’t far off either.
The house, which you’ll find at the end of a cul-de-sac overlooking the New River is generally faithful to the architect’s design both inside and out, but the likes of the kitchen and the bedrooms have been updated over the years. Nothing radical, the clean finishes of both complement that generally 1970s interior.
But the large windows, original brickwork, stairways, wood panel ceilings remain, as does the light and spacious layout of the original design. Talking of space, the majority of the accommodation is on the ground floor, including a formal reception and dining room with fireplace (and access to the patio), a kitchen / breakfast room, office, WC, family bathroom and five double bedrooms, four of which comes with en-suites. Stairs then lead you to a half landing and second living room with floor-to-ceiling windows across the length of the room, overlooking the gardens and river. There is also a bedroom and bathroom on this floor.
Outside, you’ll find a large garage and a games room plus extra storage space, not to mention ample outside recreational space on the large plot.
Great space and great design. If you fancy it, the house is on the market for £1,200,000.
