Unless there are two very similar properties in the area, this place was up for sale a few years ago. Now this five-bedroom contemporary modernist property in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
Art deco is perhaps the architectural style most associated with this part of Yorkshire and we suspect that a house in that style might once have stood here, not least with the agent using the phrase ‘Art-Deco origins’. But if that was the case, there’s pretty much no sign of it now (nor was there a few years back), other than a frontage that perhaps gives a nod to the era.
So we are looking at a bold contemporary design in its own right, one that is packed with premium fittings and with the kind of open plan living space you would except from a high-end modern-day home, along with an expanse of glazing at the rear, both upstairs and down.
In terms of living space, you have a ground floor with reception hall, cloakroom, sitting room, cinema room, study and laundry, along with the focal point of the house, a 40ft-long living kitchen.
Head upstairs and you’ll find the master suite with dressing room and bathrooms, along with three further bedrooms, watch with its own en-suite. There’s also a second floor, which has a leisure room (or bedroom five) with adjoining steam / shower room and access to as large roof terrace with views over the south of Harrogate.
Outside space includes a double garage, along with what looks like some well-maintained gardens.
A slightly cheaper asking price than previously, but still a sizeable £1,300,000.
