Big thanks to both Graham and Charlotte, both of whom sent us this place, known as the W. F. Tuthill-designed The Lantern art deco property in West Runton, Norfolk.
There’s something of a mystery about this 1930s build, not least because there are no internal shots of the house. However, the agent does say that the house has been in the same family for 50 years and has an interior that ‘retains many 1930s features including the Bakelite door furniture, fitted cupboards and the original front door’, not to mention a kitchen that is ’relatively untouched’. Yes, that is something to get our pulses racing.
The agent also points out that the house is ‘now considered suitable for a programme of renovation’. How much depends on what you find beyond the front door. We honestly don’t know. If you are a serious buyer, book a viewing.
There is a modern addition on the form of a conservatory, with the space also including that kitchen with fitted cupboards and walk-in pantry, an L-shaped sitting/dining room, that is triple aspect, a study, and a double bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor.
Head upstairs and you will find the triple aspect master bedroom with sea views and a door out onto the roof terrace, a further double bedroom, a single bedroom and the WC.
The house also has mature gardens, a driveway, detached garage and a coastline not too far away. The guide price is £400,000.
