The name Royston Summers is a familiar one on these pages, not least because he is the man behind a group of much-loved modernist properties in Esher. He’s also responsible for another group of houses in the capital, with this 1960s Royston Summers-designed modernist property in London SE3 new to the market.
It is cut from a similar cloth to the Esher development, although the end result is very different. This is actually a terraced development of seven properties on the edge of Blackheath, with this particular property being a three-storey build with extensive glazing, so great views over the heath.
Those three floors give around 1,500 sq. ft. of living space, very little of it changed from past decades. Alternatively, very well maintained. Take your pick. Either way, you can enjoy a mix of glass, concrete and brick, open plan spaces and when you get bored of that, there’s always some communal gardens to enjoy.
Oh yes, this is the house where the architect himself lived, which is always a bonus. Talking of bonuses, there’s also a lot of the built in furniture and fittings from his time here too. Love that staircase.
As for space, you are looking at an open-plan reception room with dining area and access to your own terrace, a kitchen with original glass breakfast bar, a utility room, four bedrooms, a family bathroom and a guest cloakroom. There is also an integral garage and some off-street parking as well as those previously mentioned gardens.
A joy of a house. If you want to be the next owner, the asking price is £1,450,000.
