We have featured couple of contemporary Frinton houses inspired by the style recently, but the real thing has just hit the market. This 1930s Oliver Hill-designed art deco property in Frinton-on-Sea, Essex.

We have covered a couple of other Oliver Hill designs in the past, with this one more than matching up to those. Hill designed this place around 1934-5, one of 35 houses intended as a showcase for modern British design. Of course, that’s a lot of years back and things can change. Especially with art deco builds.

The current owner is an architectural designer who has ‘thoroughly refurbished’ the property, adding on a striking steel and glass extension, but maintaining many of the period features.

That includes the large curved windows (which have been updated), the kitchen fittings, the Vitralite tiles in the bathroom and we would guess, the wonderful wooden staircase too. It’s a nice mix of the old and the new and an update even the purists would approve of.

In terms of the living space, that kicks off with the hallway and WC, with a study (or bedroom) to one side and the living room on the other side. Along front that is the dining room, kitchen and a utility.
