It definitely needs work, but this 1960s architect-designed property in Glenfield, Leicestershire does have potential.
That potential is pretty much based on the living room, a wonderful space with double height ceilings and a gallery overlooking it. With its exposed brick walls and wood panel ceilings it could be straight out of the pages of a midcentury interiors magazine.
That’s the good part. The rest of the house is the flipside. Some rooms have been updated, others need some work. One thing is for sure, they don’t live up to the main reception room.
But take a step back, think of the front door and glazed area reworked, think of a new kitchen and bathroom and think of some updated bedrooms. Suddenly it becomes a minor midcentury gem.
Decent amount of space too, both inside and out. In terms of indoors, you get that huge downstairs living room / dining room to play with, as well was a kitchen, sun room and downstairs bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
Beyond the galleried balcony upstairs you will find three more bedrooms with another en-suite for bedroom three.
Outside is a long driveway leading to a car port, as well as a landscaped rear garden with lawn, patio and flower borders.
If this is your kind of project, the asking price is £300,000.
