The agent has this down as ‘requiring modernisation’. I think that might be a little harsh on this 1930s semi-detached art deco-style property in Belsize Park, London NW3.
To be fair, they have a point. The inside is a mix of styles and eras and with that in mind it does need bringing back together. But that’s not a bad thing.
The originality is still there in places. Just look at the frontage, those lovely windows and perhaps even the front door too. This is still a 1930s property at its heart.
Obviously the kitchen and dining area looks a little more ‘70s than ‘30s, but that’s probably not the biggest worry. Even there, the rear door onto the garden is original. We wouldn’t be surprised if there was even more originality if you stripped this place back too – but that is purely guesswork. You will need to view and investigate that yourself.
Good amount of space too, aided by a second floor (or loft are of you like), which is currently laid out as an office. Below that is a the ground floor with hallways, reception room and that dining / kitchen space we mentioned earlier. There also looks to be a downstairs WC on this floor too.
Up from that is the first floor and its three bedrooms and family bathroom. Gardens at both front and back, the latter also with a shed in the distance.
It’s a project that’s for sure and because of the postcode, not a cheap one. The house, as it stands, is currently on the market for £1,195,000.
