It needs updating, that’s for sure. But this 1960s Eric Lyons-designed Span House in New Ash Green, Kent is still well worth considering.
This ‘KL’ type build on the Lambardes estate dates back to 1968 and is described as a five or six bedroom property, complete with a large garden and a double garage, as well as communal land. More on that later.
For now, let’s focus on the property itself, which benefits from being one of Span’s more interesting designs and one of the larger properties on the estate.
The internal space includes a large living room with floor-to-ceiling glazing, a kitchen / breakfast area, a separate dining room, a study and a shower room on the ground floor.
Head upstairs and you will find five bedrooms and a ‘good-sized’ bathroom. The largest bedrooms on the first floor is actually used as a living room currently, but is obviously able to be converted back.
We mentioned the garden, but as you might expect, Span also focused its attention on the communal aspect of its developments, not least when it comes to the green spaces around. As you can see from some of the photos, the setting is a selling point in itself.
Some work has been done to update and modernise the house over the years, but the house does look in need of some renovation or further updating. A retro/modern interior to suit the 1960s modernist era perhaps? That’s pretty common in most of the Span offerings we see these days.
Plenty of amenities in the village and a train line to London around two miles from the estate. If all of that ticks the boxes, this Span house is on the market for £425,000.
