Thanks to Stefi Orazi for pointing us in the direction of this 1950s midcentury property in Congleton, Cheshire. Just a shame we can’t see much of it.
The house, on the face of it, is very intriguing. First up, just look at that wonderful butterfly roof. You don’t see many of those in ether UK these days.
Add to that the agent’s words that this ‘architect designed detached bungalow’ is in need of ‘general updating’. That sounds like original features and finishes to us. But we just don’t know. Only the exterior is shown and the main thrust of the sale seems to be the plot size, which probably means developers will show an interest in the land and perhaps not there house, depending on planning permissions.
As for space, you get an entrance hall, lounge / dining room, sun room, kitchen, rear hall, three bedrooms, a bathroom and a WC, along with a detached driveway and all of that land (around a third of an acre).
We would suggest enquiring and viewing if you have an interest, not least because the house is up with an auction guide price of just £179,000. If you do visit, please let us know what is beyond that front door.
