Heavily updated, but the Cranworth 1930s art deco property in Quarndon, Derbyshire is still worth checking out.
The exterior is still very much of its original era, a brick-built property with pitched roof, white render and all of those lovely curves. Immediately, we’re enticed.
Whether you are inside or outside, you’ll notice both the windows and the original front door. Beyond that door you will spot the curved staircase from the hallway too. But beyond that, this is largely an update property.
As we always say, that’s not a plus or a minus. It is simply a fact. Many of the original features might well have departed this place decades ago, when this style of house fell from popularity.
What we do know is that the house has now been repurposed as a contemporary family home, albeit one with so much more character than your typical new build.
It is also quite a substantial place too.
According to the agent’s details, Cranworth has a ground floor with porch, entrance hall, cloakroom, lounge, separate dining room, a family room plus a kitchen / dining room with access to the garden, along with a utility.
Head up to the first floor and you will find five bedrooms, three en-suites and a family bathroom.
Outside are ‘pleasant’ gardens to the front, side and rear, which are mainly laid to lawn, although there are some Indian stone paved patios too. The house also has a detached, three-car brick garage too with connecting log store.
If all of that appeals, the asking price is £895,000.
