More 1960s modernism from an area known for it. This particular 1960s Austin Vernon and Partners-designed townhouse in West Dulwich, London, SE21 does need a bit of a lift though.
Found on Lings Coppice, this place was designed by German architect Manfred Bresgen for Austin Vernon and Partners in the first half of the 1960s and although updated since, perhaps needs some more work to bring it back to its best.
The Bresgens designs are known for their central atrium and this one is no exception, with some wonderful double height space in the centre of the property. A gallery looks down from it and what looks like the original stairway is still in place.
The frontage and the window frames also still look like originals, possibly the doors too. Basically, not a lot has changed outside of finishes and furnishings from what we can see. Always a plus.
Another plus is the space. On the ground floor, the property has a large reception room, a dining area and a separate kitchen, as well as an integral garage and guest WC with shower. The first floor has four bedrooms with built-in storage and a family bathroom.
Doors from the reception room and the kitchen open up on to a private patio garden which in turn leads onto the communal garden. Off street parking to the front of the property too.
Yes, it needs work, but these places are always in demand. With that in mind, you are looking at a price of £875,000.
