Now this could be something really special. Although right now it is a 1930s art deco property in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire which is in need of renovation.
We don’t know how much because the agent doesn’t show too many internal shots. But the ones it does show hint at work both decorative and perhaps structural, with damp showing in some of the rooms. Of course, a viewing and survey will give you full picture.
The other reason is that perhaps the plot in this part of the world is of more value than the architecture. This house sits in 1.75 acres of land, which includes the likes of terracing, mature gardens and trees, a pond, a tennis court and plenty of lawn.
Also in that land is a triple garage with power and various outbuildings, all of which could be utilised for various things. Home office or guest accommodation obviously spring to mind.
But the star of the show is the house itself. A distinctive and grand affair, it offers plenty of space and we suspect, a few period features too. The glimpse inside we do have indicates original internal doors and a sweeping staircase. If you do view, please let us now just how much originality survives.
What we do know is the layout. That kicks off with the hallway and access to that curved staircase and triple aspect drawing room, which in turn has access to the dining room. An inner hallways leads to the cloakroom, family room and what looks like a fairly recent kitchen and breakfast room.
Head up the feature stairway and you will find four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate WC.
As I said, this is something of a mystery property which perhaps offers more than the images show. But before you knock down the door of the agent, note that the plot and architecture mean a hefty asking price of £1,790,000.
