Perhaps one where you need to use your imagination. But this 1930s art deco-style property in Buckhurst Hill, Essex does looks to be packed with period detail. Huge thanks to Scott for the tip off.
Very little in the way of details from the agent here, only that the house ‘does require substantial modernisation’, which is probably the case in places. But hopefully that renovation isn’t going to throw out what look to be wonderful vintage features.
Of course, the windows looks like original Crittall pieces, which is a huge selling point here. Not least because there are so many of them front and back. But inside there’s more. The hallway looks pretty much untouched, the kitchen has units that collectors are desperate for, the bathroom looks like it might be original and with that in mind, you wonder what might appear once you take out some of the later furnishing details.
Not that there isn’t work to do here. The amount of dark wood and some of the fittings don’t really work in the modern era. But this certainly isn’t a complete strip out job. At least, that’s what we are hoping.
As well as being in a desirable area, this house also offers plenty of space. That includes a hallway, sitting room, dining room, kitchen and WC on the ground floor, while upstairs is the landing, five bedrooms, the family bathroom and another WC.
A garage outside, as well as what looks to be a good amount of garden and additional parking space.
The size of house and plot mean a hefty price, regardless of the work needed. This is on the market for £1,300,000.
