Not sure this would pass for the architecture alone, but it’s the condition of this 1930s three-bedroom property in Enfield, north London that caught our eye.
Huge thanks to Elizabeth for bringing it to our attention. This is her parents’ home, which apparently has seen little modernisation since it was built back in 1934.
Ok, looking at some of the finishes there might well have been some work carried out in the 1950s in some rooms. But overall, this is very much a time capsule of a bygone era. That’s why it is so fascinating.
Plenty of original features here, including the windows, the stairs, the bannister, fireplaces and of course, plenty of originality in the kitchen. But as you might have worked out, it does need work.
Ideally sympathetic work. If that’s what you do, then you will have an appealing, art deco-inspired property on your hands with some all-important period features to talk up when visitors call round or when you sell. As we know from our time running this site, original features are highly important when it comes to the 1930s.
In terms of space, that’s made up of the lounge, kitchen and hall on the ground floor, along with three bedrooms and the bathroom on the first floor. Outside is a west facing ‘sunny’ rear garden and space for off-road parking at the front.
If you like the idea of working on this place, the asking price is £550,000.
