Hot on the heels of this one comes this 1930s grade II-listed art deco property in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands.
But all is not as it seems. This is a grade II-listed property, one that was designed and built back in 1930 and structurally, is still a very striking piece of period architecture.
The house also has Crittall windows (double glazed) on the ‘vast majority’ of the property too, as well as a distinctive and presumably original staircase. But that’s where the originality looks to end, although the agent does point to it ‘retaining many original period features’. Maybe one to view if you want to be sure. Images don’t always give the full story. I think there may be one or two original fireplaces too.
But it’s fair to say that this is, as you have probably noticed, a heavily updated property. As such, that’s where it inevitably divides the audience. For some, that’s a marriage of the old and the new. For others, it’s a lack of period features and as such, a deal breaker. You can decide where you stand.
The house itself sits in a ‘secluded and private corner plot’ of around 0.65 acres, with around 3,100 square feet of living space, all of which is accessed via electronic double gates and a gravel driveway.
Head in and access the entrance hallway with downstairs cloakroom, which in turn leads to the sitting room with semi circular feature window and built-in seating, the snug and the living kitchen space with all the appliances you would expect. Also on this floor is the utility room.
Head up the staircase and the first floor landing with feature roof light and you will find the master bedroom with dressing room and en-suite bathroom. The first floor also has the family bathroom plus a bedroom with original feature fireplace, two further bedrooms, each with an en-suite, along with the family bathroom.
That’s not quite the end of the space as there is a double garage, as well as large car port to the front.
To the front of the house is a large lawned garden with ‘screening’ mature tree, along with gated access gives to a rose garden to the side which in turn leads to a ‘very generous’ lawned garden to the rear with patio.
More images on the listing and if you want it, the price is £1,350,000. That’s quite a jump from the £847,500 it sold for in 2014.
