It’s actually in Ham and in what’s described as a ‘tranquil’ setting. That’s a bonus, with the building itself being the star of the show.

It’s a grade II-listed construction, the work of Eric Lyons for Span and a forward-thinking piece of architecture. This is from the 1950s and it has hardly dated. Well, it has, but in a good way.

The light and space are still selling points of property today, with this two-bedroom apartment offering that, as well as a few period features from the 1950s, such as a reeded-glass partition and doors, as well as built-in wardrobes. If you like the period, you’ll probably appreciate the way this flat has been styled too. Although that’s something you’ll have to recreate yourself.

In terms of space, you get those two bedrooms, along with a bathroom, a living room / dining room and the kitchen area. There’s also a new boiler in here (always nice) and an external store room for the overspill of ‘stuff’ you might have.

As you can see, some lovely preserved period finishes for the communal space too. This really is a step back in time.

Sadly, you don’t get it for a 1950s price. This one is up for £415,000, with an additional service charge of £600 per quarter too.
