Not seen one of these on the market since 2011. So we are excited to see this 1960s Norman Starrett modernist townhouse in Chislehurst, Kent appear on our radar.
That last one was a renovation job, This one is at the other end of the spectrum. But both share the same site, which is Greenwood, as modernist development of 19 houses designed by architect Norman Starrett dating from 1962.
The development is one of the few developments by Starrett for Hyndewood, a development company rival to Span, with the houses here arranged in small groups of ‘staggered’ terraces for maximum privacy. Talking of privacy, the houses are also in a quiet setting away from the main road.
Anyway, enough of the history, let’s look at the house currently on the market. That’s a mix of the old and the new as a result of work undertaken by its architect owner. Key features saved and maintained, with updates and modernisation elsewhere. A lovely job, all told.
The three-storey house is accessed via a forecourt / car parking area, with an integrated garage on the ground floor.To the right of the main building is a single-storey extension that with a second reception room / fourth bedroom, and a separate kitchen. Also at ground level is the dining room with sliding doors to the rear garden.
Head up to the first floor for the large reception space, with balcony areas at both ends. An open-tread staircase then takes you to the three top floor bedrooms, along with the family bathroom. Each bedroom has access to a further balcony space via sliding glass doors.
The outside space is both to the side and rear as the house sits on a corner plot.
