One of these was up for sale as a development project back in 2014. If you missed out, check out this 1960s Walter Greaves modernist property in Blackheath, London SE3.
At first I thought it was the same house back on the market. But a closer look suggests that it is another property in this small 1968 modernist development, which goes by the name of Rocque Lane.
It’s a three-storey house in what’s described aa a ‘leafy’ cul-de-sac, with views over the nearby St Michael’s church. It’s also a house that looks pretty faithful to the original Greaves design both inside and out.
The outside is pure 1960s modernism, there is no getting away from that. The angles, the timber cladding, the windows, the terraces, you get the idea. And that 1960s theme continues inside.
Yes, some parts have been updated here and there, but the vast majority of this one is pretty much untouched. So exposed brick, full height windows, built-in storage, wood-clad walls and quite possibly an original kitchen, Although the latter is perhaps not the best selling point of this place. The bottom line is that with a few touches here and there, this one could be the ‘60s dream.
A good deal of living space too. That includes a ‘bright’, double aspect open plan reception room, that ‘spacious’ kitchen, five bedrooms, a study / sixth bedroom and two bathrooms.
You also get a walled garden for the outside space and if you don’t want the full-on outside experience, you can always take advantage of one of the three roof terraces. Finally, a double garage and additional off street parking is also part of the deal.
That last one was under a million, so prices have obviously risen over the last four years. This one is up for £1,495,000.
