These properties are consistently the most popular house finds on the site, so I am obviously flagging up this 1930s grade II-listed art deco property in Lytton Close, London N2.
I don’t usually put the road or street name in the title, but Lytton Close is different. When it comes to art deco, this is the goal for many potential buyers and fans of the style.
The property in Lytton Close was designed and built around 1935, all to designs of architect G.G. Winbourne and constructed by W.L.M. Estates. Part of the Hampstead Garden Suburb, the houses are now grade II-listed for their architectural significance.
I’ve had a look at previous finds and I am wondering whether this is one we featured back in 2015. It looks similar from the exterior, although the interior seems to have changed over those years. Hardly surprising if there has been a change of ownership in the intervening years.
Not that it is packed with original features within – at least, as far as I can see. The appeal of this one is that the ‘shell’ of the property still oozes the style of the original art deco era.
That includes the amazing exterior, the balcony, the curved windows (presumably the original Crittall windows but I can’t say for certain from the images) and the biggest selling point of all, that stunning roof terrace space.
Inside, the house has been ‘refurbished’ and although quite neutral, the property is very much a 21st century living space within.
2,074 sq. ft. of accommodation in total, made up of an entrance hall, reception room, dining room, family room and kitchen / breakfast room on the ground floor, with the ‘principal’ bedroom suite with dressing room and en-suite bathroom, three further bedrooms and family bathroom.
There is also a guest cloakroom within the layout and on the top floor, a study / conservatory accessing the large rood terrace with wide-ranging views across the suburb. Garden space at the rear as well, plus off-street parking at the front. It looks like a garage is incorporated on the photo, but looking at the floorplan, this seems to have been converted to that family room I mentioned above.
As part of the refit, plenty of modern-era facilities have been installed, including Sonos audio, in-ceiling speakers, multi-room digital television and underfloor heating to kitchen and bathrooms.
I know some of you might prefer original features rather than a modern makeover, but this is still a very desirable property in an equally desirable area. Hence why the asking price is £1,800,000.
