Always a popular location, so I’m happy to feature this 1960s Span House on the Templemere Estate, Weybridge, Surrey.
Significantly modernised is the term I would use, with the house still very much the original Span House, but with a contemporary feel in terms of the fixtures and finish.
If you are not familiar with the location, let me give you a bit of background on the Templemere Estate. It dates back to 1963, a Span Estate that follows the principles of the company and its founder Eric Lyons, but takes its own route when it comes to design.
Yes, we are talking open plan modernism for the mass market and communal space outside. 12 acres shared between the 65 houses on the site. But the house designs here are slightly more leftfield. Angular and distinctive, with full height glazing to bring in the light and surroundings. This is also one of the rarer four-bedroom houses, which is ideal if you need a little extra space.
The ground floor of the house is made up of the entrance hall with cloakroom and WC, with doors to both the kitchen and the main reception area. The kitchen has contemporary high gloss units, along with access to the garden and has a door leading through to a large dining room. The dining space has views over and has direct access to the garden and a lobby, which leads to the study/playroom and stairs to the first floor.
A distinctive staircase leads to the first floor where there are four ‘good size’ bedrooms and what is described as a ‘surprisingly large’, recently modern bathroom with a bath and large glass screened shower cubicle, all recently refitted.
Outside you have a south facing rear garden, which is landscaped with a timber decked terrace, raised planted beds and ‘exotic’ planting. You also have access to a garage from the rear of the garden, with additional parking also available as part of the communal space. Some garden at the front too, with pathways accessing nearby woodland and the Broadwater Lake.
A very desirable place to live, hence the asking price of £765,000.
