There is much to appreciate when it comes to this 1920s art deco property in Whitstable, Kent, which is just on the market.
Of course, there is also the decor to consider, which may or may to be to your taste. But does that matter? Not really.
This house is said to date from the late 1920s, a detached art deco property that looks to have been maintained very well in terms of the original design. But this isn’t a time capsule.
Far from it. But the building blocks are still there. In fact, a look around this one suggests a lot of originality. Have a look at the windows for a start, as well as the front door, the layout and the wooden floors. There are some vintage radiators too, which may or may not be original to the house, but do fit in well.
However, there is the issue of the finish. Much of the living space here is bold and colourful, with feature wallpapers on the reception room walls. At times they can be overwhelming and detract from the design itself. Don’t let it be that way.
Wallpaper and paint are temporary and if you don’t like the bright colours, you can always replace it with something you do like. It really is the least of your worries. The bottom line here is that the shell of the house is rather special, with space adaptable and plentiful.
The accommodation includes an entrance hall with storage cupboard, a large lounge with windows to the front and side, a good-sized kitchen area with access to a utility room and porthole opening to the dining room. Also that dining room itself, the lobby, cloakroom and a family room that is currently used as a bedroom and with double French doors to the garden.
The upstairs is made up of the landing, the first bedroom with dressing area and en-suite, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate WC.
In terms of the outside, you get a front and side garden laid to lawn, a rear garden, also mainly lawn with fencing and hedging and beyond that, a detached timber garage, which is said to be in need of replacement. However, the is parking at the driveway at the front of the garage.
Just on the market, it has a price of £599,950.
