Think this one was up for sale early last year. If you missed out, this 1930s grade II-listed art deco property in Lytton Close, London N2 is back on the market.
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, which is why demand and inevitably prices tend to be high. The postcode probably helps on that front as well.
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 might also be one I 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 and especially when the house has been significantly renovated.
That’s right. This one isn’t packed with original features within – at least, as far as I can see. The appeal of this Lytton Close house is that the ‘shell’ of the property still oozes the style of the original art deco era.
An amazing exterior, which is the big selling point for the majority of potential buyers, including 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. Yes, a roof terrace. A detail that’s always top of the wish list.
As I said, the house has been ‘refurbished’ inside and although quite neutral once you look past the furnishings, the property is very much a 21st-century living space within. Like it or not, that is becoming the norm these days with properties dating back 80 to 90 years.
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 upstairs.
There is also a guest cloakroom within the layout and on the top floor, a study/conservatory accessing the large roof terrace, which has 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 £1,850,000.
