It is being pitched as a house with a development plot. So there might be added interest in this 1930s art deco house in Hull, East Yorkshire.
As a semi-detached house, the future of the house itself isn’t in question on the face of it, but with a potential building plot on the land, this is likely to appeal to speculators and developers too. With that in mind, the price could get pushed up. Hopefully, that isn’t going to push out genuine fans of art deco houses.
Because that’s what this is. A house in the art deco style from the 1930s that has been updated here and there. But it needs more work to bring it back to its best.
I don’t think it’s a great deal of work either, although that opinion is subject to viewing and a survey of course. For better or worse, someone seems to have replaced the windows for double glazing that hints at Crittall windows and the place doesn’t seem to have any obvious areas of worry at first glance.
But it needs someone to bring it back to life. The walls, the carpets, the light fittings and more. I can’t see the kitchen or bathroom either, which is never a good thing. Also, sinks in bedrooms aren’t exactly in vogue right now. This one needs a complete interior makeover.
Will it be worth it? I think so. It has the ‘bones’ of an interesting and substantial property and that added land makes it a great spot too. Especially if you don’t drop another house on the land.
As for the layout, that’s over two floors, with the ground floor commencing with the entrance hall with cloakroom/WC. Double doors lead to the lounge with art deco-style displace and French doors outside. Beyond that is a sitting room and dining room, along with the kitchen.
Head up the first floor and there are four bedrooms, the bathroom and a separate WC.
As I said, a lot of space outside, courtesy of a corner plot. A private driveway to the front offers off-street parking with an additional driveway at the rear leading to a ‘substantial’ double-length garage.
The rear garden is substantial with mature trees and well-maintained lawns and plants. As I said earlier, potential to use some of the outside space to build on, courtesy of ‘a substantial road frontage extending to the side of the property’. But you will need the relevant permissions to do that.
Whatever your intentions, this one has a guide of £400,000.
