If the stunning art deco house in Great Easton was out of your price range, perhaps you can stretch to this apartment in the 1930s George Bertram Carter-designed Taymount Grange in Forest Hill, London SE23.
Obviously this is a far more modest affair. But very much in the same style and of a similar era.
The apartment in question is on the second floor of Taymount Grange, which was designed by George Bertram Carter around 1935-36.
According to the agent, it is ‘oriented towards the south-east’ and is ‘flooded with natural light’. Both points. Another is the view over the communal gardens, courtesy of those large and original metal-framed windows.
Also original are the radiators and bedroom wardrobes, with the rest of the flat described as a ‘wonderfully eclectic and textured space’ with stripped wooden floorboards and bare plaster walls.
As we said, this is a modest space, with the apartment pretty much the living room / kitchen space, the single bedroom and a bathroom. So one for people who live in a fairly minimal way.
However, do get use of the communal gardens to the front and rear of the building and a garage can be rented from the freeholder if required.
£300,000 is the asking price, with an annual service charge of around £1,900 too.
