Not as stylised as some, but this 1930s art deco-style property in Dibden Purlieu, Hampshire has originality as a selling point.
Well, almost. There is one addition that probably needs to be addressed, but beyond that, this place is incredibly faithful to the 1930s. Work needed, but a great starting point to have.
Potential is the appeal here and really you have to look beyond the finish. It looks like as lot of the changes to this one were done in the 1950s and 1960s, but most look to be cosmetic. You do wonder if the original fireplaces are sat behind those electric ones.
But what I know for sure is that the structure of this place is original, the windows, the front door, the internal doors and perhaps even that wall of kitchen storage cabinets too. It just needs a clearout, some redecoration and some appropriate design in place within.
Well, one other thing too. At some point a conservatory was added and it really doesn’t look in keeping with the original house. The agent describes this as having ‘superb scope for extension’ and in light of the plot, which is about half an acre, they are probably right if you want to. But personally I would remove that conservatory and if you want more space, think about an extension more in keeping with the original architecture.
Not that there’s a lack of space right now. This is a good-sized house, with around 1,705 sq. ft. to play with.
Walk in through the front door and you are greeted by the reception hall with exposed wood flooring, leading to the lounge with curved bay window and two side-aspect windows. There’s also a dining room, which connects to that conservatory.
Also on this floor is the kitchen with the full height built-in cupboards and drawers, a lobby / utility room, a walk-in larder and cloakroom / WC.
On the landing is a window and glazed door to the balcony overlooking the front of property. Beyond that are four bedrooms and the family bathroom.
A good sized plot, it covers half an acre and includes a driveway leading to a single garage with power and light, an adjoining car port and store as well as a summer house. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with mature trees, shrubs and bushes.
If you see potential here, the house is up for £635,000.
