More modernism in the Dulwich area of the market. In fact, a rare opportunity to secure a 1960s Austin Vernon & Partners-designed house on Peckarmans Wood, London SE26.
Specifically, this was the work of Malcolm Pringle of that firm, with the design said to be ‘the finest of all the 1960s Dulwich houses’. Indeed, the agent adds that these ‘ranch’ style houses rarely come up for sale. So if you’ve been waiting patiently, read on.
The house here dates back to 1963, offering a great location with a peaceful setting and some lovely landscaping just over the wall, as well as the architecture itself.
In this case, a house described as being in ‘excellent condition’ as well as ‘carefully maintained’ and ‘sympathetically updated’ over the years by its present occupants,
That is borne out in the images too. A lovely mix of the old and the new. The original 1960s design still very much in place, not least with the glazing, the stairway and the overall layout. But updated for the modern era too, especially when it comes to the kitchen area. and the general decor. It works for us.
As for the layout, the entrance hall, kitchen-dining room, bathroom and bedroom are on the upper ground / entrance floor, with the living room and a further bedroom / study on the first floor.
The living room is a key selling point here, light and bright with a pitched roof and floor-to-ceiling glazing overlooking the greenery beyond. There are clerestory windows on the opposite wall too,so dual-aspect as well.
There is a private rear garden too, which leads to ‘extensive’ communal grounds, with a small front garden too, along with an enclosed patio. Note that the house also has a ‘large storage space’ which some neighbouring houses have ‘excavated’ to add to the accommodation. Presumably planning permission needed if that’s your plan.
If you like the look of the place, £1,025,000 is the asking price.
