Hopefully someone sees the potential in this 1960s Norman Brooks modernist property in Canvey Island, Essex.
There is a lot of potential here too, as well as a lot of originality from the 1960s. Yes, some work has been done and there is the option to sharpen the place up a little more. But this is a wonderful project for someone.
Sat in what’s described as an ‘exclusive location’ and ‘one of the largest gardens on Canvey Island’, the house has potential for redevelopment in the rear garden, which obviously makes it attractive to a developer. But it is the architecture we are concerned with.
A cantilevered property with floor to ceiling glazing, it has the look of the era from the outside. But what about inside? Well, that’s a yes too.
That interior includes exposed brick walls, wood ceilings and a staircase very of its era (and perhaps not ideal for kids). Yes, some updating across the house in terms of figures and fittings. But generally, this looks to be the house designed by Brooks in the ‘60s.
The internal space includes a large / spacious entrance hall with good size lounge, as well as a kitchen, dining room and utility to the ground floor, the latter connected to the garage.
On the first floor you will find a ‘particularly spacious’ landing an additional lounge, a study (which could be used as a further bedroom) and four further bedrooms. An en-suite shower room to the master bedroom and a family shower room completes the layout.
If you want more details, the listing has that for every room in the house. If you like the idea of being the next owner, offers over £700,000 are invited.
