Sixties1

It might not look much from the outside, but check out the interior of this stunning 1960s-designed terraced house in The Hamlet, Champion Hill, London SE5.

The Hamlet is an award-winning development of 32 freehold houses around 'an attractive green', dating back to 1967 and the work of architect Peter Moiret. Just to make sure that design stays true to the original, there is an active residents' association to keep things 'just right', throwing in the odd social event too.

This particular example has seen a 'sympathetic restoration' as you can see, maintaining the original features, but at the same time adding in those modern-day necessities. Best of both worlds you could say. In terms of specifics, there's an open-plan, split-level reception / dining area with extensive glazing on both sides, two balconies (at either end), three bedroom and a bathroom on the upper floor, while a large fourth bedroom or study with built-in storage is on the lower with access to the garden at the rear.

Not the cheapest terrace on the market at £550,000, but if you've got the money to spare, you can take a closer look at the open day on Saturday March 27th 2010.
