For sale: Apartment in 1930s modernist Taymount Grange block in Forest Hill, London SE23

Tay1

You can grab yourself an apartment in an interesting and lesser-known modernist gem in the capital, specifically a two-bedroom place on the third floor of Taymount Grange, Taymount Rise, London SE23.

Designed by George Bertram Carter as a 'master and servant' dual room set-up and built between 1935 and 1936, Taymount Grange still screams the era in both shape and detail, but it's also a clever design too, with plenty of natural light and fine views over the recently-refurbished communal gardens (which are part of the deal), not to mention over the city itself.

In terms of specifics, the modernised interior offers up an entrance hall, reception room, kitchen, bathroom and those two bedrooms, with the option to lease a garage if you need one. All of the amenities of Forest Hill, including the railway station, are approximately five minutes away on foot.

One word of warning – the property is leasehold, but you can extend this from the current 65 years if you require. Price? It's new on the market for £265,000.
