For sale: 1960s-designed Strarretts house in Chislehurst, Kent

Strar1

We recently featured one Norman Starrett house in Chislehurst in Kent, but now another has gone on sale – this 1960s-designed Strarretts house in Chislehurst, Kent.

Yes, the same town and the same architect, but this 5/6-bedroom house is significantly more expensive than the last one. Sat on a large, sloping plot, the house was designed back in 1962 as a ‘luxury’ house and has been ‘sympathetically maintained’ by its current owner, which is one way of saying that it’s architecturally sound on the outside, but accommodates the modern era inside with an updated layout. In particular, the garage has been turned into a studio space.

The house has a two levels, with a large living area on the first floor, extensive glazing and terraces, and original features, like the terrazzo fireplaces. As we mentione earlier, there’s up to six bedrooms (one en-suite) and other rooms including a large studio, storeroom and utility room.

The house has gardens all around, off-street parking for four cars and a hefty asking price. If you want it, be prepared to pay in the region of £1,250,000.
