1930s Berthold Lubetkin-designed modernist house on Genesta Road, Plumstead, London SE18

Plum1

It's a style that doesn't appeal to everyone, but from architectural perspective, this 1930s Berthold Lubetkin-designed modernist house on Genesta Road, Plumstead, London SE18 is one of the most significant period houses in Britain.

A mid-terrace house, it's one of a group of four properties designed by Lubetkin in the early 30s, grade II-listed and one of the last few properties remaining by Lubetkin and his Tecton practice, alongside the penguin pool at London Zoo, Finsbury Health Centre and the Highpoint flats in Highgate.
