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

Camden1

Not the most instantly eye-catching house we've ever featured, but this 1960s-designed Camden Pines house in Chislehurst, Kent has the potential to be a real modernist gem.

A large 5-bedroom house in what's described as 'a quiet, secluded location', it was designed in 1968 by the architect Roy Lancaster with a number of features common from that particulalr era, including a large, light living room with floor to ceiling glazing and 'free-flowing' internal spaces. Downside? Well, externally it isn't much of a looker and the internal decor is very 'mumsy', so you'll have to use your imagination about what it could look like with a bit of effort.
