For sale: Late 1960s Eric Lyons-designed Span house in Ashtead, Surrey

Span1

Another Span house on the market, this time an Eric Lyons-designed property in Ashtead, Surrey.

Designed by architect Lyons for Span in the late 60s, it is a K-Type house, considered the best of the designs and like all Span properties, very much about space and light. That means a good amount of glass, open spaces and the blurring the edges between outside and indoor space, with communal areas that encourage residents to mix.

The property on offer is a three-bedroomed house, located on the award-winning Westfield estate in Ashtead and with planning permission to extend for a 4th bedroom and dining room. But right now, you get a downstairs area with entrance lobby, shower room, hallways, study, living room and kitchen, while the first floor has a landing, storage cupboard, bathroom and those three bedrooms. There's also a separate garage, as well as space for off-street parking on the estate.

All of that will set you back something on the region of £399,000.
