Not the most instantly eye-catching house we've ever featured, but this Peter Moiret-designed terrace house in The Hamlet, Champion Hill, London SE5 is certainly architecturally significant and ripe for a renovation.
A mid-terrace house, it's located on what is described as 'one of London's most desirable modernist developments' – a collection of 32 dwellings designed by Peter Moiret that all overlook a communal green, as well as being located on a peaceful hilltop site surrounded by trees, but still within easy reach of central London.
This particular house is 'on the favourable part of the development', facing the green and with leafy views at the rear. The ground floor currently contains a kitchen, an integral garage and a cloakroom. The first floor has a double-aspect reception room with access to a full-width south-facing balcony, and a small study room. There are three bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor, along with a good-sized garden at the rear, and an off-street parking space at the front.
Downside? Well, there's a couple. The current decor doesn't exactly fit the modernist aspirations of the building and will need some work to put it back as intended. That will need money on top of the already hefty price – hefty for a terraced property that is. Offers are invited around the £500,000 mark.
