For sale: 1950s midcentury five-bedroomed house in London SW16


An interesting property, not least because this midcentury five-bedroomed property in London SW16 is still very reminiscent of the era it was built. Unfortunately, it is being marketed with 'active planning permission for a complete redevelopment of the site', so it might not be staying that way.

But for now, let's enjoy its period glory, a period we are guessing is the 1950s - the agent gives no details of its heritage or the architect behind it. But one look at the exterior, the kitchen, the staircase, the wood flooring and the open-plan design of the place points us towards that particular era.


Set in a 'superb location', the property has a 38' main reception room with dining area, study, fitted kitchen, utility room, master bedroom with balcony and en suite, four additional bedrooms, two bathrooms, two guest cloakrooms, numerous outbuildings with one housing pool machinery, a swimming pool and extensive gardens, as well as off-street parking.


Modernisation is certainly necessary, but a sympathetic one rather than getting the bulldozer in. If you want to save it, you'll really have to shake that piggy bank hard - the price is £1,395,000.
