For sale: Five-bedroomed art deco house in Willaston, Wirral, Cheshire


A great house from the outside, this five-bedroomed art deco house in Willaston, Wirral, Cheshire doesn't quite have the same wow factor inside. Although it does offer enough of a 'blank canvas' to put the period back in

Described as ‘architecturally significant’, the house was designed back in 1935 by local architect Hubert Thomas and can be found in the Cheshire volume of ‘Buildings of Britain’ by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner. So we're talking a house with some pedigree.


Sadly, only some of the period features survive from the original era. The exterior looks superb and the original roof terrace, the wood flooring and (some of the) windows are all there. But overall, it's more modern family home than period gem inside. On the upside though, it's not been overly renovated, so should be easy to convert back to a 1930s-style property if that's what you wish.


In terms of accommodation, you get a ground floor entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen / breakfast room, pantry / store and cloakroom / w.c. Upstairs, you’ll find the master bedroom, second, third and fourth bedrooms and a re-fitted bathroom. The second floor fifth bedroom also offers access to a large (parapet walled) roof terrace with good views. Outside, there's a gated drive, a double garage and plenty of gardens.

How much? Offers around £500,000
