For sale: Unrestored 1960s Eric Lyons-designed Span House in Blackheath, London SE3


It might not look like much from the outside, but this 1960s Eric Lyons-designed Span House in Blackheath, London SE3 is offered for sale in more or less its original condition.

That's something of a rarity, as this place dates back to 1963, one of a number of modernist-inspired homes that appeared in suburban areas during the decade, all with an eye on good design and good surroundings.


This is on the private Cator Estate and has 'hardly been touched since its construction’, says the agent. So an overgrown garden, as well as many of the original units and storage, the original floorplan, flooring, underfloor heating and staircase to name just a few things.

The ground floor is entirely open-plan with the original kitchen area to the centre, full width picture windows to both ends and a door at the rear that opens directly onto the garden. Upstairs there are three ‘good sized’ bedrooms and a bathroom with separate WC. A high pitched roof to the front elevation creates two storage areas with natural light. There’s also a secluded rear garden which leads directly into the garage at the back.


Despite needing some work, you are paying for the location. That means offers of around £500,000, plus the money you'll need to spend on updating some parts of the house.

I lived in Ryculff Square and remember these being built. They were an eyesore then and a bigger eyesore now.In my opinion whoever allowed this to happen was responsible for ruining a beautiful corner of Blackheath.
