For sale: 1960s three-bedroom detached house in London SE23 – in its original condition

Hon1

It's rare to find a house looking much the same now as it did 40+ years ago, but that is the case for this 1960s three-bedroom detached house in London SE23. It really is like a step back in time.


We're presuming it dates from the 1960s (or possibly early '70s) due to the 'look' inside and out, which has hardly changed over the decades. The outside tempts you in, but once inside, you can really appreciate that period splendour.

Hon2

Period features aplenty, including the distinctive fireplace, wooden floor, ceilings, fitted units, wardrobes and the kitchen. But there's plenty of space too over the four levels. Walk inside and find an entrance hall, a downstairs WC and that garage on the ground level, plus a first floor with a reception room, a kitchen and a storage room (used as an office), along with access to the rear garage. On a mezzanine level you'll find another reception room at the front, with a top floor offering three bedrooms and a bathroom.

Hon3

If all that appeals, you'll have to be quick, as the property is under offer. We don't know what that offer is, but the asking price is £399,950.

  • I absolutely adore this house.

    Hope they don’t completely rip the innards out of it and create some bland modern home, like they do with most places these days
