For sale: 1960s midcentury house in Keston, Kent in need of complete upgrade


Fancy a project? This 1960s four-bedroom midcentury house in Keston, Kent will certainly keep you busy, both physically and financially.

The house is around 50 years old and has been in the same ownership since then. On the plus side, that means this is faithful to the 'ground breaking' 1960s design, but on the downside, it needs some serious work. The agent describes it as being in 'poor condition' and is pitching it as both a renovation and for 'complete redevelopment'. Hopefully the former, not the latter, actually happens.


Sat on an elevated plot, the house has an entrance porch and lobby, leading to the kitchen/breakfast room, a living room with panoramic view and a hole in the wall fireplace, an inner lobby, two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, a bathroom with circular sky light window and a third bedroom/study. The lower ground floor also has a main room with full-length windows, a second room with a full-length window to the rear, access to a cellar, a utility/boiler room, cloakroom and integrated garage.

Topped off with overgrown gardens, the house is on the market for £500,000. That indicates a desirable location – and you never know, if you are ready to go, a cheeky offer might secure it.
