For sale: Renovated three-bedroom 1930s art deco property in Gidea Park, Romford, Essex


Not just an art deco semi, this is a rather impressive renovated three-bedroom 1930s art deco property in Gidea Park, Romford, Essex.

The current owner has renovated the place to a very standard, with authenticity at its heart. So you'll find the original Crittall windows to the front, the original porch and the original oak front door. All rooms have original picture rails and cornices and any modern features have been ‘carefully researched in order to try to replicate the original features of the house’, including modern bakelite light switches and plug sockets. The interior door fittings and wall lights are all original bakelite too.


The living room has a feature fireplace and original alcove detailing/features, a dining room also has an original fireplace, while the original staircase remains, as do the original bedroom fireplaces. An art deco bathroom is present and while the kitchen is an English Rose, it does fit in with the overall vibe.


The brief rundown of space is three bedrooms, a bathroom, a separate WC, two reception rooms, a fitted kitchen, a good-sized rear garden and an attached garage and its own drive, all of which is on the market for £425,000. See the agent's listing for more photos.
