For sale: Art deco Greenridges house in Lytham St Annes, Lancashire

Deco1

A special house that needs a special amount of money to secure it – Greenridges in Lytham St Annes, Lancashire.

Originally built as a wedding present from a Lancashire housebuilder to his daughter, it caught the attention of the national press, winning the Daily Mail Home of the Year in 1936 as well as appearing in Architects’ Journal as ‘The House of the Future’ – a copy of that magazine can still be found in the house.

Indeed, there are a number of the original features that captured the imagination still present – the exterior obviously, but also inset lighting, Minster fireplaces, original chrome stair rails and all the door handles.

You also get a large family home too, with a downstairs consisting of a morning room, games room, lounge, dining room, kitchen/diner and storage areas, while the upstairs has four bedrooms, plus a bathroom and shower room. Outside there are gardens and a double garage.

All of that will set you back around £1.2 million, although I'm sure they'll consider an offer.
