Designed by Norman Starrett back in 1962, this large townhouse in Greatwood, Chislehurst, Kent is still every bit the 1960s dream.

Greatwood is a small development of 19 houses, all designed by Starrett in what is called the 'H2 Design' and arranged in small groups of staggered terraces for privacy. The three-storey houses still scream the era and offer open plan living in a way modern homes can't and don't.


The four-bedroom property is an end-of-terrace house and one that's had extensive updating by the current owners. Usually that sends us packing, but a check of the images available show a sympathetic modernisation that's perfect for a retro home with a modern twist. or vice versa.

In terms of specifics, you get a hallway, bedroom, shower room and an integrated garage and storage room on the ground level, an open plan kitchen, dining and living area on the first floor, three bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor, with extensive gardens and a communal area outside.

It's impressive, but at a price. That price is £530,000. There's an open day on 3rd July if it takes your fancy.
