Art deco house by the seaside? We have one right here, this quirky Robert Messenger & Son-designed four-bedroom art deco house in Birchington, Kent.

It was built in 1938 for the retired sea captain G McCausland Hoey and is described as 'Streamline Moderne' in style, rather than typical art deco. Think of it as adding an ocean liner twist – perfect for a retired captain.


Accommodation includes four bedrooms on the ground floor, an open-plan reception area and two panoramic terraces located on the upper floor plus a feature staircase that creates a two-storey atrium, providing plenty of light to the interior. In terms of outdoors, there's front and rear gardens and a garage, with the sea on your doorstep.

All of that for offers around the £550,000 mark.
