When we feature houses, we try and work a fine line between the high-end designs (out of reach for most of us) and more affordable properties with an interesting retro twist. This 1970s four-bedroomed house in Crowborough, East Sussex is an example of the latter.
'Pine Trees' (as it is known) was actually built in 1970 and still has the same owner, which also means plenty of period features and the same distinctive shape of the era. Whether that remains is open to question – we can see someone loving this or completely gutting it, building something new that takes advantage of the land's fine views.
For your money, you get an entrance hall, cloakroom, living room, kitchen/brakfast room and dining room downstairs, with four bedrooms, bathroom, shower room and study upstairs. Outside, there are gardens front and back, plus a garage. Love that kitchen seating area, as well as the large windows and wood panelling on the walls. Some work needed for sure, but this is an ideal canvas for a stylish 70s-style home.
Offers around £450,000 will secure the house.
