Regular readers will remember we featured this house around 18 months back, when it first went up for sale. Well, for any number of reasons, this stunning Melville Aubin-designed Sunpark 1930s art deco house in Brixham, Devon didn't sell – and is now heading to auction at a much-reduced guide price.
Sunpark is an incredibly distinctive, grade II-listed property, which dates back to 1935 and comes with plenty of features dating back to that original era too – always important when it comes to art deco homes. That includes the white asymmetric exterior, the distinctive radius bay windows, a stair case with polished Chrome handrail, parquet flooring throughout, original fireplaces and what every art deco home needed, a solarium.
In terms of rooms, there are two entrance halls, a dining room, sitting room and kitchen downstairs, with the first floor offering a landing, three bedrooms, a study, bathroom and cloakroom. There's also a roof terrace, walled garden and an outside toilet, that last feature perhaps indicating that it might well need a bit of modernising. Sympathetically ideally.
Originally it was on the market for £695,000. But when it goes to auction on June 22nd at the Legacy International Hotel in Plymouth, the guide price is a much-reduced £450,000. If you want to know more. there's a downloadable PDF here or contact the estate agent.
