Up for auction: Melville Aubin-designed Sunpark 1930s art deco house in Brixham, Devon


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.
