For sale: The House That Jack Built 1930s art deco house in Louth, Lincolnshire


Designed in 1931, The House That Jack Built was actually built by Thomas Dalgleish McLean, the winner of a competition to create 'a married man's ideal of a home' and shown off at the Ideal Home exhibition prior to its construction. Almost 80 years on and it's still a house that can turn heads. If it turns yours, this impressive property is on the market right now.

You'll find it in hillside in Louth, 26 miles from Lincoln, with 'panoramic' views of the town from the three-storey property. Externally, you could be stepping back in time, but like most deco houses in the UK, the interior has been made, for better or worse, into something more in keeping with the modern era.
