5 bed house for sale in An authentic Scandinavian style house in a stunning position (ref: 9230629)Shortlist
The house has been in the same ownership since new and over the forty intervening years the property has been carefully maintained but little altered. Consequently, for some there may be the requirement to update the house in terms of fixtures and fittings particularly if real original Avocado bathrooms are not to taste. Nevertheless, the asking price today reflects that potential given that a neighbouring property of the same design sold for the better part of £700,000 2 years ago with only superficial improvements.
This house certainly offers a tremendous opportunity for those with a bit of imagination and no other house here is this unquestionably premium setting offers a better plot facing perfectly south and west at the rear.
The properties in Charterhouse Close should not be confused with other non genuine Scandinavian houses elsewhere in the town that are outwardly similar. These houses were built by a private developer who had the vision to import Swedish components and seasoned timber which coupled with unusually high insulation standards resulted in easily run but significant houses of a timeless design. Every property in the development offers a good garden but the story goes that that then Managing Director of the developers earmarked this house for himself and his family hence particularly prime position and one that also allows further extension if ever needed.
The quiet but very central location may be impossible to better, away from any through routes but within easy level walk of the town centre, highly regarded and outstanding schools and the station (under a mile).
