Truly remarkable’ house on sale with unusual interior leaves people divided

An ordinary-looking terraced house in south-west London is actually fit for a Tudor once you cross the threshold.

The unusual property, which is accepting offers over £800,000 on Rightmove, has three bedrooms and two reception rooms.

But its the unusual decor in some of the downstairs rooms that has attracted people’s attention – as you feel like you’ve been transported back in time to an ancient Tudor property.

Its listing notes that it “requires modernising” but some house buyers might want to leave it as it is.

The property is clearly home to someone who loves Tudor styling and has transformed their property by adding lots of wood panelling.

The house is for sale with estate agents Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward and is listed for offers in excess of £800,000.

On the outside, the property looks like any a standard Edwardian terraced house – but a quick look inside reveals its unusual interior.

One of the reception rooms has an incredible fireplace on show, and as you travel through the house, it feels like you’re walking through history.

The house has been transformed downstairs, with incredible dark wooden beams and hanging lights, and few modern features on show.

Patio doors open on to the cramped but cheerful garden and the room is brightened up by the few apple green panels.

The characterful kitchen needs a bit of work but is a nice size.

This will obviously come in handy after lockdown – when you will be able to invite guests over for a sumptuous banquet for the full Tudor experience.

The bathroom is narrow but manages to squeeze a bath in and there are three bedrooms to choose from.

The full description of the house listing states: “A 3 bedroom end of terrace house, offering the opportunity to modernise and, subject to the necessary planning permissions being obtained.

“Sold with off-street parking and no onward chain.

“Located on the northerly fringe of the Southfields Grid, within moments of the local independent cafes, District Line tube and Coronation Gardens Park.

“As well as within close proximity to Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ local primary schools.”

The property has attracted some attention on Twitter after author Jane Casey shared a link to the unusual home.

She tweeted: “This is a truly remarkable house. Tudordian? Edwor?”

People were left divided by the cost, with one person replying: “File under ‘more money than sense’. Sheesh, I thought Dunedin prices were mad…”

Another person wasn’t sure, commenting: “That shade of green feels 60s.

“But the Edwardians also loved Tudor styling. I find it an odd house to read.”

An incredulous third asked: “Nearly a million quid and the amount of work needed?”

Another replied: “I can’t quite tell if it’s proper Arts and Crafts or an 80s take on such.

“Personally the houses with dated decor are my favourites – but not at 900k.”

Jane replied: “I think it’s 1960s Tudor styling on an Edwardian terrace. I respect the enthusiasm.”

She added in another comment: “It’s nothing like other unmodernised houses in the area.

“I think it’s a personal quest to make it look Tudor if I had to guess. I hope the owner loved it.”

One fan of the property replied: “It’s very special. Get a few horse brasses up and a bar in the corner, maybe a dartboard.”

Another joked: “Tudork more like it!”
