Stepping into this perfectly preserved house designed in the 1930s is like stepping into a time capsule, with the same family having owned it since 1956.
Now, it’s finally being put on the market again for an asking price of £1.75million.
The original radiators, original Crittall windows and an original kitchen are still intact, making it the perfect buy for fans of period homes.
The property has three reception rooms to its name, as well as two bathrooms, five bedrooms and a garage.
New owners will also get to enjoy the home’s sizeable garden, iron staircase, ‘sunspan’ curved windows in the living room, roof terrace, original hardwood flooring, and 1930’s tiled bathroom.
The house is one of just a handful of homes designed by Kemp & Tasker.

Perhaps best known for their work on cinemas, a Kemp and Tasker house design won the Daily Mail’s Ideal House Competition in 1934.
Bromley-based Messrs Morrell Bros. Builders advertised that the home could be built to order anywhere, but only three are known to exist – in Dublin, Hayes in Kent and this one at Dorchester Drive, Herne Hill, south London.

The listing reads: ‘The original sales brochure described the ground floor as having the option of combining the two reception rooms with the hall to create a forty ft ballroom.
‘Its beautiful wooden floor, believed to be maple, also extends into the study which has full-length window views over the garden.
‘The roof is a perfect spot to enjoy the sun and the views over London. There is an additional room on the roof, not shown on the floor plan, housing the water tank and providing useful extra storage space.’
