Much of the decor is from yesteryear and the agents say it’s in need of “modernisation”
While there is certainly a market for properties in London with period features, they tend to be homes with original fireplaces and coving from the Victorian, Georgian or Edwardian eras. But one property in south east London is something of a time capsule from the 1960s, with much of the decor taking you way back.
The 1960s-era 3-bed detached property is on sale in Blackheath for £775,000. The house is moderately sized, making it “perfect for families and new owners looking to make something their own”, according to the agents.
It’s described as “requiring modernisation”, and the pictures show why, with some retro interiors in the lounge and kitchen evoking the era in which the house was built. The bright yellow kitchen in particular feels very 60s and will certainly wake you up in the mornings.

But even if the interiors are not to everyone’s taste, the house offers a lot of space. It has a hallway, reception room, dining room, kitchen, and a downstairs toilet – another typically 60s feature. It also has a conservatory and a carport as well as a relatively spacious garden, with “excellent sun exposure and room for a garden shed”.
The property is just a stone’s throw away from Lewisham and Peckham. It is also just a short distance from Blackheath Village and mainline station, and is ideally placed for linking with Charing Cross and London Bridge. Visit Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward for more information on this property.
