Always nice to see a 1930s Oliver Hill art deco property in Frinton-On-Sea, Essex on the market.

As you probably know, Frinton-On-Sea was something of a modernist testing ground back in the 1930s, with the likes of Wells Coates, Frederick Gibberd and Connell, Ward & Lucas producing designs for the Frinton Park Estate. But Oliver Hill is perhaps the name we most associate with the area and this house is one of his surviving builds.

I’m not sure if it is quite up there with this one, but it is notably cheaper.

The selling point for me is the architecture itself, which certainly looks well preserved from the outside. That half moon shape and the balcony area really do sell it. It looks like the design has survived without too much tampering over the decades, although the interior has been updated.

Well, in a way. The layout looks like it is still faithful to Oliver Hill’s original layout. No extending or knocking through here to create the super-sized family kitchen. The design is as quirky and as curvy as you would expect.

Original features? Hard to tell from the photos, but I would guess at least some of the doors, the circular windows and of course the balcony area (with sea views) to name a few details. But much of the house has been updated and the agency adds that it is need of refurbishment.

The sad part for me is some of the double glazing additions. I can understand why the windows would have been done, but the double glazed doors really need reverting back to something more in keeping. Maybe the windows too if you have the money.

Elsewhere, it’s a little plain and in places, a clash of styles too. It just needs someone to come in and bring it back to its best.

As for the layout, you are first greeted by the hallway, which leads to a lounge / diner with parquet flooring and curves double window. Beyond that is the cloakroom, the kitchen with built-in larder cupboard and more of that parquet flooring, an inner lobby, shower room, utility and a study / garage area.

Head upstairs and the first floor landing leads to the master bedroom (or sitting room) with double glazed door leading to the balcony, two further bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate WC.

In terms of the outside space, there’s a concrete area for several vehicles leading to a garage at the front of the house, with an enclosed secluded garden with patio and lawn at the back.

A project for someone and on the market right now for £465,000.
