A unique opportunity to purchase one of the most important Modern Movement buildings in Britain. This mid-terrace house is one of a group of four on Genesta Road designed by the renowned architect Berthold Lubetkin in the early 1930s. The quartet of houses have the rare distinction of being listed Grade II* in recognition of their architectural significance.

Internal accommodation measures approximately 1,387 sq ft (129 sq m), and comprises three bedrooms and a bathroom, an L-shaped reception room and dining room, separate kitchen, a utility room and integral garage. There is off-street parking at the front and a long stepped garden at the rear. The house has fine views over London to the north from the upper rooms.

The house has been in the hands of the same family for many years, but is in presentable condition and has modern gas central heating. It has many of the features one would expect from an early Modernist house, both inside and out, including a sweeping spiral staircase, Crittall windows, white render and Lubetkin's signature curved balcony. For more information about the architecture of the house, see the History section.

Genesta Road is a long, primarily residential street. This house is located towards the brow of the hill, opposite the school. Shrewsbury Park, Plumstead Common and Shooters Hill golf course are close at hand. Woolwich Arsenal DLR station is approximately three-quarters of a mile away, which runs services to Bank.

The Modern House has not tested any services, appliances or specific fittings — prospective purchasers are advised to inspect the property themselves. All fixtures, fittings and furniture not specifically itemised within these particulars are deemed removable by the vendor.
