For those with a fondness for Art Deco architecture (raises hand) and a penchant for fixing-up, this gorgeous 1930s property in the Knighton Close neighborhood of London is sure to set your heart aflutter. Designed by Clifford Herbert Lindsey-Smith, the 2,335-square-foot home boasts five bedrooms and an abundance of original period details that more than make up for the fact that the house needs a healthy dose of TLC.

Extended in 1979, the home features an expansive open-plan first floor with high ceilings, oak parquet flooring, a gorgeous tiled fireplace, and distinctive light fixtures, while sliding glass doors allow natural light to flood the space. A spacious kitchen with marble counters, tiled floors, an Aga stove, and wooden cabinetry is also found on this level.

An exquisite wooden staircase winds up a geometric turret leading to the second floor, where three of the five bedrooms include handsome built-in wardrobes, and an updated bathroom resides. Other amenities include a large, private garden and off-street parking. It’s yours for £999,999, or around $1,216,000, through The Modern House.
