Valencia Road Art Deco House / Gerald Lacoste


Something of an iconic build, although the interior of this 1930s Gerald Lacoste-designed art deco property in Stanmore, Middlesex is perhaps very different to the original.

The house is one of a group of houses commissioned by Sir John Fitzgerald to challenge the bland housing of the day. Each was designed by Gerald Lacoste and dates to around 1934. From the outside, not a lot has changed in the intervening 80 years. But inside is a very different picture. According to the agent, over the last 18 months, the house has been painstakingly renovated under the supervision of English Heritage, but the end result isn’t some museum from the past. It is a very modern living space.

It is on the market for £1,795,000 — via WowHaus
