OK property geeks, have a look at this and tell me when you think it was built... I've just got the title deeds and was surprised!

I'm going for much much earlier around 1920

I'd say 1950s.

Ah - hadn't looked at inside

Earlier then - 20s or 30s

OK. Most people are more clued in than me.

It was built in 1938. I thought maybe 1950? The decor is more 60s/70s though. It just doesn't say 1930s house to me. This is my idea of a 30s house (nearby)

So if you thought it was 1920s/30s, how did you know?

Another one saying 1920s/30s. It's mainly the size of the garden that makes me think this. Houses built later tend to have smaller gardens as land became more expensive.

From the inside lay out, I would say 1954 but the outside is indicating something newer. 1979.

X posted. And wrong.

I woudl have said 70's/80's but it does have that council house style brick which could make it earlier but I wouldnt have gone as early as that!

Verbena37 Tue 11-Aug-15 12:53:55

Definitely around 1930s. If you take away the newer windows and fake leading, you can see from the brickwork, it's a 1930s style.

Verbena37 Tue 11-Aug-15 12:54:48

Oops, just seen your post answering the age!

wowfudge Tue 11-Aug-15 12:55:06

My original thought was 1930s - should have stuck with that! Not that there's a prize.

TremoloGreen Tue 11-Aug-15 12:55:31

sherbert so funny - when I showed it to my father, he said "is it on a council estate?!" grin

InQuiteAPickle Tue 11-Aug-15 12:56:39

There are some properties near me that are new build but they have been built in the style of 1930s houses and they look similar. That's how I guessed knew.

because I spend too much time on rightmove and zoopla

I really love houses and buildings and architecture.
