Four-bed home on sale for £185,000 is James Bond-style time warp to the 1960s with original appliances and avocado bath

A FOUR-bed house that looks like a mid-century James Bond movie set has gone on the market.

Time appears to have stood still at The Cedars, a perfectly preserved niche property that showcases original 1960s features.



On top of the multicoloured decor, with avocado and whisper pink walls, the kitchen at the frozen-in-time house is kitted out with appliances that are more than half a century old – but still in great working order.

For just £185,000, the four-bed, two-bath retro property in Lingdale, Saltburn-By-The-Sea, Teesside, could be the perfect family or holiday home.

Sarah Hartley, the owner of Leapfrog Lettings and Sales, Skelton and Cleveland, said: “It’s a great value for money.

“The price is limited because it has a timber frame, however, the property is originally a Swedish design which was popular in the 1960s. There are no signs of any wear and tear.

"It’s an absolute time capsule. Owners can let it out as a 60s themed holiday home. It’s got lovely views and the property backs onto open fields.

“We've had some interest in the property. It’s finding the right buyers because it’s a niche home.”

The Cedars is a mere stone’s throw away from North Yorkshire Moors National Park and has close transport links to meaning you could be in the nations’ capital within five hours.

It is largely untouched but does feature an Everest Conservatory with some secondary double glazing.

The abode is a wooden frame, cedar-clad abode with avocado and whisper pink walls and authentic tiling and kitchen appliances.

Sarah added: “It has all the original features, the dishwasher is even original, believe it or not. It’s immaculate, there’s nothing wrong with it.

“The kitchen is beautiful. It's fit with original tiling and 60s appliances that look as though they are barely used.

“My favourite feature is the master bedroom. The bedroom has fitted furniture and a long picture window, it is very much a James Bond bedroom with a plush thick carpet.

“It’s such a unique property. It’s very light inside. There is very little I would change, although it needs some TLC.

"I would do it up with décor you can buy these days that is attributed to 60s and 70s style.

“We’ve had people saying they would knock it down and start again and it breaks my heart thinking of that.

“You just don’t get homes kept in that kind of quality.”
