Is this the home that time forgot? Unusual Seventies style house up for sale in Balham

Although many people may consider the 1970s the decade that style forgot, it clearly still has some fans out there and a property recently put on the market in London serves to prove that.

This two bed maisonette in Balham, south London, may look like any other home but once you take a step instead you will realise it actually comes complete with a fully Seventies interior.

Not only does the property boast clashing floral prints but vibrantly patterned carpets and curtains too.

Despite the fact the home may have a rather dated interior the price is certainly modern.

The maisonette, which can be found on Burnbury Road, Balham, is currently on the market for £670,000 which may be surprising given the interior decoration but not so questionable when you consider the location.

It's just a 15 minute walk from Balham Station, which runs National Rail trains and also sits on the Northern Line, and it's also less than a five minute walk from Tooting Bec Common.

There's no question that the property might need a little work and it's even listed on Haart under the title: 'In need of some TLC'.

Even if the Seventies are your era of choice when it comes to interior design, the kitchen is in clear need of an update and plenty of other rooms in the house look like they could benefit from a lick of paint.

Sadly the only feature from the Seventies not to make its way into this home is the classic avocado that was found in so many homes, although the bathroom is still green...

A recent poll by Nationwide Credit Cards revealed that the 1970s was voted the worst era for home decor.



Almost half of those polled decided that the era of floral designs and shagpile rugs wasn't for them.

According to data on the Haart website, the average selling price for a two bed property in Balham is £587,275, putting this house above average price.
