Even Dr Who would be very impressed

The Nintendo Switch has been a staggering success

Console Corner: Why the Nintendo Switch is in it for the long haul

Have your say

Walk through a house for sale in Farlington and it feels as if you are stepping into another era.

But the 1930s semi in Rectory Avenue doesn’t take you back in time, rather it whisks you forward 80 years as you move into the kitchen/breakfast/family room at the rear.

It’s the sort of fast move you might expect of the newly transformed Dr Who, stepping from one era to another in an instant. Not that Peter Capaldi will be on hand to help you achieve it – the marketing budget doesn’t quite run to that, says Colin Shairp, of Town and Country Southern estate agents.

The venerable Doctor would be impressed with the house – its space is no fiction, after all, but there for all to see.

The kitchen/family room has a fantastically clinical but ultra-modern and clean workspace with white surfaces and black cupboard facings.

There is a wall topped with glass bricks and curved at the end on one side to create a utility and wet room while for those wanting a bit of privacy (maybe to hide unseen behind the sofa during a certain time travel drama) can retire to the living room, which still features its 1930s bay window.

The double height front bay also serves the second bedroom. Behind this is the master bedroom with en-suite shower room to complement the family bathroom. There are two further bedrooms of good proportions, one currently used as an office/study where three Velux roof windows throw plenty of natural light on to the workspace.

At the front, the house has a paved hardstanding with room for three cars plus a Tardis and a garage with remote controlled roller shutter so the Doctor can arrive securely and unseen should he wish! At the rear the garden has been levelled, with pathways around a central lawn.

Adjacent to the house is a semi-circular patio while opposite, at the end of the garden, is a decked seating area.

For those still studying for the qualifications to be a Time lord, the house falls within the catchments of both Springfield and Solent schools while commuters without a Tardis can access local bus routes or the roads network with ease.

Guide price is £340,000 (EPC Band D).
