Other benefits beyond the generous plot size, room size and light levels:

Cavity walls, meaning no serious damp issues and can be insulated.

Usually built off a concrete slab so no drafts or rotten woodwork to deal with.

Solid internal walls

Often within walking distance of schools built at the same time

Obviously there are exceptions but having worked in thousands of homes as a heating engineer my points above have led me to the opinion they are typically the best decades of mass domestic building and lend themselves perfectly for major renovations and facelifts.

Some great homes here... Let's face it you can make any space a home and there are some very quirky ones out there from hobbit houses to igloos, from churches to windmills, from tree-top dwellings to shipping containers (as this one) and anything in between...
