Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This elegant 'stand-alone' house occupies a unique peaceful position in leafy Blackheath with extensive gardens to front and rear.

Built in 1805 the house has been the idyllic, much-loved home to the same family for the past forty years; and they have carried out careful and sympathetic renovation and restoration to preserve its heritage and character. This is a rare opportunity for the next generation to acquire one of the largest period houses in the vicinity of Blackheath Village.
Behind a carriage driveway filled with rhododendrons, it offers extensive off-street parking.

The accommodation is arranged over four floors and measures in excess of 6,210sq ft . The house offers spectacular proportions throughout, with high ceilings and large windows which allow natural light to flood in. It retains an abundance of period charm including original fireplaces, ornate cornicing, deep coving and working shutters.

The house is family friendly, and it has a self-contained one-bedroom garden apartment, with its own access, perfect for an au pair, a housekeeper or relative.

The house is entered through double front doors with an arched fanlight above, directly into a spacious entrance hall leading towards a beautiful staircase and doors that open onto the rear balustraded terrace with views and steps down to the garden.

The ground floor enjoys a mass of formal entertaining space including an attractive drawing room/dining room with an ornate ceiling and original marble fireplace, whilst full height windows overlook the picturesque garden. The sitting room is located on the other side of the house with a well-appointed kitchen between these two lovely rooms. A good-sized cloakroom completes the ground floor.
