A substantial and stunning six bedroom family home with a separate, self contained, two bedroom annex.
The current owners have undertaken a complete refurbishment in recent years returning this beautiful house back to it’s former glory. While there are various stylish and contemporary finishes found throughout, the house retains an abundance of character and period charm.
Built in 1870 and once home to a British Major General the property is extremely impressive as you enter through the gates and arrive at the door of the immaculate, four story building. On the lower ground floor, the annex is currently let out separately. However, those who would choose not to take advantage of this income and have no need for a separate accommodation, the space could quite easily be reconfigured to incorporate this floor back into the main house.
Measuring over five thousand square feet in total, accommodation of the main house briefly comprises; entrance hall, six bedrooms, four bathrooms, two stunning reception rooms with high ceilings and ornate cornices, bespoke kitchen by Russell Blake Ltd, utility room, play area, study, downstairs WC and integrated garage. There are some lovely features all through the house, including an exquisite en-suite to the master bedroom concealed by bespoke wardrobes and features a free standing bath tub, his/hers basins, separate shower and under floor heating. Other carefully considered finishes include bespoke and original window shutters, original iron railings and balustrade to rear and a lovingly restored main staircase with feature stained glass window. On the lower ground floor, the beautifully presented annex has a two further double bedrooms, two bathrooms, reception room with open log burner and a modern kitchen/dining room.
To the rear, a fantastic, west facing landscaped garden caters perfectly for entertaining on the large patio area, with lawn and a child-friendly play area beyond. At the very rear, a detached studio houses a games room, steam room, gym and convenient storage area. There is ample parking for several cars to the front.
This part of Kidbrooke Park Road is made up of houses of a similar style and a stroll of a couple of hundred yards brings you to the heath. This vast green expanse is a true gem of South East London and provides a spectacular recreation area. Beyond the heath, Blackheath Village provides a wonderful array of shops, bars and restaurants. In terms of transport, Blackheath Station provides regular services into London Bridge, Cannon Street, London Victoria and Charing Cross. Alternatively, one stop down the line at Lewisham Station, the DLR has regular services into Bank and Canary Wharf. Looking north across the heath is Royal Greenwich Park with Greenwich’s historical town centre found through the north gates. Those considering schools have a number of options within close proximity, including Blackheath Preparatory School, Pointers and Thomas Tallis. Slightly further afield both Eltham and Dulwich Colleges run direct buses from Blackheath Village.
