Occupying a prime position overlooking the heath towards Greenwich Park, this stunning Victorian house offers a wealth of space and elegance.
Set well back from a quiet road, you approach the house across an attractive, landscaped gravel driveway with space for several vehicles.
The striking glass topped entrance lobby hints to what is to come: ornate high ceilings, beautiful restored dark wooden flooring, stunning fireplaces, large solid wood doors, stained glass, and floor to ceiling windows with working shutters. Measuring almost 5,000 sq. ft. internally, this memorable house enjoys an abundance of space and a richness of period features.
On the hall floor are two superb reception rooms, one at the front with heath views, and one at the rear with a bow window overlooking the charming garden. This room has a connecting door to a smaller ante room, which could be used as a study.
Stairs lead down to the lower ground floor and up to the bedrooms. The lower ground has an open plan shaker-style kitchen/living area with a central island and breakfast bar, Aga, double butler sink, granite worktops and integrated appliances. Folding doors lead into a majestic oval-shaped dining area with French windows to the garden. There is a door to an adjoining smaller reception room. Also on this floor are a utility room with wine cellar and a cloakroom. Stone flooring runs throughout this level.
On the first floor are three impressive double bedrooms complete with fire places and wonderful views of the heath and garden. The opulent family bathroom has marble flooring, a free standing bath and shower. Three further rooms are found on the top floor, along with another beautiful bathroom.
The delightful cottage garden, mainly laid to lawn, extends 150 ft and includes a patio area with seating, an arbour of mature wisteria and clematis, as well as flowering plant borders and trees. At the back of the garden are a shed and an outhouse with windows and electricity. There is access to the garden from the rear and the side.
Vanbrugh Park is a great location which, being situated on the edge of the heath, will allow the new owners to take full advantage of this wonderful expanse. A stroll south across the heath will bring you to Blackheath Village with its array of shops, bars and restaurants, and Blackheath Station which provides regular services to London Bridge, Cannon Street and Charing Cross. Royal Greenwich Park is easily accessible across the heath to the west. Blackheath Standard is also close by, approximately five hundred metres away. Here you will find a number of local independent shops, cafes and Marks and Spencer Food Hall. Those with schooling to consider have a number of popular schools within close proximity including Pointers, Blackheath Preparatory School, Invicta Primary School, Blackheath High School and John Roan.
