About this property

TENURE: Freehold

A unique and intriguing four-bedroom detached former gatehouse in the Westcombe Park Conservation Area. Similar to something you would find in the Kent countryside, this delightful Arts and Crafts home is spacious, measuring 2,700 sq ft, and full of character. Accessed through a secure gate, you first encounter a truly enchanting, generous walled garden, well stocked with mature climbers, shrubs and fruit trees, including quince, pear, damson and apple. A path to the side, past the garage, leads to the entrance. Inside, you enter the vestibule which has a door into one of the reception rooms to the left and a door straight ahead which takes you to a grand hall/living room with solid wood beams and a magnificent cast iron working fireplace, with two casement windows either side. Above this room is a galleried Edwardian wooden staircase. To the left of this room is a large reception room with a stone fireplace and a section at the front which is used as a study, and at the back which has doors to a room with French doors overlooking the rear garden. This space is currently being used as a fifth bedroom. In fact, this room with its three sections could be used as a separate annexe if required. On the other side of the house is a large dining area, utility room/pantry, and a good sized farmhouse kitchen with integrated appliances, leading through to a charming conservatory with two sets of French doors on to the rear garden. Also on this level is a WC. The flooring in the kitchen and conservatory is stone tiled and the rest of the downstairs area is solid wood. Upstairs is an impressive master bedroom with a period fireplace and large en-suite bathroom. On the opposite side of the house is the second very good sized bedroom, a shower room, and two further bedrooms. The garden is split in two with an enclosed block paved rear garden and a beautiful front garden stretching over 100ft wide. There is off street parking and a good sized garage which is currently being used as storage.

The house is conveniently located for access to various local amenities, only a short walk away from Westcombe Park station. Blackheath Standard and Greenwich Park are both within easy reach. At Blackheath Standard you will find a Marks & Spencer Food Hall amongst a variety of independent shops and cafés. Finally, Westcombe Park train station provides regular services into London Bridge and Cannon Street.
