A beautiful Victorian family home situated close to the open heath and Greenwich Park. Offered to the market in excellent order, the current owners have created a stunning blend of contemporary style alongside exquisite period features. Some of the most appealing features include solid wood flooring, sliding pocket doors, ornate cornicing and ceiling roses, period fireplaces and double glazed sash windows. The accommodation briefly comprises: entrance hall, two reception rooms, kitchen/dining room, four double bedrooms (one en-suite and with dressing room), two further family bathrooms, utility room and a separate WC.
As you enter the house across a gravel drive and up stone steps, immediate impressions are of light and space; the high ceilings and windows that are so sought after in buildings of this age give all rooms on the hall floor a wonderful airy feel. The open plan kitchen/diner covers the entire hall floor and boasts an impressive bay window to the front and two stunning pairs of French doors lead out from the dining room onto a balcony with balustrade and steps down to the south-facing rear garden. The garden, which measures over 100 feet, can also be accessed from the sitting room on the lower ground floor. A further sitting room can be found on lower ground along with a utility room and bathroom. The master suite occupies the first floor with dressing room and modern en-suite with stand alone bath and separate shower cubicle. The final three bedrooms and family bathroom are found on the second floor.
The garden is split into three sections: first, a large patio offers a great space to dine and entertain outside, next is a children’s play area and at the very end are vegetable patches. Mature shrubs, and trees, including a wonderful 100-year-old fig tree surround the garden to create a secluded oasis. To the front of this imposing building is off-street parking for several cars and side access to the garden.
Vanbrugh Park is conveniently located for the various independent shops, cafés and Marks & Spencer Food Hall at Blackheath Standard. A stroll 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. Alternatively, Westcombe Park station is equidistant offering similarly frequent services into town. A direct bus also provides access to North Greenwich for the Jubilee Line. Royal Greenwich Park is easily accessible across the heath to the West and there are a number of popular public and state schools locally, including Pointers, Blackheath Preparatory School, Blackheath High School and John Roan.
