This impressive detached home is a fine example of Gothic Victorian architecture.
Built circa 1876, this six bedroom house is set back from the road behind iron gates and accessed via a gravelled carriageway drive. A detached coach house also forms part of the estate which spans approximately 1.3 acres.
The current owners have cleverly renovated the property in keeping with its era, and many period features have been maintained. Most of the rooms on the ground and first floor boast high ceilings, ornate cornicing, ceiling roses, original sash windows with Victorian shutters and solid wood internal doors, all with original brass fittings.
Separated by large folding doors, the two formal reception rooms run the full length of the house. Both rooms are substantial in size and include feature fireplaces, one log burner, and solid oak flooring. The rooms stretch to 45ft with original doors out to the rear garden. The attractive farmhouse style kitchen is made up of hand crafted bespoke solid wood units including a large central island, Silestone worktops and integrated appliances. There is also a study on this floor with doors out the rear, a laundry room, boot room and WC. A cast iron spiral staircase leads down to a large cellar, currently housing a full sized snooker table and offering lots of potential for further living space.
To the first floor, there are three generously sized bedrooms with the master benefiting from a dressing room. There is a lavish bathroom with central roll top bath, his and hers basins, a walk-in shower with rainforest showerhead and under floor heating. A further tiled shower room completes this floor. The top floor was once used as a self-contained apartment and could be ideal space for older children or an au pair. The accommodation comprises a living area with kitchenette, recently fitted bathroom, two double bedrooms, a study and a games room.
Next to the main house is a charming detached cottage, ‘The White House’, with open plan living room opening onto the fitted kitchen with skylights and access to a private patio area. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a shower room. There is also a garage attached.
At the rear of the house a large York stone patio leads to the beautiful garden that stretches over 350ft of lawn, mature shrubs, trees and a full sized tennis court at the end.
Norlesden House is located within close proximity to Mottingham Station offering regular services into The City and Canary Wharf from 28 minutes via DLR. The highly sought after Eltham College is a short walk away and Colfe’s School is also within close proximity. Furthermore, amenities such as shops, restaurants and bars can be found in nearby Blackheath, Greenwich and Chislehurst.
