This short row of Georgian homes are some of the oldest in the area, most likely built from clay bricks made at the factory then open at One Tree Hill. Original features on the ground-floor include an arched entrance and panelling in the hall, turned wooden handrail on the staircase and fireplace in the reception.
You have 1780sq.ft. of living space and a layout you can adapt to suit your needs. Today it's used as a 3-bedroom, 2-reception house, with the second reception on the first floor. But with a large kitchen, front reception and rear conservatory, you wouldn't be short on living space should you need an extra bedroom.
The kitchen overlooks a large south-facing patio which leads up to a magical garden expertly planted with a vast range of plants and trees (acer, lilac, willow, anemones, roses and wildflowers). There are two decked terraces, one at the front of the garden and a secluded spot at the very rear. The garden is surrounded by the nature reserve and you have lovely views of the exceptional homes found on this street. There's also a useful garden shed.
Being such a sunny house, glazing in the conservatory and second-floor dressing room/study has been treated with solar film There isn't a dark corner in this house and the upper floors have very good ceiling height. The first floor has a split landing with a bathroom, separate loo, airing cupboard, large rear-facing double (used today as the master bedroom due to the garden views) and enormous reception/fourth bedroom. On the second floor are two large doubles with fitted wardrobes, a study/dressing room and an en suite. From the front of the house you can see right across London's iconic skyline. There is ample street parking outside the house, being a non-through road.
One Tree Hill (named after Queen Elizabeth I picnicked under a tree here) is an unspoiled nature reserve and very pretty cut-through to the town centre past St Augustine's church.
