You'll come across the most fortunate original features in this 2,500sq.ft. semi-detached house. Built by local builder Isaac Couchman, many have been painstakingly restored such as parquet flooring in the dining room, an original bath, a Catchpole and Rye W.C, restored tiles in the en suite shower room, working wooden window shutters, wood panelling, floorboards and fireplaces. At this time of year, the house is barely visible from the street as it's screened by acacia, copper chestnut and laurel trees in the 76ft-deep front garden. Both main receptions have original windows/French doors with working shutters and fireplaces with solid marble mantelpieces. Floorboards are polished in the front reception, parquet is laid in the rear and it's this room that opens out to the most extensive London garden you could wish for. There's a downstairs cloakroom at the rear of the stairs and a family room/snug with original pull-up shutters, a woodburning stove, original cupboards and original internal doors before you reach the kitchen/diner. Beautifully fitted, the kitchen has cottage-style white units, a breakfast area overlooking the garden, vaulted ceiling and a garden door. All 5-bedrooms are doubles; on the first floor one bedroom has and en suite shower room and French doors that open to a rear balcony. The front bedroom has alcove wardrobe, double aspect and original fireplace and the third bedroom has a double aspect and original fireplace. A wonderful freestanding copper bath has been fitted in the shared bathroom alongside an antique W.C. with wooden hinged seat and a stone countertop washbasin. Both eaves bedrooms have good standing height, copious fitted storage and the use of a bathroom with an antique roll-top bath, antique W.C. and traditionally-style exposed shower with rainfall rose. A stream runs through the extensive gardens where you'll also find redcurrant, apple and pear trees plus abundant blackberries and strawberries. Walk to Blackheath Village in under 10-minutes' for boutiques, bars, restaurants and the station for Victoria, Cannon Street, Charing Cross, Waterloo and London Bridge services. You can pick up DLR links at Lewisham, which is one stop away and offers Canary Wharf and Bank links. If you walk across the glorious Heath itself, you'll find the entrance to Royal Greenwich Park. Local schools are superb and include John Ball, Heath House, Blackheath Prep and Brooklands. ...Read Less
