An outstanding Grade II listed semi-detached villa built in 1840. This impressive “Captain’s House ” is possibly the finest home within this prominent terrace fronting the Heath consisting of a three storey house and separate self-contained flat.

The house history, commissioned from local historian Neil Rhind MBE, identifies several previous occupants with maritime and naval connections; an early occupant, 1845-46, was Elizabeth Brockelbank, widow of the founder of the General Steam Navigation Co. The Brazilian film director Alberto Cavalcanti, who worked at the GPO Film Unit in Bennett Park in the 1930s on famous documentaries such as Night Mail, lived in this house 1945-50 when he was directing films at Ealing Studios.

Spanning a total of 3,883 sq.ft (360 sq.m), the property is currently arranged as two dwellings - the main house and the garden flat.

THE MAIN HOUSE boasts a wealth of features including high ceilings, ornate cornicing, feature fireplaces, bespoke built-in storage and sash windows, with secondary glazing throughout. During the refurbishment in 2013, the electrical wiring and plumbing were completely replaced and a modern gas-fired central heating system with Megaflo was installed. The house was also fitted with a Sonos sound system.

The accommodation of the main house comprises: large entrance hall leading to two elegant, interconnected reception rooms, with views directly over the Heath to the front and the garden to the rear. There is an attractive modern kitchen/breakfast room, a cloakroom and laundry/utility room. Upstairs are seven bedrooms on two floors. The first floor provides four bedrooms, two of which are particularly spacious doubles - one with ensuite shower room – together with a large family bathroom with separate shower and bath. On the top floor are three further double bedrooms and a modern bathroom, again with separate shower and bath.

To the rear is a wonderful 85ft landscaped garden with patio, extensive lawn and an 18’ x 6’ partly concealed garden shed. The garden has side access from Angerstein Lane, an un-adopted private road adjacent to the property.

Due to its enviable corner position, the property benefits from private parking for three cars at the side of the house, and a vehicle gate and short drive at the end of the garden. This off-street parking at the side has also enabled the development of a very pretty and well-kept front rose garden - which many of the neighbouring houses have had to sacrifice for parking.

THE GARDEN FLAT, with its own private entrance to the front, spans the entire lower ground floor. The accommodation, which was also refurbished during 2013, provides a large living room, an attractive modern kitchen, utility room and WC. There is also a large double bedroom, a large single bedroom and a modern bathroom with tiled surround and separate shower and bath. French doors in the main bedroom provide access to the garden.

The flat is separate from the house and has dedicated water, electricity and gas supplies as well as its own council tax assessment. The whole building is a single freehold; the flat is on a 125-year lease from this freehold.

This magnificent home has to be viewed to be fully appreciated and your immediate viewing will be essential. Virtual tours can be seen at winkworth.co.uk

The property is located directly overlooking Blackheath, with views of the Paragon, All Saints’ Church and Blackheath Village. It is just a few minutes’ walk to Greenwich Park and Blackheath Royal Standard, as well as Blackheath Village with its array of restaurants, bars and boutique shops. Transport links are very convenient with Blackheath Station 0.6 miles away and buses to North Greenwich Jubilee Line (1.9 miles) and to Greenwich DLR. Close by are several sought-after schools including Blackheath Prep, Blackheath High School and the Pointer School.
