The house has been owned by just two families over the past 57 years, both of whom are architects and design enthusiasts. Originally built and designed by local architect Ted Keen in 1965, the property was arranged as two dwellings. Within the past 20 years the property was extensively remodelled and refurbished by another local architect Richard Grierson.
The accommodation provides contemporary living mixed with charm and character and superb living and entertaining spaces. Due to its privileged position in the middle of the heath, there are green views all around with plenty of wildlife and a tranquil and genuine countryside feel, whilst being just 12 minutes from London Bridge!
Features include vaulted ceilings, feature wooden beams, triple glazed windows, wood flooring and hot air heating.
The versatile accommodation is arranged over three floors and although has been well maintained in our opinion will benefit from modernisation.
This is an impressive house and properties of this calibre are extremely rare to the market and therefore viewing is a must. Virtual tours are available at Winkworth.co.uk.
