Quiet, beautiful and spacious ground floor flat in historic Victorian (and Jacobean) Blackheath, less than 100 metres from the World Heritage Site of Blackheath Common, and a short walk from the Royal Greenwich Park, the Royal Observatory and Ranger's House. We are just a short walk also from the National Maritime Museum, the Cutty Sark, the Fan Museum and beautiful historic Greenwich. The flat is a 12 minute walk to the Lewisham transport hub, with frequent trains to Victoria, London Bridge or Cannon Street, and with very frequent DLR rail services to Canary Wharf and Bank (the City of London).
Our flat has a very large sitting room/library and the master bedroom is almost 7 metres long, opening on to the garden. Both have large windows, 3.5 metre ceilings with ornate plaster mouldings, and grand marble fireplaces. It is furnished comfortably but durably with antiques and oil paintings, and has been recently redecorated, but it is equipped with modern conveniences (washer, clothes dryer, dishwasher). There are bluetooth speakers in the three main rooms, cd player and turntable and unlimited wifi for your devices.
The kitchen has a farmhouse table, a double oven, a 5 ring gas stove, and a wood-burning kitchen stove. (We do not have a microwave oven.) A kitchen door leads to a very small second bedroom where a fold-away bed is possible for a child or infant and opens on to the tree-shaded garden. This room is pleasant and "country", with absolute privacy from every view. The garden is contained by an ivy-covered stone wall to the East and shaded by Black Poplar, False Acacia, Mimosa, Lime and Horse Chestnut trees, and has a small paved terrace with garden furniture suitable for dining al fresco.
There is one small but perfectly functional bathroom, with white painted walls and floorboards, a bathtub and shower within. Please note: one needs to be able to step into a bathtub in order to shower. There is also a basement for extra storage.
There is a bike that can be borrowed (the tyres may need some pumping), and taken out through the private path at the rear of the garden.
