Quiet, beautiful and spacious ground floor flat in historic Victorian (and Jacobean) Blackheath, 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 near 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). There is a regular Uber boat service from Greenwich to Westminster along the river.
We have a large sitting room/library and the bedroom is also 7 by 3.5 metres, opening on to the garden. Both have large windows, high ceilings with ornate plaster mouldings, and marble fireplaces. There is a small single bedroom with a door to the garden. The flat 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 , turntable and unlimited broadband at good speed for your devices. Unfortunately, we cannot provide any parking for a car because a resident's permit is required.
The kitchen has a farmhouse table seating six, a double oven, a 5 ring gas stove, and a wood-burning kitchen stove. (We do not have a microwave.)
Our flat is pleasant, roomy and feels like it is in countryside, with a good level of privacy. The garden is contained by an ivy-covered stone bank to the East and shaded by Black Poplar, False Acacia (Robinia), Mimosa, Holly, Bay and Lime trees, and has a small paved terrace with garden furniture suitable for dining al fresco. There is a small cellar for storage
There is one small but functional bathroom, with white painted walls and floorboards, a bathtub and shower.
