A truly exceptional two bedroomed garden floor flat, within this handsome early Victorian semi-detached villa, originally named ‘Clivedon Villas’ when built circa 1850, with attractive yellow stock brick elevations and sash windows. There are four self-contained flats within the converted building, the garden flat approached via beautiful flagstone pavings leading down from the front garden alongside the house, with the private entrance found to the side of the building, also with a further entrance at the rear on the stunning, private 31’ x 16’ south-facing terrace, in-turn with central steps leading down to the very attractive communal lawn garden, backing onto the railway line.
The entire flat has been painstakingly and beautifully modernised, with great attention to detail in preserving the tremendous charm and character, more akin to a National Trust property, featuring a stunning drawing room at the rear with original oak parquet flooring, and full height original French windows with shutters, opening on to the peaceful terrace. It has high ceilings throughout and offers some 960 sq ft of accommodation, with full independent gas fired central heating and ‘Farrow & Ball’ décor, adding to the enormous sense of period charm. The master bedroom is an excellent size featuring a period fireplace and oak flooring, the second a single bedroom with oak flooring. The long entrance hall has a dining area adjacent to the kitchen, which has been finished in a period style with built-in appliances. Another charming feature is the small, yet quirky library area, reached via a metal staircase which originally led up to the communal entrance hall. Again, the bathroom has been superbly fitted with a white period style suite including a cast iron roll top bath and white brick style tiled walls.
The property is located in the far south-western corner of the heath, within only some 300 metres of the Docklands Light Railway and mainline station, and approximately one mile from Blackheath Village. Granville Park has become one of the most desirable tree-line turnings in the area, owing to its attractive variety of Victorian housing and its close proximity to the amenities at Lewisham Town Centre.
