One of Chislehurst's finest homes of historical and architectural significance. Built for the Freese family in 1868 and occupied by them for over 60 years now lovingly refurbished by the current owners to make a fantastic 21st Century home retaining many character features.
Built from distinctive hexagonal hollow pots, filled with granite and flint, this unusual locally listed house has a style of its own. In fact, this style of block work can only be found as a wall at one other site locally. The house has a grand but welcoming feel, making it an ideal family home.
The current owners have refurbished and renovated the house extensively. Ever mindful of the unique character of the house, they have done this with a sympathetic eye. It is not only the interior of the property which has been attended to, the fabric of the building has also received the same loving care and attention. For example, the roof has been recovered and bespoke wooden double glazed windows installed.
Features worthy of note are the beautiful and large kitchen/dining room which runs from the front to the back of the house, fitted with a range of quality German units with integral appliances and underfloor heating and many original features including ornate cornicing and Victorian fireplaces..
The sunny grounds are extensive and are just under an acre. Landscaped into distinctive terraced areas, the large lawn and decking areas are surrounded by a varied range of trees and shrubs, such that you could be forgiven for thinking you were in a National Trust garden. From the top of the garden, extensive views over the church opposite and the leafy valley beyond can be seen.
A carriageway drive provides ample parking and access to the detached double garage.
The location is excellent being in a sought after road within a few minutes walk from the local shops at Lower Camden. Chislehurst Common, cricket ground and golf club are nearby and Chislehurst station is just 0.6 of a mile away.
Council Tax:- London Borough of Bromley, Band H, £3,383.04
