Built in the late 19th century, Randalls was designed by the President of the Royal Institute of British Architects, Ernst Newton and was featured in his 1890 "Book of Houses". Set behind wrought iron gates, this locally listed house boasts many distinctive features as well as an enchanting south facing garden. This generational home sits within a private road only a short walk from Chislehurst high street.
The flat garden of some 111 is remarkable and planted with mature trees, shrubs and hedging, and there is a sauna room. A flag stone patio spreads across the full 65 width at the back of the house and this opens to a large expanse of grass which then leads to another patio area with stone features. This makes a perfect spot to sit and look back on this aesthetically pleasing period house of immense character where even the double garage has a bay window and double doors to the garden, in keeping with the remainder of the house.
Internally you wont be disappointed with the many period features and grand rooms which make this a noteworthy home.
Entry is into a lobby area (with guest cloakroom and original dark wood herringbone floor) then via double doors into a reception hall where there is a welcoming fireplace, splendid staircase and wide plank wooden floor with light pouring in from the large window on the stair well. Both reception rooms which sit to the rear of the house are accessed from here.
The large sitting room (380+ sq ft) has a glorious detailed ceiling, focal point fireplace and a beautiful bay with doors to the garden. The dining room also has a central fireplace and wide bay overlooking the garden, and the room features an intricate ceiling rose.
In the sizeable kitchen to the front you will find a range of oak wall and floor units, a central island, granite surfaces, large format floor tiles, ample space for a kitchen table and chairs, a walk-in pantry and door to the outside.
Four of the six bedrooms are reached on the first floor via a spacious landing with striking original wide plank floor boards with the final two bedrooms on the second floor.
The principal suite features an impressive en-suite set up with corner shower, central wall with large floating glass basin shelf, feature tiling and a bank of wardrobes behind for floor to ceiling hanging and storage space. Bedroom two has a large bay window overlooking the rear garden and a door to bedroom four, so this could also be used for example as a nursery or dressing room (also accessed from the landing). There are two further en-suites, a family bathroom, airing cupboard and fitted wardrobes to bedrooms three and five, plus a storage room off bedroom six.
