Occupying a plot of approximately 0.8 of an acre on one of Beckenham’s premium roads is this exceptional Arts & Crafts family residence.

Built circa 1919 this outstanding property has, with the exception of the outside walls, been completely re-built to an impeccable standard by the current owners. The attention to detail is very apparent and specialists have been used from far and wide for things such as, to match original bricks and tiles, to design and fit bespoke joinery and to fit oak flooring as one continuous piece for optimum effect.

One of the widest plots on the road ‘Woodcote’ is perfectly screened by manicured hedges, accessed by automated timber gates at either side and retains some charming original features such as the porch and front entrance door. Once inside this home the quality of the finish is instantly recognisable as is the carefully and intelligently designed layout and living space. The accommodation flows perfectly from the welcoming entrance hall through to the fully equipped open plan kitchen/diner with central island, a mixture of stone and Iroko wood worktops, cream handmade units all complimented by Miele appliances, as is the utility room just off the kitchen. The same craftsmen designed and fitted the three charming half orangeries with fold back doors off the three back reception rooms making the most of the views over the beautiful rear garden. Furthermore there is a fourth reception room fitted as a formal drawing room with stunning Chesney’s working fireplace, a playroom, downstairs WC and garages at either end of the property with secure direct access into the house.

The first floor includes five luxurious bedroom suites four with their own en suite facilities and a family bathroom, all of which are furnished with Villeroy and Boch bathroom suites, Hansgrohe taps and Porcelanosa tiling. The master bedroom includes a separate dressing area and there are fitted wardrobes in another.

The rear garden is a wonderful feature of this home and offers numerous attractive features including a fantastic social area that links with the half orangeries, potential for a pool or the reinstatement of a tennis court. The garden has been beautifully landscaped and measures approximately 225 X 125 and is a truly magnificent spectacle considering the urban location.

Technically the house has been wired with Cat 5 cabling throughout offers both Virgin and Sky media systems, is alarmed, enjoys underfloor heating to tiled areas and is extensively insulated both by cavity wall and substantial underfloor insulation. Other benefits include electronic plantation blinds, ample eaves storage and potential to convert the large loft space into two further bedrooms and bathrooms (STPP).
