Tenure: FreeholdDesigned and built in 1931 by a member of the then renowned David Grieg's grocers family, using craftsmen working at Chequers (the Prime Minister's country residence) and on the restoration of St Paul's Cathedral, Normanhurst is a handsome and imposing manorial style residence, being one of the first properties built on Bishops Walk and is coming to the market for only the third time since its construction.
With substantial accommodation arranged over two floors, the house retains much of its original character and displays many period features. Seasoned oak with its warm tones, has been used to great effect, panelling main reception rooms and providing flooring throughout the ground floor. The magnificent staircase has an ecclesiastical style as it was created from oak that was also being used for pews at St Paul's Cathedral, which perfectly complements the magnificent Gothic style leaded light bay window overlooking the rear garden. Windows are the original leaded lights with oak sills, internal doors are panelled and there are a number of fireplaces of various designs.
Reception rooms are of grand proportions and there are bi folding oak doors between the Drawing and Sitting Rooms creating a very large entertaining space. There is a large Kitchen/Breakfast Room with various domestic offices and a secondary staircase. The first floor has a spacious, half panelled Landing and large bedrooms. The Master Suite has a triple aspect and connects to a bathroom and a further bed/dressing room. In total at present there are seven bedrooms and three bathrooms.
