Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Before Tate Modern and even before Tate Britain, the very first Tate Gallery was in Streatham. Sir Henry Tate purchased this stunning piece of land in 1874 when it was known at the time as Park Hill, where he started growing his collection of British art.


Tate lived here for 25 years, in that time making many vast, wonderful and beautiful alterations throughout, unintentionally turning it into the peaceful and private landscape that it is today.


Redevelopment of the gallery itself and surrounding houses began in 1999, finishing with 52 gorgeous homes each showing off the characteristics of Tate's love of art, while ensuring a fine standard internally for each new home built.


Unique Property Company are privileged to have the opportunity to introduce to you a 4 bedroom, 2 reception home spanning across 3 floors, offering in excess of 1500 Sq. Ft of living space, overlooking an apple orchard, with its very own private outdoor space to the rear also.


Entering this home, you instantly feel relaxed. Immediately to your left is the study, which looks out over the vast, quiet and pretty landscape on which this home sits. Through the hallway and past the stairs opens up into the large kitchen/dining area which is equally peaceful, looking onto the private garden.


Onto the first floor of this home and into the bedroom en suite, perhaps ideal as a guest room, as it is next to the reception room that boasts three balconies, again looking over the 6 acres of green space only usable by the residents of Henry Tate Mews- only this time, the views begin to appear, as you're higher up and certain landmarks begin to appear on the horizon!


Onto the third floor of this home and into either of the two single bedrooms with built in storage all around, past the family bathroom and across the hallway into the other large double bedroom en suite, the views get even better!


The six acres of private parkland contain several surprises: a 25ft octagonal folly (the only one in south London); a Garden of Gethsemane grotto, complete with a statue of the crucified Christ; and a pond, which, it is claimed, is the largest body of water in Streatham!


No need to be concerned about good transport links, as there are four rail stations within walking distance - Streatham, Streatham Common, Streatham Hill and West Norwood - and many bus service routes in the area too.
