A very handsome and imposing period detached (8,584 sq ft) "country house" in London, affording an unusually high level of seclusion and privacy in this highly coveted zone 2 enclave.


The house is the former home of Sir Ernest Shackleton, where he wrote his highly acclaimed Heart of the Antarctic.

It stands in an unusually large plot and has extensive, well balanced accommodation over four floors, ideal for a large family and staff.

The ground floor reception space is some of the best we have seen, with a large formal drawing room to the front of the property, a vast kitchen / breakfast / family room to the rear and a further reception space; ideal as a dining room.

The lower ground floor has unusually high ceilings and views over / access to the fabulous garden.

A large room to the rear has previously been used as a billiard room and would be ideal as such again, albeit it is now ready to be put to a plethora of uses. There is also a good sized bedroom suite at this level, previously used as staff accommodation, which is conveniently close to the utility and service kitchen area.

A good sized wine cellar will also no doubt appeal to wine aficianados.

The property is very unusual in having three entrances to the front and these are also well served by three separate staircases; ideal for a large family and the hubble and bubble of family living. Furthermore, the house is also ideal for entertaining on a very grand scale.

The main entrance leads on to a vast formal reception hall and up to the expansive first floor: To the front of the house is a superb double bedroom suite and to the rear is the sumptuous principal bedroom, affording a large dressing room and beautifully appointed bathroom suite; there is also a pretty terrace, giving wonderful views over the garden, swimming pool and Putney Heath beyond, whilst also affording a high degree of seclusion and privacy.

To the left on entry is a large integral garage and covered passage ideal for storage and giving independent, secure access for gardeners and the like.

The rear garden is beautifully landscaped and the swimming pool is well located to the rear of the plot and this has an impressive, brick built pool house and also a separate plant room; there is also an electric secure cover to the pool, for peace of mind and ease of maintenance.

The house is set well back from the road and the imposing carriage driveway affords ample off-street parking.


Heathview Gardens is ideally located for the open expanses of Putney Heath, numerous transport links and is also perfectly placed for a wide range of excellent schools.

Square Footage: 8,584 sq ft
