Mottisfont Hall is an impressive 1860s detached Victorian Villa that sits within the ancient Royal grounds of Eltham Palace in a spectacular plot that measures just under an acre.

This impressive home has been lovingly restored and extended by the current architect owners; the accommodation now measures in excess of 14,000 sq ft, which incorporates the main house and a separate three bedroom cottage, which adds a further dimension to the opportunity.
The property sits behind a sweeping semi-circular carriage driveway with 'in & out' gates and is accessed via extensive period ornate cast iron gates, which makes a remarkable first impression.
The main house has a feeling of grandeur and enjoys superb proportions throughout; the current owners have cleverly restored the house, retaining an abundance of period features, including oak and walnut paneling, large ceiling cornices and ceiling roses, gallery like hallway spaces with original Victorian mosaic floors, parquet wood floors, unique orangery, sauna, snooker room detached three bedroom three en-suite cottage/coach house.

The accommodation is extensive and briefly comprises eight bedrooms which are complimented with five en-suites, a separate servant's stairway and entrance, five reception rooms, a gymnasium, a cinema room, a sauna and a snooker room.
The lower level is designed to offer the 'leisure floor,' and a 25 m-long underground swimming pool with a jacuzzi has been constructed and is awaiting completion.
The cottage is completely self-contained and is versatile in the way it can be utilized. It has the flexibility to be split into two apartments if needed.
The rear garden is a strong selling point and is predominantly laid to lawn and measures approximately 125 ft in depth. There are a number of mature trees and a large raised patio area accompanied by an extensive pond.

There is a large garage to the front of the house and off-street parking for an abundance of motor vehicles.
The current owners have utilized the uniqueness of the house, and it has generated its own revenue and been a popular destination within the high end short let market. It has also been featured in various TV productions, films, and advertising campaigns throughout the years.

Mottisfont Hall is ideally positioned equidistant between Eltham and Mottingham mainline railway stations which is a 25-minute journey to Charing Cross and a 17 minutes journey to London Bridge.
It is situated between the ancient Blackheath Golf Course to the South and Eltham Palace ground bordering the rear garden.
