is Grade II listed for its special architectural and historical interest and was originally the lodge to Kelsey Manor. This Late Victorian Tudor Revival Lodge was built in 1864 and shows aspects of the Tudor period (1485 to 1603) much admired by the Victorians.
The half-timbered decorative brick infill panels and carved bargeboards on three elevations add to the charm of the property along with three gables including the protruding front gable with carved porch beneath, which serves as the main entrance. The bay window to the sitting room has beautiful leaded lights with stained glass panes and after 156 years is still to be admired for the exceptional craftsmanship.
Kelsey Lodge is a unique property of architectural merit in Beckenham. A small front garden with picket fencing leads to the main entrance door, under the covered porch, opening to a lobby with doors on either side to the two reception rooms having good ceiling height of 2.44m/8ft.
