Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Share of Freehold

A rare opportunity to purchase an immaculate three-bedroom ‘Span’ apartment, with south-facing rear glazing and direct access to lawn. Located on the sought-after Cator Estate in Blackheath, the apartment block was designed by the renowned architect Eric Lyons and built by the company Span in the late 1950s. It can be found on The Hall, a quiet and secluded location set within beautifully maintained communal gardens. Internal accommodation extends to approximately 1,013 sq ft.

The apartment has been comprehensively renovated retaining a number of original features such as single-reeded glazed doors, door and window handles, and an original tiled fireplace. The kitchen is bespoke handmade with wood-block and granite worktops, and has Siemens appliances. All three bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and overlook the gardens. Through floor-to-ceiling glazed double doors there is direct access to a secluded communal south-facing lawn.

Eric Lyons’s Span developments are renowned for their space and light. He paid great attention to the surrounding landscape, designing and building houses around existing splendid, mature trees and creating communal areas that encourage residents to mix. Indeed, Graham Morrison of Allies & Morrison Architects, who bought a Span house in Blackheath in the early 1980s, describes the joy of living on the Cator Estate: “I find it hard to imagine a more pleasant and safe place, so close to the city, in which to bring up young children. A shared garden made the making of friends easy and a sensible management structure helped to ensure the maintenance of not only the buildings and gardens, but also the aims of the community.”

The apartment is very close to Brooklands Primary School, which is one of the best primary schools in the Borough of Greenwich and is described as ‘outstanding’ by OFSTED. Places are awarded according to your home’s proximity to the school. The property is approximately seven minutes’ walk from Blackheath mainline railway station, which is one stop from the Docklands Light Railway, with easy access to both the Docklands and City. Trains from Blackheath to London Bridge take approximately 10 minutes, and approximately 25 minutes to Victoria. Blackheath offers a good selection of restaurants, shops and services as well as the large green space of the heath.
