Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This three-bedroom end of terrace house is located on the edge of Greenwich Park and forms part of the Vanbrugh Park Estate, a small housing development built in 1962 and designed by the renowned architects Chamberlin, Powell & Bon.

The ground floor is open plan, with the space easily defined into, living, eating and cooking areas plus doors giving access into the courtyard garden. On the first floor are the 3 bedrooms and bathroom. The house does need some updating and is a great opportunity to update to your own taste and specification.

Like in all the houses on the estate, there is a fireplace with space for a solid-fuel stove incorporated into a heatsink designed as part of the staircase. The flue continues up through the stairwell, a very striking feature, which originally provided effective heating system.

Similar to the more celebrated estates by Chamberlin, Powell & Bon - the Barbican and Golden Lane - there are a variety of housing types at Vanbrugh Park. The scheme was commissioned by the Borough of Greenwich, whose vision sought a mixture of dwellings. As a result, the estate comprises an elegant eight-storey block containing the majority of the estate's flats, low-rise terraces of houses and flats, and a few single-storey flats arranged over garages.

The perpendicular layout of the terraces creates communal squares and spaces, a key function of the design. As discussed in a book by Robert Maxwell, 'New British Architecture', "The greater part of the site is organised with two-storey blocks forming courts, and although an access road cuts through the middle of the layout, it is quiet and combines with the squares and walkways to provide an environment favouring the pedestrian. The main walkway penetrates the apartment block as if to underline the importance of the pedestrian system".

In Elain Harwood's book, 'Chamberlin, Powell & Bon', the author points out that "Powell gave special attention to preserving trees and planting courtyards and play spaces, which survive… The scheme is a suburban adaptation of the Golden Lane ethos and is a fine example of Chamberlin, Powell & Bon's interest in place making".

The location is a tranquil one, beside the beautiful Greenwich Park and amongst the large period villas for which the Greenwich / Blackheath area is renowned. Train stations at Blackheath, Maze Hill, Westcombe Park and Cutty Sark DLR are all within approximately 15 minutes' walk. The area is renowned for its outstanding schools, open spaces (the heath itself) and excellent local shops and restaurants.
