Detached House - Bickley
9 Bedroom Detached house - Bickley
A magnificent "Arts and Crafts" property set in 3/4 acre with 9 Bedrooms.
If you're making the leap to the suburbs, or simply upscaling your life with that well earned move to one of the biggest properties you can find, the major portion of this handsome, Grade two listed, "Arts and Crafts" house in leafy Bickley, sitting in grounds of approx 3/4 acre, should sit squarely at the top of the viewing list.
The nice thing about this house is, it's missable, literally. It maybe huge but as you push on down the road, the dense but well kept greenery that spans the perimeter does a fabulous job of keeping the house supremely private. The secure private gates at either entrance finish the job nicely.
The well preserved, imposing front door is the first indication of the tasteful interior that awaits. Purists with a penchant for sculpted wood panelling, grand, ballroom like rooms, teamed up with generously high ceilings will not be disappointed but tech junkies looking for slick modern kitchens will be delighted to know that this room, plus the utility area are a thoroughly modern affair, stuffed with high end appliances and topped off by something very bespoke in the cupboard and work top dept.
Overall there's up to nine bedrooms to play with, equally spread across the top two of the three floors the building has to offer.
The current owners originally acquired it as flats and converted back to one dwelling but given the flexibility of the accommodation and the useable stair cases at each end of the building still very much in place, it would be very easy to re-instate some private, self contained space for younger and older relatives or au-pair accommodation.
There are a further six reception rooms and five bathrooms at your disposal, many of which retain some wonderful original features.
Once you've worked out the maze of rooms and floors, it will be time to head out to explore the local scene. Bickley, Chislehurst and its surrounding areas have some of the best, laid back pubs, restaurants and bars to enjoy in the evenings plus a myriad of the obligatory coffee shops.
There are also some fantastic green walks and cycling routes to enjoy, something the Borough of Bromley has a particular reputation for.
The most local station is Chislehurst, just a few mins by foot and services London Bridge, Cannon Street and Charing Cross. For the more internationally bound, City and Gatwick airports are about 45 mins away. For the real high rollers, Biggin Hill is about 10 mins in a car.
