Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 6
A truly magnificent six bedroom detached house of just under 6500 sq ft, set in a most prestigious and wide, tree lined road on the outskirts of the bustling Bromley town centre. This impressive example of an Arts and Crafts property occupies one of the largest plots in the heart of the highly desirable Sundridge Park area.

The stunning period property dates back to 1908 and was built by the renowned William Willett who was the instigator of daylight savings. This impressive home showcases a number of period architectural features including a pillared entrance porch with stunning curved windows and door, which is symptomatic of Mr Willett's design style.

The grand and imposing entrance hall has a welcoming open gas fireplace with built in original seating area and original, dramatic split oak staircase which leads to the upper floors.

The hall offers access to all the ground floor reception rooms. The double aspect Drawing Room with its period high ceilings provides a real sense of space and features an original fireplace which has been renovated.

The kitchen and breakfasting room is flooded with light from the bi-fold doors and provide a seamless transition to the patio and garden beyond. The kitchen area itself is fitted with a bespoke Smallbone kitchen, Sub-Zero integrated fridge freezer, De Dietrich induction hob, Miele combi oven and coffee machine, recently installed Neff ovens and built-in.

The Dining Room/Music Room is separated from the Games Room by a bespoke built in oak bar area. Both rooms are characterised by their sweeping ceilings and elegant coving with period glazed doors which lead directly out to the garden area beyond. Most of the rooms on the ground floor benefit from original ceiling lights, wooden flooring and integrated surround sound speakers. A feature of the Games Room is the Inglenook fireplace with built in cove seating.

A Boot Room and WC complete the accommodation on the ground floor.

Moving up the sweeping staircase to the first floor is the landing which is flooded with natural light from a central atrium roof light.

On this floor the accommodation was all recently refurbished and comprises five spacious and attractive double bedrooms. The principle suite is fitted with Chambers wardrobes and features a bay window with an aspect over the grounds to the rear. A dressing room leads through to the en-suite which was also fitted by Chambers and comprises walk in shower, claw footed freestanding bath and Amtico flooring. Bedroom two is double aspect and benefits from Chambers built in wardrobes. This bedroom has access to a stunning Jack and Jill bathroom with a feature freestanding bath, built-in Chambers bathroom furniture and recently fitted Amtico flooring.

There are a further three good sized double bedrooms to this floor, one with en-suite shower room and a family bathroom.

Perhaps most surprising of all is the upper floor which has been converted to an annexe during the current owners tenure to an incredibly high specification and standard. The original circular windows in the eaves are a real feature of this renovation.

The Amtico flooring and interesting shaped ceiling space gives a contemporary loft feel to the accommodation. Features include Velux windows with electric blinds, kitchenette with integrated appliances including dishwasher and washing machine, separate combi boiler, Fired Earth tiles and sanitary ware, Aqualisa walk in shower with 'one touch' temperature gauge. This floor's crowning glory is accessed through the glazed door which leads to a spacious and secluded roof terrace which is fully decked and provides vistas over the nearby golf course across to Canary Wharf and the City beyond. The current owners have been known to enjoy family movie nights here on warm summer evenings.

All in all, this exceptional home combines an elegant, light, spacious interior design with timeless original features. The mature and secluded south facing landscaped garden acts as a wonderful backdrop to the beautiful and sought after property.

The extensive grounds are quite unusual for a property so conveniently located. Set on a plot of around two thirds of an acre the features externally include outdoor pool, heated by an economical heat exchange heater, hot tub/spa, pool room and further potential for the reintroduction of a tennis court.

The triple garage could easily be extended or converted subject to any required consents and includes an electric car charging point.

A note from partner, Jeremy de Maid, "I am fortunate to have the privilege of visiting many of the borough's finest homes in the most sought after roads, yet still now after over 30 years, a property has the ability to surprise and amaze with its space and grandeur. It is truly a hidden gem. This is a rare chance to purchase a home on one of Bromley's larger plots a stone's throw from a championship golf course, a walk from a vibrant town centre with all the amenities it has to offer and all a short commute from the trappings of the City."
