Situated at the rear ground floor of an imposing Victorian mansion in Honor Oak Park, this unique one-bedroom maisonette has been given a back-to-the-brick remodel by the current owner, turning it into an airy and design-led open plan space. It is truly spoiled for outside space with a large private walled garden, six metre long sun terrace, and direct access to one of London’s rare private parks. A short stroll brings you to the area’s many cafes, restaurants and bars, creating a marked contrast to the secluded feel of the home.

The Tour

The private entrance can be found by first passing through the sheltered walled garden, opening into a sizable porch with plenty of room for bikes.

The porch opens into dramatic 3.5m ceilings with quality engineered oak underfoot. This home is characterised by its volume and cleverly zoned spaces. Layouts have been approached with great care and the large open-plan space feels like a series of rooms without walls.

At its heart is the beautifully symmetrical kitchen, contrasting solid oak worktops with Carrara quartz. The central island is perfectly positioned to connect with both the dining and lounge areas which make this home the perfect entertaining space.

At the very back of the plan is the bathroom, a smart and modern space with floor to ceiling tiling and high-quality fixtures and fittings.

A staircase off the centre of the room ascends to the bright and spacious bedroom. From here French doors lead out onto the large south-facing terrace that soaks up uninterrupted morning to evening sun, and gives stunning views over the private park and across the local area.

This genuinely one-of-a-kind property comes with the opportunity for further improvement; planning permission granted to extend into the second double bedroom and ensuite.

The Private Park

Brockley Hill Park is completely unique in London and accessible only from the gardens of the roads that surround it. The tight knit community enjoy a recently refurbished tennis court, a community vegetable garden, a firepit on top of the many mature trees. The park committee organises many events throughout the year including fireworks, tennis tournaments, bring and share BBQs and performances from local orchestras.

The Area

Duncombe Hill is just an 8 minute walk from Honor Oak Park with short and regular connections to London Bridge (10-15 mins) as well as London Overground through Canada Water, Shoreditch and on to Highbury and Islington.

On the way to the station, you pass through Honor Oak high street which has exploded over the last few years with cafes, restaurants, bars, delis and independent restaurants, with a new boutique wine shop opening soon.

A short walk in the other direction takes you to Forest Hill where you’ll find the Horniman Museum, fantastic green spaces and plenty more independent eateries and businesses.
