Charles Quennell was known for designing some of the finest examples of Arts & Crafts detached homes in the local area and this particular house was his own home built around 1904/5. The owners have updated the house during their 27 year tenure to create a wonderful home that balances the best of both worlds, retaining the character and charm along with the comforts of modern day living.

Situated in one of the area's most sought after roads, the house is perfectly placed on a generous plot, with a fine view back down Denbridge Road. Chislehurst Station is less than half a mile as are the local shops at Lower Camden.

The gardens are just as much a feature of this wonderful home, with a west facing rear garden which has been landscaped by the owners to create a number of separate areas, including a vegetable garden and heated outdoor swimming pool and pool house.

There is a wealth of period features throughout the house, which can only be fully appreciated upon visiting. The entrance hall with its fireplace and beautiful staircase sets the tone for the rest of the house. There are 3 principle reception rooms and a charming conservatory of the main reception room. The kitchen/dining room is a wonderful large space with the kitchen having been refitted by Chambers Furniture. There is a wine cellar beneath the dining area. The utility room has a pantry, gardeners W/C and leads into a greenhouse.

On the first floor, the wonderful galleried landing gives access to three bedrooms, office and family bathroom. There is then a door leading into what could be used as an annexe with sitting room and two bedrooms each with bathrooms.

On the top floor there is a large bedroom with en-suite and additional storage rooms. It's the perfect house to play hide and seek with all its rooms and storage cupboards.

There is an integral tandem garage and further garage with two storage rooms to the other side of the plot.
