North Several Orchard Drive SE3


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
This is a striking, four bedroom modernist house which forms part of an award-winning heath-side development, designed by acclaimed architect Royston Summers in the late 1960s.

North Several properties rarely come onto market and consist of seven houses in two terraces, built to the highest of standards for a collective of private individuals, including the architect himself. The design, orientation and the landscaping of North Several allows the house to sit perfectly in its heath-side environment.

Arranged over three storeys, and with floor-to-ceiling windows with fabulous views over the heath towards Blackheath Village and St Michaels church, this particular house is one of the best examples of the original design; it retains many of the original features and forms part of the smaller terrace of two semi-detached houses at the entrance to the development.

The top floor has four generous bedrooms and the main bathroom all of which open onto the landing via full-height doors that are a feature throughout the house, two of the four bedrooms enjoy heath views and all benefit from the original Maple panelling. The main bathroom has been recently re-modelled to a high specification.

The dual-aspect main living space is positioned on the first floor, maximising the light and views across the heath and beyond. The L-shaped room accommodates a large, bright reception room and a dining area with access to a balcony with views towards Canary Wharf. The kitchen is separated from the main room and is fitted with attractive wall and base units, as well as a well positioned breakfast bar all fitted in a style that compliments the modernist architecture.

The main entrance into the spacious lobby area features the house's beautiful maple staircase which connects the entire house. The entrance lobby connects to the separated WC, the utility area and integrated garage.

Outside at the rear, there is a leafy, well-tended and beautifully planted communal garden, which expands to the boundaries of the development and provides a lovely peaceful setting.

North Several is superbly located on the south-west side of Blackheath, at the edge of Blackheath Villlage. Blackheath is one of London's most popular and attractive residential areas and has a great selection of shops, restaurants and pubs. Greenwich Park, part of the Greenwich World Heritage Site, is a short stroll across the heath, which itself is part of the protected World Heritage Buffer Zone. The World Heritage site extends through Greenwich Park and down to the River Thames, an area rich in history and outstanding beauty.

Blackheath station runs direct services to London Bridge, Cannon Street, Victoria, Charing Cross and Waterloo East (with journey times of approximately 15-25 minutes). A DLR service to Canary Wharf and Bank, taking approximately 15 minutes and 27 minutes respectively, runs from nearby Lewisham.
