The public have been given the chance to glimpse inside one of the most unique and historic houses in Bexley after a mansion set within the grounds of Danson Park was listed on the market.

West Lodge, a four bedroom detached house, is priced as the most expensive home ever listed in DA16, and offers some fascinating style and decor.

This unusual property also offers a "completely unique location" within the grounds of Danson Park in the heart of Welling, and incredibly comes with its very own postcode.

Originally the Gatekeeper's House, built in the early 1800s within the boundaries of the borough's largest park, the property was demolished and rebuilt in the same spot in 1948.

It has since been extended by its current owners to "now form one of the largest detached family homes in DA16," say Danson Property Services who have listed the property.

On Zoopla, the house listing says it is located on Danson Lane inside Danson Park, and due to the unique location and presentation of the home, the price is withheld for 'serious buyers only'.

But photos show West Lodge's splendid style.

The house consists of an extended kitchen and dining area which come with a large skylight, patio doors.

The house also includes a utility area, upstairs bedrooms, a large walk-in wardrobe, family bathroom and an additional en-suite to a master bedroom.

There are also two separate private garden areas, as well as off-street parking.

Nearby Welling High Street offers a variety of shops and other amenities, as well as the excellent schools of Danson Primary and Bexley Grammar being within a few hundred yards walk.

This detached freehold property is far from the usual house in Bexley, and would certainly offer some privacy.

Whilst the price is listed as 'upon application', the house is listed with other £1 million pound houses within Bexley. There are more photos in the gallery above.
