Property description

A magnificent wing of this Grade I listed Castle, built in 1718 by Sir John Vanbrugh as his home residence, who is also well known for building Blenheim Palace. In modern times, the building was a school until 1975, run by the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund for the sons of RAF personnel killed in service; it was restored by the Blackheath preservation Trust in 1977.

Built within 2.5 acres of stunning communal grounds, this four storey property briefly comprises four bedrooms, a lovely kitchen, two bathrooms, a stunning 26ft reception room and a 27ft roof terrace with outstanding and far reaching views across London. There is also an underground private annex within the grounds, built below a garden folly. Added benefits include a large cellar and two off street parking spaces.

The property is in a wonderful location on the cusp of Greenwich and Blackheath, adjacent to the Royal Park and Observatory, as well as only a short walk to Maze Hill mainline rail. Greenwich town centre, with its fine array of Restaurants, shops and Riverboat service is also close by.
