Property description

This recently-refurbished two-bedroom apartment is superbly located on the edge of Greenwich Park and forms part of the Vanbrugh Park Estate, a lesser-known design by the renowned architects Chamberlin, Powell & Bon.

Much like the architect’s more celebrated projects – the Barbican and Golden Lane – there are a variety of housing types at Vanbrugh Park. It is comparatively low rise; an elegant eight-storey tower is surrounded by rows of apartments and houses that sit within communal gardens. The second major housing project by architects (completed in 1962), Vanbrugh Park bears the recognisable hallmarks of their design with lovely large wood-framed windows, purposeful use of light, and meticulous approach to community living. The perpendicular layout of the terraces creates communal squares and spaces, a key function of the design.

This apartment is reached via a communal walkway that functions well as a sun terrace, as it sits at the end of the row. A neat original porch leads inside, to the living / dining area. The original design for these apartments allows for a hatch to the kitchen. The living spaces face south, and as with their earlier projects, the architects ensured large windows fill the rooms with natural light.

At the rear of the apartment are two bedrooms and a family bathroom. Both the kitchen and bathroom have high windows that draw light into the centre of the plan.

As Elain Harwood noted “Powell gave special attention to preserving trees and planting courtyards and play spaces, which survive… The scheme is a suburban adaptation of the Golden Lane ethos and is a fine example of [the architect’s] interest in place making”.

The location is a tranquil one, beside the beautiful Greenwich Park and amongst the large period villas for which the Greenwich / Blackheath area is renowned. Train stations at Maze Hill and Westcombe Park are a 10 minute walk away, while Blackheath station and Cutty Sark DLR are all within a 20 minute walk. The area is renowned for its outstanding schools, open spaces (the heath itself) and excellent local shops and restaurants.
