We have featured a number of Span Houses in the past, but this 1960s Eric Lyons-designed Span House on the Cator Estate, Blackheath, London SW3 is something a little different.
Its current owner, an architect by trade, has extended it. Not some ugly extension on the top (or the dreaded conservatory). No, the extension on this T7 house is an extra floor underneath the existing property, maintaining the integrity of the upper floors and fitting in with that original design.
Aside from that, this is a renovated Span house within a sought-after location, overlooking the larger of the open spaces as well as offering direct car access at the rear, plus a garage ‘en-block’.
That refurbished property now offers 1,400sq. ft. of living space, with a ground floor composed of an open-plan living room, dining room and kitchen, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows front and back. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, the front bedroom overlooking the communal gardens and the rear bedrooms looking out onto the private gardens beyond. There is also a family bathroom and an additional shower room.
Of course, you also have the basement level, which is currently laid out as a library study area, a master-bedroom / lounge space, a ‘generous’ dressing room and an en-suite shower room. Outside, there’s also an enclosed garden with natural stone paving, a lawn and landscaped boarders.
The photos tell more of the story and there are many more on the agent’s site. The asking price is £749,750.
