Much to appreciate here too. This is on the much-loved Cator Estate in Blackheath, a T15 property dating back to 1964 and a slightly extended example offering around 1060 sq. ft. of internal space.

The T15 itself is a larger property, offering around a quarter more floorspace than the standard terraced on the Span estate, as well as a wider garden. According to the agent, T15 properties rarely hit the market.
