There isn’t a lot we don’t like about this Ansham-designed contemporary courtyard house in London SE23. Except perhaps the fact that we can’t afford it.
A very recent build we would presume, the property is described as ‘a rare example of a courtyard house in the capital, one that offers floor to celling glazing in almost all of the rooms, in turn creating a bright and open contemporary living space.
Some lovely detailing too, including the stunning spiral staircase that leads to the pavilion room and the wooden slats (if that is the right word) which break up the white exterior. Outside of that, it’s very much a blank canvas, just waiting for you to move in and make it home.
If you are considering this place, you will no doubt want to know about the space within. Well, once through the front door you’ll find a ‘generously sized’ hallway with glazing onto the courtyard, opening onto the kitchen area with utility and an open plan living and dining room, which in turn has that spiral staircase to the pavilion room, which is essentially a study or fifth bedroom.
If you are wondering about the rest of the places to rest your head, you will find those in the bedroom wing along another glazed corridor. There are three bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms and a third with en-suite bathroom. More stairs lead to a second pavilion room, that one being the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
As for outside, you have obviously spotted the courtyard, which is joined by gardens landscaped by garden designer Stephen Woodhams, winner of a Gold Medal at the Chelsea Flower Show no less.
It is ready and waiting if you have £2,000,000 to spare.
