About the property

The Property: Decimus Burton became a major 19th-century architect, designing buildings in and around Regent’s Park, as well as the Wellington Arch, Hyde Park Screen and the Palm and Temperate Houses at Kew. He was responsible for the layout of London Zoo, Hyde Park and Kew Gardens and built country villas in both classical and gothic styles. Having leased a triangle of land bounded by Mercatoria, St John’s Church, Maze Hill and Kenilworth Road, The Cottage (now St Leonards Lodge), was built by Decimus Burton in 1845 for his own use, and later enlarged by a subsequent owner. Burton lived here for many years in this impressive Grade II listed three-storey house, later turned into several apartments. With its asymmetrical design and long impressive driveway, the property has no end of beautiful features. From its centrepiece of a round-headed front door with stone architraves, the property benefits from an original stained glass window, beautiful wooden panelling, stunning wooden flooring, original fireplaces, high ceilings and original cornice and coving. The property has exclusive use of the driveway directly in front of the property, with room for four vehicles and its own private garage to the rear of the property. Featuring three bedrooms, the grade 2 listed apartment retains all the grandeur of its original entrance hall, now the stunning hallway and dining room. The substantial living room benefits from double doors, which lead out onto a private patio and garden, which provides views down through Maze Hill to the English Channel. The property would benefit from a conversion to a modern central heating system. Lease: 999 years from 1973 Service cest.fixedharges £50 Per month https://what3words.com/blues.quest.fixed Read more
