A fantastic opportunity to buy an extended Span House designed by Eric Lyons

These houses rarely come onto the market and you will find no better than this one which has been extended and extensively refurbished by the current owners who hired renowned architect Jo Townsend who has changed the internal layout of the property. The property offers an ideal family home with ample living space. The property comprises: Three bedrooms, family bathroom with bath and walk in shower, open-plan living/kitchen/diner, study, downstairs toilet & ample storage. To the outside is an enclosed garden with mature shrubs, patio area. The property also has a garage.

The Architect

Architect Eric Lyons collaborated closely with Span Developments in the 1950s and '60s to bring the concept of international modernism to the masses. Lyons began his career working under Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius and fused the fundamental concepts of Gropius and Le Corbusier with the British vernacular to create efficient, bright, practical homes with an inherent focus on creating strong communities. As such, although Span Housing is plentiful in the area, it comes to the market infrequently – especially T15 homes.

The Area

The Cator Estate is made up of 282 acres of private roads and features architectural jewels from all ages; from classical villas built at its inception in the late Georgian period, to the modernism of Lyons's Span Housing. Graham Morrison of Allies & Morrison Architects, who bought a Span House in the early 1980s, describes the joy of living on the Cator Estate: “I find it hard to imagine a more pleasant and safe place, so close to the city, in which to bring up young children. A shared garden made the making of friends easy and a sensible management structure helped to ensure the maintenance of not only the buildings and gardens but also the aims of the community.”

Blackheath Village is under a ten-minute walk from Brooklands Park and is renowned for its community spirit, a plethora of thriving independent shops and eateries and its much-loved weekly farmers' market. The house is a five-minute walk to Brooklands Primary School, one of the best primary schools in the Borough of Greenwich and OFSTED-rated “outstanding”.

Blackheath mainline railway station is approximately a seven-minute walk away, and is one stop from the Docklands Light Railway for easy access to both the Docklands and the City. Trains from Blackheath to London Bridge take approximately 10 minutes, approximately 25 minutes to Victoria, approximately 22 minutes to Charing Cross and Cannon Street in approximately 20 minutes.
