Time to move

8th October 2012 Print

It’s time to hang up your single lifestyle in the City and move to a village – a London village. That doesn’t mean you have to wave goodbye to your trendy, cosmopolitan life though. Blackheath is a hip, urban community just 15 minutes by train from London Bridge, so it is the ideal location. The ideal house comes courtesy of Millwood Designer Homes – with two large five-bed properties at Liskeard Villas.

Blackheath is the natural step from City to country, from single to family life, finding a perfect blend somewhere in the middle. It has a buzzing centre with boutique shops, trendy bars and restaurants, but at the same time it still maintains a village feel with plenty of open spaces and parks, including the magnificent heath, for which it is most famous. Liskeard Villas is close to both the heath and the village, giving you a prime location.

Moving out from the City, one thing you can be guaranteed is that you get a whole lot more for your money. Set over an impressive four floors, both homes will give you plenty of room to grow and adapt over the years.

The magnificent kitchen on the lower ground floor is both stylish and practical, with bespoke cabinets, sleek granite worktops, high-end fitted appliances and a central workstation. Open-plan, it leads onto a separate breakfast area and garden room, both with large bi-fold doors onto the landscaped rear garden. For added convenience, there is also a separate utility room, cloakroom, cellar and integral garage.

The beautiful stone fireplace is the centrepiece of the spacious drawing room on the ground floor, whilst the Juliet balcony provides views of the garden below, which is exceptionally large compared with other homes in the area. The butler’s pantry with wine cooler and dumb waiter next to the dining room won’t fail to impress guests.

There is also plenty of space if they stay the night, with five large bedrooms – two of which are en suite – a family bathroom and a separate cloakroom, all set out over the top two floors of the house. In addition to a large en-suite bathroom, the master bedroom also features a separate dressing room.

Says Sales Director Philip Brown: “Liskeard Villas is the perfect next step for anyone looking to move on from their single lifestyle, without being too far away from the City. With so much space, it could be your forever home in the forever location. Once you move here you won’t ever want to leave, and with Liskeard Villas you won’t ever have to!”

The five-bed houses are priced from £1.895 million. The show home is open Friday to Monday inclusive between 11am and 5pm. For further information, visit
