A newly renovated child friendly 1960's home. Having small children but being interested in modern design, we have tried to balence style with practicality.
Upon entering our home you will be greeted by polished wooden floor which extends from the entrance hall through the lounge and into the dining room.
The new white and stainless steel fitted kitchen is a cooks delight - 5 ring hob with wok burner, stainless steel hood and double oven. There is also a microwave, large stainless steel fridge, seperate wine fridge, and of course a dishwasher, washing machine and seperate tumble dryer. The kitchen also features a large breakfast bar, which seperates it from the dining area. In the dining area is a large extendable oak table seating 6-8 comfortably. Along the far side of the dining area is a small conservatory giving a lovely view of our garden, and housing a the childrens toys. There is some garden furniture (large table, 4 chairs and parasol for the summer). The garden gets sun mid-late afternoon - perfect for an end of day gin and tonic cathing the last of the days rays.
The dining area also leads through to the lounge - with a large retro style leather corner sofa, wall mounted flate screen tv and DVD player/recorder. (the lounge is designed for relaxing in).
Upstairs are the bathroom and three bedrooms, although the small bedroom has been turned into a study complete with pc/printer/desk etc - n.b. we do have wireless broadband for flexible surfing).
The master bedroom has a kingsize bed and the second bedroom has bunk beds. The all-white bathroom has a jacuzzi bath with overhead shower.
Blackheath Village is one of only three villages in the london area. Having lived all over London I have returned to Blackheath to raise my family as it is one of londons prettiest and more desirable locations, and there are tonnes of activities for kids of all ages.
One of Blackheaths most appealing features is the vast open heath - popular with kite flyers, footballers and walkers. It takes about 15 minutes walk from Blackheath over the heath to the beautiful royal Greenwich Park, with the observatory, planitarium and stunning views over london.
Both Blackheath and Greenwich are packed with lively cafes, restaurants, bars and pubs. With excellent eating out food options to suit every taste and budget.
Blackheath is home to Blackheath concert halls, a charmingly renovated Vicotorian music venue, where famous artists ranging from classical to pop through to jazzand reggae, play every weekend.
In Greenwich there are 2 cinemas the prestgious arthouse 'Picturehouse' and the Odean 12 screen multiplex.
You can walk to the Cutty Sark, Rangers House, and the national maritime museum from our house.
For shopaholics and market lovers - blackheath has a great selection of boutiques and the greenwich antiques and flea market is world renowned. There is also a fabulous organic farmers market on sundays.
Once you've done all that - you can hop on a train and induge in all the amazing experiences that london has to offer. Our house is 5 minutes walk from Blackheath railway station (which is 20 minutes into the heart of the westend).
We're a young family, my husband and I both work in the media and we've two delightful boys both under 5.
We love being active and also love relaxing. A perfect day for us is a good walk, a good meal and a nice glass of wine.
We all love books - even our youngest (aged 2) settles down to a regular story.
I'm a keen cook - making sure we eat balenced and healthy yet interesting food.
We're a family of music lovers, our eldest son has music lessons and my husband a talented musician.
When ever possible we will indulge ourselves in a spot of Londons cultural life - regularly visiting galleries and the theatre.
We regularly attend our local gym - and swim as often as possible, I am training to be a Pilates teacher and the boys have regular sports coaching.
We love to socialise and regularly get invited to stay with friends all over the UK and Europe.
In short we're fun, we're friendly, and love to chill out.
