Rare Artist’s Studio House - Havelock Walk, London, SE23

This property has an EPC rating of awaiting

Guide Price £625

Located amongst the artistic community on Havelock Walk, this large studio house offers seldom available live/work appeal and superb outside space.

Like all genuine live/works this house has entrances for both the work space – via large, triple doors if required – and privately for the residential part of the house and they can both be completely separated from each other.

The house itself has two bedrooms on the ground floor, the main one being light filled and overlooking the rear GARDEN. The bathroom is simple and clean and features a roll-top bath with overhead shower. The large entrance hall has room for bikes and also houses the utility/airing cupboard.

A white wooden staircase leads up to the first floor living room, which is simply stunning in every way. Triple height ceilings, beautiful wood flooring, masses of natural light from front and back windows and Velux skylights. The open-plan kitchen is completely bespoke, with its worktop being hewn from a Savile Row tailor’s work table and a six ring hob integrated into it. There is also a very useful mezzanine area overlooking the main room.

The big surprise is the huge roof terrace accessed via French doors from the living room. South facing and decked in wood, this outside space completes the house beautifully.

Havelock Walk is one of the oldest mews in South East London. The properties were built between 1863 – 75 to house the horses and grooms that worked the Croydon Canals before the advent of trains. Much of the street was bombed during the war, when the station was demolished, but this house was spared and is one of the most original in the mews and still retains much of its original character.

The canal ran behind in David’s Road, until houses were built on it at the turn of the century. Although some of the original canal still remained visible at the bottom of Manor Mount, until the 1980s when it was drained and built on.
The house was fully renovated by its current owner in 2000, having not been occupied for some 40 years.
The mews now houses a variety of live/work   properties and is a thriving community of crafts people and artists, who open up their unique spaces a couple of times a year to showcase their work.
This is a super rare opportunity for someone to live in such a historic and creative part of London.
