- 3 Bedrooms
Built c. 1895, the two houses are internally linked to provide a large 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home, full of character and period features.
In 1987 and again in 1996 Banyard Road went through major improvement works by Humphrey FW Davey (formerly Tower Hamlets' Chief Architect). The approach was to reconfigure the interiors, creating larger rooms and maximising daylight by extending upper-floor ceiling heights whilst maintaining the properties' character.
You are welcomed with a sitting room that offers generous floor to ceiling heights, floods of light from the original sash windows and a generous opening between the two buildings. Leading on to the garden there is a south-east facing garden/morning room which was formerly the kitchen for this half of the home. The first floor has two double bedrooms and a fully-tiled bathroom with roll top bath. The master bedroom has an impressive floor to ceiling height of around 3.9m with exposed roof beams and feature pendant lights.
The east of the home greets its guests with a large dining room that has an original marble fireplace, reclaimed period flooring and a new staircase. To the rear there is a galley-style kitchen that opens onto the private patio/courtyard with breakfast bar, pantry, integrated Smeg appliances and double bowl Butler sink.
The uppers of this half of the property contain a double bedroom with built-in storage, Juliet balcony and exposed roof beams. The first floor also has a landing room with storage and bathroom with rolltop bath. The 330 sq. ft. basement has been tanked providing a great study.
The gardens create a special and rare haven with central patio/courtyard, outhouses/sheds, WC and an established collection of rose trees and herbaceous borders. The rear of the gardens is bounded by a high wall forming part of the listed Victorian Southwark Park Primary School.
