An amazing Victorian villa in the grounds of a ancient palace, yet under 10 miles from central London

Situated on the ancient royal grounds of Eltham Palace, Mottisfont Hall has undergone a major transformation over the past 15 years to create an impressive family home.

What was once eight apartments is now arguably one of Greenwich’s most unique and attractive homes, spanning over 14,000 sq. Feet of artfully reimagined living space.

Marketed with Knight Frank, with offers in excess of £6.5 million, Mottisfont Hall offers 10 bedrooms, seven reception rooms, a “lounge floor” and a separate three-bed carriage house.

This magnificent family home sits on an acre of land within the grounds of the ancient royal palace of Eltham.

Within 14th century Eltham Palace was one of the “largest and most visited royal residences in the country.” Monarchs, including Henry VII, often stopped here and hunted in the surrounding parks.

Built in the 1860s, the house retains many features from its period, including Victorian tiled floors, oak and walnut panelling, and high ceilings. They are paired with new large crystal windows, expansive skylights and subtle round features (including the eye-catching glass element in the conservatory).

The conservatory is as unique as it is spectacular, with exposed red brick walls and huge floor-to-ceiling windows. This new look runs through the open plan kitchen and living space.

Areas that retain a more traditional look, with wood-paneled walls and ornate cornices, include an impressive entrance hall, office and upstairs bedrooms.

The result is a home that gently blends old and new without sacrificing any original features or overall style.

On the lower floor you will find a sauna, a 25m swimming pool and jacuzzi (still under construction) and a gym.

The detached barn with three bedrooms is completely self-contained and can be divided into two apartments if needed.

Outside, the back garden has an extensive lawn 125 meters deep. A raised patio and mature trees complete the space.

The city of Eltham is only a five minute walk away and you will find railway stations at Eltham and Mottingham from which you can reach Charing Cross in 25 minutes and London Bridge in less than 20 minutes.

The Blackheath Golf Course is to the south, and the Eltham Palace grounds are bordered by a rear garden, making this place incredibly lucrative.

Mottisfont Hall is currently listed for sale through Knight Frank for £6.5 million – see more photos or contact an agent for more information.
