An unexpected slice of New England charm in London, in the shape of a cottage in an area dubbed the capital’s ‘best kept secret’

London property is a lot of things, but a quiet 2,400 sq. feet in a village with blooming gardens and private parking has not been one … until now.

You might think that this charming Georgian building with its New England aesthetic was thrown off the US East Coast.

You probably didn’t guess that it’s actually in Dulwich. However, we love surprises – and proof that country living in London is entirely possible is Ash Tree Cottage, which is currently for sale through Knight Frank for an estimated price of £2 million.

Set in “its own private micro-village” on Mount Gardens’ Sydenham Hill Conservation Area, the hotel has undergone a complete refurbishment to become “a light and airy four-bedroom stand-alone home full of character”.

The results will be truly inspiring – the kitchen-dining room flows into a leafy garden leading to a covered outdoor terrace. Also helping to create flow between indoor and outdoor life is a garden room plus a separate art studio/separate outbuilding.

Cozy nooks with fireplaces pair with a vibrant natural palette, proving once again that this is a home for all seasons and places.

The neighborhood has been called “South East London’s biggest secret” and it’s not hard to see why.

Forest Hill and Sydenham Skytrain Stations, less than a mile from the hotel, provide links to central London, truly bringing the best of both worlds. A little slice of country life without missing out on London amenities.
