The sale of The Gables offers the discerning purchaser a particularly rare opportunity to acquire a substantial property of local importance on a prime, 1.25 acre plot in one of Blackheath's premier residential streets.
Designed by Sir Aston Webb, and constructed as two separate residential dwellings in the late 1890's, the buildings were joined and converted to a nursing home in 1952. Now loosely arranged as four large apartments, the accommodation is predominantly arranged over two storeys and extends to in excess of 12,000 sqft. Whilst much of the original external character remains, several extensions have been added, and the interior fitted for care home use. The property will undoubtedly appeal to a wide variety of purchasers and appears eminently suitable for continued C2 use, reversion to private residence(s), use for institutional purposes, retreat, surgery or headquarters (stpp).
The current residents are scheduled to relocate to a new facility within Greenwich by December 2019. The Gables will therefore be vacant and surplus to requirements by January 2020.
