White London property
The brickwork, windows and doors of this Grade II listed Georgian house for sale in SE1 have been lovingly restored

‘White’ is one of two beautiful period properties for sale in SE1 which have been awarded Grade II status because of their historical importance to the area. Built in 1732, they have been dubbed ‘Hepple’ and ‘White’ after the master craftsman of 18th century furniture making, George Hepplewhite. Their graceful architecture, clean, symmetrical lines and spacious interiors epitomise the spirit of the Georgian age.

With four bedrooms, ‘White’ is the larger of the two houses for sale and will be available, fully refurbished, at £2,800,000. Throughout this sumptuous restoration you’ll find large, high-ceilinged rooms, elegant fireplaces and traditional sash windows. There’s a classically styled kitchen/diner with high specification appliances and a cosy family room on the lower ground floor. The ground floor offers a spacious living room and a study.

London property bedroom
This bedroom has been restored with elegance and a lightness of touch to highlight classical Georgian features - cornicing, decorative moulding, wall panelling and sash windows and a fireplace

The master bedroom (on the first floor) includes a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite; additionally there are three further, generously-sized bedrooms plus two bathrooms.

London property courtyard The raised courtyard garden in this London house is perfect for alfresco dining

The property also benefits from two outdoor spaces, an attractive courtyard garden and a sunny, private roof terrace. ‘White’ would make a great family home, with close proximity to several state primary schools judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted, not to mention one ‘Outstanding’ school too! There is also excellent secondary school provision in the local area.

The property is conveniently located on the south side of Long Lane, close to London Bridge station and Borough High Street. You’ll find an eclectic mix of boutiques, gastropubs, art galleries, bars and restaurants just minutes away in vibrant Bermondsey Street. Nearby Bermondsey Square is home to the Shortwave independent cinema and a popular weekly antiques market.

Travelling from London Bridge station, you can reach Charing Cross by overground train in just ten minutes. The Jubilee and Northern line tube connections available at London Bridge underground station offer direct routes to the City, West End, north, west and east London. Alternatively you can walk or cycle to the City across London Bridge or Tower Bridge.
