Features and description

  • Freehold
This remarkable detached contemporary house is situated at the northern reach of Point Hill park, a short walk from Greenwich and Greenwich Park. It was designed by James Urquhart, of buj Architects, as his home, and extends to over 2,300 sq ft, with gated off-street parking and a private garden.

The house is designed in two principal sections. On one side a double-storey structure contains dining area, living room/study/bedroom, ground-floor shower and utility, and two expansive en-suite bedrooms above. On the other, is a single-storey section with living space, and between the two, a glass connection houses the kitchen.

Entry from Point Hill is via electric gates and down a cobbled driveway that culminates in a large forecourt with space for several cars and an electric charging point.

Designed as an antidote to the vertical confines of the traditional period fare, the house employs a structure of fair-faced concrete to allow for versatile and sweeping open-plan spaces throughout.

The kitchen lies at the core of the principal living space. It is flooded with light from above through a glazed roof section and is formed of two double-sided islands containing an induction hob with downdraft extractor on one side and appliances and a prepping sink on the other. The kitchen was designed by Vico Magistretti for Schiffini and combines corrugated black-aluminium cabinets with beautifully textured black-granite worktops and a breakfast bar in walnut. Wide-board Dinesen Douglas Fir extends throughout with underfloor heating, and the house is refreshed with mvhr.

A suspended fireplace by Ergofocus creates a striking focal point, black against the skylit concrete wall with recessed granite ventilation. At the front, sliding glazed doors open to the forecourt, and at the rear, to the lawn, birch-tree garden and seating area.

The third bedroom is currently used as a secondary living space and has a gas fireplace. It also opens fully to the forecourt; a wonderful attribute in warmer months. Following the glazed façade, a corridor opens through a pivot door to the formal entrance hall where a dramatic concrete staircase appears to hover within the skylit concrete void.

Pivot doors made from Paldao lead left and right to the two principal bedrooms. Their layouts are mirrored with built-in wardrobes at their inner walls and en-suite bathrooms at the extremes. These feature free-standing slipper baths, a walk-in shower and floating mirror units by Boffi. Roof lights with electric blinds pour light from above as does the glazed façade which is granted privacy by a screen of Ipe louvres.

The house is very well located at the north end of Point Hill park, within a ten-minute walk of the centre of Greenwich and a few minutes from the open expanses of Greenwich Park and Balckheath. The pretty old town, famous for its maritime history, has an excellent selection of restaurants, pubs and shops, as well as a Picturehouse cinema and a theatre. The Old Royal Naval College, designed by Sir Christopher Wren in the 18th century, hosts a popular programme of events in the gardens, including concerts, an open-air theatre and a jazz festival.

The closest station is Greenwich, running services to Canary Wharf and Bank on the DLR and rail services to London Bridge and London Cannon Street (taking eight minutes and 12 minutes respectively). The Thames Clipper can be boarded from Greenwich Pier and runs services to Westminster in one direction and the O2 arena in the other.
