About the property

House in Eltham, Greenwich, London, England, UK - Very Quiet London Suburban Street

Beechhill House was built in 1903 on farmland in Kent owned by Cameron Corbett a Scottish temperance advocate. Thus there are no pubs until the High Street. As an M.P. he ensured that the new railway went through his estates and so Eltham Station is a short 10 minute walk. The very quiet tree lined street has well kept gardens and small drives. All the houses are double fronted and Beechhill House is at the end of a terrace of four. It has many original features including cast iron fireplaces, sanded wooden floors, dado and picture rails, cornices and coving but it has also been fully modernised. It has a large walled garden.

There are 4 twin bedded rooms, 2 are en suite, and one double en suite bedroom. There is a large family bathroom. On the ground floor there is a large lounge, small lounge with double sofa bed, fully equipped kitchen which leads into a large dining area with 2 sets of French windows leading to the patio and very large lawned garden with shrubs surrounding ii.

About Bethan Farrar

My husband and I live in Eltham. Our 3 grown up children have now left home.

We have lived in Eltham for over 40 years and love the place and its position. We get the advantages of London, the theatre, the museums, the castles, the palaces, the shops and yet live in a quiet street where neighbours know each other and we have the Kent countryside on our doorstep.

The opportunity arose to own Beechhill House in 2004 and we decided to renovate it and offer it as self catering accommodation to anyone who wanted to sample London and its surrounds.

Bethan Farrar.

Bethan Farrar purchased this house in 2004

Why Bethan Farrar chose England

We love Eltham, it's parks, greenbelt, proximity to Central London and the Kent countryside. We also love 'Corbett' houses(circa 1903).

What makes this house unique

Beechhill House has all modern facilities and yet retains the old fireplaces, picture and dado rails, cornices and ceiling mouldings of yesteryear.It has a large garden and patio.

The very quiet street is only 20 minutes by mainline train to London Bridge. Greenwich Park is 4 miles. Central Greenwich is 5 miles, the O2 Arena is 5 miles and the main Olympic stadium is 8 miles.

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We spent a family Christmas at Beechhillhouse. Cas and Bethan were friendly hosts and had even put up some decorations to give a feeling of a home away from home.

The house is as advertised and is spacious, well-appointed and has a great location both for those with their own car(s) or if coming by train. Eltham station is just a 5-10 walk.

The shops on the high street are nearby and supermarkets are there too (Sainsbury's, Lidl, Marks & Spencer)

I would not hesitate to book again!
