Located in the leafy surroundings of Chislehurst, Tapiola is one of Kent’s most architecturally interesting and appealing houses. It has four bedrooms, three reception rooms and generous garden space at the front and back.
Designed by the architects Anthony Goddard and Donald Manton in 1975, the house was built to exacting standards and still retains many of its original high-quality features. The inventive use of space at Tapiola, and the sympathetic integration of the house into its wooded environment, won the architects a commendation from the Royal Institute of British Architects shortly after it was built.
The house was recently fitted with a new gas-fired boiler, and is double-glazed throughout. Although in good general order, it would benefit from some refurbishment. There are numerous possibilities for extensions and alterations throughout the house (assuming that they are in keeping with the original architecture, as the house is locally listed).
Tapiola benefits from an outstanding location on a quiet residential road in a conservation area in Chislehurst. Chislehurst is a popular historic village situated approximately 12 miles from central London. It is well served by a selection of shops, restaurants and other facilities, and is also close to a number of highly regarded schools.
Frequent trains run from Chislehurst station (Zone 5) to London Bridge and Charing Cross, with journey times of approximately 15-30 minutes. London Gatwick Airport is approximately 28 miles away.
