Description

The estate occupies a hill-top position and is composed of two staggered, arching blocks, Bredinghurst to the south and Ladlands to the north which si widely celebrated as an iconic development in South London, built by the renowned architect, Kate Macintosh. Its form is reminiscent of a ziggurat or Italian hill town, rising twelve stories at its centre and reduced in scale at either end to soften its silhouette against the landscape.

The unique and imposing architectural home is located in the East Dulwich area with a short walking distance to Dulwich Park, Sydenham woods, The Horniman Museum, One tree Hill, Peckham Rye common and Dulwich village. Furthermore the current owners have recently renovated the property throughout, creating a charming balance of style and space.

This particular maisonette has the feeling of a house, laid out over 3 half landings connected via a staircase with original timber balustrades. This wonderfully bright three-bedroom maisonette consists of an entrance landing designed to provide space for bikes, coats and storage. The property descends in to a large living room with exceptional far-reaching views towards South London and Dulwich golf course. On the second level is an recently modernised kitchen with integrated appliances, master bedroom flooded by natural light from its wall to wall windows and one of two brand new bathrooms adjacent to the bedroom. The third level consists of a second bathroom and two additional bedrooms. There is access to a private balcony from the third bedroom which benefits from direct access to a small communal garden creating a peaceful utopia to relax and unwind in. The lateral split-level arrangement amplifies the sense of space, providing a pleasing line of sight throughout the property

The property further benefits from lift access, onsite convenience store, communal gardens, children’s play area, nature reserve and basketball court. If this wasn’t enough, the development offers one of London’s most spectacular views. The skyline views are best seen from the top floor of the development which can be accessed by foot or lift.

Transport links are provided via East Dulwich into London Bridge. Alternative transport can be accessed from North Dulwich, Honor Oak Park and Forest Hill which are on the East London line. This would make a wonderful home anyone looking to purchase a piece of property with significance important whether this would be a first time buyer, anyone looking to upsize in the Dulwich area, family or investor with an expected rental yield of 5.5%. Viewings are highly recommended.

History Dawson’s Heights was built the 1960s by Kate Macintosh when she was with the London Borough of Southwark’s Architecture Department. She had been previously working for Sir Denys Lasdun and considers him to be an influence on her buildings. She was just 26 years old when she designed this distinctive estate.

In 2012, the Secretary of State turned down an application by English Heritage to grant the estate a Grade-II listing. Emphasising the architectural contribution, English Heritage argued; ‘the dramatic stepped hilltop profile is a landmark in SE London, and endows the project with a striking and original massing that possesses evocative associations with ancient cities and Italian hill towns…The generous balconies with remarkable views and natural light, the warm brick finish and thoughtful planning introduce a real sense of human scale to a monumental social housing scheme.’

Macintosh said that "if large blocks were to be accepted and loved, as a new way of living, they must try to replicate the best characteristics of the terraced street; that families of different sizes and age groups should intermingle, as their needs and strengths would be diverse and complementary." Dawson Height’s is hugely popular in the architecture and design community. It is regularly named as a top visits for London’s Open House Festival, this year featuring in The Architects Journal, The Metro, The Evening Standard, Dezeen and Time Out.
