  • If you want a property with the wow factor then look no further, The Surgeon Rear Admirals House retains its historic character, sitting proudly in the centre of a terrace with two wings including former staff quarters. The accommodation of this impressive Georgian townhouse is arranged over four floors to the main house with three storey and two storey wings, the total accommodation including garaging and stores amounts to over 9,581sq ft. There is an immense feeling of space with large sash style windows and high ceilings. There are very few occasions when you get the opportunity to own a truly unique part of British history, this Grade II Listed Admirals residence is a stunning example of grand Regency living set in 65 acres of heritage conservation grounds. The house was commissioned by King George II and designed by Theodore Jacobsen.

  • Since it was constructed in 1796 the house has been home to and visited by a whos who of British history. We have been presented with the visitors book by Haslar Heritage, which is kept in the Naval archives in Greenwich, it makes for amazing reading, a selection of those that have graced the house: Admiral Nelson, Duke of Wellington, Duke of York, Edward Jenner, Sir Edwards Parry, Professor T Huxley, Queen Victoria, Winston Churchill, King George V and Queen Mary, Princess Margaret, Princess Alexandra and Prince Charles.

    The internal accommodation has been sympathetically restored by the current owners with the main house having four bedrooms, two bathrooms, four reception areas, a kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom, five basement rooms and utility space, additional to that there is first floor studio and cinema room over the top of the former stables on the north west wing. On the south east wing, accessible via a second staircase are a further five/six bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate cloakroom.

    There are two enclosed courtyards in behind high gates and walls leading to garaging and large storage space. The rear garden extends to 0.781 of an acre and is arranged as three separate areas with formal gardens, the primary one with the unique design, shaped like an anchor which is noticeable from the 1st floor veranda. This then leads to a further secret walled garden and onto an orchard that leads round to the left of the terrace. The Orchard and open land beyond the walled gardens at the rear of the property are protected grounds as they used to form the original burial ground for the hospital. The Memorial Gardens were established to the right of the terrace shortly after the construction of the buildings.
