The Knoll

The new owner of this locally listed building in Blackheath commissioned E2 to carry out appraisals and master plans for the reorganisation and refurbishment of the property and gardens. The Knoll is a grand Georgian house which appears on some of the earliest maps of the area when Blackheath was a rural village outside London.

Built in the style after the famous architect Sir John Soane, The Knoll has a classical and symmetrical arrangement. The original stone staircase remains at the centre of the plan. The house was extended massively in the Victorian times to the east and west and then divided into two properties in the early 20th century. The first application for planning permission to reinstate the north drive into one, thereby reuniting this key elevation as whole, has been submitted.
