Henry Tate Mews SW16

£1,700,000 Withdrawn

Sir Henry Tate was an English sugar merchant and philanthropist, noted for establishing the Tate Gallery in London.

Before founding the first Tate gallery in 1897 (now known as Tate Britain), Sir Henry Tate hung his collection of (then) contemporary British art in a spectacular double-height Grade II*-listed former billiard room, beneath an enormous original skylight, at his home, an 1835 mansion by Streatham Common on what is now known as Henry Tate Mews (formerly Park Hill).

Built originally in the 1830’s, the mansion, previously occupied by Sir Henry Tate, was sensitively redeveloped in 2000. This incredible house spanning 3455 sqft is centred on the original billiard room, illuminated by the magnificent original glass clerestory, or skylight, which runs the length of the room. The prototype Tate Gallery has been made into a double-height living room with a mezzanine floor reached by a spiral staircase. A modern, fully fitted kitchen has an island unit at it’s centre, and a very useful utility room tucked off to the side. Upstairs there are five generous double bedrooms, three of which have an en-suite, with a further bathroom being shared by the two bedrooms on the top floor.

Henry Tate Mews is a beautiful, privately owned estate situated at the top of Streatham Common North, across the road from the open spaces of Streatham Common and wooded walks of The Rookery. It offers a secure and idyllic setting for family life, sitting in approximately six acres of private landscaped gardens, including a listed grotto, folly and orchard. Streatham train station (20 mins from London Blackfriars) is less than a mile away. There are many excellent schools nearby including St. Andrews (0.7 miles), Julians (0.5 miles), and Immanuel & St Andrews (1 mile). Dunraven secondary school is also just a mile away.
