The smell of freshly baked bread can, apparently, help to sell your property - if this is true, this converted bakehouse will get snapped up very quickly.

Dating back to around 1850, this unique warehouse in Blackheath Village was once bustling with activity, supplying the local stores with freshly baked bread.

Although the smell of bread no longer lingers, it is now a beautifully converted four-bedroom house - listed on Zoopla for £1,350,000 - featuring a private garden, sunroom, and roof terrace.

At the heart of the house is a stylish, recently fitted farmhouse kitchen, a detail that pays homage to the home's history.

This open-plan space hosts a breakfast bar at its central island, integrated appliances, and elegant pendant lighting.

The property is packed with characterful features from its past, including an impressive spiral staircase, exposed steel beams, stone-tiled flooring, and a cosy gas fire.

Above, the upstairs floors showcase stripped wood flooring and exposed brickwork, adding to the sense of rustic elegance.

As well as four bedrooms and two bathrooms, the Blackheath property also has a private balcony and a sunroom that leads to a private roof terrace.

Tucked away in the corner of a courtyard, the Bakehouse is just moments away from Blackheath Village's shops, bars and restaurants.
