The house offers a spacious reception room, dining area, good size kitchen, separate WC, three double bedrooms, family bathroom, off street parking, dedicated side return access and a South facing rear garden.

Just off Kirkdale, this part of Sydenham is conveniently located between Forest Hill and Sydenham rail stations, with efficient Overground connections to the city and National Rail to London Bridge.

Halifax Street is a very quiet residential street lined with beautiful unique Victorian semi-detached cottages with white picket fences, stone cobbled pavements and antique street lamps. To maintain the character, the street has been listed as a preservation area. Taking a stroll down this street is like walking back in time.

The front of the house has paved off street parking for two cars and a side doorway entrance into the house.

At the back of the reception/dining room there is an open staircase leading upstairs and a doorway leading to the rear of the property where there is an entrance to the kitchen.

The kitchen has plenty of cream wall and base mounted units, (everything integrated), wooden effect worktops, a stainless-steel sink and tiled flooring. The room is illuminated by a large double-glazed window to the side return and a patio door that opens to the garden. The garden is South facing which catches the sunlight all day long.

Immediately as you step out into the garden there is a slate patio area, perfect for alfresco dining and a lawn surrounded by colourful boarders and a backdrop of an ancient brick wall which adds character to this lovely garden. The side return is a useful space housing a useful garden shed and a gate leading to the front of the house.

Upstairs offers very calming, well-proportioned, living space that has an interesting layout and is carpeted throughout.
As you come up the stairs on the half landing there is access to the rear bedroom which is has its own separate toilet and wash hand basin. Making this a great guest bedroom or office. On the other side of the staircase towards the front of the house is a landing that leads to the other two bedrooms and family bathroom.

The adjacent bedroom is in the centre of the house and is another good size double bedroom, it has a sash window to the side of the rear and carpeted floors.

The bathroom is decorated in a selection of fashionable grey wall tiles on the floor and walls and a funky stained double-glazed window that fills the room with coloured light. There is a contemporary white three-piece suite, sink with vanity unit and a luxurious shower enclosure over the bath.

As well as being close to the transport facilities, just down the road, Forest Hill has a library, swimming pool and gym as well as an array of places to eat and drink. Around the corner there is the excellent Japanese at Hibagon Sushi & Grill, '161' is a new organic wine bar and the cafe does great coffee. Take a short drive to Dulwich Village or Crystal Palace Triangle for more options. Sydenham Wells Park, Mayow park and Crystal Palace Park are both within easy reach for a walk or a picnic in the summer!
