Prepared to be inspired by this stunning early Victorian (roughly 1850-60s), semi- detached 4 double bedroom, 2 bathroom family home twixt Honor Oak Park and Forest Hill.

This handsome house has an abundance of space and a number of unique features such as a newly laid driveway offering off street parking for 3 cars, a huge garage, a roof terrace off the master bedroom and a 120ft rear garden with a garden office with its own plumbed in toilet and kitchen!

Upon approach to the house, through cast iron gates, you are greeted by a stunning Victorian façade that has recently been re-rendered, bordered by a newly laid driveway that has been built with additional support to take the weight of 3 cars. The huge garage has a newly fitted insulated, electronic roller door operated with a fob. A classic black and white tiled pathway leads to raised ground floor steps to the porch protecting the large Victorian front door.

A grand entrance hall awaits beyond the front door, leading to the interconnected ground floor living space. At the end of the hallway is a spacious utility room with down stairs loo.
At the front of the house is a large sitting room with all the period features one would expect to find in a house like this, high ceilings, cornicing, a working Victorian fireplace, original floors, built in bookcases and plantation shutters furnishing the huge sash bay windows that flood the room with sunlight as its south facing. This room is separated by three massive original bi-folding doors that lead to the kitchen which can be closed off or opened up depending on the event.

The rear of the house is open planned creating a lovely spacious entertaining area that has 3 distinct areas, kitchen, dining room and kids play area/snug. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the mod cons one would need including a large island, double oven, 5 burner hob with extractor above and a large sink with drainer. The dining area is a huge space, large enough to seat at least 12. This area is illuminated by an orangery style skylight above and there is access to a courtyard leading the rear of the garage on the side of the house and double patio doors leading to the garden.

Tucked around the corner from the dining area is a cosy snug which has been taken over by the kids to create a perfect play area for their toys and a TV to keep them entertained but not out of sight.

The garden is quite special, offering 120ft which has been cleverly landscaped to make the most of the sun and the space with terraces, decking and children’s play area.
At the rear of the garden is a summer house/office which has been recently reroofed, it has its own patio area outside and is fully equipped with electricity, running water, a kitchenette and even its own loo! There is also sufficient space for a double sofa bed.
Upstairs are the sleeping quarters with the 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Off the half landing at the rear of the house is the family bathroom which is a decent size and fitted with slate floor tiles, underfloor heating, wash hand basin, toilet and bath with shower above.

At the end of the hall is a charming double bedroom, perfect for guests or a child’s room overlooking the flat roof.

The master bedroom at the top of the stairs has been cleverly designed to create a luxurious master suite, it has its own walk in wardrobe and a modern fitted en-suite bathroom with a large walk in shower, toilet, wash hand basin and your toes will keep toasty with underfloor heating. More spectacular is the door leading to a flat roof which is wrapped in a blanket of Wisteria and overlooks the rear garden, making this a lovely private secluded space to escape to. The flat roof has been recently re-roofed and protective tiles have been installed to make it a usable space.
At the front of the house are the last two bedrooms, the external walls in the spare room have been insulated to keep it nice and warm in the winter months.
Other benefits include new heating and hot water system including boiler and mega flow system (with sufficient capacity if the house is extended upwards) new radiators, new pipes and nest thermostat and fire alarm system. There is also scope to convert loft area/build on the flat roof/garage (subject to planning permission)
