Perched at the top of Forest Hill, offering far reaching views from the upper floors over the London skyline (including views of St Paul’s) and the Kent countryside is this lovely 5-bedroom, double fronted, detached 1930’s family home. The house benefits from approximately 2000 sqft of internal living space, off street parking for 3 cars, a garage and a 90 ft rear garden.

This house ticks all the boxes for a growing family home, with a less than few minute walk to two highly rated primary schools and the renowned Horniman Museum. You are spoilt for transport options with a 10min walk to either Honor Oak Park or Forest Hill Train Stations, with Dulwich Park and village being just a 25min walk away too.

The house itself has great curb appeal being double fronted and set back from the street, shielded by a large driveway and walled front garden. The garage is set to the side of the house and leads through to the side return and rear garden.
As you enter the house there is a grand entrance hall with a central staircase leading upstairs that has two storage cupboards underneath. The front door has beautifully kept original stained glass windows in the door and surrounding porch.

To the right of the house a large double reception room offering generous proportions. To the front of the house, there is a large curved window with original stained glass in the upper section of the windows, and there is also a nice feature fireplace as a centrepiece. The rear of this room is a dining area that has double patio doors leading to a conservatory that overlooks and gives direct access to the rear garden.

On the other side of the hallway is an additional reception room which also has lovely stained glass windows and would make a great playroom or office.

The kitchen is located at the back of the house and has nice views over the garden. It’s a good size with plenty of worktop space including wall/base mounted units with integrated appliances. The kitchen also gives access to the rear garden via the side return through a hallway that houses a downstairs WC.

The private rear garden is a very good size, approximately 90ft long, with a patio area adjacent to the house and a lawn bordered by mature shrubs and plants.

Upstairs on the first floor are 5 bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom is at the front of the house and mirrors the reception room below including the curved bay window which has lovely views over the London skyline. This room also includes fitted wardrobes along one side of the room.

The second bedroom at the rear of the house also has fitted wardrobes, offering nice views over the garden and beyond over the Kent countryside.

Bedroom 3 is at the front of the house which has more fitted wardrobes surrounding space for a double bed and views to the front through another nice original stained-glass window.

The last two bedrooms are in the middle of the house on opposite sides, one facing front and the other to the rear, these are the smaller rooms which make good kids bedrooms, nursery or study.

The two bathrooms are located to the far right hand side of the house, there is a fully tiled shower room with toilet, wash hand basin and a heated towel rail, together with underfloor heating.

The family bathroom is a good size, fully tiled and includes a wash hand basin, bath with shower above, toilet and bidet.

The loft is accessible from the hallway and can be easily converted to create even more space if required. The current owners have also enquired about extending the downstairs space. Both extensions plans have already been drawn up with planning approved.

Rocombe Crescent is an idyllic location, part of a triangle of streets surrounding a lovely green that is maintained by the local resident’s association and sometimes opened for neighbourhood picnics in the summer. This residential neighbourhood is very peaceful, and benefits from being close to highly rated schools such as Horniman and Fairlawn primary schools, with Horniman Gardens and its famous museum a short stroll away whilst still being within easy access to Forest Hill and Honor Oak Park rail stations that have regular links to London Bridge, Victoria and the London Overground.

The amenities of Forest Hill, Honor Oak and Dulwich Village are both close by offering an array of popular shops, bars, restaurants and cafes.
