Open day Saturday 3rd August. Beautifully presented and offering bundles of character and charm is this 5-bedroom, Victorian terraced family home on this popular residential street in the heart of Honor Oak Park.

The exterior of the house has great kerb appeal, a typical Victorian terrace with sash windows set in a square bay, surrounded by detailed masonry. The house has been painted in a stylish light grey, set back from the street with a neat front garden shielded by a Laurel hedge with a black and white tiled pathway leading to a classic period doorway and porch.

On the ground floor there is a lovely double reception room which has original stripped and varnished wooden floors. The front section is the lounge which has high ceilings, a cast iron fireplace as a centrepiece with a built-in storage cupboard and shelving in the alcoves, the large square bay windows illuminate the room with natural light and is furnished with plantation shutters.
The rear part of this reception room makes a great dining area, there are more fitted cupboards and shelves in the alcove of the chimney and a large sash window overlooks the garden through the side return.

The kitchen breakfast room leads off the dining area and was recently fitted in the summer of 2017. It offers plenty of storage in the elegant blue and white units, also incorporating integrated Neff appliances and the boiler that was fitted in 2015, a white Qwartz worktop housing the sink and hob which has a stylish open brick styled splash-back and extractor above. A double-glazed window with above the sink and patio doors lead to the garden.

The garden is neatly landscaped with a decked patio area, perfect for al fresco dining on those warm summer evenings, followed by a lawn which is surrounded by boarders of mature shrubs and plants. At the rear of the garden is a further patio to catch the evening sun and a shed.

The first floor has a charming master bedroom that spans the whole width of the front of the house offering plenty of period features such as original floorboards, a Victorian feature fireplace with fitted wardrobes built into the alcoves and 3 large sash windows that flood the room with natural light.
There is another double bedroom adjacent, which is in the middle of the house and at the rear of the property is a lovely study which overlooks the garden.

The family bathroom is generously proportioned and fashionably styled in grey metro tiled walls, slate flooring accompanied by a large square bathtub, floating contemporary wash hand basin with vanity unit and a toilet. There is a sash window to allow for additional ventilation and natural light.

Upstairs the loft has been converted (in 2015) to create an additional 2 double bedrooms and a good size shower room.
The back bedroom is off a half landing and has lovely views over the gardens below and rooftops beyond, the front bedroom spans the width of the house making it a very good size double, perfect for guests.

The shower room is decorated in a similar style to the bathroom below with floor to ceiling white metro tiled walls and grey tiled floors accompanied with another contemporary sink with vanity unit, toilet and a luxurious walk in shower enclosure.

An additional benefit to this house is that all the windows are wooden sash (except kitchen) - all recently restored and restrung.

Whatman Road is close to both Honor Oak Park station and Forest Hill where there are regular services to London Bridge (around 15mins) as well as London Overground services to Shoreditch and Highbury and Islington. There is also easy access to the Thameslink line at Crofton Park station or (around 15 mins walk) for Blackfriars, Farringdon and Kings Cross or Catford station for services to Charing Cross. The trendy high streets at Honor Oak Park and Brockley Rise boast a range of independent shops, cafes, bars, a deli and several highly recommended restaurants and pubs. A short walk in the other direction gives access to thriving Forest Hill, with its pubs, independent shops, restaurants and highly regarded gym and swimming pool. Nearby green leafy open spaces can be found at Blythe Hill Fields, One Tree Hill and Horniman Gardens all offering fantastic views of the London skyline. There is also a very good selection of Outstanding and Good primary schools nearby including Dalmain, Stillness, St William of York, and independent through school, St Dunstan’s College, is a short walk away.

A great family home in a superb location!
