OPEN DAY SATURDAY 25th JANUARY . Beautifully presented and offering bundles of character and charm is this 4-bedroom, Victorian terraced family home on this popular residential street in the heart of Honor Oak Park. The house benefits from being within 400 meters of Honor Oak Park station, it has double glazed sash windows throughout and a brand new roof.

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 and exposed red brickwork. The house is set back from the street with a neat front garden shielded by a fenced 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 stunning cast iron fireplace with marble surround as a centrepiece, with a built-in storage cupboards and shelving in the alcoves, the large, double glazed, square bay sash window illuminates the room with natural light. The rear part of this reception room makes a great dining area, there is another lovely cast iron period fireplace and a large sash window that overlooks the garden through the side return.

The kitchen breakfast room leads off the dining area. It offers plenty of storage within the elegant white gloss wall and base mounted units, also incorporating integrated appliances and the boiler. The floor is made of Indian slate tiles, the worktop is white Qwartz, housing the sink on one side of the room that sits below the window of the side return and a hob on the opposite side which has a stylish metro tiled splash-back and extractor above. The worktop extends to create a breakfast bar where there is a window overlooking the garden and patio doors lead to the garden to the side.

The garden is low maintenance, a neatly landscaped patio with boarders of shrubs and plants, perfect for al fresco dining on those warm summer evenings.

The first floor has a charming double bedroom that spans the whole width of the front of the house offering carpeted flooring, a Victorian feature fireplace with fitted wardrobes built into the alcoves and 3 large double glazed sash windows that flood the room with natural light.

Also on this floor is another smaller double bedroom at the rear of the property which has stripped wooden flooring, a cute Victorian fireplace and also overlooks the garden.

The luxurious family bathroom is located in the middle of the house, it offers generous proportions and is fashionably styled with a mix of a contemporary bathroom suite and classic Victorian features. Exposed original floorboards are accompanied by a white cast iron radiator and a Victorian feature fireplace. A large freestanding roll top bathtub dominates the centre of the room complemented with a separate walk in shower enclosure, a floating contemporary a toilet and a chic butler sink wash hand basin that sits on a converted sewing machine table with cast iron legs. For additional ventilation and natural light there is a large frosted sash window that looks to the rear of the house.

Upstairs the loft has been converted (in November 2016) to create an a master bedroom suite with a good size en-suite shower room and an additional double bedroom.
The master bedroom spans the width of the house making it a very good size double and has lovely features such as an exposed brick chimney breast, cosy carpeted flooring, skylights and storage in the eaves.

The en-suite shower room is clad in funky blue metro tiles surrounding the toilet, sink with vanity unit and walk in shower enclosure. Another frosted double glazed window to the rear allows for light and ventilation.
