PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Located on this quiet, picturesque cul de sac in the heart of Forest Hill is this charming 3 bedroom, DOUBLE FRONTED, DETACHED Victorian family home.

The house benefits from a private front and rear garden, three spacious reception rooms, lovely sash style windows that are furnished with plantation shutters, a downstairs WC, a beautifully styled family bathroom and an abundance of period features throughout. The house is conveniently located close to amenities as well as Forest Hill station with connections to the Overground and London Bridge

This special house offers great kerb appeal with a charismatic double fronted facade that has been well maintained with exposed London stock brickwork. The front door sits at the centre of the house with an arched porch above and a Victorian styled pathway from the street. There are large bay windows either side of the entrance with detailed masonry surrounding and the house is shielded from the street by a neat walled front garden.

The entrance hall has original wooden floorboards that seamlessly continue throughout the ground floor rooms. The hallway offers access to the ground floor reception rooms, a downstairs toilet and the staircase which has a storage cupboard underneath.

At the front of the house set behind the bay windows are the two reception rooms. The reception room on the left as you enter is the formal lounge which is a very cosy room full of character and charm. The floors are the original stripped wooden floorboards, the room has high ceilings, cornicing and picture rails. As a centrepiece there is space for a wood burning stove in the fireplace accompanied by fitted cupboards and shelving on either side of the alcoves. A large bay sash window furnished with plantation shutters illuminates the room with natural light.

On the other side of the hallway is the double reception room that offers and abundance of entertaining space, the room spans over 23ft (7m+) in length from front to back, almost the whole length of the house! Once again original stripped floorboards cover the whole space and there are more high ceilings with cornicing and picture rails. The front area has another large bay window to the front that is furnished with shutters and a lovely fireplace with brick surround.

The rear part of this enormous room makes a great dining area as it leads through to the kitchen. There is a sash window at the back overlooking the rear garden which gives the room additional natural light, there is also a chimney breast which has a built in cupboard on one side and shelving on the other, on the other side of the room there is an additional storage cupboard.

At the far end of the house is the kitchen where there is an obvious possibility to extend to make an open planned kitchen reception room (STTP).
The kitchen is currently fitted with a good amount of wall and base mounted cream units with a work top above housing the oven, hob with extractor above and sink with drainer, a cream metro style tiled splash back runs above the worktop. A window to the side offers natural light and additional ventilation and a barn style door gives access to the garden.

There is a decking and seating area directly outside of the kitchen which gets sunlight in the morning and evenings during summer months, a nice area for al fresco dining.

Beyond this is a patio garden that sits to the side of the house with room for further seating and BBQ area. This area gets sunlight for most of the day during summer months.

Upstairs, the landing has a window to the rear overlooking the garden and floods the hallway with natural light and gives access to the 3 double bedrooms and the family bathroom.

The master bedroom is at the front of the house and has full height fitted wardrobes along one side, there is currently space for a king size double bed, the floors are carpeted for extra comfort and there is a double-glazed window fitted with half shutters.

Adjacent to this at the rear of the house is the second bedroom which is also carpeted and has a feature fireplace with cupboards either side of the alcoves, another double-glazed sash window overlooks the garden at the back.

The third bedroom is a good size double and shares similar features with the second bedroom with the same carpeted floors, a fitted cupboard in the alcove of the original Victorian feature fireplace and shelving in the other alcove. A double-glazed sash window over looks the front, furnished with half shutters.

The bathroom has been sympathetically renovated to match the Victorian style of the house. The bathtub has a shower screen and shower attachment above with white metro style tiles that span across most of the room, this is accompanied by a Victorian style toilet and sink that sit on a black and white tiled floor. There is also a heated towel rail for additional comfort and a frosted double-glazed sash window for light and ventilation.
