Pickwick Estates are proud to present to you this beautify presented four bedroom Victorian home located on a quiet, leafy, desirable road in the St Johns conservation area. There are external steps leading up to the original front door and entrance hall. Alternatively, a few steps down bring you to a second entrance point accessing the lower ground floor. The entrance floor is raised to provide a pretty view at an elevated level, whilst the lower floor is naturally bright. Semi-detached and sporting a garden of almost 120 foot at its longest point, the property benefits original features, is well equipped for growing families and is located just a minutes' walk from transport.

An amazing white wisteria smothers the front of the house and complements the front garden. Inside you'll find two elegant reception rooms to your left. Separated if desired, by original double doors, the rooms each retain original period fireplaces with marble surrounds. Original wooden floors, deep skirting boards and coving have all been retained, with plenty of space to relax.
The rear room has fitted shelving and a view over the garden. Along the hall you'll find the staircase splits and invites you into a long and lavish four piece bathroom. It's large enough that the current owners have a sofa in here too! On the lower level you'll find a bedroom/reception with views to the rear garden and a very charming kitchen with bay window overlooking the front garden. There is a handy utility room just off the kitchen, plumbed in for a washing machine with space for tumble dryer and second fridge/freezer if required. The wooden units are arranged in an L-shape, incorporating a lovely stainless steel range cooker in the chimney breast. Original pull up Victorian shutters are a great feature in this room. Also on this floor you'll find a downstairs loo, plenty of storage cupboards and another family room/reception with double doors leading onto the garden.

Take the stairs up to the first floor to find two huge bedrooms, each with a fireplace, with the master stretching across the front. Both rooms have delightful décor including wooden floors, original fireplaces and period features. There is also a final bedroom on the second floor with plenty of eaves storage and far-reaching views to Canary Wharf and beyond.

A striking feature of this house is the rear garden which has been professionally landscaped and includes several seating areas, lawns, pergola, vegetable beds, specimen trees, greenhouse and garden shed.

The location is excellent with good transport links at the end of the road - St. John's station is a minutes walk, taking you to Canon Street (while London Bridge work is completed) in 13 minutes. Pick up the DLR at Deptford Bridge, Elverson Road, or Lewisham - all within very easy walking distance. More options with the London Overground Line at New Cross Gate or Brockley for excellent services to Hoxton, Shoreditch and Clapham Junction. You'll be on the Jubilee Line at Canada Water in around 6 minutes - great for Canary Wharf or West End. Central London is easily accessible from here. The green open spaces of Brookmill Park, Friendly Gardens, and Hilly Fields are all nearby. Greenwich and Blackheath are both just a short drive away. Brockley Farmers Market is proving a real hit with all ages - it's on every Saturday just two minutes round the corner. Wall-to-wall street food, strong coffee to help the hangover and hipsters to inspire future fashion moves - it's well worth a visit. Ashmead Road has an annual street party in June, and if that's not enough, there are three excellent gastro pubs just a short stroll away.

There are plenty of school options to be found; the property is within the catchment area for Ashmead, St Stephens and Lucas Vale - the latter having just received outstanding from Ofsted in all five categories.
