PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Presenting a beautiful double-fronted Victorian family home located in one of Forest Hill’s most desirable roads. Refurbished to a high standard in 2015, the house welcomes you with a stylish front garden, railings and a beautiful mosaic path. Designed by award-winning architects Selencky Parsons, the most striking aspect is the addition of a stunning DeVol Shaker kitchen which spans the whole of the back of the house with bi-fold doors opening on to a south-facing private rear garden.

The garden is a really charming space, with a large patio area ideal for entertaining both in the day and at night. The lush trees and uplighters surrounding the garden create a beautiful illuminated ambience whether you are inside or outside the house.

The kitchen also gives access to a large dry cellar which has been neatly tiled and offers plenty of storage space.

At the front of the house, there are two reception rooms both with lovely period features such as the fireplaces, wooden floors and large sash windows with plantation shutters. The reception room to the right is an extension of the kitchen, with steps leading down, giving a vast feeling of space as you look down to the kitchen on the lower level.

The reception room on the left is a more formal lounge area with a stunning marble fireplace fitted with a working gas fire, perfect to get cosy and curl up on the sofa to watch a movie.

The main entrance hall is light and spacious, leading into all the primary ground floor rooms and stairs leading up. It also includes a stylish downstairs WC, separate cloak area for coats and shoes and a very handy utility room.

Upstairs on the half landing is a luxurious family bathroom with underfloor heating and a roll top bath. On the first floor are 4 large double bedrooms, all beautifully decorated with nice period features and new carpets throughout. They are all bright rooms with large sash windows and plantation shutters.

On the half landing to the 2nd floor there is an additional lavish bathroom with a walk-in shower, which has been clad floor to ceiling in natural Travertine marble tiles and has underfloor heating.

Upstairs to the 2nd floor are two additional rooms in the loft, perfect for an office, Aupair or kids' bedrooms.

The whole house has been completely re-plumbed and re-wired, including CAT6 cabling and a new boiler and Megaflow heating system, providing excellent water pressure throughout the house.

Benson Road is a pretty tree-lined street with no parking restrictions and good availability for spaces. The house is ideally located for both Forest Hill and Honor Oak Rail stations, which have regular Overground and National Rail connections.

Within a short walk at the top of the hill is the Horniman Museum and Gardens, a lovely place for family outings with breath-taking views of London, an aquarium, a small animal farm and the Horniman Triangle playground.

The house is close to two excellent local schools (Fairlawn Primary and Horniman Primary) and the outstanding Independent schools in Dulwich Village are within easy reach.
