PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

LAUNCHING SATURDAY 7TH NOVEMBER. Located on this quiet residential street is this lovely 1920’s end of terrace, 3/4 bedroom family home with a wide SOUTH FACING private rear garden, twixt the amenities of Crofton Park and Honor Oak Park. The house benefits from a home office/4th bedroom with separate toilet, created from a converted integrated garage, OFF STREET PARKING and there is also scope to convert the loft space (Subject to planning consent).

The front of the house has an appealing façade with large bay windows with original stained glass features, a fenced front garden shields the house from the street with a mature laurel hedge for additional privacy and a pathway that leads to a roofed porch. The font door is original and still retains more stain glass windows.

Upon entry there is a wide hallway with newly laid carpets that run up the staircase to the landing and has storage cupboards underneath. A window on the side of the house filters natural light into the staircase, onto the landing and back down into the entrance hall.

A door to the side leads to the office/4th bedroom, this room has been cleverly converted to create a versatile internal living space. The floors are made of solid timbers, vaulted ceilings above give the room plenty of height with a storage cupboard over the window and a Velux skylight bringing in natural light. There is a separate guest toilet, a window at the front overlooking the driveway and patio doors at the far end leading directly out to the garden.

On the other side of the house is the cosy main reception room which has high ceilings, beautiful parquet flooring, a stunning working period fireplace and a large square bay window incorporating original stained glass inserts that fills the room with light.

The reception room at the back of the house has been knocked through to the kitchen to create a lovely entertaining/family room. Once again there are stunning period features such as the parquet flooring, a working fireplace with ornate surround, high ceilings and floor to ceiling French doors that lead out to the rear garden. As this room faces directly South this is a very light and bright space all year round.

The kitchen area is separated by a breakfast bar with wooden worktops offering storage to both areas and offers space for a fridge and freezer under the counter. The rest of the kitchen is set again the far wall where there are plenty of wall and base mounted units housing the oven and hob with extractor above, space for the washing machine and an integrated dishwasher. Solid wooden worktops above sit in front of a light blue metro tiled splash back and the sink sits nicely next to the patio door that leads out to the garden.

The SOUTH FACING garden is the star of the show! As the house is located on an end of terrace plot, its wider than most of the gardens on the street, there is a nice patio area closest to the house, beyond this is a central lawn that is surrounded by mature plants, trees and shrubs and at the far end of the garden are two sheds for gardening equipment and tools. Thanks to the SOUTH facing aspect the garden is a sun trap and gets sunlight all year round!

Upstairs there is a large double bedroom at the front of the property which has newly laid carpets and a nice curved bay window incorporating original stained glass inserts. Adjacent is a smaller double bedroom with wood effect flooring and another original stained glass window. Located at the rear of the property is another large double bedroom with newly laid carpets and a window that has nice views over the garden.

The family bathroom also sits at the rear of the property, it has partially tiled walls with solid wood flooring, a bathtub with a separate walk in shower enclosure, accompanied by a Victorian style wash hand basin and toilet. Two frosted windows offer plenty of natural light and additional ventilation.
