Immaculately presented 5-bedroom 1930s, semi-detached family home with a large West facing private rear garden and nice views.

The house benefits from a rear extension making a lovely rear kitchen dining room leading out to the garden as well as a spacious double reception room.

The roof has also been extended into to create two further bedrooms and a shower room in addition to the 3 bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor. The house also benefits from double glazing throughout and a side return with a bike shed.

The property is located on this quiet residential street that has a very close knit community, close to the green open spaces of Blythe Hill Fields, between Crofton Park, Catford and Honor Oak Park.

The house is set back from the street by a mature walled front garden with a nice cherry tree on the street that gives a beautiful display of pink blossom in the spring! To the side of the house is a useful side return leading to the garden.

The exterior is a handsome façade with a painted render and large curved bay windows, a pathway leads to a handy porch where the entrance to the house is located.

Upon entry there is a wide hallway with engineered wood flooring and the staircase with good storage underneath.
At the end of the hall is a very useful utility room housing the washer drier and there is a guest toilet with a wash hand basin.

Both front and rear part of the double reception room are accessible from the hallway and is ingeniously separated by glazed bi-fold doors. Bleached engineered wood floors spread seamlessly through this entire area and into the dining room to the rear.

The front reception room is a cosy lounging area equipped with a wood burner fitted in the chimney breast and there is a low-level built-in cupboard in the alcove to the side, a perfect space for a TV. The curved front bay window is a nice feature and fills this room with plenty of natural light.

The middle reception room is another lounge area that is a versatile space, handy for keeping an eye on the kids from the kitchen! There are more built-in cupboards in one of the alcoves with shelving above.

Occupying the whole rear width of the house is a fabulous kitchen dining room extension. The kitchen is set to the side, it wraps around all the walls and extends to an island separating it from the dining area. This means there are plenty of wall and base mounted Shaker style units with lots of worktop space and an integrated dishwasher. The sink sits neatly under a window that looks out to the garden, the hob has an oven below and extractor above and there is space for a large fridge freezer.

The dining area is large enough for a good size table and chairs and there are large French doors that lead out to the garden.

Thanks to the WESTERLY facing aspect the garden catches the afternoon and evening sunshine which is perfect for al fresco dining on a summers evening.
There are wide steps that lead down to a raised patio area closest to the house which is clad in stylish Grey sandstone and wraps around the house offering access to the side return. Beyond the patio, separated by a bank of mature plants and herbs, with a couple of steps down, is a green lawn with a gardening shed at the bottom of the garden.

The staircase leading up to the first-floor landing is illuminated by a frosted window to the side return. Up here there are three bedrooms with carpeted floors and the family bathroom.

At the front of the house there is a good size double which has a large curved bay window mirroring the reception room below. Either side of the chimney breast are two large floor to ceiling fitted cupboards.

Adjacent is a smaller bedroom which makes a good study, nursery or child’s bedroom.

At the rear of the house there is another good size double bedroom with more fitted cupboards in the alcoves and nice far-reaching views over the garden and beyond.

The family bathroom has been recently decorated with fashionable white metro tiled walls around the bathtub and dark blue painted walls on the other side of the room. The bathroom is a good size offering plenty of space for the bath with shower above, wash hand basin and toilet. There is a frosted window to the rear for natural light and ventilation as well as a heated towel rail.

The loft has been cleverly converted to create two double bedrooms and a shower room. The bedroom at the front has two large Velux windows and storage in the eaves. The Bedroom at the back is in the dormer and offers spectacular views!

The shower room has been lavishly decorated with chic patterned tiled flooring and grey metro tiles in the walk-in shower enclosure. The toilet is set to the side and the contemporary wash hand basin has a grey vanity unit below to match the theme. A frosted window offers natural light and ventilation.
