Perched up high, on the popular Canonbie Road, offering stunning views over the London Skyline, is this well-proportioned, 1930's DETACHED 3 double bedroom family home. The house sits on a large plot of land and benefits from off street parking, an integrated garage and a South Easterly facing rear garden that wraps around the house.

The house is in good decorative condition throughout having been updated by the current owner and comes with planning consents for a loft conversion and side/rear extension.
This handsome double fronted house is utterly unique with an imposing, statuesque red brick façade, offering an abundance of 1930’s period features and a front facing balcony above the porch. The house is set back from the street by a deep walled front garden which has a storage area for bikes/bins, a pond and a driveway leading to the garage that is set to the side.
Upon entering the property, through the original front door, there is a spacious porch that leads through to a wide hallway housing the staircase with access to storage underneath. The hallway has the original wooden floorboards that have been painstakingly restored and are featured throughout the house. At the end of the entrance hall there is a frosted patio door that leads directly to the rear garden and offers additional light into the house.

There are two front reception rooms on either side of the house, both are very generous in size offering high ceilings, original stripped, sanded and varnished wooden floorboards, column style radiators under the windows, storage in the chimney breasts and two large square bay windows that fill these rooms with plenty of natural light.

The larger reception room runs the whole depth of the house and has dual aspect windows offering views of the front and the rear garden, this room also benefits from fitted storage cupboards.

To the rear of the property is the kitchen breakfast room which has lovely original features including original wooden floorboards and the original 1930’s tiled splashback. The kitchen offers enough space for a table and chairs and has three large storage cupboards, one of which houses the boiler and high-pressure hot water tank. The room also benefits from dual aspect windows with a column radiator beneath one and a patio door that leads directly out to the rear garden.

The garden is wraps around the house and is 115ft wide from one end to the other. It has been cleverly designated to create several distinct areas that come into their own at different times of the day. The side return has a patio area, perfect for a BBQ and al fresco dining in the summer. At the rear the patio extends and runs along the back of the house where there is access to an outside toilet. Steps lead up to a raised grassy lawn area which has a brick built shed to one side and stretches along the width of the property. On the other side of the garden, beyond the garage, there is another secret patio area that is raised up behind a mature bank of plants and shrubs. A nice spot for a fire pit and evening drinks.

Back inside the house, up the original wooden staircase there is a half landing that has beautiful French doors that open up to a front facing balcony. From here there are spectacular views revealed over Canary Wharf and the City. This is a particularly nice spot to relax and watch the world go by and time of day.

The landing on this floor is enormous and very bright thanks to the French doors from the half landing and a window to the rear. Once again, the floors are the original floorboards that have been sanded, varnished and run throughout all the rooms.

At the back of the house is a family bathroom with a separate toilet adjacent. The bathroom has white metro tiles around the sink and bathtub which has a shower above and glass screen. There is also a heated towel rail and a frosted window for natural light and ventilation.

The smaller of the bedrooms is also located at the back of the house. This is a particularly nice room thanks to the dual aspect windows looking out to the rear garden and the views of London, it also benefits from a large storage cupboard.

At the front of the house are the two larger doubles that are both very generous as they mirror the reception rooms below. The main bedroom runs the depth of the house with windows on either side of the room, the front window is a large square bay with original lead framed glass with a large column radiator below. It also has fitted cupboards and shelving either side of the alcoves of the chimney breast. The second large double on the other side of the hallway shares similar features and proportions with another large square bay window and more fitted cupboards along one side of the room.

The loft space is accessible from the hallway via a pull down ladder, this enormous space has already been granted planning permission to be converted into a habitable space.

Canonbie Road is a very popular location, there is a very good community of local residents and great amenities nearby. There are a number of highly rated Ofstead schools locally (Horniman and Fairlawn Primary schools). Canonbie Road is conveniently flanked by Honor Oak Park on one side and Forest Hill on the other, both areas offering a bustling array of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants for all ages. Both Honor Oak Park and Forest Hill stations are equidistant, about 0.5 miles. Both have the efficient Overground service and National Rail to London Bridge. Nearby green leafy open spaces can be found at Horniman Gardens, One Tree Hill, Blythe Hill Fields, Dulwich Park and Peckham Rye. Viewing of this unique family home is highly recommended..
