A charming end of terrace 4-bedroom Victorian family home, located in the heart of Crofton Park within minutes of the station as well as local shops of the bustling high street and highly rated schools.

This beautiful home offers bright and spacious accommodation that is arranged over three floors, including a recent loft conversion which has increased the internal living accommodation to 1395 square feet. There is also a driveway, a cellar and a lean to in the side return, both of which offer excellent additional storage as well as access from the front of the house to the rear.

The house has a typically attractive Victorian façade with exposed bricks and detailed masonry around the windows and doors. The property sits back from the street and proudly at the end of the terrace, which means its sits on a wider plot than other houses on the street! This means the house can benefit from driveway in addition to a front garden and direct access to the rear garden which many Victorian terraces don’t have.

Upon entry there is an entrance hall that houses the original Victorian staircase which has a storage cupboard and access to the cellar beneath. The floors have exposed original floorboards and the walls are an exposed plaster effect, both are interesting rustic features throughout the house.

At the front of the house is a bright and spacious front reception room offering plenty of period character and charm. It has high ceilings featuring original cornicing and a ceiling rose, a Victorian style fireplace with surround, exposed original floorboards and a large bay sash window that floods the room with natural light.

Large Victorian double doors separate the front reception room from the rear offering the versatility of having a double reception or having them separate. The rear reception room is a cosy lounging area which has French doors that offer direct access to the garden.

The rear of the house is occupied by a kitchen dining room. The first part of the room is designated to a dining space and there is plenty of room for a table and chairs under the large sash window that looks out to the side return.
The rear part of this room is the kitchen area where there is plenty of wall and base mounted cupboards utilising both sides of the room. The gas hob with oven below is set to one side of the room and the sink is opposite, sat neatly under a window to the side return.
French doors to the rear open to provide direct access to the rear garden.

The garden has been well thought out to create a number of seating areas that is surrounded by mature plants and shrubs. Closest to the house a patio area wraps around the house and down the side return which has a charming cobblestone floor. Above this area is a natural canopy of a grape vine which is lovely in the summer months. At the far end of the garden there is a raised patio area that is engulfed by climbing jasmine.
The lean to on the side of the house has gates on both ends which can be locked up securely so its safe to keep bikes, buggy’s and gardening equipment.

Upstairs, off the first-floor landing is the family bathroom which is located at the back of the house. The rustic theme continues with exposed painted floorboards and more exposed plastered walls. The sanitaryware are all in a Victorian style being sympathetic to the house, they include a wall hung wash hand basin, a toilet and a freestanding bathtub that is fitted into the corner of the room. There is a large storage cupboard behind the door and the cast iron radiator under the sash window to the rear is a nice finishing touch.

There are two double bedrooms on this floor, both have exposed original flooring, sash windows and feature fireplaces. The one at the front is the larger double spanning the whole width of the house.

At the top of the house the loft has been converted to create a further two bedrooms and an en-suite shower room.
The smaller bedroom is off the half landing and makes a good home office, study or kids bedroom. The front part of the loft has been converted to create a large double bedroom which has engineered wood flooring and two skylights offering plenty of natural light.
The en-suite shower room is stylishly kitted out with funky patterned floor tiles matching an accent wall in the walk-in shower. A brass rain fall shower head above is connected by exposed copper pipes to an antique wall mounted wash hand basin, which sits neatly next to the toilet and below a window offering natural light and ventilation.

The neighbourhood is very popular with young families due in part to the number of highly rated primary schools in the area, including Beecroft (Ofsted outstanding).

For dining out, there are several restaurants to choose from locally including a Malaysian deli, the Crofton Park Tavern, a hip sourdough pizzeria (Mama Dough), a family-run Sardinian (Le Querce) and an award-winning Indian (Babur).

You can pick up groceries from a Budgen's or Co-Operative and Sainsbury's Local supermarket in Honor Oak Park. Coffee shops are plentiful including Arlo & Moe, Fred's and the Brockley Mess. The Brockley Jack is a popular local pub too.

If you're looking for craft beer, fine wines and wholesome food, then you have two for the price of one - the Beer Dispensary and Jerome's.

The Rivoli ballroom s an iconic building in the area and just at the end of the street!

Crofton Park is nearby for quick and easy access into Blackfriars and St Pancras. In addition, you can walk to Honor Oak Park station for mainline services to London Bridge as well as Overground services northwards to Shoreditch and Highbury and Islington, and southwards to Croydon..
