A unique and well-maintained, end of terrace, Victorian 2/3-bedroom home, sat proudly on the corner of a popular no through residential road in the heart of Honor Oak Park, less than 400 meters from the amenities of the high street and the station.

Thanks to being on a corner plot, the house benefits from a unique layout with both front and rear gardens, gated access to the rear and plenty of windows providing lots of natural light.

The house is set back from the street by a neat front garden shielded by a wall with a gate and a pathway leading to the entrance.

Upon entry there is a reception/dining room with wooden flooring that spreads seamlessly throughout the ground floor and this room also benefits from dual aspect windows. A staircase leads upwards and offers plenty of storage beneath.

At the front of the house is a lounge that has high ceilings, wood flooring and three large square sash style windows that offer plenty of natural light.

Located at the rear of the house is the separate kitchen which has plenty of white gloss cupboards and space for a washing machine and dishwasher beneath the counter. There is an integrated oven with gas hob and a stainless-steel sink that sits neatly under a double-glazed window that looks out to the garden. A door to the side offers direct access to the rear garden.
There is also an opportunity to increase the size of the kitchen by extending into the side return. (Subject to normal planning consents)

The garden is a tranquil, intimate, and low maintenance with a patio surrounded by boarders for shrubs and plants, perfect for al fresco dining on those warm summer evenings. There is also side gate access from the front of the house, handy for shopping and bikes! There is also a large double gate that gives onto Gabriel Street, which means the patio garden can double up as off-street parking! Very handy for anyone who has a motorbike or needs secure parking.

Upstairs, the landing offers access to a loft space above via an easy to access, pull-down ladder. The loft has been boarded out which makes it great for storage but there is also potential to extend upwards. (subject to planning consents)

The first floor has a charming double bedroom at the front of the house that mirrors the reception room below and has nice period features, carpeted flooring and 4 large sash windows that illuminate the room and offer nice views over the street.

Opposite is the bathroom that is neatly decorated with mosaic tiled walls and white floor tiles. The bathroom suite includes a wash hand basin, a toilet and a bathtub with a shower fitting and screen. For ventilation and natural light there is a partially frosted, high-level, double-glazed window.

Toward the rear of the house is another bedroom which comes with its own dressing room area! Upon entry is the dressing room area which has carpeted flooring, two large sash windows offering plenty of natural light and lots of cupboards and shelving! Beyond this is the bedroom which has a nice window to the side over looking the street.

Garthorne Road is a very popular quiet residential street, close to both Honor Oak Park station and Forest Hill where there are regular services to London Bridge (around 15mins) as well as London Overground services to Shoreditch and Highbury and Islington. There is also easy access to the Thameslink line at Crofton Park station or (around 15 mins walk) for Blackfriars, Farringdon and Kings Cross or Catford station for services to Charing Cross.

The trendy high streets at Honor Oak Park and Brockley Rise boast a range of independent shops, cafes, bars, a deli and several highly recommended restaurants and pubs.. A short walk in the other direction gives access to thriving Forest Hill, with its pubs, independent shops, restaurants and highly regarded gym and swimming pool.
Nearby green leafy open spaces can be found at Blythe Hill Fields, One Tree Hill and Horniman Gardens all offering fantastic views of the London skyline.
There is also a very good selection of Outstanding and Good primary schools nearby including Dalmain, Stillness, St William of York, and Fairlawn primary.
