5 bedroom link detached house for sale

Shirley, Croydon, Surrey


Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

South Lodge is one of a pair of link detached Edwardian houses built in 1906 retaining many original features associated with a house of this era which include stained and leaded Edwardian windows, feature open fireplaces, Edwardian conservatory, original pine doors, and original ornate carpentry. The property offers spacious, well proportioned living accommodation throughout, with the conversion of a large loft in 2001 to create a 5th bedroom or additional reception room which has been skillfully done to link in with the original staircase of the house. Another major improvement to the house is the extension to the side creating a large bright kitchen/breakfast family room with two sets of double doors opening onto the garden, and four Velux windows. To the rear is a large 160' sunny westerly facing garden which has an attractive recently laid patio with inset lighting and is mainly laid to lawn. To the side the property has a single garage with shared driveway, and off road parking for 2/3 vehicles to the front. An internal viewing is imperative to appreciate the style/character and size this property has to offer.
