Caterham Drive, Old Coulsdon, Surrey, CR5 1JH.

The Agent's Opinion:

This double-fronted, five bedroomed family home has been thoughtfully extended and tastefully decorated. The ground floor accommodation is most impressive and versatile, fitting for modern family life! The extended living space includes a lounge/dining room, measuring 24'8" x 10'2", as well as a separate family room, measuring 16'3" x 11'7", and an attractive “Shaker” style Kitchen which includes a Belling “Range” style cooker incorporating a 7-burner hob and double oven.

A particular feature is the rear garden, enjoying a pleasant and secluded south westerly aspect, landscaped to incorporate two lawned areas and a wooden decked area immediately adjoining the back of the house with inset lighting. Other benefits of this well-presented house include gas central heating, sealed unit double glazing, and a driveway providing plenty of space for off street parking.

Situation and Local Amenities:

The location of this property is a particular feature, enjoying a much favoured semi-rural setting within Old Coulsdon Village. Caterham Drive is a no-through road in the valley of Old Coulsdon. This particular property is on the southern side of Caterham Drive which enjoys a mainly level plot with a pleasantly secluded south westerly rear garden. The area enjoys several areas of open spaces nearby including Coulsdon & Kenley Commons and the Farthing Downs.

For convenience, there is also a local "hopper" 'bus service connecting Old Coulsdon's Village centre where a variety of local shops and services are available including a sub-Post Office and general grocery store. Further 'bus services connect the neighbouring towns of Caterham, Coulsdon, and central Croydon. Coulsdon South railway station is within two miles providing regular services to central London via East Croydon and to the Sussex Coast via Gatwick Airport and Redhill. The area is well served by local schools for all ages.
