All it takes is one look to understand why the current owner of this house has happily stayed here for forty years. This superb property oozes kerb appeal and not only overlooks a lovely green where the children can play until their hearts are content, but it offers what every family needs - space.

With the lounge and dining room you'll be spoilt for choice over what room to entertain friends and family in on a special occasion. The kitchen is the perfect place to rustle up a culinary delight, just be careful you don't get sidetracked and burn your dinner watching all the birds and squirrels in the garden. This house has five bedrooms so if you're a large family then there is no need to worry about who gets which bedroom. The front and rear gardens are beautifully kept and the garage is the perfect place to house all your DIY tools or a small car.

Being in Shirley Park, this house is simply nothing over than perfect for families with children of school age. Trinity school is just a stone's throw away but this is closely followed by Coloma, Shirley High and St John's Church Of England school. Furthermore, West Wickham and East Croydon station are only a few miles away and offer fast and frequent trains to London. So if you are looking for a home which has it all, look no further!

What the Owner says:

1976 was the year we moved in and I remember that well! This house was recommended by a family friend due to the size and location and just as our friend predicted, it suited all our needs. The space it offered is absolutely superb but as our family grew, we needed more, so that's when we decided to extend up into the loft and gain two extra bedrooms. It is such a wonderful area to live in; I am so lucky to have schools, shops and transport links near by and what's more the neighbours are fantastic.

It will be sad to leave but since I now look after our grandchildren there is no need for all this space. It is time for the house to inherit a new family who will enjoy many happy times here.
