Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Having been a loving family home over the past 34 years ‘Cherries’ offers the perfect opportunity for any prospective purchaser to modernise, reconfigure or potentially extend to provide a magnificent residence in an exclusive location.

Already a substantial five bedroom, four bathroom detached house built circa 1935, the current owners have undertaken several extensions during their ownership to create a welcoming, supremely spacious and very versatile family home. Located in one of the finest private roads in the borough of Bromley and just ¼ mile from the excellent local shops, restaurants and facilities of Chislehurst Village, Chislehurst Station is also under a mile away and provides regular services into Central London

This fantastic house retains many original features including attractive fireplaces and parquet wood flooring and enjoys a beautiful and secluded garden to the rear complete with outdoor pool, summer house and pool room.

A large drive leads up to the imposing and attractive front elevations and accesses the double garage to the side with formal lawns to the front.
Double front doors open into the impressive entrance hall which provides access to the sitting room and personal door to the double garage. The bright and airy sitting room opens out on to a glazed conservatory and has double doors that flow in to the generous dining room. This whole area makes for a very versatile and open entertaining space

Furthermore the ground floor accommodation includes a good size kitchen with breakfast area, utility room, cloakroom and a TV room that benefit from doors that lead onto the garden. A lovely feature is the wood panelled snooker room complete with bar facilities.

To the first floor there are five generous bedrooms four with balconies and three with en suites. The master bedroom also includes a spacious a dressing room and enjoys viewings over the gardens and pool to the rear. In addition there is a family bathroom and further staircase leading to the loft room.

The current owners have had planning permission to extend the house substantially which although lapsed in 2013 could potentially be granted again if re-submitted. The lapsed permission was to add a basement floor incorporating a gym, wine store and cinema room whilst enlarging two of the existing bedrooms to the front on the first floor to create two further bedrooms with ensuite facilities and dressing areas. The loft space would be extended to take advantage of the large footprint of the building to allow for a further very large bedroom again with an en-suite and a spare room or large dressing room.

Wilderness Road is within walking distance to the high street and Chislehurst Ponds, there are numerous well regarded restaurants bistros and coffee houses plus an array of other local shops including boutique style retailers as well as essential stores such as Sainsbury's.

For car travel, the M20 with access to the coast, Ebbsfleet and channel tunnel & M25 junction 3 are within 6 miles. Gatwick airport is approximately 45 minutes drive. There is a good selection of private, grammar and state schools in the area including, Bromley High, Babington House, Farringtons, Bickley Park, Bullers Wood, Braeside and Chislehurst and Sidcup. Energy Efficiency Rating D.
