Delightful and Spacious Two Double Bed Flat, Two Floors, Two Bathrooms plus Garden and Share of Freehold
Cast your eyes over this fine-honed beauty; it's larger than your average cottage too! You're bound to be impressed by the super-high ceilings, lavish room proportions and abundant period features. We also think the 30ft private section of rear garden plus private front garden will drive you wild. Access it directly from your enormous, hand built kitchen/diner. There's side access from the street and you are surrounded by neighbouring gardens to the sides and rear - a truly idyllic outlook from every angle.
Spread over the entire ground and lower ground floors of this semi-detached Victorian townhouse, you are in one of Forest Hill's most desirable spots. Pretty steps lead up to the original front door (note the front garden is owned by you!) and you find the flat's entrance straight ahead. Inside you have stripped mocha stained floorboards, ice white walls and those impressive high ceilings. To your right are bespoke bookshelves while ahead is the enormous kitchen diner - swathed in natural light. Original floorboards are found in here; you have a large dining area with French doors that open out to the wonderful rear garden. To the left of the room is a shaker style kitchen with polar white units and dark wood handles. Cleverly designed, there's even a tall, slim mop cupboard, ample open shelves in white wood and a breakfast bar with space for a dishwasher and washing machine. Worktops are extra wide (90mm) plus a five ring range will make any chef smile. Notice too, the lovely wooden shutters to the kitchen window and French doors. There is the potential to extend this room out onto the garden which could create extra living space and allowing the current reception to be used as a third bedroom - draft plans have been drawn up! (Subject to necessary consents).
Following the hall round, you find the stairs to the lower ground drop at the centre of the flat. Towards this end of the second hallway are floor to ceiling push 'n release storage cupboards in white. There is also more storage behind a hidden glass door. The room ahead is the guest bedroom which overlooks a neighbour's garden. There's a fitted wardrobe, oatmeal carpet and sweet arched alcove. Next door is a pretty bathroom with traditionally styled suite while ahead is a grand reception. Facing the street outside, you have a large bay window with wooden blinds, ample fitted bookshelves to each alcove and a fireplace with pretty wood surround. Original stripped floorboards continue in here and walls are a sumptuous, cosy, capuccino shade.
Where the stairs land on the lower ground is a coat and shoe area before the bedroom ahead. Mirroring the reception above, this also enjoys a bay window with a sweet side window to the right wall. This is a superb size for a master bedroom and has the added luxury of an en suite shower room with w.c.
Location? Your nearest station is Forest Hill for trains to London Bridge - a mere 3 minute walk. The London Overground line has also arrived, vastly increasing the area's connectivity to the tube network and easy peasy access to Canada Water, Highbury & Islington and Dalston. Buses are a plenty on London Road and there are new eateries popping up every month! Sainsbury's is only a 1 minute walk. The Signal (formerly The Hobb) is moments away on this road too, ideal for Sunday lunch! For further eating and retail opportunities, fabulous East Dulwich (and well-loved Lordship Lane) is but a 10 minute walk, however in less than a minute's walk you are in central Forest Hill and all it has to offer. Green space? The Horniman Gardens is seriously close for a walk or a kick-about especially on a Saturday when there is a Farmer's Market. Sydenham Hill Wood, Mayow Park, Crystal Palace and the fabulous Dulwich Park are all easily reached - all within a 10 minute drive.
