Full description

Tenure: Freehold

You won't find many homes as large or lovely in the area. Such epic proportions are almost unheard of, made possible here as the enormous 5-room basement mirrors the floors above. As rooms on all floors match those above/below them, you gain even space throughout the house. What's particularly exciting about this house is the ability to convert the cellar/basement into a separate dwelling (with planning permission), a nanny/granny/noisy teen flat or create a cinema, gym, and playrooms - you really could do them all. Living space on the ground floor is already enviable with a double reception, further reception, kitchen/breakfast room, family room and a conservatory.

There are lots of period features - matching fireplaces in the double reception and a working fire with marble surround in the reception across the hall. Intricate cornicing, high skirting and picture rails remain. Where floorboards aren't on show, well-chosen modern flooring is.

Bedrooms are all doubles, the landing splits and there are two shower rooms and there's also a separate loo. The garden has side access from the street, faces directly south and measures a lose-the-kids 131ft in length. This is one of the most becoming family homes we've seen for a while.

Forest Hill trains travel to London Bridge and Victoria while London Overground services link to Canada Water, Shoreditch, Hoxton, Dalston Junction and Highbury & Islington. Try The Dartmouth ARms, The Signal or The Sylvan Post for food and drinks, St David's or Canvas and Cream for light lunch and coffee and either delicatessen or the artisan buther for fridge treats. There's a Sainsbury's, contemporary leisure centre with a pool and a good selection of independent shops. Europe's largest Sainsbury's is a 5-minute drive at Bell Green. Local state schools include Haseltine ('outstanding"), Kilmorie and Perrymount (both "good"). Older kids fare well at The Sydenham School, The Forest School and Kingsdale. Some of the UK's top independents are a short drive (Alleyn's, JAGS, Dulwich College) while Sydenham High and St Dunstan's are even closer.
