Full description

Tenure: Freehold

On the market for the first time in 50 years, this much loved family home is now looking for a new owner. As you pull up outside this detached bungalow, you'll be pleased to find there is a garage, so you can keep your car nice and dry, from any inclement weather. Walking up the stairs to the front door, you will catch your first glimpse of the breathtaking views across the valley - certainly something to put a smile on your face every time you return home, reminding you of why you chose to live here.

Once inside, the lounge/diner creates a good social space to have friends over for a dinner party or for when the family gather around the table for a great Sunday roast. The kitchen/breakfast room is on hand if you need to nip in and get anything that you have forgotten or grab another glass of wine to go with your meal.

The property gives you the opportunity to put on your own stamp. One of the options you may want to consider is turning the current storage room into a bath- room. Alternatively, you may wish to make it into a utility room, freeing up even more space in the kitchen/ breakfast room.

The inner lobby leads out onto the patio area, which is a great outside space to entertain on those long summer evenings. Following the steps up to the rest of the garden, you can sit and admire those lovely views again, helping you to relax after a long day.

What the Owner says:

Having lived here for many years, it holds a lot of happy memories, bringing up a family and entertaining.

We did do lots to the property over the years but I know that it now needs some updating to suit the new owner's tastes.

I have loved the fact that I am only a short walk away to the shops, restaurants and local amenities as well as being able to catch a bus or train into Croydon or London.

I will be sad to leave and will miss watching the beautiful views change with the seasons. I hope the new owners love the home as much as we have and that they enjoy many happy years here.
