Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This charming 1930s semi-detached house sits at the top of Duncombe Hill - planting you very close to fabulous Blythe Hill Fields and providing stunning London skyline views from the back of the house. The ground floor is home to an enormous kitchen/diner, study and two receptions (one of which opens to a lush garden of approximately 100ft plus there is a large front garden too). Upstairs are five bedrooms and three bathrooms. Treats include landscaped gardens and a large outbuilding which is home to a gym and an office/studio. Stillness and Kilmorie Primary Schools, Honor Oak and Forest Hill town centres and stations (both have the London Overground line connection) are within walking distance.

You enter into a central hall through a wooden front door with tasteful stained glass surrounds. To your right you'll find a study (perfect spot for reading) with a view over the landscaped front garden. On the opposite side of the hall is the first reception. It has a lovely bow shaped window to the front and a wood burning stove taking pride position. The décor is stylish and sympathetic with wooden floors and white walls providing a blank canvas. Just behind is the second reception. It has another wood burner, tonnes of space and a lovely 30s style arch preceding double doors onto the garden. The room travels around to the right into a neat dining room with a view over the garden before arriving in the kitchen. These three rooms are all open plan which creates a wonderful flow for growing families. In the kitchen you'll find chic industrial style units, wooden worktops and three bright windows. There's plenty of prep space and the six ring stove will make meal times a dream! Storage space for this floor is taken care of in the hall (under the stairs).

Upstairs you'll find four bedrooms arranged over the first floor. When you arrive on the first landing, a few steps up to the right reveals two bedrooms (each with fitted wardrobes). On the opposite side of the house and first up is a family bathroom with roll top tub and a hand basin set into an old treadle sewing machine - what a nice touch! Two huge bedrooms sit on the far left side. The rear facing room has fabulous views while the front bedroom (master) has a bow window and an en suite bathroom. A final climb to the second floor and you'll find bedroom number five set in the eaves. There are sloping ceilings, wooden floors and more great views.

The garden stretches to over 100 feet and has a section for every conceivable use. There is a decked area for al fresco dining, lawn for kids and/or dogs and a quite spot at the far end with an outbuilding. In here you'll find a gym, office and a large storage space.

Location? This spot is a goodie. Honor Oak Park station and high street is a 5 minute walk and Forest Hill is only a little further (a 10-12 minute walk). Green space is abundant in this area - Blythe Hill Fields, One Tree Hill and Horniman Gardens being three local favourite green spaces. Schools? Stillness and Kilmorie are well-liked and very local to you here. If you're after groceries, Sainsbury's in Forest Hill would be the first choice. If you're eating out or showing off your new home and area to friends and family, pop to The Honor Oak pub on Brockley Rise which has a great beer garden! Alternatively, your local Indian restaurant, Babur, not only one of the best in London, but in the country, is a walk away.
