Property description

Tenure: Freehold

From the original tiled floor of the hallway to the high ceilings and cornicing that feature throughout, this graceful three storey family home retains a wealth of period charm and character. Wonderfully lit by wide bay windows, two generously sized sitting rooms with distinguished fireplaces offer an abundance of space to spend time together as a family. Perfectly suited for both family meals and entertaining, the beautifully presented kitchen is a notable highlight. Sympathetically styled with Shaker-style cabinets and solid wood countertops providing plenty of storage and workspace, it is well-appointed with a butler sink and range cooker. A traditional log burner nestles within the large chimney breast to add a classic focal point to the dining area, while French doors open onto the superbly sized conservatory allowing you to create one open plan space. A separate utility room has space for your laundry appliances.

The flow of natural light continues on the first floor where an original fireplace and elegant cornicing in the principal bedroom remind you of the history and heritage of this home. A second bedroom combines the warm tones of a wood floor and wide bay windows for a calm and peaceful feel, and two further bedrooms on this floor benefit from fitted wardrobes. Upstairs, there is a double bedroom and a large attic room which add to the marvellous sense of space and versatility that this Victorian home has to offer. A stylish family shower room completes the first floor accommodation. On the top floor, the family bathroom with its freestanding roll top bath, exposed brick chimney breast and walk-in shower adds the perfect finishing touch.


Located on a popular residential road, close to local amenities and very convenient for train and tram transport. Sandilands and Lloyd Park tram stations are within walking distance (1.6m and 0.9m) and central Croydon offers a good range of shops, bars and restaurants and is about a mile and a half away. The wide open spaces of Lloyd Park are nearby and local golf courses include Addington Palace and Croham Hurst. There is fast access 3.7 miles away to the A23/M23/M25, motorway network & Gatwick Airport. Excellent schools for children of all ages are within easy reach including Croydon High, Trinity School, Royal Russell, Whitgift and Old Palace.

TRAIN SERVICES: South Croydon Station is 0.3 miles with fast direct train services to London Bridge and Victoria in circa 20 minutes.


Behind a pretty walled garden the distinguished facade of this Victorian home with its bay windows and covered doorway creates a hugely elegant first impression and hints at its expansive footprint. Set back from the tree lined road a garage supplies convenient off-road parking.

Generating a superior space to relax in the sun and unwind, an enviably sized conservatory opens onto a broad paved patio that's ideal for al fresco meals. Bordered by a wonderful selection of mature trees and shrubs, the enclosed lawn is a lovely space for children to play.
