Full description

Hunters Exclusive act as the vendors sole agents in the sale of this property.

The property is located on Sunderland road which is notably one of Forest Hill premier roads.

The road is wide, tree lined and offers a mix of property styles, however it’s reputed for double fronted, period houses which have become increasingly rare in recent years. This is one such house.


Sunderland Road is in proximity of four schools which are rated in Ofsted's top 10%. In our experience this is quite unusual and a substantial feature of the location. The four schools are as follows however please note that there are several other highly rated schools locally too:

St Dunstan's College - Church of England, mixed, primary and secondary. This is a private school.

Fairlawn - Public, mixed, primary, rated Ofsted "Outstanding".

Kilmorie - Public, mixed, primary, rated Ofsted "Good".

Dalmain - Public, mixed, primary, rated Ofsted "Good".


Located approximately 0.4 miles from Forest Hill station which offers services from both London Overground and Southern Rail some of the following travel times are available:

London Bridge in approximately 17 minutes.

Canary Wharf in approximately in 23 minutes.

Shoreditch High Street in approximately 22 minutes.

Victoria station in approximately 30 minutes.
Alongside the train links you will find a number of bus routes from approximately 0.1 miles away on the south circular which includes routes 122 and 185 to Crystal Palace and Victoria to name a few.


Offering approximately 2800 sq ft / 260 sqm, the house features some room sizes that we consider substantial in comparison to many others. As an example the living room is almost 19ft in length.

Due to the wide plot upon which the house sits the front drive is almost 45 ft in width and can fit several cars. The rear garden is equally as wide (possibly wider) and is approximately 72 ft in length.

Subject to consents (buyers are asked to perform their own due diligence in this regard. We are happy to put buyers in touch with planning advisers and local architects), the house would be well suited to further development. We thought a rear extension connecting the outside space of the garden to the indoors would be a significant improvement if a change of layout was desired, although we suspect, due to the size of the property and garden, there would be a multitude of options for buyers wishing to develop the house further.

In addition the loft could offer additional development potential or a substantial storage space.

The house also offers an array of period features which include, fireplaces, high skirting boards, cornice's, picture rails, sash windows, bay windows and other details to be enjoyed on viewing.


As well as having a Sainsbury’s, Forest Hill is well served with a variety of high quality independent shops, including a renowned traditional butcher. There are also gastro pubs, a gym, cafés, delis and restaurants to name but a few of its excellent amenities.

The Sylvan Post, a well-known pub, Canvas and Cream and Stag and Bow all variously host, music events, exhibitions and craft days.

If you ever desire a further choice of drinking and eating establishments, then the vibrancy of Dulwich can be found a walk or bus ride away.


Off the high street in the town centre you'll find Forest Hill pools and library both of which have undergone refurbishment. Forest Hill pools is known for its swimming pool facilities but is also a local leisure centre with a gym and fitness classes.

The Horniman Museum and Gardens is a well-known local point of interest and can be found just beyond the town centre. It’s recognized as popular family entertainment venue and has been featured in "Time Out". With regular events such as a farmers market, live music and seasonal festivals to name a few, there is always something to enjoy at the Horniman.
