Heavenly 3 bed detached home with elite architectural heritage. Wrap-around decked terrace, first floor terrace on stilts, wall-to-wall/floor-to-ceiling windows, kitchen/diner, exposed floorboards, raised flowerbeds, off-street parking, near trains/Overground, great local schools, thriving high street, chain-free sale and the best position in the Close - tucked right at the bottom. Planning has been granted to extend the house if you wish to.

Swiss architect Walter Segal is famous for developing a sustainable self-build technique using wooden frames to build houses, and Walters Way was completed just after he died in the 1980s. He is widely admired by many architects and journalists, Tom Dyckhoff and Kevin Mc Cloud both publicly exalt Segal as a design hero. This small cul-de-sac can be visited during London Open House weekend for those with a nose for pioneering architecture.

This home has a family-orientated kitchen/diner and around the corner is a reception that opens out to a wrap-around decked terrace. Two bedrooms have direct access to the first-floor stilted terrace. The bathroom has well-chosen features while the kitchen has integrated appliances (dishwasher, fridge/freezer) and a stainless steel built-in oven/hob. Glazing is abundant - many rooms have double aspects and huge windows. The garden is heaving with a mix of subtropical and traditional cottage-style plants, the lawn is large enough for a friendly game of footie and you can seat plenty of guests on any of the patio areas.

Planning has been granted to extend the house and add two further bedrooms. Please ask us and we'll be happy to show you.

The location is superb, you're a short walk to trains (London Bridge, Victoria) and London Overground links (Canada Water, Shoreditch, Hoxton, Dalston Junction and Highbury & Islington) at Honor Oak Park. Local primary schools include Fairlawn, Stillness and St Francesca Cabrini or The Forest School, The Sydenham School and two 'outstanding' Harris academies at Peckham Rye. You have an excellent choice of eateries, cafés, bars and independent shops in Honor Oak, Forest Hill and nearby East Dulwich. Open green spaces are also abundant with One Tree Hill, Brenchley Gardens, Peckham Rye and Horniman Museum and Gardens all being close.
