3 bedroom semi-detached house for sale

Old Lodge Lane, Purley

Sold STC £525,000

Property Description

Full description

Packed full of charm and character, this versatile, three bedroom semi-detached home is located on a favoured, tree lined street in Purley, and comes with the benefit of no onward chain. Ideally situated for transport links to London via either Reedham or Purley mainline station.

This three double bedroom, semi-detached home offers versatile accommodation over three floors. Configured as a traditional, 1930‘s semi-detached property, this property gains extra charm from the split level feature of each floor.  Features such as the stained glass windows in the hallway, as well as original, restored softwood flooring and exposed, ornamental wooden beams add to the character of this delightful family home.

The accommodation comprises of a through lounge and dining room along with kitchen, on the ground floor. The front aspect dining room rises via steps into the lounge complete with feature fireplace and access to the rear garden. Two generous double bedrooms are found on the first floor, with the front aspect room providing delightful views across the valley from its bay window. A recently refurbished family bathroom has a stand-alone shower, as well as a roll top bathtub, along with a separate wc.

The current owners have cleverly used the original ‘box room’ to place a staircase into the loft space, which has now been converted into the third bedroom. Maximizing the space they have also created in-built storage under the new staircase. Continuing the theme of construction of the rest of the property, the third floor and final bedroom is also split level, which would easily allow for separation into two bedrooms rather than one suite.There is also a further wc on the third floor.


The rear garden offers a tranquil space, with mature borders and flower beds. Accessed directly from the lounge or kitchen is a patio area running the width of the property, with stairs rising to a secondary patio,perfect for entertaining on summer evenings. The rest of the garden is mainly laid to lawn, rising gently to a secluded area bordered by conifers. A further level area ideal for seating has the feel of a tree house, with stunning views to the other side of the valley. At the top of the garden is the detached garage/workshop, accessed via a service road to the rear of the property. Due to the gradient of the plot, the garage is complemented by a basement room,with internal staircase, adjacent to the secluded seating area in the garden.


The property is situated in a popular tree lined road with bus route leading to Purley and Sutton whilst the M23/M25 interchange is at Hooley with access to Heathrow, Gatwick and the south coast.  Reedham Station is within a mile or so with trains to London Bridge and Victoria.  There is a choice of leisure and golf clubs including Reedham Park tennis club, Coulsdon Manor Golf Course and Dynamics Gym.
