Full description

Hidden gem of a terrace situated on a quaint residential road tucked just away from the hustle and bustle of Sydenham High Street that you would never know was there.. On entry its hard not to be impressed by the improvements made by the current owner, with a stylishly decorated through lounge / diner with period fireplace , leading through to a modern kitchen with slate flooring and high end integrated appliances,additional cloak room and doors onto an Indian paved low maintenance patio garden perfect for those summer months. To the first floor you will find three double bedrooms, one with en suite and a contemporary bathroom. If all that does not leave you salivating then there is also the hidden benefit of a fully refurbished basement room which is ideal for use as either a forth bedroom or a games room. Viewing is highly recommended.


Less than 200 years ago Sydenham was a sleepy hamlet in the Kent countryside. All changed in 1852 when the Directors of the Railway company had the bright idea of buying and moving the Crystal Palace built by St Joseph Paxton for the Great Exhibition in 1851 from Hyde Park to Sydenham. Their idea was to encourage Londoners to take a day out 'in the country' to visit the new enlarged Crystal Palace set in its own pleasure gardens complete with pools, fountains and even a Dinosaur Theme Park. A sort of combination of Disneyland and Jurassic Park!
This transformed Sydenham into a fashionable Victorian town for Londoners to visit which inevitably grew and merged to now make Sydenham an integral multi-ethnic part of South East London.
The FA Cup was played here, Colour TV was invented here, the first pneumatic railway ran through Sydenham and many famous & notorious people have made it their home
In 1871 Sydenham was imortalised in the works of the exiled Camille Pissaro - the most famous of which, a view along Lawrie Park Avenue towards St Bart's Church, now hangs in the National Gallery. Other famous residents of Sydenham have included Ernest Shackleton, the Antartic explorer, Sir George Groves, compiler of the musical dictionary, and W G Grace, England's greatest cricketer.
Sydenham station has recently opened the East London tube line extension that connects Sydenham to Surrey Quays and Islington
