Incredibly Spacious Edwardian Two Bedder With Garden and Studio - CHAIN FREE.

We're in love! This double fronted Edwardian two bed beauty boasts every advantage. Vast rooms sizes, high ceilings, period features and a beautifully private rear garden with studio make it the perfect home. The styling is picture perfect - think elegant Farrow and Ball wall shades and well maintained period charm. A private entrance adds to the excitement. Bishopsthorpe is part of a much sought after collection of classy period homes within easy reach of Sydenham and Forest Hill.

The exterior sits confidently behind a pretty garden populated with trees, shrubs and flowers. Twin original doors open to a neat porch and onward through original glass pane doors to the carpeted hall. The original arched wooden architrave has been painted to match the walls - such a lovely greeting. The reception will knock your socks off, not least for its positively cavernous proportions. A wide bay recesses on the left wall to offer an open fireplace flanked on with side with tall frosted sash windows. Three further front aspect sash offer a sweeping streetscape and oodles of light. The floorboards are painted antique white and there's a rich petrol blue feature wall - yum! Cast iron school house radiators finish it off nicely.

Across the hall you meet a similarly jaw dropping master bedroom. Original cornice work and stripped wooden floors make it simple and tasteful. A second beautifully sized double bedroom faces rear with French doors to the garden. There are more simple cornicing, picture rails and ceiling rose to admire. Two steps leads down from the hall to a vast kitchen/diner that sprawls eagerly 8 metres into the full width of the house. You'll seat a banquet! Your kitchen has thick cut oak counters and modern cabinets. The sink and drainer are ceramic. Appliances include a fourth ring gas hob, oven and integrated dishwasher. Two sets of bi-fold arched wooden doors leads to your beautiful bathroom and storage area respectively.Read More

For a bigger shop you can drive down the hill to Bell Green in only five minutes where you will find a HUGE Sainsbury's. For a more cerebrally challenging day out you can't do better than a trip to the Horniman's Museum with its fantastic collections and brilliant workshops in the school holidays. The ever popular East Dulwich is but a short bus hop and the bars, cafés and restaurants around Crystal Palace are also easily reached. Finally, if you need to walk the dog you are spoilt for choice with green spaces; Mayow Park (a short stroll), lovely Sydenham Wells, Crystal Palace park and Sydenham Hill woods to name the nearest.
