Elegant Semi Detached Edwardian Five Bedder With Pretty Garden

We just love these marvellous Edwardian homes. They're awash with generous, symmetrical rooms, period features and fantastic high ceilings. This wonderful semi-detached example has been gifted a picture-perfect finish. The decor is sympathetic and crisp and marries perfectly with the numerous original details. A tanked and tiled cellar supplies unbeatable storage and there's a beautifully presented rear garden with paved patio to enjoy too. A top floor master suite is the real cherry on the cake! The accommodation comprises five double bedrooms (master with en suite and dressing room), two large reception rooms, huge kitchen/diner, two shower rooms, bathroom and utility cellar. Earlsthorpe Road is part of a much sought-after collection of classy period homes in the 'Thorpes Conservation Area', within easy reach of Sydenham and Forest Hill. You're within an easy stroll of every conceivable amenity and transport links abound at nearby Sydenham Station.

A wrought iron gate leads inward and up a set of steps to find a front garden, nicely stocked with mature greenery. The side access point allows for easy bin and bike storage. An inner porch leads next to a wide bright hall with feature fireplace, stained glass windows and space for a seating arrangement. It's a very usable space. Step right to find the first glorious reception room. It boasts fine proportions and a fireplace with tiled hearth and wooden mantel. Picture rails and simple coving enhance the period credentials further. A second, even larger, reception comes next along the hall. A period mantel with coal effect gas fire takes centre stage and there is access to the rear patio - great for the summer gathering! Steps leads past the stairs in the hall down to a handy shower room and side entrance point. Your tanked cellar is also accessed from here. It has modern floor tiles, counter space, sink and plumbing for the washing machine. Ubiquitous recessed storage will reduce any amount of clutter. Read More

Back on the ground floor, find the impressively proportioned kitchen/diner stretching confidently to supply unbeatable cooking, dining and entertaining space. A granite topped island doubles as a breakfast bar and there is plenty of counter space on the far side. Appliances include a fantastic six ring gas range and integrated dishwasher. The dining space is bathed in light from all sides and leads, via French doors, to the garden where you'll enjoy a healthy array of well stocked leafiness.

Your first landing is carpeted and bright with more wonderful stained-glass detail. A large front facing double bedroom with retro cork floor tiles and picture rails peers over the road through two original sash windows. A second, similarly sized bedroom shares the front spot. This room has white painted timber floors, feature fireplace and some rather fetching wall paper on the chimney breast. Your third proper double bedroom faces rear over the garden wth fitted storage and another magical feature fireplace and ornate mantel. Steps from the landing lead down to a family bathroom with slipper bath and separate shower, heated towel rail and wash hand basin. Opposite this you'll find a separate wc and the fourth bedroom. Currently laid out as a study it has a dainty feature fireplace and more garden views. Bedroom five is a most impressive space with lavish en suite bathroom (with additional walk-in shower) and separate dressing room. Recessed eaves storage dot themselves generously about.

The house is less than five minutes’ walk to Sydenham station, with fast, direct and frequent trains into London Bridge in only 15 minutes. The fab London Overground line also greatly increases your connectivity by putting Sydenham on the tube map. You can be at Canary Wharf (via Canada Water) in under 20 minutes. Sydenham Road is full of lots of useful local shops including a bookshop, gastropub, wonderful Nepalese restaurant, gallery, cafés, greengrocer, health food shop, bakery, fishmonger, butcher and local Sainsbury's, Tesco and Lidl. There are excellent local schools and access to independent schools in both Sydenham and Dulwich, just a short drive. The Greyhound Pub takes a welcome centre stage - offering top notch cuisine and plenty of craft ale options. 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.
