Outstanding Four Bedroom Semi Detached House with Huge Garden - CHAIN FREE

Sitting directly opposite the entrance to Sydenham Wells Park is this large, semi detached house, built between the wars. It’s a truly loved family home and Longton Avenue itself is a beautiful, wide, tree-lined road set within close proximity to good schools, green spaces and transport links only a 10-12 minute walk.

The house is set well back from the road, on a slight upward slope. Curving through a pretty front garden, the path takes you up through the front door and into a wide hallway. The first reception sits on your right and is bay fronted and has lots of alcove shelving with an open fireplace. A window seat is built into the bay which itself draws in lots of light. Behind is another reception stretching the entire width of the house, with a dining area on one side and sitting room on the other. From here you can see and access the garden, but if it's too chilly to go out, the gas coal-effect fireplace will keep you snug. Beyond is a huge family kitchen with a built-in larder on your right, then a window onto the patio and finally a door to the garden. In the cooking area itself are chunky wooden floors and immaculate units arranged on three sides of the room. A lovely wide picture window frames the garden while you wash up. Back into the hall, behind the stairs, you have a utility room with sink, plumbing for a washing machine and even space for coats and wellies. Just outside the utility room is access to a nifty cellar.Read More

On the first floor is a bathroom sitting on the right (with both shower cubicle and separate tub). A few steps further up lead to the first floor landing where you’ll find three double bedrooms. The first double overlooks the garden with two windows and built-in wardrobe and the second double also has garden views and an original cupboard in one alcove. The master bedroom is bay fronted and has an original double cupboard in one alcove and then there's an en suite four-piece bathroom with a small bay window over the front garden. Up open, wooden treads and you will find a converted attic - a bright and airy double bedroom with access to more storage space in the roof.

The garden is a thing of beauty - the patio runs along the back reception and round to the front of the kitchen, taking you to the start of a long path running up one side of the lawn. The lawn area stretches over 150 feet – it’s enormous and will be a joy for the kids and/or pets.

This area of Sydenham is highly coveted. Sydenham Wells Park (officially opened in 1901) takes its name from the medicinal springs discovered in Sydenham in the mid 17th century; several of the 12 former wells lie within the grounds of the park, and the springs are still active today! Not only are you literally next to the park, you are just a 10 minute walk from Sydenham station with frequent trains to London Bridge and Victoria (the London Overground connection is hugely popular too). Explore Sydenham Woods on a quiet Sunday, and when you're done, chill out at the popular Dulwich Wood House for a relaxing drink and / or bite to eat. Read Less
