Stunning Four Bedroom Flat in Period Property.

Originally two grand detached Victorian villas, Courtside was converted into flats and expanded in 1922 by Ted Christmas, a local master builder known for creating Arts and Crafts style homes in Forest Hill. This utterly splendid top floor, four bedroom property was among the flats purpose-built by Christmas and as such enjoys truly impressive proportions. A private retreat with its height and position at one of the far wings, it enjoys sweeping southeasterly views.

The current owners have lovingly perfected the interior, restoring the original knotty pine floorboards, installing a new bathroom with Victorian style tiling, refitting the kitchen, and upgrading the windows for modern units that retain a traditional look. The radiators have also been sympathetically replaced and more recently, a new boiler installed.

The accommodation comprises a large reception, separate kitchen, a picture perfect bathroom and four double bedrooms – two of which are used as large studies by the current owners, an ideal setup for those working from home. The flat also benefits from direct access to a walled communal garden where you can while away the summer months and hobnob with the friendly neighbours. Private off street parking adds to the list of attractions. The property is offered to the market chain-free and is ready for you to move straight in. Read More

Access is via a quiet road with no through traffic. An entrance shared with just two other flats leads you up a bright stairwell with original leaded windows. Walking into the property, the inner hall is wide and light streams in from all directions. The very lovely reception room is straight ahead with leafy views stretching far and wide, a fab Gazco coal effect inset fire, and abundant room for lounging and dining. The master bedroom, of a fine size and with tasteful neutral styling, sits next door. The kitchen comes next in line with generous countertop space, a double ceramic butler sink in front of a window overlooking the garden, expansive storage and all the other expected amenities. A door from the kitchen leads to stairs granting direct access to the garden. No need for green fingers – this lush and sunny space is looked after by a gardener as well as by some residents.

Dartmouth Road is a short stroll from your front door and has recently benefited from streetscaping including pavement widening, new trees, furniture and bike racks. A eight minute walk down this road brings you to Forest Hill Station from which a direct, above ground journey brings you to London Bridge in under 20 minutes. London Overground also serves your local station, which meets up with the Jubilee Line at Canada Water. In addition, there are several nearby bus routes including the 176 that runs 24 hours to Tottenham Court Road. It's also possible to walk to Sydenham Hill station in around 20 minutes for fast, direct above ground trains to Victoria.

You're within a stroll of Forest Hill Library, Forest Hill Pools fitness centre and a number of fantastic eateries. Dartmouth Road will keep you busy all year round. We particularly love the Dartmouth Arms and Sylvan Post Pub which was converted from a 1960s post office. If you're feeling peckish, try the highly rated Sushi Garden, BoNA Sourdough Pizza or Aga's Little Deli. Grocery shopping is also a doddle thanks to newly opened zero-waste grocery shop Beetroot & Beans (run by Aga of aforementioned deli) as well as a large Sainsbury’s and butcher a bit further down the road.

Saving the best for last, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to access to nature. Baxter Field is just up the road and has recently been upgraded, with new benches and playground equipment. Albion Millennium Green, another very nearby green space, has a more secluded feel to it. There are always new footpaths to explore in Sydenham and Dulwich Woods, which are great for peaceful strolls among mature trees. Sydenham Wells Park, Mayow Park, Dulwich Park, Crystal Palace Park and the gardens of the Horniman Museum all provide further variety for picnicking, sports and jogging. Read Less
