Huge Two Bedroom Period Conversion With OSP and Wonderful Shared Garden - CHAIN FREE.

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. Part of the exquisite original structure, this utterly splendid top floor, two bedroom property enjoys truly impressive proportions. It enjoys tasteful décor, splendid rooms sizes and sweeping, leafy views to front and rear. The accommodation comprises a large reception, separate modern kitchen, two vast double bedrooms and a contemporary bathroom. Throw in off-street parking and a vast shared garden and you have a clear winner! An 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.

A long leafy drive leads up to the building which enjoys some gorgeous period and 1920's detail. A grand set of steps lead up to your communal entrance where the hallway invites you upward to the second floor. Your inner hall is a fine size with hard-wearing Seagrass flooring and neutral decor. Dead ahead is the impressively proportioned reception which peers front through a most wonderful triptych of original wooden casement windows. This affords a wonderful sense of light and airiness. There's oodles of low level storage and bespoke integrated shelving and real wooden parquet floor tiles.

The first of your wonderful double bedrooms sits next door with a lovely peaceful view over the shared garden. Fitted storage ensures no excuse for mess and there's more quality Seagrass flooring and neutral decor. The kitchen is accessed off the hall and boasts hand-made terracotta floor tiles, thick cut granite counters, ceramic sink, five ring gas hob and oven. Appliances include washing machine, dishwasher, fridge and integrated freezer. An original door opens rear to the fire escape on which there sits an impressive array of greenery. This leads downward to the gobsmackingly vast communal garden. It's a lovely spot to enjoy hobnobbing with the friendly neighbours. The second, even bigger double bedroom sits on the far side of the kitchen with tonnes more space and fitted storage. There's a pretty feature fireplace and more leafy rear views. Last but not least comes your bathroom which has a slate flooring, a modern white suite, tumbled marble wall tiles and dressing rooms lights around your integrated mirror - we're definitely ready for our close up!

In addition to Forest Hill Station, there are several nearby bus routes including the 176 that runs 24 hours to Tottenham Court Road. The 197 on Dartmouth Road runs to Croydon and Peckham. The 122 will whisk you to Lewisham and Crystal Palace and the 185 runs to both Victoria and Lewisham. It's also possible to walk to Sydenham Hill station in around 20 minutes for fast, direct above ground trains to Victoria. 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. 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
