Breathtaking Six Bedroom Detached Residence in Prime Position - CHAIN FREE.

This house is well placed in one of the most prestigious postcodes this side of the Thames. Champion Hill sweeps between Denmark Hill and Grove Lane. It is a quiet thoroughfare and has an intriguing history and interesting architectural mix. These Victorian homes very rarely hit the market and it’s clear to see why – inside you’ll spy a staggering 5000 square feet of space! Brimming with character and charm, the rooms inside are of magnificent proportions with many original features and swathed in natural light. The beautiful mature garden measures around 119 feet with a large shed at the bottom and there are six double bedrooms, seven receptions, three bathrooms, two kitchens, two rear balconies, cloak room, stunning hallways and tandem garage.

Set back from the street, park the car(s) in the driveway (space for 4 or more!) and pause to admire the façade of this house – it’s very appealing; red bricked, draped in wisteria and has flashes of colour with stained glass windows on the upper floors. You’ll spy a garage to the right hand side (which has access both directly into the house and the back garden). Step through the arched, double front door and into an elegant entrance hall with solid oak herringbone parquet floor and large cloak room to the rear. Turning left through another attractive arch leads to a magnificent hall/first reception room with solid oak flooring, a shooting ceiling and stunning staircase with stained glass window. From here, double doors lead into a front-facing, formal reception (normally used as a dining room) with solid wood floors, impressive ceiling height and original fireplace to the right. From this room you can walk directly into the spacious and well appointed kitchen next door (also access via the hall) with ample work space, an island and country style units, equipped to handle family meals with ease. A side aspect door is great for taking the rubbish out. To the rear of the ground floor are two further large and elegant reception rooms with solid wood floors and large windows giving grand views of the garden. One has a fantastic bay window and both rooms have access to a large and pretty balcony (lovely for sitting out) which in turn leads down to the 119ft x 57ft garden.

The lower ground floor plays host to some fantastic additional space. Down here you’ll find a 'summer kitchen' (with direct access to the garden ideal for BBQs), utility room with loo, further storage rooms and three further large reception rooms currently arranged as a home office/children's workspace, games room and and, best of all, further living room. There is easy access through double glass doors onto the sunny terrace - this floor would make an ideal teenager’s mini-flat or au-pair quarters perhaps? The rest of the house is arranged over the top two floors with three big double bedrooms on the first floor. The master sits across the front of the house and has a fantastic en suite bathroom with shower, bath, twin sinks and storage cupboards. Bedrooms two and three each face rear with beautiful garden views. There is a second balcony leading from the left hand room where you can enjoy those views just that little bit more. There is separate attractive blue tiled bath and shower room sitting just along the hall. Not to be overlooked is a generous and convenient walk-in airing cupboard. The second floor has three more bedrooms (six in total) with sloping ceilings and pretty fireplaces in each room. A third bathroom and a run of large built-in mirror-fronted wardrobes in the hall are sure to make life easier!Read More
