This vast five bedroom period charmer is elegantly spread over four spacious floors and includes a wealth of original charm. Well positioned in The Gardens Conservation Area, the property enjoys high ceilings, fireplaces and a beautifully restored cut-string staircase. The newel post, balustrades and mahogany handrail have been expertly re-crafted to the original design. The accommodation comprises five double bedrooms, two reception rooms, large kitchen/diner, shower room and large family bathroom. A storage cellar and two spacious loft spaces will house all your beloved tat. Oakhurst Grove is a mature, peaceful no-through road within an easy stroll of Lordship Lane.

The entrance hall has a dado and picture rails and some very well preserved cornice work and corbels. The staircase, expertly restored by the ‘London Wood Turners’ takes pride of place.

Separated centrally by wide double doors, both ends have access to the hall and stunning original working fireplaces, each with tiled hearths. There are two ceiling roses and more decorative cornicing to enjoy. A square bay of sash windows to the front and French doors to the rear supply light and views.

Towards the end of the hall you find access to the cellar and the laundry cupboard. The kitchen-diner offers comfortable cooking and dining space. There's a ceramic one and a half bowl sink and drainer and the units and work tops are all made from Iroko. Further delights include handmade bespoke kitchen worktops made from reclaimed science work tops, a travertine floor and large side aspect sash window. The dual-fuel range cooker has five rings and fits snugly on the right and there's a contemporary oblong wall radiator. A utility area precedes access to your generous garden which is well stocked with leafiness, including a beautiful avenue of lime trees. Read More
