Impressively Extended Five Bedroom Period Home With Amazing South Facing Garden.

This excellent five bedroom period home really has it all! Deftly augmented to include a huge contemporary kitchen/diner, five lovely bedrooms (master en suite) and a beautiful double reception, it's a home built for spreading your wings wide. Completely refurbished from tip to toe over the last five years, the property boasts Gaggenhau appliances, bespoke kitchen cabinetry, Fired Earth tiling and underfloor heating. The loft extension supplies a wonderful, bright and spacious addition. The decor throughout is picture perfect enjoying beautiful complimentary 'Farrow and Ball' and 'Little Greene' tones. You'll spy a healthy sprinkling of original period features too - fireplaces, cornicing and dado rails to name a few. Generous and beautifully presented gardens to front and rear further entice - it's not hard to imagine those summer gatherings. Your glass-topped kitchen extension is flooded with south facing-light for an unbeatable dining experience.

The location is as impressive. Beautiful Norwood Park is a stone's throw away with its mature trees and striking views across our fair city. You're within seconds of the abundant amenities of Gipsy Hill and less than a 20 minute stroll to bountiful Crystal Palace. Transport-wise you’re 8 minutes amble from Gipsy Hill station which has swift, regular services to London Victoria and also Crystal Palace for the fab London Overground Line.

A smart enclosing wall complementing the brickwork fronts the garden which has plenty of expertly chosen shrubs and plants. A recessed portico with original tiling frames the original door. This greets you warmly with elegant stained glass panes and the brass knocker set is suitably lovely. Inward to the hall, you find dado rails and stripped timber floors - a theme in abundance throughout. The original stairs has matching stripped treads and white risers - yum! Head left to find the double reception spans an impressive depth with either end donning a most elegant period feature fireplace. Both enjoy decorative hoods and more elegant tiling. The front aspect bay window has frosted lower panes and there's picture rails overhead for good measure. A door to the rear leads out to the side return and garden.

Further along the hall you meet an understairs storage point - great for the Dyson and Mr Muscle. A recessed sliding door opens from here to your gloriously extended kitchen/diner which encompasses almost 300 sq ft of super slick contemporary fixtures and fittings. A jaw dropping run of Quartz composite counters supplies more than ample cooking space. It's a tough and stylish surface that is almost impossible to stain! Your top notch Gaggenau appliances include a five ring induction hob, fancy touch-screen microwave and steam-oven. There is an integrated dishwasher and washing machine also. Beautiful bespoke oak cabinetry and wide soft-close pan drawers will excite any chef. The dining space sits under a ceiling of skylights for the perfect morning croissant and coffee. From here, a wall of bi-fold glass doors opens full width for a fantastic sense of airiness. The garden enjoys two separate patio areas, a healthy lawn and two storage sheds. There’s abundant expertly manicured greenery to enjoy come spring and summer. Read More

Back inside, head upward to your first floor to find more wonderfully presented period charm. The huge front facing double bedroom sprawls into the full width of the house. A wide bay window overlooks the beautiful Victorian school building opposite. Complimentary 'Farrow and Ball' shades are separated at dado rail level. Your second double bedroom sits next door with a period feature fireplace, rear facing sash window and more dado rails. The doors throughout have some gorgeous brushed brass beehive handles - they're our favourite! The landing is notably well proportioned and offers another charming period feature fireplace and potential for a seating/office set-up. Your main family bathroom has dishy floor tiles, bath and double walk-in shower. A side aspect sash window keeps things bright, airy and steam-free. Bedroom three is pretty in pink and completes this floor with a rear aspect over your delightful garden. The second floor stairs dons the same treads and risers as below.

This location is tremendous! Kingswood Primary School sits opposite and was rated OFSTED Outstanding in 2013. The morning commute to the school’s charming lower site (nursery included), is a delightful 10 mins stroll through beautiful Norwood park. The much loved park is a joy whatever the season with its playground, climbing and water play areas. There are football and skate parks too to really tire them out! You'll enjoy stunning views across London from the brow of the hill. Strolling by rolling grassy slopes you'll spy woodpeckers, squirrels and other wildlife in the treetops. The high street is jam packed full of useful amenities including a GP surgery, pharmacies, hairdresser, pubs, grocers and one of the best Indian takeaways in London (Indian Dining Club) - watch those waist bands! The Gipsy Hill Tap Room provides a stylish social space - it's just off the high street. Even closer is the Paxton which has a lovely friendly vibe. There's plenty of parking on nearby Oaks Avenue.
