Perfectly Charming Four/Five Bedroom Period Home With Abundant Original Charm - CHAIN FREE.

Simply a joy! Boasting high ceilings, sympathetic styling, wonderful original features including fireplaces, cornicing and ceiling roses, this four and a half bedroom Victorian home ticks all the boxes. The accommodation, spread over three spacious floors, promises two large reception rooms, kitchen/diner, conservatory, four impressive double bedrooms (master en suite), single bedroom/study, bathroom, wc and shower room. Abundant bespoke storage and shelving sit seamlessly and you'll just love the tasteful and timeless decor and beautifully aged timber floors. The area is leafy, mature and much loved by all. Forest Hill station is a mere 15 minutes by foot for fast and regular services to London Bridge and Victoria and the popular London Overground line. Kilmorie Primary School is around five minute stroll and enjoys an outstanding Ofsted rating. The very lovely Blythe Hill is close by for leafy R&R and some really splendid views.

The wisteria-clad, red bricked exterior sits behind a leafy paved front garden with mature hedging and wrought iron gate. An arched recessed portico with original tiling to left and right leads to the original door - painted teal and with original stained glass. Your inner hall introduces the timeless styling, crisp white walls and dark painted floor boards. Ornate cornicing sits overhead. The double reception is a positively cavernous space with twin period fireplaces. The room is separated by wide original doors and enjoys a wide front aspect bay window and garden access to the rear. A stunning integrated mirror flanked with built-in bookshelves makes the space appear yet more vast.

Further along the hall you descend two steps to find cellar access next to a wc and separate shower room. The kitchen/diner enjoys hardwood herringbone Parquet flooring, six ring gas range and some lovely country-style cabinetry. Further French doors open to your conservatory and onto the garden which enjoys a wrap-around paved patio, lawn shed and charming rear seating area crowned in mature Virginia creeper. A cascading Olive Tree supplies dappled shade and theres even a fruit bearing apple tree - think of the pies!Read More

Back inside, head up the wide original staircase - with white painted balustrades and original hard wood hand rail and newel post. The first return supplies a lovely rear facing double bedroom with garden views. A pretty feature fireplace tucks neatly into the corner with a dainty tiled heart. Next to this is a neat bathroom with period style loo, two thirds bath and wooden panelling. A study/single bedroom completes this level with a bright side aspect, feature fireplace and bespoke shelving. The first floor offers a vast front-facing double bedroom that spread full width to include the second storey of that signature square bay window. The feature fireplace enjoys more exquisite tiling and is flanked by fitted storage. Another fantastic double bedroom sits next to this, facing rear and with feature fireplace and oodles of space for slumber. Upward to the second floor you find a tremendous top floor master suite with tip top Juliette balcony supplying sweeping views. There's an adjoining cubby hole - great for additional sleeping and an adjoining en suite with modern white suite.

Forest Hill has a well-stocked town centre with a library, various banks, popular restaurants and a Sainsbury's. There are also some nice pubs. The award winning Blythe Hill Tavern is a great spot for a pint and some tasty nosh. The Dartmouth Arms is popular too. More green space? Crystal Palace Park and Dulwich Parks are only 5-10 minutes journey-time, or walk to Horniman Gardens and Museum. Even closer are the shops and cafes on Perry Vale. Sydenham High Street is easily reached on foot for yet more pubs, shops and social pursuits. Read Less
