Property SummaryA fabulous three double bedroom freehold Victorian mid-terrace house, which benefits from stylishly finished interiors and beautiful original period features. This spacious, outstanding home has two large downstairs reception rooms, high ceilings and a beautiful, enclosed sunny 30 metres long garden. It is located within a 10 minute walk to Hither Green and Lee train stations, with fast routes into central London/the City.
Whilst exuding style and comfort, the property has a superb feel, relaxing ambiance and desirability in abundance. It is also well located for schools, public transport and shops, which makes this a great home. It also benefits from free on street parking.
The front door opens onto a reception hall with a solid-wood floor, a candelabra-style light fitting, and internal doors leading to two reception rooms. Carpeted stairs with open spindles and wooden banister rails to the left rise to the first floor.
The first reception room overlooking the front of the house includes a feature fireplace at the foot of a pastel-green-painted chimney breast, with white mantle and stone hearth beneath inset with a gas fire. Solid-wood floors offer a contrast to white-painted walls, with plenty of natural light available from the large bay windows.
The hallway leads through to the second reception room with twin windows overlooking the back garden. Also fitted with a solid-wood floor, the room is illuminated by recessed, ceiling-mounted LED spotlights, with warmth in winter provided by wall-mounted radiators, supplementing a second feature mantelpiece and fireplace.
An open doorway leads through to a galley-style kitchen fitted with a wood parquet floor and wooden work tops, contrasting with white cupboard and drawer units and splashback tiles fitted above all the cooking and preparation areas. There is also space for an oven and four-ring gas hob, a dishwasher, a washer-drier, and a stainless steel sink with mixer tap beneath a window overlooking the rear garden.
The stairs to the first floor lead to a large landing with internal doors opening onto three double bedrooms, as well as a bathroom, which is fitted with a pedestal sink with separate hot and cold taps, a WC and a panel bath with shower attachment and hinged glass splash screen.
All three bedrooms are decorated in neutral colours, carpeted and fitted with wall-mounted radiators providing warmth in winter.
The property benefits from double glazing and is fitted with a programmable, gas-fired central heating system. Low-energy lighting has already been installed in all fixed points through the house.
The property is fronted by a decorative stone wall, with access to a small courtyard garden between twin brick pillars. Evergreen shrubs add a splash of colour with a path leading to the covered front door. To the rear, an extensive enclosed garden is laid mostly to lawn, shrubs and small ornamental trees to the right helping to add both colour and contrast as well as a degree of privacy. Timber fence panels line the left of the garden with a path leading to a timber storage shed. There is a small concrete patio accessed via an external door from the kitchen while additional features include an outside tap and some external lighting.
