Magnificent Five Bedroom Semi Detached Home with Gated OSP and Huge West Facing Landscaped Garden
Christmas season is fast approaching and this stunning home on a premier road will keep you filled with cheer all year round. Built by the famous master builder Edward (Ted) Christmas, these homes are well known for their huge proportions, period features and notable external touches. This semi-detached beauty is crammed with beautiful, well preserved features and holds a whole host of internal space. There are five bedrooms, a stunning conservatory, two bathrooms (one en suite) and an approximately 60ft west-facing landscaped garden.
Sunderland Road is a very quiet street with ample parking and a good sense of community. Families will be pleased to know you are perfectly placed for Mayow park, which is a five minute bike ride with the kids. The first thing you'll notice about this house in particular is the gated drive - it's very wide and will make way for two cars. Heading up to the front door you'll notice a lovely porch hood inviting you through your front door which displays 'Aberfoyle' and into an inner porch for muddy shoes. The entrance hall is superbly wide and has its own bay window, working period fireplace and wonderful tessellated tiling - they don't make them like this anymore! To your right is the first reception room with picture rails, mosaic parquet flooring and a huge front facing bay window. You'll find another reception room sitting just behind with a beautiful fireplace and access to the stunning conservatory. It's a very well-planned addition with a slate floor and wonderful views of the garden. The current owners use this as a dining and entertaining area - you can access the garden for post dinner party drinks! The landscaped garden is a huge, envy enducing entertaining space. There's even outside lighting and an irrigation system.
Such large living areas demand a well-equipped kitchen, which you'll find also on the ground floor with swift access from any room on this level. There is an Aga, country-style units, integrated modern fridge, a central island with wine storage (naturally) and space for the bin/recycling, and even a built in microwave for lazy teens! Find a nifty utility room (accessed via the kitchen) for additional storage and household chores.
Head up the wooden stairs with carpet runner and three staggered stained glass windows will keep your ascent bright. Arranged over the first floor you'll find three mammoth double bedrooms. The front facing room has a wide bay window overlooking the street, an original fireplace with lovely teal tiles and a fitted storage cupboard. The room behind overlooks the garden and has twin fitted wardrobes, more high ceilings and wooden floors - it's our favourite room! Families will love the bathroom; it's equipped with a free standing roll top tub, fitted storage for towels, dual aspect stained glass windows and even a fireplace. There is an additional w.c just next door. The second floor provides a very peaceful double bedroom with en suite shower room and access to loft storage. A fifth and final bedroom, currently used as a games room fronts the street with fitted shelving and storage.
Forest Hill station is a mere 5 minutes by foot for fast and regular services to London Bridge and Victoria and the popular London Overground line. 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 Dartmouth Arms for example serves nice food too). More green space? Crystal Palace Park and Dulwich Parks are only 5-10 minutes journey-time, or walk to Horniman Gardens with Museum.
