A mid-terraced two-bedroom period home on a sought-after residential road in Beckenham. Offered chain-free and in need of cosmetic updating, this home has scope to extend into the loft and at the rear. Nearby are some incredibly sought-after primary schools, including the Ofsted Outstanding Stuart Fleming, Churchfields & Balgowan. There are also multiple transport links very close by making commuting a breeze.
Downstairs accommodation comprises of dual reception rooms, the rearmost part of which widens creating an ideal dining space. Adjacent to this is a separate kitchen which is generously sized and occupies the width of the building.
The first floor has the family bathroom and two double bedrooms, one of which leads to the attic room, and whilst not officially a bedroom, this space would easily be converted into a large double bedroom with the addition of a dormer (subject to planning permission).
The house has a lengthy garden which gets the western sun in the afternoon and evening and in Summer will also get the southern sun for much of the day. There is scope to build an outdoor studio/work-from-home space in the garden and potentially extend the house further, if desired, whilst still leaving a lengthy garden
