Full property description

A chain-free three-bedroom house on a popular residential road with a large south-facing garden, a stunning open-plan ground floor layout and a selection of highly desirable primary schools and convenient transport links all within easy reach. There’s also scope to extend into the loft space (stpp).

This pretty family home has been extended and remodelled on the ground floor to create an open, flowing space, it’s an attractive layout that most buyers prefer and it works very well here, especially as it allows the light to flow through – the garden and the open plan kitchen/diner face southeast and the front of the house and living space face west, creating bright spaces no matter the time of day.  

The living space at the front has a large square bay with leaded windows, its western aspect is ideal for a living space as it gets the late afternoon and evening sun and the white walls and stripped wooden floors give a simple elegant aesthetic, that is modern and minimalist, but also feels homely. This space flows into the kitchen/diner and the continuation of the same beautiful wood floors throughout the ground floor pulls these spaces together and gives them a premium feel. There’s a useful downstairs WC, which surprisingly hasn’t been shoehorned under the stairs, it’s positioning ideal for a home that will no doubt see many gatherings and parties!

The rear of the ground floor is home to a stunning kitchen, its light but warm tones compliment the rest of the interior incredibly well, but it’s not just pretty to look at, it’s super functional too, with acres of quartz tops, an absolute abundance of storage and that wonderful large island, it just works so well. The premium feel of the kitchen is helped by the slick handles which are finished in brass and the fully integrated appliances, everything is here, but all are hidden away.

Moving upstairs, there are three bedrooms and a beautifully finished bathroom. The rear bedroom and bathroom get the eastern sun in the morning, making them lovely places to be in the morning. The master bedroom is at the front of the house and has the benefit of a large bay, with the same attractive leaded windows found in the reception below. The bathroom is well-finished and features a rain shower over a bath, there’s metro tiles on the walls and quality hexagonal mosaic-style tiles on the floor.

The garden at the rear is sizeable for the area and has a direct southern aspect, it’s hemmed in by its neighbouring gardens which will provide comfort to some. There’s a patio directly off the house, which is ideal for garden furniture and a BBQ.

Location-wise, the house is 0.1 mi from Birkbeck Station, with two trains per hour to Beckenham Junction and London Bridge via Crystal Palace. There’s also a tram every ten minutes, which takes you into Beckenham Junction, or, East Croydon in the opposite direction (great for the Gatwick Express!). Beckenham Junction Station opens up a direct link to both London Bridge & Victoria. Elmers End Station is just over half a mile away and offers another Tram link and also a direct connection to Charing Cross.

The local parade on Elmers End Rd has a Co-op, a gym, a cafe and a few other useful amenities, including the newly opened Italian restaurant “Bella Vista”, a very helpful post office, dry cleaners, a hardware shop and nail salon. The other end of the road offers the popular El Molino tapas and a craft brewery in Br3wery.

Beckenham High St would likely be your go-to for a night out, owing to how accessible it is via Birkbeck station, and offers a vast variety of restaurants providing a truly global selection of cuisines to choose from, as well as many cafes and coffee shops.

Crystal Palace is just under 1.5 miles away, famed for its independent shops and artisan sellers, there are very few chain shops on The Triangle which is widely celebrated and it has an abundance of lovely coffee shops, incredible restaurants and gastro pubs, as well as galleries, yoga schools, an everyman cinema and a farmers market which operates every Saturday on Haynes Lane.

Elmers End is down the road, for your bigger shop there is a large Tesco Supermarket, and just before Elmers End is South Norwood Country Park which offers 125 acres of parkland, wetlands and meadows, great for dog walking and exercising.

The local schools are very sought after, with the most popular ones being Stewart Fleming (rated outstanding), Churchfields, and the perennially popular Balgowan primary school are also very nearby, making this location sought after by young families.
