Full property description

A well-presented three-bedroom mid-terrace 1930’s family home in a convenient residential location near Crystal Palace, Beckenham, and South Norwood.

Offering fantastic space that is well distributed across both floors with scope to extend into the loft space (we recently sold one a few doors down with a loft conversion which completed at £645,000). There’s a spacious southwest-facing reception room to the front, which is bright from the early afternoon through to the evening. It has quality double-glazed windows, a period fireplace, a picture rail running the perimeter of the room, neutral décor and laminate flooring.

To the rear of the ground floor are the dining room and kitchen; these spaces are semi-open plan to each other but could easily be opened up to create the highly desired open-plan setup if desired. The dining room has UPVC French doors leading onto the garden, a pretty period fireplace, more picture rails, and wood floors. The kitchen is arranged in a horseshoe configuration, which works well, but if this space were opened up, the kitchen could be enlarged to create more storage and worktop space.

Moving up to the first floor, there are three bedrooms and the family bathroom; two of the bedrooms are large double rooms, and one is a single. The front bedroom benefits from the bay window and has space for integrated wardrobes to be built into the alcoves, there are original-style picture rails running the perimeter of the room, and there’s another ornate original fireplace. The rear bedroom is a great room to use as the principal bedroom as it has an eastern aspect, so it gets the sunrise first thing in the morning, it has a view over the garden to the rear, and it has another quality double-glazed window.

The bathroom offers the best of both worlds: a claw-foot bath and a separate walk-in shower. It has a quality feel, with fully tiled walls and a tiled floor, contemporary sanitaryware, and a heated towel rail. The loft hatch was moved from the bathroom to the landing and has a proper pull-down ladder, giving access to the loft, which is fully boarded out and provides tremendous storage space.

The garden is easily maintained. Due to its eastern aspect, it gets immense sun in the morning but also the southern sun for much of the day. There is a garage that can be accessed via Haysleigh Gardens, although some may consider clearing the garage to make the garden larger. There is also the option of making an open driveway or replacing it with a quality studio/outbuilding for those who work from home.

Location-wise, the house is 0.6 mi from Anerley Station (a 12 min walk according to google maps), with frequent trains to London Bridge and West Croydon, as well as Dalston on the overland which also takes you into Shoreditch.

Norwood Junction is also a very popular station (0.7 mi or 14 mins walk away according to google maps) that provides a fast and convenient link to London Bridge, the direct train is only one stop and takes only 13 minutes, there is also a London Bridge via Crystal Palace route which stops at Gipsy Hill, West Norwood, Herne Hill, East Dulwich & Peckham, which is nice for weekends and evenings out. 

Birkbeck Station is 0.8 mi away (a 15 min walk according to google maps) with a tram every ten minutes, which takes you into Beckenham Junction or East Croydon in the opposite direction. Beckenham Junction Station opens up a direct link to both London Bridge & Victoria. Elmers End Station is just over a mile away and offers another Tram link and also a direct connection to Charing Cross too.

Elmers End also has a large Tesco Supermarket, and just before Elmers End is South Norwood Country Park which offers 125 acres of parkland, wetlands and meadow, great for dog walking and exercising.

The local schools are very sought after, with the most popular one being Stuart Fleming which is rated outstanding.

Crystal Palace is nearby with it’s array of restaurants, bars and gastropubs, not to mention it’s fabulous coffee shops. South Norwood has a growing foodie scene too, which is varied and of course Beckenham is also within very easy reach and has an incredibly diverse selection of restaurants to choose from.
