A four-bedroom mid-terrace family home with a sizeable southwest-facing garden, which has been extended to the rear to create an impressive large kitchen/diner. Situated in a popular residential location convenient for Penge, Beckenham and Crystal Palace, also nearby is an Ofsted “Outstanding” rated primary School that is highly sought after.
This spacious home has been extended at the rear and into the loft to create the fourth bedroom with an en-suite. The ground floor extension has created a large kitchen/diner area, and there’s a separate reception room at the front of the house, providing a highly desirable layout that most families will appreciate.
The ground floor accommodation works well for family life, the reception at the front has an eastern aspect, making it bright for the first half of the day, it’s also very useful that this room is separate from the kitchen/diner, as having a space away from the hustle and bustle of the kitchen/diner will be a godsend for most families.
The kitchen/diner is a hugely impressive space, offering room for the largest of gatherings and parties and all the room needed for everyday family life, it’s a space that will no doubt be the heart of the home. Boasting two large skylights and large bi-folding doors that concertina open, extending your living space into the garden, it’s incredibly bright too. The kitchen is laid out in a T shape, with a central island on which there’s a gas hob and a functional breakfast bar. There are absolutely acres of worktop space, great for prepping the largest or most complex of meals, and storage is in no shortage either!
Moving up onto the first floor, there are three bedrooms, with two being doubles and one a single, ideal for a child nursery, or a work-from-home space. The two rooms at the front of the house have a glorious east-facing aspect, making them wonderfully bright spaces in the morning. The family bathroom is also on the first floor; there’s a shower over a full-size bath, the walls are partially tiled, and there’s a large window and contemporary sanitaryware finishing it off nicely.
The loft conversion has created a large double bedroom with an en-suite; it’s a brilliantly bright space owing to the layout of the window and skylights, which really takes advantage of the house’s fabulous aspect. It overlooks the garden to the rear and has a proper dormer extension. There’s a considerable amount of space for storage if desired and further eaves storage too. The en-suite has a large walk-in shower and is finished to a very high standard, it’s very contemporary and finished in neutral grey tones.
The garden is well-manicured, and there’s a patio off the house ideal for garden furniture and BBQs. With the large bi-folding doors open it creates a nice flow between the indoors and outdoors, and this space will no doubt make you popular hosts in the summer! There’s an easily maintained lawn with a shed at the end, which could be replaced with an outbuilding/studio making the ultimate work-from-home space. Notably, the garden has a southwest-facing aspect, making it an incredibly bright space from mid to late morning through to the evening.
Location-wise, the house is 0.2 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. 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 schools are very sought after, with the most popular ones being Stewart Fleming (rated outstanding) which is one road over, Churchfields, and the perennially popular Balgowan primary school are also very nearby.
The local parade on Elmers End Rd has a Co-op, a gym, a few cafes and other useful amenities, including the newly opened Italian restaurant “Bella Vista”. There’s an Aldi close by, and Penge High Street is not far for a wider selection of shops, including a larger Sainsbury. 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.
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.
