Full property description

Offered chain-free is this modern two-bedroom house with a private garden in an incredibly popular residential location convenient for both Forest Hill & Honor Oak.

Positioned between Vestris & Farren Roads are a clutch of four modern houses making up Charlotte Parade; they have a bright southern aspect at the front and generously sized gardens.

Number four has a very social layout on the ground floor, with an open-plan kitchen dining space which flows nicely from the large bright reception room at the front. At the rear, next to the kitchen and dining space, there are double-glazed French doors which lead onto the garden, which works really well when entertaining outdoors.

The kitchen is spacious and arranged in a horseshoe shape, which creates a lot of worktop space and masses of storage space, it has a view over the garden and a tiled floor.

Upstairs are two double bedrooms, with the larger of the two rooms facing the front, which gives it incredible light first thing in the morning owing to that southern aspect. The bathroom is well-finished with a shower over a full-sized bath, partially tiled walls and quality, modern sanitaryware.

The garden to the rear feels private and secluded; it is a bit of a blank canvas where value could be added. We suspect there is scope to extend the house into the garden subject, of course, to local planning laws. Being a corner plot, it is really easy to bring bikes into the garden, and if you were to want to install a work-from-home studio/outbuilding in the garden, this would be made very easy owing to the garden being on the corner of Farren Road.

Location-wise, this pocket of Forest Hill is incredibly quiet and very popular; it’s very residential but is only 0.5 mi or 12 mins (according to Google Maps) away from Forest Hill Station. There’s plenty of open green space nearby, with Mayow park being nearby. The local schools are highly regarded, and shopping is well catered for, with Forest Hill’s Dartmouth Road being nearby, as well as East Dulwich’s Lordship lane offering a great selection of independent shops to browse. Bell Green retail park is also close by, with a large Sainsbury supermarket, a large pet 4 homes with vets, an Aldi, and a large B&Q.
