A really lovely family home on one of the quietest roads in West Norwood. This one had been given a stunning loft conversion creating some rather splendid views towards central London, but its ground floor was in its original layout and lacked the space and layout modern families demand, so £10,000 over a realistic asking price within 10 days in the eye of the Lizz Truss storm wasn't bad going and our vendors were able to escape to Norfolk to live happily ever after!
The house has been lovingly cared for and provides good living space across all three floors, on the ground floor there’s a very homely reception room, with a wood burner, wooden floors, quality double glazing and plantation shutters. The front of the house has a southern aspect making this room particularly bright during the day, so the shutters are a welcome addition.
There’s a useful downstairs cloakroom between the living room and the kitchen. The kitchen is a well thought out room, there’s plenty of worktop space and masses of storage, it has dual integrated ovens and an integrated microwave, a large larder and there is also space for a dining table. The French doors lead onto the decked area, which becomes an extension of living space especially with the canopy over it providing shelter and allowing you to use the space throughout more of the year.
Moving upstairs onto the first floor, there are three bedrooms, two of which are large double rooms, all are well decorated and have carpeted floors, the rear bedroom has a lovely view towards the city, and the front two bedrooms have that lovely bright southern aspect. There’s a separate bathroom to the toilet on this floor, a set up many families will prefer, and the bathroom has a shower over a full size bath with fully tiled walls and a modern contemporary finish.
The top floor extension has been done beautifully, they are huge floor to ceiling windows with a leafy view over the garden extending to views of the London skyline, there are also two skylights on the other side of the room making for a magnificently bright space throughout the day. There’s lots of integrated wardrobe space and also the room has it’s own bathroom, which has a walk in shower, pentagonal tiles and a really bright modern vibe about it.
The house has a large garden with a decked patio area directly off the house, it gets the afternoon and evening sun so is an ideal space for al-fresco dining. There’s an outbuilding too, which could make a great work from home space and at the side of the house is a path shared with the neighbour giving access to the garden, which is ideal for bringing bikes into the garden and taking out garden waste etc, and also serves as a tidy place to keep your bins.
Location wise the house is just over half a mile from West Norwood Station, and the many cafes and celebrated gastro pubs in West Norwood as well as larger chain shops, supermarkets and the Picturehouse Cinema. Gipsy Hill Station is only 0.7 mi away, (15 mins walking according to google maps) which provides another great transport link, with trains going to London Bridge & Victoria. Norwood Park is literally at the end of the road, which has a skatepark, a café, playground and a Montessori nursery. Crystal Palace Triangle is just under a mile away which offers an array of coffee shops, restaurants, bars, gastro pubs and a celebrated farmers market open on Saturdays.
