Spacious and Characterful Three Bedroom Family Home With Bags of Potential
This lovely Interwar 3 bedroom house has a range of original features and bags of character and, with some modernisation, would provide a spacious family home with a nice private garden in a great location. The house currently has three double bedrooms but neighbouring properties have extended into the loft space so there is scope (STPP) to extend the existing accommodation.
The house is situated on Forest Hill Road in East Dulwich and is, therefore, convenient for both Honor Oak and Peckham Rye rail stations as well as the green open spaces of Peckham Rye itself. The house is also very well located for schools with both Harris Boys’ and Girls’ Academies within less than a ten minute walk as well as a number of well regarded primary schools.
You approach the property through the paved front garden and enter into an enclosed porch before entering the house proper via the front door with its stained glass inserts. Upon entering the property you find yourself in the broad entrance hall, typical of properties of this age, with its pretty tiled period corner fireplace.
Immediately to your right in the hallway is the first of the reception rooms. This is a spacious and bright room with a double glazed bay looking out onto Forest Hill Road. There are stripped wooden floorboards and a period tiled hearth with wooden surround.
Returning to the hallway you pass the downstairs cloakroom to the right before entering, via period double doors with stained glass, into the dining room. This is, again, a generously sized room with another period fireplace and double doors leading out to a lean-to area. From the lean-to a further door leads out into the garden. From the dining room an archway leads into the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a range of low-level and wall units with space for a range of freestanding appliances.
Returning to the entrance hallway a flight of stairs with open wooden balustrade leads to the first floor. Here you will find the bedrooms and the bathroom. From the first floor landing there is also access to the loft space. To your right at this level are the bathroom and separate WC. The bathroom is fitted with a white two piece suite comprising bath with over bath shower and hand basin. Between the bathroom and the WC is a very useful deep storage cupboard.
Opposite the upstairs WC is the first of the three bedrooms. This is a very spacious double room with a period tiled fireplace with original surround. Casement windows look down from this room onto the garden.
At the front of the property are the remaining two bedrooms. To your right is the smallest of the bedrooms, which is still a comfortable double. It has casement windows looking down onto Forest Hill Road and an interconnecting door into the third bedroom. The third bedroom is, again, a spacious double room. It has stripped wooden floorboards, a range of built-in storage and a wide bay looking out onto Forest Hill Road.
Externally the property benefits from a paved front garden and a rear garden extending to some 25 feet. The part of the garden nearest the house is paved with the remainder lawned with surrounding beds. From the garden a locked passageway leads out onto Forest Hill Road meaning that there is access to the garden for bikes, tools and plants without having to pass through the house.
This is a characterful property with bags of potential and your early viewing is recommended.
