Devonshire Road, Forest Hill, SE23 - £1,050,000

There's no denying this home's kerb-appeal. Packing a (truly splendid) punch from the pavement, this short terrace of Victorian townhouses can each comfortably home a large family. The lower-ground floor kitchen/diner is 27ft long, stretches the entire length of the house and is lit by windows at either end of the room. Antique units are fitted on one wall and contemporary units opposite; there's a freestanding stainless steel stove fitted into a chimney breast, down-lighters fitted in the ceiling and wood flooring is laid. Views from the rear bay window are of the south-facing garden.

Throughout the house are stripped floorboards, period fireplaces and sash windows. Decor is spotless, walls are painted in soft tones and the double reception has interconnecting bi-fold doors. All bedrooms are true doubles, there's a family bathroom and top-floor shower room.

Devonshire Road is a much-loved street stretching form Forest Hill town centre to Honor Oak. This home is at the Forest Hill end, a few minutes' walk to the independent shops and cafés found in the area. The station is just 5-minutes away, has services to London Bridge and Victoria and London Overground links to Canada Water, Shoreditch, Hoxton, Dalston Junction and Highbury & Islington. St David's is the prettiest coffee shop you could wish for, there are superb comedy nights at The Hob and The Sylvan Post does excellent food. You'll also find a Sainsbury's Post Office, WHSmiths, Boots, delicatessen and modern swimming pool/leisure centre. Horniman Museum and Gardens is very close and holds regular farmers' markets while Sydenham Woods is also within walking distance. Nearby schools include Fairlawn, Horniman and Dalmain, while older children can attend Sydenham Girls' or Forest Hill Boys' state schools.
