Honor Oak Park, Forest Hill, SE23 - £1,150,000

There are seven bedrooms in this 2400sq.ft house, six being doubles. Ceilings are high, rooms are bright and the entire property is in mint condition. Owned by a landlord, the property is run as a house of muiltple occupancy (HMO) and has the accompanying licence. For someone wanting to invest, this is a turnkey operation with a high earning potential. For families wanting sprawling space, switching this back to a 5/6-double bedroom home is simple - plus there's plenty scope for luxury en suites. Tessellated tiles and stained glass panels make a feature of the entrance which has the house name engraved above the front door. On the ground floor are two separate receptions (one is currently the seventh bedroom), a bathroom and large kitchen/diner. A bay door opens outside to a perfectly manicured garden with a gate that opens to the off-street parking for the house. Should you want to convert this into one large garden, it would measure around 60ft in total.

The cellar/basement has been turned into a cosy family room/third reception and has the beginnings of a perfect family cinema or playroom. There are three double bedrooms, a large single bedroom, a bathroom and a separate loo on the first floor. On the top floor the two largest double bedrooms have fabulous double aspects with fantastic views of the North Downs. The smaller double has characterful eaves ceilings and a large skylight.

Honor Oak Park station is across the road, has regular trains to London Bridge and Victoria plus London Overground links to Canada Water, Whitechapel, Shoreditch, Hoxton, Dalston Junction and Highbury & Islington. Nearby primary schools are very good (Stillness, St Francesca Cabrini) while older children do well at The Sydenham School, The Forest School and either Harris academy at Peckham Rye. Honor Oak has a high street with an excellent delicatessen, café, Sainsbury's Local, gift shop, organic beautician, florist and bicycle shop. Restaurants around here are all great; Le Querce is a well-regarded Italian, Babur am award-winning Indian, Donde a highly enjoyable tapas bar and Mamma Dough is a very hip sourdough pizzeria. One Tree Hill (Dick Turpin's rumoured look-out and a picnic spot for Elizabeth I), is minutes away for woodland walks with dramatic views of London.
