6 Bedroom House For Sale
This majestic five-bedroom detached home is on one of the most delightful streets in the area. You have a separate annex, off-street parking and front and rear gardens. Close to schools, parks and shops. Chain free.
Few of the family homes along this street are detached, fewer still have a self-contained annex (perfect for an au pair, or granny or for renting out).
A fluid layout on the ground-floor of the house has created distinct sofa and dining zones that lead back to a garden-facing kitchen. Herringbone oak parquet flooring is laid and the handmade marble and slate fireplace works for open fires. Light floods in through a large bay at one end, French doors at the other and a vaulted skylight above the kitchen island. Kitchen units are solid oak while worktops are cut from beautiful green Indian marble. Appliances include an American-style fridge-freezer, two NEFF ovens, a dishwasher and a built-in microwave.
The annex has its own external side door and an internal door connecting it to the main house. The kitchen-breakfast room has shaker-style units, the wet room is sizeable while the double bedroom has space for a sofa and lots of fitted wardrobes. Sliding doors open out to a sandstone patio.
Outside the main house is a raised iroko decking area. The garden is wide, stretches to 65-feet, has a sunken trampoline, vegetable patches, a wooden playhouse with an integral rabbit run, a rear shed and a large garden room with insulation and electricity.
Floors of these houses have mezzanine levels and the first mezzanine here has a lavatory on one side and a bedroom with oak parquet flooring (currently used as a playroom) on the other. On the first floor is the master bedroom with handmade cherry veneer storage and an en suite shower room. The bedroom next door, used as a study, has a double-glazed (and draught-proofed) sash window that overlooks the garden. The next mezzanine level has a huge family bathroom with double-width shower, part freestanding Clearwater luxury bath, alcove linen cupboards and natural stone tiles. Across the hall is 'the den,' a room with a raised floor, Victorian dormer window and bookshelves. Both eaves bedrooms have fantastic standing height; one has stripped floorboards while the other has fitted wardrobes. From this landing you access an extensive walk-in loft that continues into the eaves.
You're a ten minute drive from Alleyn's, Dulwich College, JAGS and St Dunstan's independent schools while nearby state schools include Fairlawn, St Francesca Cabrini, Goodrich and two (Ofsted 'outstanding') Harris academies. Peckham Rye Park and One Tree Hill are a short walk away as are the parade of shops, cafés and pubs along Forest Hill Road: we love French Bistro Café, Norris and Knight, Watson's General Telegraph and The Herne Tavern. You'll discover superb independent shops, bars and restaurants along nearby Lordship Lane and Honor Oak Park
