Canonbie Road, Forest Hill, London, SE23


3 Bedroom House Under Offer

An utterly charming family home with 3-bedrooms, sitting room, dining area off the kitchen, deep front garden and an enchanting rear garden. Walk to schools, Honor Oak’s high street and trains/Overground services.

We adore Canonbie Road with its charming mix of architectural styles. There are some thumping Victorian and turn-of-the-century homes, a handful of eye-catching Edwardians, handsome houses from the thirties and fifties plus a couple of low-rise sixties blocks. As the road climbs one of the area's tallest peaks, the views from the top are inspired.

This very sweet terrace of just four 1930's homes are set far back from the street. They're at the Forest Hill Road end, close to Honor Oak Park and Peckham Rye. The same family have lived here for many years and very much looked after the place.

There's a sitting room at the front of the house and a dining room at the rear that opens out to the garden. It also opens to the kitchen, which has cottage-style units, a Belfast sink and a six-ring freestanding stove with a double oven. There's the original pantry cupboard, a butcher's block and brick trim between units and an oak worktop. Upstairs are two large double bedrooms (one with the original carved wood mantelpiece) and a small double/large single bedroom (no box rooms here). Bathroom features include a freestanding roll-top bath, shower cubicle and traditional style W.C. and basin. Original features in the house include the front door, a corner mantelpiece in the hallway, internal doors, balustrades and stained glass (leaded) windows.

The garden is a joy and perfectly zoned for entertaining and productive use. The stone terrace near the house steps down to a lawn heavily fringed with flowers, ferns and various perennials. Next is a brick pergola brimming with wisteria with an outdoor kitchen area with a Belfast sink and space for a small fridge. Beyond this is an established vegetable garden with raised beds and you’ll find vehicle access at the very rear.

You're just a 12/16-minute walk from Honor Oak Park station for trains (London Bridge and Victoria) and London Overground links (Canada Water, Shoreditch, Hoxton, Dalston Junction and Highbury & Islington).

Nearby primary schools include Fairlawn, Horniman and St Francesca Cabrini while secondary options include two Ofsted 'outstanding' Harris academies at Peckham Rye.

Honor Oak's high street includes a Sainsbury's Local and several independents (a delicatessen, beautician, gift shop, florist and bicycle shop). There are some great places to eat, including a sourdough pizzeria (Mamma Dough), tapas bar (Donde), wine bar (Grounds and Grapes), modern Italian (Le Querce) and award-winning Indian (Babur).
