Located on this sought-after street within the Forest Hill conservation area, is this stunning 4 bedroom detached Victorian family home. The property is in excellent decorative order throughout, having recently been refurbished and reconfigured on the ground floor to create a superb kitchen dining room at the rear. The refurbishment work has been sympathetically completed to retain many of the period features this lovely house has to offer.

From the street the house has great curb appeal with lovely Victorian features such as sash windows, a large bay on the ground floor, typical yellow old stock brick work with intricate masonry detailing and front porch with a large front door complete with stained glass. The front garden is a good size with the house set back from the street, there is also access to the side return which leads to the garden at the back.

Through the large front door is a grand entrance hall oozing with period features such as original floorboards, high ceilings with cornicing and a staircase with a Victorian banister leading upstairs with access to a ground floor WC underneath.

The formal reception room boasts yet more original features with the centre piece being a glorious cast iron fireplace with marble surround. The room also has original floorboards that have been stripped back and varnished, High ceilings with very detailed cornicing and a large Sash bay window with bespoke shutters floods the room with natural light.

The back of the property has been completely remodeled to create a newly fitted, large open planned kitchen dining room. The kitchen is German-made (LWK Kitchens) which has been cleverly designed for families and has some ingenious features such as a disguised utility area.

The Kitchen has a patio door that leads to the rear garden via a raised decked balcony which has steps leading down to a patio area and large lawn with planters on either side.

At the bottom of the garden the current owners have installed a fully insulated, heated Green Retreats lounge room with main electricity, heaters on timers, Sky and internet connection.

From the garden there is access to the basement that spans the whole footprint of the house and makes an excellent storage space and wine cellar. There is also huge potential to extend into this space to incorporate it into the house. The current owners have already drawn up plans for such a project.

Upstairs are the 4 double bedrooms and a luxurious family bathroom. The two bedrooms towards the front of the house are equal in size and offer very generous proportions, the two bedrooms at the back are slightly smaller doubles with lovely views over the garden. All the bedrooms retain nice period features such as high ceilings, cornicing, feature fire places and sash windows, the ones at the front equipped with fashionable plantation shutters.

The bathroom has been lavishly decorated in a stylish Victorian theme to fit in with the house. Black natural tiled floors compliment the white Underground Brick wall tiles. A beautiful Victorian roll top bath tub sits proudly in front of the large sash window furnished in shutters, this is accompanied by a classic Victorian high-top toilet and classic square shape sink with chrome taps. There is also a luxurious fully tiled walk in shower/wet room with large rain shower head above.

Allenby Road is a very popular street as it sits in a conservation area meaning all the houses are protected, in addition the street is one way making it very safe, with plenty of parking available and also relatively quiet compared to other streets.
The street is also close to the outstanding Ofstead rated Kilmorie primary School.
The house is located less than a mile to Forest Hill station which has regular services to London Bridge and Overground connections to Highbury and Islington via Canada Water (Jubilee). Catford station is also less than a mile with Thames link and Blackfrairs connections.
