PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

A unique opportunity to purchase this rare DETACHED Arts and Crafts style, 3/4 bedroom family home that has a self-contained one bedroom flat as an annex. The house sits proudly on an enormous plot of land, offering off street parking, an integrated garage and a huge 180ft (54.86m) SOUTH FACING rear garden!

This distinctive family home boasts an abundance of space offering 1836 sq ft (170 sqm) of internal floor space and plenty of character and charm throughout. Most of which is on the ground floor with the annex connected by a utility room at the rear of the garage. The property offers immense potential but does require extensive updating to bring it back to its former glory, so anyone interested will have to be prepared to roll up their sleeves.

Dunoon Road is one of SE23’s premier residential streets that is very quiet, with a lovely local community very close to Honor Oak Park station and Fairlawn Primary School.

Upon approach its difficult not to be impressed by the charming, characterful façade this house offers with dark exposed brickwork, original Crittal windows and sloping tiled roof. The house sits a good 40ft back from the street protected by walled front garden and driveway leading to the garage offering plenty of space for a couple of cars. The front garden has a lawn with a path down the middle leading to the front entrance and is surrounded by borders of mature hedges. A couple of steps lead to a front porch, handy for leaving wet shoes, coats and brollies.

Upon entry there is wide entrance hall that houses the staircase with a storage cupboard underneath and provides access to the reception rooms and kitchen.

There is a cosy reception room/study located front and centre of the house which has a fireplace and three original Crittal windows that overlook the front garden.

On the other side of the hall is the main reception room which opens up to the rear to a brick built conservatory extension. This bright and spacious area has parquet flooring and is surrounded by windows that look out to the vast expanse of garden which is accessible via a patio door to the side.

The garden is nothing short of spectacular,180 ft 54.86m) long and 47 ft (14.33m) wide it could pass for a small park. Its SOUTH facing aspect means it will catch the sun all year round. There is a patio area closest to the house and an extensive lawn surrounded by mature plants, shrubs and trees making this garden private and peaceful. At the far end of the garden there are three sheds, a greenhouse and plenty of room for an allotment for those with green fingers.

The kitchen is at the rear of the house, it too shares lovely views out over the garden. It’s an ample size with the sink sitting below the window and a larder to the side which is located under the stairs.

The kitchen leads through to the rear part of the garage where there is a separate guest toilet. Beyond this is a utility room that offers access to the garden and leads through to the annex.

The annex was built circa 2001 and is completely self-contained, access through the garage and utility means it can be entered from the street without having to go through the house. Perfect for elderly parents or even older children/teenagers who don’t want to fly the nest quite yet!
This versatile space gives this house a whole new dimension of flexibility and practicality that could suit many family’s needs. It could even serve well to be converted into a home office with gym! The possibilities are endless.
Currently the annex has a kitchen dining room as you enter with tiled flooring and plenty of fitted cupboards. Beyond this is a reception room/lounge which has French doors leading to the garden, beyond this is a double bedroom with a window to the side and has access to an en-suite bathroom at the far end of the annex.

Upstairs on the first floor are 3 double bedrooms all of which have original Crittal windows. The largest bedroom has double aspect windows front to back, offering nice views either way.
The smallest bedroom sits at the back of the house overlooking the garden. At the front of the house is a good size double which has nice views over the front garden.

Also on this floor is a shower room with a wash hand basin and there is a separate toilet.

The loft has potential to be converted into a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom (subject to planning). For the time being it offers good additional storage.

Dunoon Road is conveniently located next to Devonshire Road and Honor Oak Road providing easy access to the amenities of both Honor Oak Park and Forest Hill. This home is at the Honor Oak end, only a few minutes' walk to the independent shops and cafés found nearby and the magical Devonshire Road Nature Reserve. The highly rated Fairlawn Primary school is literally at the top of the road (209 meters), Francesca Cabrini catholic school is only 241 meters and Horniman Primary is close by too (0.43 miles).
Honor Oak Park station, just five minutes away (approx. 550 meters), has services to London Bridge and London Overground links to Canada Water, Shoreditch, Hoxton, Dalston Junction and Highbury & Islington. Forest Hill station is on the same line but also offers a connection to London Victoria.
At the other end of Devonshire Road is Forest Hill where you will find a large Sainsbury's, Post Office, WH Smiths, Boots, delicatessens and modern swimming pool/leisure centre. Horniman Museum and Gardens is very close and holds regular farmers' markets, great summer events and a butterfly sanctuary, while Sydenham Woods is also within walking distance.
Forest Hill Road leads down to the open green spaces of Benchley Gardens and Peckham Rye as well as offering plenty of amenities including a couple of great pubs, restaurants and a GP surgery.
