PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Presenting this truly spectacular 5 double bedroom Victorian terraced family home with a beautifully landscaped SOUTH facing rear garden, on one of SE23’s premier quiet residential streets. Dunoon Road is popular with local residents as its close to Honor Oak station, as well as the highly rated Fairlawn Primary school and has a great community that holds annual street parties. Offered to the market CHAIN FREE.

This handsome redbrick house has been stylishly decorated throughout by the current owners and offers a wealth of period features.
The property is set back from the street by a low maintenance front garden with steps leading up to the front door. The house offers plenty of kerb appeal with a red brick façade, a square bay with sash windows painted in a stylish dark grey dominates the frontage and a Victorian style door is protected by a recessed porch.

Upon entry there is a wide hallway with a staircase leading up, incorporating storage underneath, hooks for coats behind and fitted storage cupboards for shoes with shelving above.

At the front of the house is a generous reception room which is raised from ground level allowing for privacy and plenty of natural light from the two large sash bay windows that are set with the square bay. The room benefits from high ceilings, the floors are solid oak and there is an ornate period fireplace as a centerpiece with fitted shelving in an alcove to the side.

A cosy second reception room sits adjacent, painted in dark 'Tanners Brown' Farrow and Ball, again there are solid oak floors, high ceilings with cornicing and a wood burning stove in the fireplace with more shelving fitted into one of the alcoves. Double patio doors lead out to the side return offering direct access to the garden and natural light into the room.

The rear of the house is occupied by a large kitchen dining room where there is plenty of space for a dining room table and chairs under the two large sash windows overlooking the side return, a great space for entertaining guests or family. On the other side of the room, the chimney and alcoves have been utilised for storage with fitted shelving.
A breakfast bar island separates the dining area from the kitchen with an induction hob housed in a solid wooden worktop, an extractor hood above and storage underneath. There are plenty of cream gloss cupboards with integrated appliances, a solid wood worktop above and a funky orange splash back with the sink siting neatly under the double-glazed window overlooking the garden. To the side is a double-glazed patio door leading to the garden.

The SOUTH FACING garden has been beautifully landscaped with the lie of the land to create an oasis of calm and tranquility. Nearest to the house there is a small Travertine Marble patio for your morning coffee, next to the log store to the side. There are two distinct areas, the lower part has a circular Travertine Marble patio with a curved seating area to either side, surrounded by lush green mature borders of plants and shrubs. A perfect spot of summer evening entertaining.
Winding steps lead up through a jungle of plants to the sunny upper decked seating area, the circular theme continues! At the far end of the garden, painted in a pale blue, is the summer house which is wired up for electricity so it could quite easily double up as a home office.

Upstairs spanning the whole width of the house is a fabulous main bedroom with high ceilings and three full width sash windows furnished with plantation shutters, two of which sit in a bay drawing in natural light.
The floors are the original floorboards that have been bleached, sanded and varnished accompanied by an ornate cast iron feature fireplace sits proudly in front of the chimney breast.

Bedroom 2 is also a very good size double; it also has high ceilings and the floors have been varnished. A double-glazed window overlooks the garden through the side return.

A luxurious family bathroom awaits in the center of the house. Underfloor heated, dark wood effect tiled flooring compliments the blue gloss metro tiled wall of the shower area. Center stage, a roll top bath sits directly under two large sash windows that have been furnished with privacy roller blinds. The toilet follows the Victorian theme in contrast to the contemporary sink that sits on a reclaimed marble tabletop. The large walk in shower has a glass screen, wall mounted Victorian style fixtures and a heated towel rail.

At the end of the house is bedroom three, a charming double with wood effect flooring and lovely views directly over the garden through a double-glazed window.

Up in the loft are two more bedrooms and a shower room. The double bedroom at the back has carpeted floors, plenty of space for storage and double-glazed windows that have far reaching views. The bedroom at the front has a large skylight following the line of the roof, flooding this room with natural light. The floors are carpeted and there is access to storage in the eaves.

The shower room has cleverly utilised the space above the staircase where the shower enclosure is situated. The floors and walls are tiled with the wash hand basin and toilet fitted to one side. Two large skylights in the roof line allow for natural light and ventilation.

Dunoon Road is conveniently located twixt 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.
