PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Offered to the market for the first time since it was built, having been in the same family for almost a century! This beautiful double fronted 4-bedroom, 1920’s semi-detached family home is a real gem! Set on this quiet residential street it still maintains many of its original period features, offering an abundance of space and charm.

The house needs complete modernisation throughout and benefits from a large walled front garden with off street parking, an integrated garage and a private rear garden overlooking St Dunstan’s Playing fields.

This handsome double fronted specimen oozes character with plenty of kerb appeal, large bay widows sit on a red brick façade, the garage is integrated and still retains its original doors and an arched porch leads to the front entrance.

Upon entry through the original glass panelled front door there is a wide entrance hall with stairs leading up and storage underneath.

At the front of the property is a large reception room with high ceilings, exposed original flooring, a huge bay window that floods the room with natural light and a beautiful period fireplace with original wood surround as a centre piece.

At the end of the hallway at the back of the house is the kitchen which is a good size and could easily be knocked through to the dining room that sits adjacent. There is a window overlooking the garden and a door to the side return.

The dining room has high ceilings, exposed original flooring, a tiled fireplace and a floor to ceiling bay with patio doors that illuminate this room with natural light and leads directly into the rear garden.

The garden is a wedge shape and backs directly onto St Dunstan’s school with lovely views over its playing fields. The side return allows for direct access to the front of the house where there is also access to the garage and an outside toilet and store cupboard.

Upstairs the staircase splits left and right to a landing.
To the left, over the garage, there is a separate toilet and a large double bedroom. The bedroom overlooks the front of the house through a curved bay window, there are exposed original floorboards and a feature fireplace.

On the other side of the house is another large double bedroom with more exposed wooden flooring, a large bay window and another fireplace with an ornate wooden surround.

A smaller bedroom sits between these two larger doubles in the middle of the house and would make a good nursery or study.

At the rear of the house is a family size bathroom, still retaining its original tiles, there is space for a bathtub, shower enclosure and a wash hand basin. Next to the bathroom from the landing is a large airing cupboard which could be easily knocked through to create a bigger bathroom.

One more large double bedroom at the back of the house has lovely views across the garden and over St Dunstan’s Playing fields. Again, this room has original flooring, a lovely feature fireplace with surround, a cupboard in one of the alcoves and high ceilings.

The loft space is enormous as it spans the whole width of the house, if one needed more space further down the line this could also be converted subject to the necessary consents.

This house is a great project with bundles of potential, looking for a new owner to give it the love and attention it deserves.

Casslee Road is well located and surrounded by open green spaces such as Blythe Hill fields, Ravensbourne Park Gardens and Ladywell Fields. Transport links into all parts of London could hardly be easier. Catford Bridge provides services to Cannon Street (in around 24 minutes) and Charing Cross (in around 22 minutes), both via London Bridge. There are also services from Catford up to Kings Cross St Pancras via Elephant and Castle and Blackfriars. For anyone needing the London Overground, Honor Oak Park station is within easy reach by cutting through Blythe Hill Fields and Crofton Park station is just up the road too. Having all these options for stations makes commuting when train lines aren’t available a doddle!
Amenities can be found either in the centre of Catford, Forest Hill or Honor Oak Park. Including a selection of high street favourites, independent coffee shops and several highly-rated restaurants and gastro pubs. A couple of places of note for an evening out include The Blythe Hill Tavern, a CAMRA-award winning pub, and the Ninth life and Catford Bridge Tavern are new hip gastro pubs and there is even a new Cinema in Catford Mews! Rise Café at the bottom of Blythe Hill Fields is a great place for a spot of breakfast or Sunday brunch. There is also a very good selection of Outstanding and Good primary schools nearby including Rathfern, Dalmain, Stillness, St William of York, Prendergast and independent through school, St Dunstan’s College, is a short walk away.
