PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

A truly exceptional spacious one-bedroom Victorian GARDEN flat, radiating an abundance of period features, character and charm. The flat benefits from a private sunny SOUTH facing rear garden, 761 sqft (66.5 sqm) of internal living space and is located on one of Forest Hill’s premier roads.

The exterior of the house has great kerb appeal with a striking façade of red brick walls and ornate period detailing. The property is set back from the street protected by a fenced front garden where there is a pathway that leads to an attractive arched porch giving access to the communal hallway.

Upon entry there is an entrance hall which leads directly to the reception room that occupies the whole width of the house and is oozing with period features. Original stripped floorboards cover the floors, there are high ceilings with cornicing, a wood burning stove in the chimney breast and the room is illuminated by the large bay sash windows looking out over the front garden.

Down some steps in the hallway is access to a coal cellar which is very handy for additional storage. From here there is also access to the kitchen dining room which is a very generous size and offers direct access to the garden via French doors at the rear. This room is especially bright thanks to the South facing aspect which floods the room with natural light through the floor to ceiling windows around the French doors. There are more exposed original floorboards underfoot with a kitchen that is set to one side of the room allowing for plenty of space for a dining room table and chairs. The kitchen has plenty of wall and base mounted units with a metro tiled splashback and a wooden worktop housing the sink and the hob with the oven below and extractor above.

The garden has been beautifully landscaped with a patio area as you step out that is bordered by some mature plants and shrubs. Beyond this is a raised deck with some steps that lead down to a lower decked area.

The main bedroom is located off the main hallway, it’s a good size double with high ceilings, carpeted flooring and a large sash window that offers plenty of natural light.

The bathroom is en-suite to the bedroom, it has grey tiled floors, and tiled walls around the bathtub which has a shower attachment above and a glass screen. There is also a contemporary style wash hand basin that sits next to a large frosted sash window that provides natural light and ventilation. At the far end of the room is a door that leads to a separate toilet which has a heated towel rail and a small window.

Benson Road is a very popular family orientated road, with no parking restrictions and plenty of available parking. Located almost equidistant to both Forest Hill Station and Honor Oak Park (Overground and National Rail London Bridge connections). Both Forest Hill and Honor Oak Park high streets offer an array of trendy shops, cafes, delis, bars, restaurants and supermarkets. Just up the hill is the fabulous Horniman Gardens and Museum which is a hive of activity throughout the year, in the summer the gardens are a bursting with colour, there are regular live music events on the bandstand, a mini farm and there is nothing better on a cold winters day than to visit the Museum which will entertain all ages. Benson Road is also close to Fairlawn Primary School and Horniman Primary School..
