PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

A handsome three bedroom, mid terrace Edwardian family home offering plenty of space with well-proportioned rooms, a mature private rear garden and bundles of character and charm.

Upon approach the house is set back from the street by a walled front garden with a hedge. The impressive façade of exposed London stock bricks is complimented by the detailed masonry around the sash windows. A pathway leads to a front porch shielding the original front door with attractive stained glass panels.

Upon entry is the main reception room that fills the whole width of the house. It offers high ceilings with cornicing, a working wood burner in the fireplace and a large bay window that illuminates the room with natural light. The property benefits from original sash windows throughout.

The hallway is open to the reception room and houses the staircase with storage underneath. It offers access to the second reception room and leads to the kitchen breakfast room at the rear.

The second reception/dining room is a lovely cosy space with period features. It offers high ceilings, a central fireplace and beautiful French doors that lead out to the private rear garden via the side return, which is surprisingly wide.

The kitchen breakfast room has been extended to the rear to create a lovely bright family and entertainment space. The ceilings of the extension have been raised and vaulted with a skylight above filling this area with natural light. The kitchen has plenty of wall and base mounted units with a worktop housing a hob with oven and extractor. The sink sits neatly under a bespoke angled glass window that rises up to the ceiling and overlooks the garden. There is a door to the side which offers direct access to the garden via the side return. There is an opportunity to extend the kitchen into this space, of course this is subject to planning, but a precedent has been set by neighbouring properties in the street.

The garden is approximately 33ft (10m) and has two distinct areas, a stone patio closer to the house and a well-kept lawn at the rear that is surrounded by mature plants and shrubs. At the far end of the garden is a raised block patio area that catches the afternoon sun and a shed to the side for gardening tools and equipment.

Upstairs on the half landing is a separate WC and a family bathroom. The bathroom has a shower above the bath, a traditional wash hand basin and a toilet. A sash window overlooks the garden and allows for natural light and ventilation.

At the front of the house are two bedrooms, one single, currently used as a study, and one double. To the rear is a second double bedroom
with stripped and varnished floors and casement window looking over the garden. Both double bedrooms have high ceilings, feature fireplaces and original fitted cupboards.

On the top landing is a linen cupboard, which also houses the hot water tank, and a hatch to the loft with extendable loft ladder. There is further opportunity to extend into the loft space which is a generous area, again this is subject to planning.

Stillness Road is within 500 metres of Honor Oak Park station where there are regular services to London Bridge (around 15mins) as well as London Overground services to Shoreditch and Highbury and Islington. There is also easy access to the Thameslink line at Crofton Park station (around 15 mins walk) for Blackfriars, Farringdon and Kings Cross. The trendy high street at Honor Oak Park boasts a range of independent shops, cafes, bars, a deli and several highly recommended restaurants. A short walk in the other direction gives access to thriving Forest Hill, with its pubs, independent shops, restaurants and highly regarded gym and swimming pool. Nearby green leafy open spaces can be found at Blythe Hill Fields, One Tree Hill and Horniman Gardens, all offering fantastic views of the London skyline. There is also a very good selection of Outstanding and Good primary schools nearby, the closest of which is Stillness School which is literally round the corner! This is an amazing opportunity to buy a truly wonderful family home in an exceptional location.
