LAUNCHING SATURDAY 10TH JULY. A unique and utterly charming opportunity to purchase this gorgeous 2 double bedroom DETACHED cottage that sits on a large plot with a 70ft x 40ft private landscaped rear garden..

The house is set back from the street by a walled front garden on the narrow part of Blythe Hill Lane, which is a quiet residential street with a wonderful community of residents.

The property offers plenty of kerb appeal from its delightful farmhouse country cottage façade. The original front part of the house was built circa 1850, making it one of the oldest houses in the area.
The front garden has a lawn surrounded by mature boarders of plants and shrubs with a path down the side leading to the side return gate, the front door is up a coupe of steps which leads into a handy entrance porch.

Upon entry, through a wooden farmhouse door, is a double reception room clad in Terracotta floor tiles that lead seamlessly through to the kitchen at the back. The front area is a cosy lounge which has a working wood burner in the fireplace and windows furnished with shutters looking out to the front garden. The rear part of the reception is perfect for a dining area being located adjacent to the kitchen, it has a window to the side of the house which is also furnished with working shutters and there is a large storage cupboard utilising the space under the stairs.

The kitchen dining room is a generous size with plenty of space for a central breakfast bar island or a table and chairs. Worktops run along one side of the room where the sink sits neatly under a window to the side return and there is a stable door that leads to the garden via the side return. The oven and hob has been cleverly fitted into the chimney breast to maximise space and makes a nice feature with exposed bricks. There is also a large storage cupboard housing the boiler.

At the far end of the kitchen is a door with a couple of steps that leads to a very functional utility room and a guest toilet. The utility room has a skylight on above the door and dual aspect windows offering plenty of natural light. Beneath the window to the side is a large butler sink with taps above and worktops with shelves either side. The exit here leads directly onto the private rear garden. This room has been allocated for demolition and rebuilding in the granted plans.

The garden is quite magical as splays outwards extending beyond the boundary of the house. It’s 70ft at its longest and 40ft wide with an array of mature plants shrubs and trees surrounding a raised lawn at the rear. A cobblestone patio wraps around the back of the house offering plenty of character as well as a place for al fresco dining and to the side there is a large central flower bed on a natural bank. The pathway to the side leads down the side return back to the front of the house where there is a secure gate leading to the street.

Upstairs there is a landing which has plenty of space for shelving as well as a storage cupboard. Original stripped and varnished floorboards extend from here through to all the first-floor rooms and there is access to the loft which offers additional storage.

At the front of the house is a good size double bedroom with has original exposed floorboards, a feature fireplace and two traditional windows that illuminate the room with natural light.

The family bathroom has a bathtub with shower above surrounded by tiled walls. There is also a wash hand basin, toilet and heated towel rail. A window to the side offers natural light and ventilation.

The main bedroom is at the back of the house and is a calm and tranquil room to relax in, thanks mainly to the dual aspect windows that offer green aspect in all directions over the garden and beyond. Once again, the floors are the original exposed boards and this room also has a pretty feature fireplace as a centrepiece to offer more character and charm.

For those looking for a support network, there is a fantastic diverse multi-generational community on this street, who have an email and WhatsApp group, share tools and advice, support each other with childcare and Blythe Hill fields holds its famous annual festival. The house is ideally situated transport-wise, with the nearest stations being Honor Oak Park 0.67 miles, Catford Bridge 0.34 miles and Crofton Park 0.8 miles. It is also well positioned for a number of great primary and secondary schools. At the bottom of the Lane is the award-winning Irish pub, the Blythe Hill Tavern with pop up food stalls and live music and a garden playground and there is good high-speed broadband in the area. There is good shopping and restaurants nearby in Croton Park, Honor Oak Park and Catford. This is a great house suitable for all types of people - a must view..
