With a Guide Price of £1,500,000 TO £1,700,000 Hunters in Forest Hill are excited to market a unique property which we believe is a wonderful example of a beautiful period style Victorian detached house that has retained many of its original features whilst also offering many modern adaptations to bring it in-line for a wonderful family home.
The property is located on Waldenshaw Road which is notably one of Forest Hill’s premier roads and a conversation area. The road is wide, tranquil and offers a mix of property styles, however it’s highly acclaimed substantial period houses have become increasingly rare in recent years. This is one such house.
Offering approximately 3,000 sq ft of space, this 6 bedroom detached house is substantial for the Forest Hill area as there are few other properties would rival its size and style.
The property benefits from magnificent high ceilings adopting fantastic coving throughout in keeping with its age and style. Grand fireplaces with cast iron inserts and ornate surrounds can be found in many of the rooms throughout the property as well as beautiful sash windows allowing it to maintain its period feel. Most of the windows in the property are double-glazed and have been recently refurbished.
Set over 4 floors the property offers every aspect required for a modern day family home. As you enter on the ground floor there is a wide hallway with stripped wooden floors, a reception room and 2 double rooms which have been carefully converted into two offices. There is also a separate bathroom.
From here you will go downstairs to the lower ground floor which really is the centre piece of this magnificent property. There is a reception room, beautifully renovated open plan dining room and kitchen which lead to a recently created approximately 270sqft conservatory with sliding doors offering direct access to the beautifully land-scaped garden. The conservatory is adorned with a selection of carefully chosen plants, lighting and underfloor electric heating to offer the ultimate setting in any weather, be it day or night time. There are 2 additional small utility, one used a laundry room, the other containing boiler and electricals.

The kitchen offers bespoke built in units with high end appliances including a new Lacanche range over with induction hob and hood. The slate tiled floor also has electric underfloor heating.

On the first floor there are two equally sized double bedrooms accompanied by a master bathroom with underfloor heating, vaulted ceiling and Velux windows. There is also a walk-in-wardrobe. On the second-floor are two further double bedrooms and an additional family bathroom. There is access to an attic above the 2 bedrooms which may be used for storage.

In the garden you will find a selection of fruit trees yielding grapes, apples, pears, plums and cherries. An array of carefully landscaped plants, a vegetable patch, trees, a vegetable patch, a potting shed and a fish pond give this garden a wonderfully peaceful and tranquil feel. To the side of the house there is a staircase which leads to a gate and alleyway with access to an historic air-raid shelter currently seen on the floor-plan as a shed and used as a secure bike store.

The property also offers a 3kW Solar PV system with grid tied inverter and 5kWh battery storage which is enough to export to the grid on sunny afternoons and power the house through most of the night.

A wonderful house that should be viewed at the earliest opportunity
