*** Guide Price £950,000-£975,000 *** Sometimes words are not enough! This is a truly wonderful, lovely, lovely house and garden. You will fall in love with it! This is a brick fronted, semi-detached, early Edwardian Villa built in 1904 within the Culverley Green Conservation Area.
There are four bedrooms, a front reception room, a rear dining room overlooking the garden, a 28ft kitchen, utility room, downstairs WC, bathroom with bath and walk in shower, and another WC upstairs. Outside, the front garden is beautiful, plus there is a driveway, then a passage down the side of the house leads to a 118ft rear garden and 27ft workshop. Not to mention a huge loft upstairs.
The front reception is over 15ft into the bay and retains the decorative cornicing of the period, as does the dining room. The dining room has two sets of patio doors opening onto the garden, with both sets having electric shutters. The kitchen was remodelled 10 years ago to give a central island and extractor, plus a 7ft utility room / pantry, and a glazed natural slate floor, with doors to the garden and to the side passage.
Heading upstairs up the impressive wooden staircase, you come to the four bedrooms, two of which are large doubles and two smaller ones. The third bedroom has been used as a study, and would be ideal for homeworking, but works equally well as a bedroom. The bathroom has a bath and a separate walk in shower. There is a separate WC. The loft is fully boarded out and insulated, and provides a huge space with plenty of options.
A feature of the house is the elements of stained glass at different points throughout the house, such as in the entrance door and above the dining room patio doors. The stain glass window above the stairs was commissioned by the owners and the rays of the sun catch the window as the sun sets.
The 118ft south facing, rear garden has decking just outside the dining room and kitchen, followed by flower beds and lawn. Highlights of the garden include banana trees, 2 plum trees, a fig tree, a magnolia tree, a pear tree, an apple tree, bamboo, a substantial vegetable plot, a pond, plenty of water butts, plus the 27ft workshop and a further shed with electric, plus a store and a wood shed. A gardener's dream!
The current owners love their home and garden of 31 years. They love the wonderful feeling of space, especially the gardens - front and back - which have provided a relaxing way to spend time. The dining room has been their family room - quiet, with great views of the garden. They are now looking to move closer to family outside of London.
Culverley Road, along with the neighbouring roads, has an active residents’ association which is concerned with the preservation of the character and community of the Culverley Green Conservation Area.
The property is located 0.5 miles from both Catford and Catford Bridge stations, and the local high street with many shops and bus routes, plus the Broadway Theatre, Catford Mews 3 screen cinema, supermarkets, restaurants and pubs - Italian (La Pizzeria Italiana), Turkish (EaTurkish, Mekan, Pide), Portuguese, Japanese (Sapporo Ichiban), Chinese, Thai, Lebanese Street Food restaurant (Fayrooz), Catford Bridge Tavern, Bottle and Ninth Life.
