Property Description
Enjoying a favoured West Purley location, in a sought after road within easy reach of both Purley and Coulsdon town centres with their railway stations, this five bedroom/five reception room Arts & Crafts style detached house stands in a generous plot of over one quarter of an acre and would make a fantastic forever family home as it is, but there is already planning consent for a very large extension!

Approached via a sweeping 'in & out' driveway with parking for several cars, this delightful property offers generous, flexible accommodation of 2627 square feet (244 square metres) over three floors. There is a porticoed porch sheltering the traditional front door, which has stained and leaded light glazed panels and leads to the wide entrance hall with matching stained and leaded windows. An archway at the end of the hall provides a great view inviting you all the way through the house into the garden. Contemporary partially glazed double doors on the right lead to a cosy sitting room - the perfect space to curl up a best-seller from the fitted bookshelves. At the far end of the sitting room a door leads to a bright dual aspect study with custom-made office furnishings and two desk areas making it ideal for those working from home or as a quiet area for teenager's homework. Across the hallway to the left hand side, also accessed via matching double doors is a another reception room with an en-suite shower room/wc. Currently used as a gym and boot-room this could make a great bedroom for a nanny or semi-independent relative.

A spacious family room also leads off the hallway to the right with the exposed brick-wall, inset wood-burning fire and light wood effect flooring giving it a cool Scandi-vibe. This room has been opened up to the sun-room overlooking the rear garden and which now provides a fabulous formal dining area. With its folding doors and lovely outlook onto the mature garden this is a great space for entertaining, or simply enjoying your morning espresso. Fashionable large Crittall-style doors lead back into the smart modern fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room which has a separate utility area.

A broad staircase with original decorative wooden balustrading leads from the hall up to a light galleried landing - a large stained and leaded light window matches those adjacent to the front door below. On the first floor there are four good-sized bedrooms, all with wood-effect hard flooring. There is also a spacious deco style family bathroom, the fitted furniture incorporating twin hand basins in a dark granite working top and there is both a double-ended bath and a separate shower enclosure. A further set of stairs turns up to the top floor where another light-filled landing enjoys a glimpse of garden and has eaves storage. A door leads to the generous double bedroom room which has custom made wardrobes and an en-suite shower room/wc.

Externally the garden at the front is bordered to the road by a red brick wall with wrought iron railings. Two brick pillared entrances lead to the block paved carriage driveway which provides off street parking for several cars. A small garage attached to the left of the property could provide safe storage for bicycles or motorbikes. There is mature hedging to both sides and a variety of shrubs and plants. The large rear garden is slightly terraced and attractively landscaped, well stocked with plants, shrubs and trees. There is an attractively paved patio area adjacent to the house with a lawn beyond. Steps lead up to a secret garden which has a large decked area, just the spot to enjoy a Summer sundowner with friends!

In February 2022 planning permission was granted for a two storey side extension, a two storey rear extension and single storey side and front extensions (Planning Reference 21/03729/HSE - Alternative Reference PP-10026895) which would create an truly amazing property.
Drawings are available on request also.
