Coming on the market for the first time in nearly 30 years, a beautiful and much loved 4 bedroom semi-detached Victorian house moments from Brockwell Park. Meticulously refurbished and extended by the current owner, the house is finished to a high standard yet it retains much of its period charm and character. It features a bright front reception room, a second reception room/dining room at the rear and a spacious modern kitchen/breakfast room with fitted cabinets and quartz worktops. There are 4 bedrooms upstairs, a modern bathroom and a spacious shower room. A garden, the owner's pride and joy, is thoughtfully designed and a perfect place to relax.
Transport links are excellent and include both Herne Hill and Tulse Hill stations offering direct and quick access to London Victoria, London Bridge and The City.
Herne Hill with their wide selection of cafes and shops, as well as award winning farmers' market is within a 10-15 minute walk.
In owner's words:
I have loved living in both the house and the area. The house has always been a happy and friendly place, It is well set back from the road in front and shielded by vegetation so is unexpectedly quiet and peaceful despite being on a busy road - which is also a plus when coming home on a bus at night, as the bus stop is so close and well lit. The back garden is not overlooked. The railway line behind is a woodland corridor so the place is full of birdsong, and the tramline is quiet at night and weekends. The garden gets sun all through the day, and the south facing fence has been great for the tomatoes this year.
The house has been my home for 27 years and I've constantly maintained it and made improvements. I've loved the high ceilings and sense of space and privacy the house gives. The kitchen has always been the heart of the home, and it's been a great space to welcome friends and entertain, as well as cosy evenings in the winter with the log burning stove in the lounge.
