Externally there is a lot to enjoy here. The stunning walled frontage is formally landscaped with low box hedging, topiary trees and a carriage drive way set behind iron railings and electric gates.
The immense southerly rear garden (187) is utterly delightful with a very grand rear porch and a deep patio providing ample seating and dining space, and this leads to a vast grassed area with flower beds and vegetable patch, all flanked with mature trees and shrubs. Outbuildings include a potting shed and a 162 sq ft garden cabin (with toilet and kitchenette) offering additional space for perhaps a home office, play room or similar.
Once inside the bright entrance hall features a striking central staircase and access to the three reception rooms. Hallmark Edwardian features including tall ceilings, attractive cornicing, ceiling roses, architraves and skirtings are abundant here.
The absolutely delightful living room is a sizeable 500 sq ft with a pair of double doors each set within a recessed bay opening to the rear garden with wonderful views and giving considerable light to this room, and there are two original substantial stone fireplaces creating focal points to frame this grand space.
From here a door leads to the kitchen/dining room (also accessed from the entrance hall). Again a very large space and this runs the full depth of the house with windows to the front and double doors to the garden at the rear allowing light to pour in.
The stunning bespoke kitchen is fitted with painted shaker style high, low and tall cabinets and display shelving; double range oven with extractor hood above, microwave, coffee machine, wine fridge, dishwasher, American fridge freezer and a large curved central island with extended granite surface to create a breakfast bar.
The dining section is an ample size with matching cabinetry shelf unit and there is access to the cellar from here. The laundry room is conveniently off the kitchen and also gives internal access to the garage. The final reception room is situated at the front of the house approached via double doors from the entrance hall and there is a guest cloakroom to complete the ground floor rooms.
Four of the six bedrooms are on the first floor. The principal suite has an Edwardian hallmark box bay window overlooking the garden and includes a fabulous dual aspect ensuite with standalone oval bath tub, large walk-in shower, twin basins and granite topped vanity units. This leads to bedroom four which is currently set up as a large dressing room (also accessed from the hall) with window and a wide range of fitted wardrobes and drawers. Bedrooms two and three also have ensuites, both including a bath. Bedrooms five and six (with eaves storage) are on the second floor and share a family bathroom.
Set within the Bickley Park Estate this is a highly desirable road which is also very convenient with many walkable facilities approx: local shops/pub at Widmore Green (10 mins), Bickley or Elmstead Woods stations (15 mins), Bullers Wood Schools for Girls and Boys (both 6 mins), Breaside Prep School (10 mins), Bickley Park School (13 mins), Scotts Park Primary (15 min).
