An expansive, Grade 2 listed, 4 bedroom Georgian house spanning three floors with rear garden and off street parking close to New Cross Gate Overground station.
This beautiful home benefits from off street parking, in front of the property, with established evergreen trees and shrubberies, providing a green outlook from the front. There are original sash windows throughout and a substantial Georgian panelled door with clear fanlight above. A separate internal porch enables entry to the home without letting out the warmth via additional glass doors before entering the wide hallway.
Off this resides a generous double reception room with large marble mantlepiece adorning the fireplace, original cornicing frames the ceiling and ornate central lighting roses in each room. The rear room, has a large window overlooking the garden, and a separate entrance, creating the possibility of dividing the rooms with folding, panelled, doors.
A half landing downstairs, leads to a landing area with cloakroom, separate toilet and shower and additional storage area. A glass door leads out onto a two-tiered, paved garden with substantial magnolia tree, bamboo flower beds and trellising.
Another half landing down leads to a, fully fitted, neutrally finished, kitchen with breakfast bar. Two windows and glass door provide an abundance of light whilst also providing access out onto the garden.
On this floor there is also a large bedroom with built-in shelves and storage with windows out onto a sunken terrace at the front of the property. Depending on individual requirements this could also serve as a lovely dining room. Another potential bedroom/ storage room resides beside this. From this there is a separate entrance out to the front, which could be utilised to create a granny/au pair residence.
Back on the ground floor there is a half landing up to a bedroom overlooking the garden, another half landing steers you to two further bedrooms and a generous bathroom with original wooden flooring, separate bath, and shower cubicle. (Potentially, there could be original boards throughout the property.)
Another half landing leads to the final bedroom, overlooking the garden.
In addition to the eclectic bars and restaurants in the area, for the weekly grocery shop, there is a large Sainsbury's and Aldi further down New Cross Road.
