This is a home that has bundles of character yet provides modern comfort, all thanks to the care and attention the current owners have lavished upon it.
For the current owners finding this home prompted one of those lovely moments of clarity. Grade II Listed and rambling over four floors it has all the character one might hope for, fireplaces, beams and nooks and crannies. Back when they first saw it, the house needed work yet they could see what a wonderful home could be made of it.
They've succeeded admirably in the intervening years and when they move they will leave an exciting opportunity for the next owners to add their very special mark to the development of the house, more in a moment on that one.
View this charming home and you'll wander through captivated by the wood floors in the living room and dining room. You'll be impressed by the bathroom into which they've artfully added a lovely shower and fitted a slipper bath with cunning niches that are designed to hold a wine glass; how many of you have thought to do that? You may not often get the chance to soak in a bath but it's something wonderful to dream of doing and we all need moments to aspire to. The kitchen will surprise you, thoughtfully fitted it holds a slim line dishwasher and has units wrapping around to make fantastic use of the space, all helped by the separate utility room. We mentioned opportunity for the future didn't we. Planning permission was passed 4/6/14 application 14/00371/LBC, for a Single storey rear infill extension, relocation of WC and removal of internal wall. This will make for a great space to design and fit your dream kitchen into! If you fancy making changes to this Listed home you’ll need to revisit that application or perhaps explore your own ideas.
It's a pleasure wandering through the four floors of accommodation here, a huge walk in wardrobe is an unexpected surprise and then there are lots of original cupboards, perfect storage space for the things we all love to have around us. The cellar is a fabulous place for storage too.
This is a home where the important things are the ones you don't notice, the work the owners have done that is often taken for granted but is essential. The house has been repointed, electrics upgraded, radiators replaced and floors redone, we mentioned the ground floor ones didn't we, they look stunning.
It is a home that is about life and the private and important moments. Foots Cray Meadow is just moments away, a 150 acre park alongside the river Cray that makes for delightful walks and picnics. It's a wildlife haven and somewhere, the like of which, many never get to enjoy.
Schools abound and the owners will endorse the local nursery, one of the things they and their daughter will sorely miss after moving.
In a nutshell, this is a super period home, garden, off road parking and a location that is convenient make it a brilliant choice and we look forward to showing you around.Get in touch if you like this property.
