This is one of those homes that gets us excited because it provides more joy than we anticipated.
Twenty seven years of making life special for this family, now it's your opportunity to enjoy this super home.
Children have grown up here and the house has grown with them. Downstairs an extension to the rear has created a fabulous kitchen which combines a dining area and family space, room for a sofa, for an office or homework space and the former dining room is now an unforgetable office space and will make a great TV/Film room; it can be used in so many ways, how is down to what you desire.
The shower downstairs is incredibly practical, great for a family, useful if someone has managed to get themselves filthy working on a project in the garage or in the garden and, for a family with dogs, well a shower room near the back door can be a life saver can't it.
The living room seems to soak up sofas, you easily feel you can fit everyone in, the beautiful bay window fills this space with light and the fireplace provides a traditional focal point.
Upstairs the four bedrooms all provide great space, our favourite at the moment, and we'll let you discover it yourselves, has a wall hatch to the loft, it's something that, as children, we'd be so excited to see and be crying out for a play space beyond to be created, it will make the stuff of children’s novels. That aside, and don't get the kids too excited in advance because plans are passed for a super loft conversion. This is one of those lucky homes where the layout of the stairs makes going up into the loft space so much more straightforward, you'll lose that kids play space we dream of but you will have a home that provides five bedrooms and still manages to be balanced.
Outside all works so well too. The front of the house is block paved providing parking off road. Access to the side of the home, next door has right of access too, leads to a garage. Bikes, motor bikes and small cars will make the journey. It has proved to be an invaluable feature and with an electric garage door so useful. You can get to and from the garden here as well, a garden that backs onto other gardens, looking out across them you see the wooded hillside of Oxleas.
In the garden a grape vine winds around and over a gazebo, it provides a perfect dining spot and somewhere from which to admire the space here through the year as it changes in colours and textures. There's storage too for those items you need to keep the garden in shape and the family occupied whilst out there.
Loving a home needs much more than just great accommodation and, talking to the owners, you quickly sense how important the community is to them. Longstanding friendships, people to rely on over the years and friendly faces in local shops.
Walk around the streets nearby and you will find all manner of useful shops, great cafes, a fabulous bakery, the things on hand that make day to day living easy and pleasurable.
Gordon Primary School is so close, literally seeming to be around the corner when you walk to it.
It is also an easy walk to Eltham Station and from there London Bridge can be as little as fourteen minutes away. Nearby, The Tudor Barn is a great destination too, somewhere for a meal and to take a stroll around Well Hall Pleasaunce one of Greenwich's Green Flag Award-winning sites with historic links to Thomas More, Henry VIII's chancellor and in more recent years to E Nesbit, well known author of The Railway Children amongst other works.
There is so much to life here; it is a great home in a wonderfully practical location.Get in touch if you like this home.
