The closer you look at this home the better it seems to get on every level, from fabulous accommodation to the convenience the location brings for living life.
This is a home that is all about family, about raising the kids and having fun doing it. It's a home that brings you together, gives you independence when you need it and gives everyone a sense of space.
It is also somewhere that has changed quite considerably whilst the current owners have been here.
'It was looking rather unloved when we first saw it', they told us, 'but we knew it would be somewhere we'd love living, we could see what it could become'.
Today you will find a really super detached home with an expansive kitchen and breakfast/dining area that is made for entertaining. Throw open the French Doors and when guests arrive they can circulate into the garden. Pull back the Bi-Fold doors in the living room and suddenly this house seems to be at one with the outdoors, blending almost seamlessly.
There's another dining room, that's right another one, as you enter the home. The space, made open, provides somewhere to sit and eat with a different, perhaps more intimate feel from that wonderful kitchen area at the rear of the house.
Upstairs you seem to lose yourself in the bedrooms, if you have a teenager then the top floor will probably be where you lose them to. Like a suite in its own right it provides two bedrooms, one with en-suite but gains special character when used, as it currently is, as one unit.
The first floor provides four bedrooms, all individual, all with plenty of room to avoid arguments over who has the best one, although mum and dad's room does have a lovely en-suite, that's a done deal. There's a family bathroom for the kids to use and to the front plenty of parking and a garage. The utility room is perfect for getting the laundry out of sight. To the rear the garden is big enough for most sensible families. Trees around provide privacy and a lovely feel without overbearing. The patio area spreads along the rear of the home allowing you to step from living room and wander along to the kitchen, to sit, eat and drink or mingle with friends and not encroach on the lawn. A raised pond provides year round interest. It's a garden that favors busy people, one to enjoy but not somewhere you feel you'll forever be striving to maintain.
Around the area the important things to know include the fact there are a number of Good and Outstanding schools nearby. A nursery is literally just across the road and Purley Downs Golf Club is on your doorstep. Transport links are excellent with a number of options for commuters. Trains run from Sanderstead to London Bridge with around a twenty-five minute journey time and from Purley Oaks, trains run to London Victoria in around thirty-four minutes. There are plenty of options to explore for shopping, dining and fun things to do.Get in touch if you like this home.
