It's no secret that we love these homes and when you wander through you'll know why.
We love this fabulous group of homes, five striking Grade II Listed houses that grab your attention the moment you see them. For us their lure is not just about the looks, the four floors of accommodation or the features they contain, it's about other things that also make life special.
Yes, this is a conservation area too, one of those locations that we preserve for future generations and just beside it is the wonderful Foots Cray Meadow, a wonderful park stretching across two hundred and forty acres. With the river Cray running through it, tree lined banks provide habitat for a variety of wildlife, you may see kingfishers here, certainly ducks and other water fowl. We have seen swans with cygnets, herons and many different birds. It is a wonderful place for a stroll and the scenery alters as you explore. Find the Penny Farthing Bridge and then head out to the far side of the meadow for a drink and a meal at a pub, there’s more than one route to take so reason to enjoy the stroll again and again.
Of those homes in the terrace, this was the first to receive planning permission for a ground floor extension to the kitchen. That application has lapsed but two other homes of these five have since had permission granted and so this may be something you wish to revisit and plan for the future.
Each house in the terrace has its own charm, uniqueness, different fireplaces, alterations across the centuries families have instigated and yet each retains that connection with the past, that feeling that you are part of an ever-continuing story, a custodian for the next generation.
Outside there is a rear garden that was awash with colour when we did our photo shoot, from a stunning camellia that obviously loves being here.
One of the most useful aspects of the rear garden is having space to park a car, an access lane serves just these five homes, easy to miss if you don't know to look for it.
For a family, this home has a sense of practicality, three double bedrooms, a shower room and a bathroom that is truly spacious.
Local shops are nearby as are schools, a nursery and a David Lloyd Gym just around the corner.
It is very easy to fall in love with such a home and We look forward to showing you around.Get in touch if you like this home.
