Property Summary

This beautifully presented, extended, semi-detached house enjoys a sought-after south London location on a pleasant, tree-lined residential street and boasts a number of desirable features including off-street parking, an integral single garage and a delightful private, enclosed rear garden

The property is equipped with a programmable gas-fired central heating system, double glazing and includes a downstairs WC. Amenities close by include a number of schools, parks and gardens, a doctors’ surgery, a post office and convenience store.

INTERIOR

RECEPTION HALL:

The glass-panelled front door is flanked by a decorative stained glass window, allowing plenty of light to flood the reception hall, which is decorated in bright neutral colours and fitted with an engineered wooden floor and hard-wearing welcome mat.

Warmth is provided by a wall-mounted radiator, with stairs on the right-hand side rising to the first floor landing. A large storage cupboard is located beneath while internal doors on the left lead through to the separate dining room and living room. One more ahead opens onto the extended kitchen/diner.

LIVING ROOM:
15’ 6” (4.72m) x 12’ 8” (3.85m)

Ample natural light also floods through bay windows into the living room which overlooks the front of the property. A wall-mounted radiator beneath provides warmth in the winter months, supplemented by a contemporary electric fire installed in the fireplace, framed by a marble hearth and mantle.

Decorated in understated warm colours, the room includes carpets, discreet wall-mounted uplighters, a TV and Ethernet connection, and plenty of space for soft-furnishings.

DINING ROOM:
11’ 11” (3.63m) x 11’ 11” (3.62m)

Boasting an eye-catching, traditional, period-style fireplace framed by ceramic tiles and a decorative mantle, the dining area is equipped with an engineered wooden floor. Light after dark comes from a candelabra-style ceiling fitting, although double patio doors and three-quarter-length windows allow plenty of natural light during the day - as well as direct access to the delightful and private rear garden.

The room is heated by a wall-mounted radiator and offers plenty of space for a family-sized table and chairs as well as room for storage units or a sideboard if required.

KITCHEN / DINER
Kitchen: 11’ 10” (3.61m) x 8’ 3” (2.52m)
Dining area: 8’ 6” (2.60m) x 7’ 3” (2.22m)

Now extended to include a separate dining space as well as a cooking and preparation area to delight any chef, the kitchen also offers additional family space as well as room for a large, American-style fridge freezer.

Tiled throughout, the room is also equipped with a wall-mounted radiator for warmth with light after dark from modern, recessed, overhead LED spotlights.

A breakfast bar separates the dining space from the kitchen area, which benefits from an overhead skylight window included in the extension.

Additional features incorporated in the G-shaped design include a double, eye-level oven and grill, a one-and-a-half bowl sink with a mixer tap and rinser attachment set below windows overlooking the rear garden and a five-ring gas hob beneath an extractor.

Ample storage is also offered in shaker-style base and wall units, with solid-wood worktops between. Additional natural light is allowed by an extra window overlooking the side of the house while an open archway leads through to the downstairs WC as well as a solid-wood internal door allowing access to the garage.

GARAGE / DOWNSTAIRS WC:
Garage: 13’ 9” (4.19m) x 6’ 8” (2.03m)

The downstairs WC has been finished to a contemporary design and includes a wood-finish floor and tiled walls with mosaic accents.

A dual-flush WC is located beneath an opaque window overlooking the rear garden with a trough-style, console hand-basin set within a vanity unit located below a mirrored cabinet.

The garage can be accessed via an internal door from the hallway adjacent to the kitchen diner as well as via the up-and-over door from the driveway.

BEDROOM 1:
15’ 6” (4.73m) x 11’ 11” (3.63m)

Overlooking the front of the property through large bay windows, the master bedroom is carpeted, heated by a wall-mounted radiator and equipped with fixtures and fittings for a wall-mounted, flat-screen TV. Recessed alcoves either side of the chimney breast are also ideal for larger pieces of furniture.

BEDROOM 2:
12’ 2” (3.70m) x 11’ 11” (3.63m)

Currently used as a playroom, the second bedroom also benefits from ample natural light through three-panel casement windows overlooking the rear gardens.

Decorated in subtle colours and heated by a wall-mounted radiator, the room is also carpeted and comfortably large enough to accommodate a double bed, wardrobes and additional storage if required.

BEDROOM 3:
17’ 8” (5.39m) x 7’ 0” (2.13m)

Located above the garage and benefiting from windows overlooking both the front and rear of the property, Bedroom 3 is also large enough to be used as a double. Equipped with wall-mounted uplighters, the room is currently decorated in a soft lilac and includes carpets and a wall-mounted radiator for warmth

BEDROOM 4:
8’ 2” (2.48m) x 7’ 3” (2.22m)

Currently used as a child’s bedroom, the property’s only single room is decorated a vibrant blue and equipped with carpets and a wall-mounted radiator beneath a double casement window overlooking the front of the house. However, it could be easily converted for use as a home office if required or perhaps used as a separate dressing room adjacent to the master.

BATHROOM:
7’ 3” (2.22m) x 5’ 9” (1.74m)

Matching the downstairs WC in design, the house bathroom also benefits from a water-resistant wood-finish floor, wall tiles with mosaic accents and a frosted window overlooking the rear garden.

The modern suite includes a white panel bath, a large console hand basin set within a vanity unit including both cupboards and drawers and incorporating the dual-flush WC and concealed cistern.

EXTERIOR

The property sits a little back from the road, fronted by a block-paved garden leading to the integral single garage and offering off-street parking for at least two cars.

Boundaries are marked by well-maintained timber fencing on two sides with the drive separated from the pavement by a low brick wall. A mature tree and an ornamental shrub help to provide both shade and some screening from the road in the summer months. A brick-and-tile step leads up to the front door, which is sheltered by a slate porch roof.

The delightful, terraced rear garden can be accessed either via the double patio doors from the dining room or via a separate glass-panelled external door from the hallway adjacent to the kitchen.

Plenty of shade and privacy is assured by the mature trees screening the rear of the house, as well as the head-high boundary fencing on all three sides.

The large, flagstone patio stretches across the entire rear façade of the house with steps leading up to a well-maintained lawn, bordered by beds planted with flowers and shrubs either side. Another flight of steps beyond leads onto the final grassy terrace currently used as a shady play area and also incorporating a small timber shed.

Additional features in the rear garden include exterior lighting, an outside tap and some trellis work for climbing plants.

LOCATION

South Way is a pleasant, tree-lined residential road in a sought-after and convenient location a couple of miles to the east of central Croydon. The property is within easy reach of a selection of schools, not far from some lovely walks in Shirley Hills Woods and Coombe Park, and less than a kilometre from amenities in Shirley itself, including a community centre, doctors’ surgery, post office, convenience store and off-licence.

Shirley High School is just a short walk away, Trinity School just a little further along Upper Shirley Road offers independent education while the Harris Primary Academy – rated as a “good” school by Ofsted in 2019 – is within 200m of the house. The Pinewood Scouting Centre and the Little Elms Daycare Nursery are additional facilities close by which may be of interest to parents.

Public transport links serving the area include buses to Bell Green and Croydon from nearby West Way and Shirley Way. Southeastern trains from West Wickham Station run regularly towards Hayes and London Charing Cross – the latter usually around 40 minutes away.

Alternatives rail services from East Croydon Station include Southern and Thameslink services to Portsmouth, Southampton, Reigate, Horsham, Brighton, Cambridge and both London Victoria and London Bridge.
