Property Summary

This delightful and beautifully presented terraced house enjoys a desirable location close to Carshalton Ponds and The Grove park and offers plenty of potential for first-time buyers.

Briefly comprising a comfortable living room, spacious and well-appointed kitchen/diner, a double and single bedroom and a house bathroom; the property strikes the perfect balance between period charm and modern living, also boasting an outbuilding to the rear, currently converted into a handy office.

A pleasant and private courtyard garden is located to the rear, while the house is equipped with low-energy lighting throughout and includes a programmable, gas-fired central heating system.

INTERIOR

LIVING ROOM:
13’ 1” (3.98m) x 9’ 10” (2.99m)

The front door opens directly onto the living room which benefits from a solid-wood floor, bright décor and a pleasing, recessed, cottage-style fireplace, complete with a stone hearth and solid oak mantle.

Alcoves either side of the chimney breast are fitted with open shelving with rustic-style cupboards beneath. Bi-folding wooden shutters over the windows add to the restful, country-home ambiance, although more modern touches include a USB charging point, TV and wifi connection.

KITCHEN / DINER:
13’ 1” (3.98m) x 10’ 10” (3.30m)

Ample natural light floods the kitchen through both picture windows and a glass-panelled external door opening onto the courtyard garden to the rear.

Beneath the window is a Belfast sink set below a chrome, swan neck mixer tap. There is space and plumbing for a washing machine to the right while an electric oven, grill and gas hob to the left are located below an extractor.

Solid-wood worktops either side of the kitchen match an oak mantle set above a decommissioned but authentic, brick-built inglenook fireplace. Additional features include a tiled floor, a large larder space and plenty of additional storage in partially-glazed base and wall units above and below the worktops.

Ceramic splashback tiles have also been fitted above the sink and adjacent cooking and preparation spaces. Light after dark is provided by twin suspended dome lights.

OFFICE / STUDY:
11’ 3” (3.42m) x 7’ 5” (2.25m)

The office/study can be accessed from the courtyard garden to the rear and benefits from a hard-wearing, engineered wooden floor, bright white décor and recessed overhead LED spotlights.
A window currently equipped with venetian blinds and a roof skylight both allow natural light, with plenty of room inside for a desk and filing and storage cabinets. The room is also equipped with floor-level power sockets and useful USB charging points.

BEDROOM 1:
13’ 1” (3.98m) x 9’ 8” (2.94m)

Tastefully decorated and equipped with a solid-wood floor, the double bedroom overlooks the front of the property but also benefits from bi-folding wooden shutters over the double-glazed sash windows.

A period-style, cast-iron fireplace sits within the chimney breast with alcoves either side, although the room also incorporates an integral wardrobe. Warmth in winter is provided by a wall-mounted radiator equipped with individual controls.

BEDROOM 2:
10’ 8” (3.24m) x 6’ 4” (1.94m)

Currently equipped as a nursery, the single bedroom at the rear of the property benefits from carpets and a wall-mounted radiator for warmth, although it also boasts its own period-style, cast-iron fireplace.

Adjacent to the left is a useful integral wardrobe with a locker space above. A second integral cupboard can also be found to the right of the door on entry.

BATHROOM:
7’ 10” (2.38m) x 6’ 4” (1.94m)

The house bathroom is also predominantly decorated in white, although a black-and-white, tiled chequerboard floor provides a pleasing contrast.

The white panel bath is equipped with a timber side panel, a hinged glass splash screen and a shower above. The suite is completed by a WC and drop-in hand basin, the latter set within a marble-effect washstand.

EXTERIOR

This pretty terraced cottage fronts directly onto West Street Lane where on-street parking is controlled by week-day permits.

A door from the kitchen/diner opens onto a private, flagstone courtyard flanked by head-high timber fence panels, with raised beds beneath ideal for pot plants.

LOCATION

West Street Lane is located off West Street just a little north of Carshalton Ponds and the war memorial within easy reach of local amenities including a number of pubs and a Chinese takeaway

However Carshalton centre is only a short walk, offering a Co-op convenience store, a Sainsbury’s Local, a pharmacy, coffee shops, cafes, a pizzeria, fish-and-chips shop and an Indian restaurant and takeaway.

Buses to Malden Manor and Belmont both run regularly from West Street. Carshalton Station is only a 300m walk, offering Southern and Thameslink services direct to St Albans, Epsom, Sutton, Dorking and London Victoria, the latter usually no more than half an hour away by train.

Leisure opportunities nearby include walks around The Grove. Westcroft Leisure Centre boasts a swimming pool, gym and fitness studios. There are also allotments located not far from the station adjacent to Carshalton Athletic Football Club’s home ground.
