The London Broker is proud to be marketing this delightful four bedroom house in Streatham. This imposing semi detached house has a mature, 30´ front garden which offers an element of privacy, along with off street parking and a garage. Inside, you are greeted with a long and wide hallway with light, oak floors freshly sanded and restored throughout the ground floor to create a warm and fresh feel. To the right is the dining room: this large room has a fireplace (not working) with extensive shelving either side and a lovely bay window which allows ample natural light into the room. Behind this room (you could remove this wall STTP) is the sitting room. A fireplace with mantel over takes centre stage. It is worth noting all downstairs rooms are extremely versatile and can be altered to suit the requirements of any incoming purchaser. The sitting room however, is perhaps the most special room in the house. Large wooden double French windows open out onto a patio area and beautiful views of the large, 100´ garden beyond. This room is south facing, making it the perfect sun trap. The kitchen is next door offering floor and wall cupboards, a gas hob / double oven and space for a family table along with a UPVC door leading outside. The final room downstairs is a bathroom with WC, which is in need of some modernisation.
Up the central staircase you enter a large square hallway leading to three very large double bedrooms and a smaller one that can accommodate a standard double bed. Two of the bedrooms have views over the front of the house whilst the other two over the garden. The rear bedroom offers a small fitted cupboard at one end and a single wooden door at the other which leads onto a balcony with room for a small table. The balcony offers a spectacular sun trap (south facing) with a view over the private (south facing) garden. Moving into the opposite double bedroom, this room has fitted cupboards and a large bay window allowing plenty of natural light into this bright and airy room. As this semi detached house is at the top of the cul de sac it benefits from there being no house directly opposite; instead the house is on the adjoining road giving you extra privacy. Heading around clockwise, the next room is of similar space with a cupboard space similar to the one in the first room mentioned. This room however, has two separate windows giving you the option to make this into two separate bedrooms if required. Across the stairs is a modern large bathroom with a power shower and separate roll top bath, as well as windows overlooking the private garden. A bright and sunny fourth, smaller room, offers a perfect children’s bedroom / office.
Outside, the house offers a sunny garden and outhouses. A brick, wood and glass greenhouse offers lots of space for plants and tools etc. There is also a garage with a side door, and two wooden doors to the front. The dry garage has power and houses the boiler. It would be large enough to accommodate a small car, or a fantastic space for storage. Directly at the rear of the house is a patio area, ideal for alfresco dining in the Summer months. Then moving through a plant covered arch you enter into the delightful private, sunny and secluded garden with mature herbaceous borders, along with an array of trees; including fruit trees. To the rear of the garden is the most shaded part and would be a great spot to put an additional room / office. There is also a small shed for garden equipment.
Belltrees Grove is a very sought after, quiet cul de sac with properties rarely coming up for sale. At the other end of the road is Bishop Grant Catholic School with an Outstanding Ofsted inspection, while other schools in the area include Julian´s and Sunnyhill primary school along with Dunraven secondary. A lane at the end of the road takes you straight down to Streatham High Road in around ten minutes. Whilst a short walk in the other direction takes you to Streatham Common; a large open area to enjoy all year round. To the bottom of the Common is a newly created playground for children of all ages, whilst to the top is a paddling pool with café along with a wooded area for the family to enjoy.
Transportation is excellent with three main line stations; Streatham Common, Streatham and Streatham Hill. The first two are the closest to the property and offer links to London Victoria and London Bridge. Streatham Station (Serviced by Thameslink) offers excellent communication to Blackfriars, Farringdon and beyond. In addition, there are numerous buses which gives access to many parts of Central London, including Oxford Street and Liverpool Street as well as several buses towards Brixton (Victoria Line).
Streatham has increased in popularity hugely over the last few years and is also famous for having the longest high street in Europe. This year the area has welcomed new shops to include Aldi and Marks and Spencer’s, along with a 24hr Tesco arriving a few years ago and Sainsburys and an ice rink. Streatham Common is also extremely well stocked for bistro style pubs offering a great place to socialise. Heading East, up the high street, you will also find some great places to eat, cocktail bars, Virgin Active gym, Pizza Express and the Odeon cinema. Streatham really is a great place to live, work and play, with all this variety on your doorstep.
