Pickwick Estates is proud to offer this fine example of a stunning detached 4 bedroom + study, double fronted, Victorian family home in a quiet and desirable location. Having been lovingly maintained though the years by its current owners this house is a must view! It has a grand double fronted facade, with large sash windows and raised steps leading to an imposing front door. Off of the large central hallway are three reception rooms all of which still maintain many period features such as cornicing, stripped wooden floors and working fireplaces.

To the front of the house as soon as you enter is charming study with large sash windows, on the other side of the entrance hall is a generous reception room with high ceilings, original stripped wooden floorboards and a large sash bay window which floods the room with light. Huge double doors separate this room from a further reception room at the rear of the property which has been extended to create a beautiful dining/family room, illuminated by skylights above and patio doors leading to the garden. This area links nicely with the stylish kitchen breakfast room which is fully fitted with all the mod cons one would need and also has patio doors leading on to the garden.

The landscaped garden is approximately 108ft long and 34ft wide with flower beds surrounding a well maintained lawn and a patio area perfect for al fresco entertainment.

Also on the ground floor is a separate W/C a handy utility room and stairs leading down to a cellar.

On the first floor there are three very large double bedrooms. The two bedrooms at the front of the house both utilise the height of the ceilings with fitted cupboards built into the alcoves of the chimney breast, both rooms also have two large sash windows. The master bedroom at the rear of the property has a feature fireplace, a patio door leading to a balcony overlooking the garden and steps leading up to a spacious en-suite shower room.

From the hallway there are two additional half landings, one of which gives access to the main family bathroom and the other leads to the 4th double bedroom.

Finally, the added extra to this house is a vast loft space which can be easily converted via the half landing from the bathroom. The loft is large enough to stand up in and is currently used as extra storage space, however the potential to add another bedroom is an obvious possibility. The property comes with existing planning permission for converting the loft as well as rearranging the en-suite bathroom by swapping it with the bedroom currently below which will only enhance this lovely family home.

This grand old house is perched about half way up Benson Road which is one of the area's finest tree lined streets, with stunning views over the Kent countryside and within close proximity of an ‘Outstanding’ Ofstead primary school, Horniman Museum and gardens and Forest Hill station (Over ground and National Rail to London Bridge).
