Generous two double bedroom semi-detached bay-fronted Victorian house of 1213 square feet, with brilliant potential for extension (out and up), and a mature east-facing garden extending nearly 60 feet; with side access. Permit-parking is on-street. Freehold.
Find the house on a popular residential street set between Lewisham and Ladywell stations (walk eight and 10 minutes to these respectively). Lewisham’s on the DLR for Bank/Canary Wharf etc. St Johns Station is yours in 11 minutes, too.
You’re also close to both Hilly and Ladywell Fields, and to Ladywell’s village-style high street, plus Prendergast Vale School and Glass Mill Leisure Centre.
A walled garden sets you back from the street. In the front door and turn right into the front reception (of over 13 feet by over 12), with sash windows to the bay, a handsome period fireplace, and stripped boards to the floor. Double doors connect you to, or divide you from, the second reception - which has French doors to the wide side return area of the garden. You can also access this reception from the hall.
Before you reach the third reception at the foot of the hall, you’ve got your cellar door to your left. This is a useful storage space running to the front of the house.
Next up is a neat and natural breakfast/casual dining room of 11 feet by 9 feet. Beyond is a dated but functioning fitted kitchen. And beyond this a conservatory (timber-framed glazing here) with store/utility, and back door to the pretty garden.
Up to the half-landing and you’ve got a large and windowed bathroom ahead. A modern white suite features here, plus built-in storage, a large sash window to garden views, and a pretty original (feature) fireplace.
Up to the landing proper and you have two double bedrooms. The first on your left is over 11 feet by over 10 feet, with an alcove wardrobe, another charmer of a fireplace, and a sash window to garden vistas.
The twin-sashed largest bedroom sits front of house and is over 16 feet by over 11 feet, with a big bank of built-in wardrobes taking one wall.
Access the sizeable loft space from the landing.
Ladywell Road is your closest high street area with successful little independent businesses such as The Larder Deli and Meat Jon.
Mamma Dough is great for pizzas, and The Ladywell Tavern is a strong local. Other local recommendations within a short walk are Chicha (vibrant Peruvian street food) and Le 5 Terre - offering fresh homemade pasta and sauces - both on Loampit Hill, and Sparrow, near Lewisham Station.
The Talbot pub is also a good local - at the foot of Tyrwhitt Road. Brockley Market in the Lewisham College car park (smarter than it sounds!) is a must-visit of a Saturday.
Central Lewisham is handy for market, high street and charity shopping, and (we think) the best chippy in London.
Hilly Fields and Ladywell Fields are both but around half a mile from the door, or grab a short bus ride to Greenwich Royal Park and Blackheath’s even bigger open spaces.
