Stanley Road, Orpington, BR6

£1,100,000 Freehold

SOLE AGENTS - this EXTENDED, MODERNISED and MUCH IMPROVED detached EDWARDIAN house boasts a SOUTH FACING REAR GARDEN, and is situated in a NO-THROUGH-ROAD in the KNOLL, just a TEN MINUTE WALK TO THE STATION. Viewing is essential to appreciate all that this WONDERFUL & CONVENIENTLY LOCATED HOME has to offer.

The vendors of this handsome Edwardian detached house have spent the past five years sympathetically restoring, modernising and extending it, and it has now become this lovely family home you see today. It enjoys a very peaceful setting towards the bottom of a no-through-road lined with elegant lime trees, and is approximately a ten minute walk from the mainline station, with the High Street being a little less. The property is also well located for a selection of sought-after schools including Newstead Wood, St Olaves, Perry Hall and Crofton schools. Once inside, particular features of note include the contemporary kitchen/family room with bi-fold doors opening directly onto the garden - this is truly the heart of this family home. Other features include, as you would expect with a period property, high ceilings, ornate coving, and picture rails. The rear garden backs approximately south, measures well in excess of 100', and enjoys a high degree of natural seclusion. The vendors really have spent much time, money and consideration in the restoration of this property, and an internal viewing is essential in order to fully appreciate all that this lovely home has to offer.

Salient Features The vendors advise that the property was originally built in 1908. One of the main reasons they bought this house was due to its lovely, peaceful setting, and the fact that it is only an approximately ten minute walk to the mainline station. What particularly attracted them to this property was the fact that a fast train from Orpington can reach London Bridge in just over 15 minutes - ideal for City workers.
In the past 5 years, as well as having been extended, the house has been rewired. New double glazing is installed throughout : the front windows - in keeping with the original character - having period style "monkey tail" latches. There is a new boiler and hot water cylinder (large enough to be sufficient should the property be extended). There is a comprehensive security alarm system fitted together with CCTV. The extensive loft area is boarded, with lighting, and accessed via a retractable ladder. Subject to building regulations, there is certainly potential for a loft conversion to provide for a spacious master bedroom with en-suite (as other neighbours in the road have done).
