Property description

For the owners, this home has suited them and altered with them over the years. When they first came here the dining room stretched across the whole house and made a fabulous space. As time went on they found need for a ground floor bedroom for a relative and so partitioned part of the room; used as a bedroom currently it could be a brilliant study or you may prefer to open it back up and have a bigger dining room again. It's part of the potential of this home.
Looking around the street, others have extended into the loft space and that could be an exciting proposition, one for you to explore. To the front there is a lovely area of garden and many may eye that for off road parking, again something to investigate the possibility of.
So there, potential of several types and already this is a great home without any of those changes. Step through that arched porchway and into a spacious hall and you'll very quickly feel at home. The accommodation flows from the sitting room through the dining room and via double doors into a big kitchen overlooking the garden. One of the nicest things here is looking at greenery and not staring into windows of other people’s homes, the feeling of openness belies your proximity to all the things needed to make modern life work.
It is a very easy home to live in, three bedrooms upstairs as you'd expect and a garden that gives you room to have some fun. Having the railway cutting behind gives that sense of open expanse and, because the line is dropped down, it's surprising how unaware of it you are.
It also means you are not far from the train stations, you have a choice of Streatham or Streatham Hill amongst others. Streatham Hill is less than a mile away and trains from there will whisk you to Victoria in around twenty minutes and Charing Cross in around forty. There are plenty of chools on offer too.
In June 2016 the Evening Standard described Streatham as 'the darling of south-west London', highlighting it as 'Zone three's new homes hotspot to watch'.
Streatham has long been a place to be, many will still remember it as the place to visit the ballroom in the post war years and in 1955 Waitrose opened their first 'Supermarket' here. The nineteen eighties may not have been Streatham's highlight but today the High Street has seen signs of a renaissance, Mary Portas and her focus on revitalising our town centres has helped this improvement and Streatham Green won an award for best public open space in the capital.
With a focus on Zone 3 as buyers seek practical and more affordable homes Streatham's star is once again on the rise and this home could make an incredibly savvy purchase, our clients have loved living here for a long time, over twenty years, we hope you'll be every bit as happy.
