This delightful cottage style detached bungalow is nestled in a really secluded position on the south side of Shirley. Surrounded by mature woodland, this charming property is perfect for those who like seclusion, enjoy peace and quiet and like being close to nature. Internally, the property is very well presented and has a really cosy and homely feel, and has some very impressive features. The hub of the home is the sociable dining room, perfect for entertaining and everyday family living. There is an attractive almost brand new fitted kitchen and a very pleasant double aspect lounge complete with a log burner, perfect for cosy family evenings in. There are three bedrooms, a really spacious and modern bathroom, a study area and very pleasant leafy outlooks to all sides of the property.

Future Potential
The property already benefits from being extended in the year 2000, there is still much in the way of potential should someone want to create an even larger home. There is also a large loft which has the potential to be converted into first floor accommodation. Additional bedrooms, bathrooms and living spaces could be created on the ground floor too. Obviously any improvement of this nature would require the relevant local authority consents.

Shirley Church Road is a popular and highly regarded tree lined, grass verged road in Shirley. Occupying an enviable position set well back off the road, this property has really pleasant green outlooks to both front and back. However, this picturesque leafy location is in stark contrast to the amenities found on the nearby Wickham Road. For the commuter, bus routes to Bromley and Croydon town centres and East Croydon mainline railway station are within easy reach, where you will find fast rail services to Central London and Gatwick Airport. Local shops, cafes and restaurants can also be found on the Wickham Road. Highly regarded schools such as Trinity, Coloma and Royal Russell are within easy reach as is the library, the tennis club and bowls clubs, numerous woodland walks and prestigious golf courses including The Addington and Shirley Park. For full directions please see the map or contact Allen Heritage Estate Agents in Shirley.
