About the property

Sleeps 5. 3 Bedrooms. 2 Baths.

Tastefully decorated three bedroom Victorian property. Situated in a quiet location opposite an allotment this house is not overlooked by any other houses at the front - a unique selling point for a London home!

Sydenham, Lower Sydenham and Penge stations are all in close proximity and travel to London Bridge & Canary Wharf takes 15 mins. Sydenham also has a line straight to Shoreditch so communications are great.

The parks of Dulwich and restaurants and cafes of Dulwich Village and East Dulwich are also a short drive or bus journey away. Sydenham itself has a number of cafes, a gastro pub and a couple of good Italian restaurants.

The house was renovated a few years ago so everything is in good condition and in working order. All the appliances were purchased new two years ago.

The kitchen has a large gas 7 hob range cooker and an extending table to seat 4-8. The kitchen is very very well equipped with Dualit appliances and, a Magimix and a KitchenAid. There is ample storage space and plenty of plateware, glassware and serving and cooking items for entertaining. There is also a Siemens dishwasher, Samsung Washer/Dryer and AEG tall fridge freezer as well as a Smart TV in the kitchen. The floor is slate and the décor is stylishly low key. There is a small downstairs loo that is situated under the stairs.

There are two doors leading from the kitchen into the small 'courtyard' garden with new patio furniture for 8 people and a barbeque. No grass to cut either!! There is a park just around the corner if there are children that need a run around!

The sitting room is a large double reception room and has two 3-seater sofas plus a L Shaped sofa bed that is a large king size bed when pulled out. A flat screen TV with an Apple TV installed is also in the sitting room. There is also a working fireplace.

Upstairs there is a split level landing creating a feeling of space. The back bedroom overlooking the garden is currently a single childs bedroom and has a desk and a large wardrobe with two outside windows it is a lovely light room. A new single bed is due to replace the bed in the photo.

The main bathroom is plain in decor with a shower and bath, its a large room so a perfect family bathroom.

The second bedroom has a double bed and wall to wall wardrobes, this room also has a flat screen TV and Xbox.

The main bedroom is large and bright at the front of the house so is a lovely light, bright room. There is a great deal of storage space with wall to wall/ceiling to floor fitted wardrobes along one wall. The bed is king size and there is a small flatscreen TV, dressing table and art deco mirror, bedside tables and standing tallboy.

The house is operated on gas central heating and is in a lovely location close to Central London, the City and also to the surrounding countryside of Surrey and Sussex and Gatwick is only a 45 min drive away.

About Amanda Botterill

I am a single mum with two children, our house has been a joy to live in! It's a great location which is ideal for getting to central London and/or the south coast (we often drive to Brighton for a day out!). My partner lives in the States so we travel a couple of times a year for a few weeks at a time and want to rent the house out so that it is lived in and this also helps with the flight costs!

Amanda Botterill purchased this house in 2013

What makes this house unique

The house is great for kids and entertaining, as a keen cook the kitchen is extremely well equipped with lots of gadgets! There isn't any grass in the garden however but there is a large park just around the corner that the kids play football on and there is a huge wooden house like climbing frame.

Being in London the house is unique as it isn't overlooked by any other property as it is in a cul de sac type road, opposite an allotment so is really quiet and yet so close to the action if required!

Sehr schöne Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Haben dieses Haus über fünf Wochen gemietet. Wir (ich und drei Klassenkameradinnen) waren von der Schule aus in London. Das Haus ist sehr sauber und ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Dazu ist die Mieterin super freundlich. Guter Anschluss an die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel und das Zentrum, überall gibt es Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (Lebensmittel). Können es nur empfehlen das Haus zu mieten.
