There are but a few locations where you feel detached from the modern world but can reach central London in under an hour, and this property is one of them! According to TFL it takes just 41 minutes to get to to London Victoria, and this convenience is in stark contrast to the rural setting and secluded feel of this charming home. Recently refurbished to a very high standard, the only way this stunning home can be fully appreciated is by seeing it for yourself. Great for those who love to be surrounded by nature, with the peace and quiet disturbed only by the sound of birdsong, we feel it would make a superb 'writers retreat!' Superbly finished with a luxurious feel throughout, there is a stunning kitchen/diner perfect for entertaining family and friends and there is an impressive bathroom and a handy utility room too. With two double bedrooms, a really peaceful lounge and stunning outlooks, this home comes highly recommneded.
The property is superbly tucked away within the woodland on Shirley Hills. In a very secluded position, this semi detached house, one of the only pair which make up Maberley Villas, the tranquil setting is perfect for those who like peace and quiet and seclusion. Accessed on foot from the car park at Badgers Hole off Oaks Road, or by car off Shirley Hills Road, the location whilst being extremely peaceful, is also very convenient. Bus routes to Bromley and Croydon town centres are within easy reach, as is the Coombe Lane Tram Stop and schools including Coloma, Trinity, Royal Russell and St Johns. There are two quiet popular public houses/restaurants within easy reach in which to enjoy a drink and meal after a long walk through the nearby woods on Shirley Hills or at Lloyds Park. For full directions please see the map or contact Allen Heritage Estate Agents in Shirley.
In recent years the property has undergone some major refurbishment works including;
A brand new kitchen
A brand new bathroom suite
New gas central heating
New double glazed windows and entrance doors
New floor coverings throughout
New Limestone Patio
There is ample space to the side of the property for extensions if larger accommodation is required. Planning Permission was in fact obtained in 2017 for the 'Erection of a single storey side/part first floor rear extension'. Any improvements of this nature will of course require up to date permissions from Croydon Council.
