With its authentic Thatch Roof [re-thatched in 2019], solid wall white walls and a cosy interior, it's fair to say this is a quintessentially English 'chocolate box' cottage. These character features combined with a really attractive fitted kitchen, a modern white bathroom, recently installed double-glazed windows and a handy utility cupboard, create a home that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.

Believed to have been built around 1720 as one of two “Lodges” at the entrances to Spring Park House and Farm, the property is a quaint and truly delightful residential dwelling. Whilst retaining its character, the accommodation is ideal for modern life and includes an impressive living area open plan to the fitted kitchen, with two bay windows and a dining area making this a great area for socialising and relaxing alike. An attractive spiral staircase leads up to the first floor which houses two bedrooms [with restricted head heights] and a handy first-floor WC.

We feel this home will suit a range of purchasers from young couples right through to those downsizing, and an internal viewing comes highly recommended.


The property can be found set back on the left-hand side of Wickham Road, on the corner of West Way Gardens. This location is convenient for a wealth of amenities including regular bus services to Bromley, West Wickham and Croydon town centres as well as East Croydon mainline railway station which provides fast rail services to London Bridge, London Victoria, Gatwick Airport and many more. Local shops, restaurants, cafes and schools are also within easy reach. For full directions please contact Allen Heritage Estate Agents in Shirley.
