They Don’t Build Them Like This Anymore. You Can Keep Your Architect-designed New Build Eco Homes. If You’re Looking For A Spacious Family Home With Timeless Elegance And Style You Can’t Get Better Than This Imposing Three-storey Victorian Semi.

They Don’t Build Them Like This Anymore. You can keep your architect-designed new build eco homes. If you’re looking for a spacious family home with timeless elegance and style you can’t get better than this imposing three-storey Victorian semi.

Large families will fall in love with this superb, substantial home. Or you may just like having enough space so everyone can do their own thing. Either way, this beautiful five-bedroom Victorian semi has so much for the whole family to enjoy, inside and out.

There’s something undefinable and special about grand period properties like this. And it goes beyond the high ceilings and gorgeous period features.

Perhaps it’s because they’ve been the setting for countless period dramas. Or perhaps they just feel like a proper ‘grown up’ property. It’s true they come with a certain gravitas you don’t get with a more modern family home.

As soon as you step through the beautiful stained glass front door into the hall you’ll sense that this property will satisfy all your period property desires.

The ground floor has a traditional layout, with a 9m long bay-fronted living/dining room - created by opening two separate reception rooms.

The heart of a family home is surely the kitchen. Here the welcoming shaker-style kitchen/diner is a room where everyone will love getting together.

There’s a handy utility room at the rear with both a shower and w/c.

You can access the secluded back garden through a uPVC split stable-style door from the kitchen/diner.

The 24m south-facing garden has something for everyone, with a small lawn, mature borders and plenty of places to sit out and enjoy the sun.

The first floor has three double bedrooms, the family bathroom and a separate w/c.

Some people love having a separate bathroom and toilet - it can certainly be handy if everyone is rushing together to head out in the morning! But if you prefer to just have one room it would be easy enough to combine them into one more luxurious bathroom.

The front bedroom is worthy of a special mention, and not just because of its 24m2 size. French doors lead out to a full-width balcony where you can sit out with a cuppa and a good book and watch the world go by…

The top floor has a further two double bedrooms. If you’ve got older kids the second floor may be the perfect home within a home for them - and guarantee a little peace and quiet for you downstairs!

There’s off-street parking infront of the property which also means there’s scope to fit an EV charger to beat the ULEZ charges.

As a family-friendly property, it’s good to know that you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to high-quality schools.

There’s a choice of independent fee-paying schools in Croydon, including the nearby Whitgift School. But with all the local schools being rated either “Good” or “Outstanding” by Ofsted you may not feel the need to pay fees.

St Peters Primary School is closest, being only a 2-minute drive or a 6-minute walk away.

Older kids have a little further to travel to the “Outstanding” Harris Academy but it’s still only a 20-minute walk or less than a 10-minute bike ride away.

It’s only a 5-minute drive or a 15-minute bus journey to a great selection of big-name shops, cafés and restaurants in Croydon town centre.

And if you prefer to get out into the great outdoors, the beautiful Croham Hurst Woods nature reserve is literally at the end of Selsdon Road.

The beautiful ancient woodland covers a rather steep hill. The climb to the top is satisfyingly breathless but the rewards will be worth it - thanks to the breathtaking panoramic views.

If you need to commute into town for a meeting or to hit the West End on a weekend, fast and frequent trains will whisk you from South Croydon in Zone 5 to London Bridge in under half an hour.

This is a beautiful, grown-up family home that’s been meticulously maintained and will be perfect for a large family looking for a spacious and versatile home.
