You Don’t Have To Guess How This Substantial Semi Could Be Turned Into Your Dream Family Home - Just Look At The Plans! A rear extension and a creative rejig upstairs will transform this traditional family home on one of CR2’s most sought after streets.

Sometimes the hardest thing when looking at a ‘project property’ is visualising how it will look after all the work’s been completed.

Thankfully, with this traditional 5 bedroom semi there are detailed plans and 3D visuals that take away all the guesswork. You can see exactly what it could look like... and you can start to think about the many ways it could benefit you and your family.

It’s worth spending a moment to outline the current “before” layout, before getting much more excited about the “after”.

It currently has a traditional downstairs layout with a living room, dining room and a 20’ kitchen.

There’s also a double bedroom with a shower room and 3rd reception room nearby. If you have an older relative living with you or someone who struggles with stairs this could be an ideal home within a home.

Upstairs has four double bedrooms and a spacious four piece family bathroom.

It’s very unlikely you’ll get the keys and just settle for the current condition - it does need work throughout.

So let’s think about how it could be, with a ground floor extension and a reconfiguration of the first floor.

The ground floor would be transformed into a much more sociable space. The star of the show would be an impressive open plan kitchen / diner / family room at the rear - with the must-have bi-fold doors opening to the back garden.

There would be space for two reception rooms, perhaps one for you and one for the kids?. There's also a separate snug/study if you wanted to chill out just away from the hustle and bustle of the kitchen.

And there’s no need to worry if the ground floor bedroom was a key feature. The new layout would still include this, along with a downstairs w/c nearby.

Upstairs would still have four double bedrooms and the family bathroom. Applying a little creativity means the master bedroom could also have an ensuite shower room and walk-in wardrobe.

With a private and leafy 25m back garden there’s no need to worry about losing a couple of meters for the extension.

In addition to the large back garden there’s a small lawn at the front of the property and space for a car on the drive.

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

There’s a choice of independent fee paying schools in Croydon, including the excellent 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 Peter’s Primary School is closest, being only a 6 minute walk away.

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

Hurst View Road is 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. If you prefer smaller independent shops and cafés there’s plenty to keep both browsers and foodies happy in nearby South End.

And if you prefer to get out into the great outdoors (or want to work up an appetite), the beautiful Croham Hurst Woods nature reserve is literally round the corner.

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 around half an hour.

This is a substantial grown-up family home that will be perfect if you’re willing to take on a bit of a project.

You could keep the layout the same and just give it a lick of paint…

But when such thought and creativity has gone into the plans to show you how it could be transformed, don’t you think that would be such a waste?

I’m expecting plenty of interest from families with the vision and budget to make this their dream family home, so call to arrange a viewing.
