Do You Just Give It A Quick Lick Of Paint Or Go All-In To Create Something Truly Special? This charming cottage style semi on a quiet Shirley Hills cul-de-sac has already been extended and improved - but there’s scope to do so much more…

Sandpits Road is a leafy Shirley Hills street with cute bungalow cottages dating back to the 1860’s. This three bedroom semi isn’t quite that old, but the cottage style 1930’s design does give it a certain traditional charm.

Viewed from the front it retains the original exterior but the rear has already been extended on the ground floor, adding extra space for a dining room, utility room and downstairs w/c with shower.

The first floor layout remains unchanged, with two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and the family bathroom.

The rear extension has taken up some of the north-facing back garden but there’s still room for a paved seating area at the back and a decent sized lawn down the side.

And all that space down the side does give you something to think about when thinking about what you’d do after getting hold of the keys…

Chances are you’d want to update the kitchen and bathrooms, as well as freshening up the decoration throughout.

But what if you don’t want to stop there? There’s certainly enough room to build out to the side.

To help you visualise this we’ve produced detailed CGIs showing what could be achieved (subject to planning permission, of course).

As you’ll see from the plans, a two-storey side extension and some creative internal reconfiguration could transform both the ground and first floors.

The ground floor could be opened up, creating a spacious kitchen / dining room / family room that would become the social hub of the home. There would still be room for a utility room and w/c, with a living room / snug at the front for whenever you wanted somewhere quiet to relax.

The first floor could be reconfigured to make use of the extra space, the end result being four double bedrooms (one with an ensuite shower room) and a luxurious family bathroom.

The leafy Shirley Hills location certainly doesn’t need to be improved.

It’s only a short walk through the woods to Shirley High School and the “Outstanding” Coloma Convent Girls' School is only 5 minutes walk away.

There’s no shortage of green space to explore, with Addington Hills, Lloyd Park and Coombe Park all on your doorstep.

It’s around 15 minutes in the car to Croydon Town Centre, where you can also catch the train for the short journey from East Croydon to Victoria.

You won’t need to travel that far for your daily essentials - there’s a great choice of local shops in nearby Addiscombe, where you can also catch the tram.

If you’re looking for a substantial family home on a quiet Shirley Hills street, this three bedroom semi could be perfect.

With a little TLC you could make it your own or you could make the most of the opportunity and extend again to transform it into the home of your dreams.
