  • Bedrooms: 4

A superbly presented and particularly well appointed detached house built in 1928 in the heart of the Whitgift Foundation. This property have been kept in exquisite condition by the 4th owner.

This delightful traditionally built house has an abundance of solid wood oak which was all originally from a boat.

As you enter the impressive oak front door you are welcomed by a grand entrance hall with gorgeous original fireplace and tons of storage space. Off the hallway there is 3 reception rooms which are currently being used as a sitting room, dining room and snug, 2 with further open fireplaces. At the back of the house off the hallway is the modern and bright kitchen/breakfast room, offering ample space for entertaining guests and keen cooks alike, with underfloor heating and French doors leading on to the sunny rear garden. The ground floor of this home also benefits from a downstairs WC.

Upstairs, you have 4 huge double bedrooms, two having ensuite bathrooms and a separate family bathroom. All bedrooms have an abundance of storage and are tastefully decorated. The loft is again a great size and you could possibly convert this in to a further bedroom by adding a spiral staircase subject to usual planning permission.

To compliment this fantastic home is the outside space, which certainly doesn't disappoint. To the front of the property you have an impressive driveway with space for multiple cars as well as a feature water fountain. To the left and rear of the property is a lawned garden which has been well maintained and the perfect spot for summer evenings. There is also a brick built garage for extra security/storage space.

The Whitgift Foundation is a well looked after sought after development, with its fantastic locality to East Croydon station yet being a quiet neighboured. Nearby you have a selection of fantastic schools such as Trinity, Coloma Convent Girls School and Park Hill.
