Sydenham London, SE26


Built in 1843, this detached Victorian Villa received a two storey extension in 2016 along with a complete interior overhaul.

The decoration has been done to a high standard. The two main receptions rooms to the front of the house have a retained a traditional feel with a modern edge, and the extension to the rear is more experimental and contemporary with a mixture of different colours and textures.

The property has a formal front garden, with box hedging, planting and space for one off road parking; and a large rear garden. The rear garden is composed of mature trees (oak, pear, cherry, coppice) and younger trees, planting, two circular lawns, children’s climbing frame, outdoor office/shed; decking area with canopy and pizza oven; tiled area with seating and decking with sun loungers.

The interior consists of 13 rooms plus two walk-in cupboards arranged over three storey split level. Original pine flooring throughout the downstairs as well as wooden parquet flooring (within the extension) and concrete style tiling in the kitchen diner; staircase and upstairs are carpeted. Architraves, skirting, ceiling roses and coving are in keeping with the date of the house. Radiators are reclaimed cast iron and artwork is hung on many walls.

Just a seven minute walk from both Forest Hill and Sydenham stations.
