Description

This much-loved house has been owned by the current family for over 50 years. It is unusual in that the 3rd bedroom could fit a small double bed and it has a driveway for two cars. The children remember happy times playing in the nearby Kings Wood where there are over 140 acres of ancient woodland and an excellent place to burn off excess energy and build up an appetite for tea time! On the other side of Kings Wood is Selsdon village famous for its Hotel & Golf Club (former home of the Bishops of Rochester) and a National Trust-owned bird sanctuary.

Property description and location

This much-loved house has been owned by the current family for over 50 years. It is unusual in that the 3rd bedroom could fit a small double bed and it has a driveway for two cars. The children remember happy times playing in the nearby Kings Wood where there are over 140 acres of ancient woodland and an excellent place to burn off excess energy and build up an appetite for tea time! On the other side of Kings Wood is Selsdon village famous for its Hotel & Golf Club (former home of the Bishops of Rochester) and a National Trust-owned bird sanctuary.

The house is within Hamsey Green, a self-contained village half-way between the villages of Sanderstead and Warlingham all served by fast rail connections to central London - the most accessible station is Sanderstead, reached either by car (7 mins) or by catching the 403 bus (virtually door to door). From Sanderstead, Victoria and London Bridge are 20 and 25 mins away respectively (with no change of train). The M25, junction 6, is 15 mins away and, from there, Gatwick Airport is another 20 mins away.

Riddlesdown station is fractionally closer by car. Riddlesdown Common is popular with joggers, picnickers, and dog walkers. At the upper end of Riddlesdown Road is Riddlesdown Collegiate secondary school and sixth form college, rated "outstanding" by Ofsted.

Hamsey Green is on level ground with a choice of shops (including a Co-Op) and restaurants a short stroll from the house. Schools are sought-after (two primary, one with an "outstanding" Ofsted rating, are within half a mile; the Warlingham secondary and sixth-form college is half a mile away. The Hamsey Green area is well served for sport and leisure, with an equestrian centre, rugby club, cricket club, football club, squash and racket ball club, and an athletics club. Nearby Warlingham is an older village with historic public
houses, restaurants, and shops (including Sainsburys).
