Description

A great 3 bedroom family home is now available on the desirable Selsdon Vale Estate with magnificent views across to the National Trust Selsdon Wood Nature Reserve (ideal for dog walking) and beyond. Built in 1974 by Wimpey this property boasts one of the largest plots on the Estate according to the seller and has been enjoyed by the vendors for the past 12 years. All the roads on the Estate are named after birds (Nightingale, Redwing, Lapwing, Sandpiper, Bullfinch, Goldfinch to name a few) as the National Trust's Bird Sanctuary in Selsdon is a few minutes walk away.
