Property description and location

A characterful and well proportioned pre-war house built by the renowned Costain in the 1930s, this 3 bedroom semi boasts many original features including tiled fireplaces and mantels, bay windows, high ceilings and original doors and handles. The vendor has happily lived here for 32 years and is only it's third owner. This property will appeal to families with its generous sized rooms with separate dining room and a reception room that looks across a level and mature rear garden. It comes with a garage and off street parking. Early viewing is recommended.

It benefits from being close to local facilities (a GP surgery is closeby and a varied traditional shopping high street with a Sainbury's and modern library), schools (Selsdon Primary and Croydon High GDST) are within walking distance, village life and open space for recreation and relaxation: the National Trust Selsdon bird santuary is nearby, Littleheath Woods and the ancient Croham Hurst with its bronze age monument. The famous Selsdon Park Hotel (De Vere) (former home ot the Bishops of Rochester) is a short walk away with its bar and restaurant, golf and training facilities. This house has the added advantage of genuinely easy access to the City on train and bus via East Croydon (there is a bus stop a few yards away with a 5 minutes bus journey to South Croydon BR and from there just 20 minutes to central London, as quick as reaching the City from SW London) and its East Croydon's varied connections to London, Gatwick and beyond and tram to Wimbledon.
