Property description

This rarely available and chain free 3 bedroom semi-detached property is located close to Sanderstead village and is ideally suited for a young family with popular schools and open spaces all within easy walking distance. The front bedrooms enjoy far reaching views towards Heathrow and the hills north-west of London. The garden is relatively large by modern standards with much potential. The third bedroom is larger than most compared to other similar 3 bedroom designs built by the same builder Montague Thomas in the 1930s. There is a convenient larder in the kitchen. It comes with a garage and off street parking and retains some lovely original period features.


This property is within easy walking distance of Purley Oaks/ Sanderstead stations or a short bus ride from the road outside taking you closer to those stations with frequent services to London Bridge and Victoria in 25-30 minutes or less for East Croydon with transfers to London Gatwick and the coast. Sanderstead is renowned for its open spaces and community spirit and there are lots of clubs and groups within walking distance, such as the Scouts and Girl Guides, Wettern Tree gardens and the Sanderstead library. The village itself is just a short walk where there are traditional high street shops, a village hall, parks, children's play area, the ancient Kings Wood with its bluebells, and popular highly rated primary schools and a Waitrose. 7 minutes further on by bus takes you to another old English village, Warlingham, with its own restaurants and pubs, right on the border with open country. Purley Beeches which is perfect for dog walkers is close and within view of the house with its tennis courts, and allotment and seating areas. For golfers there are several clubs to choose from the nearest being Purley Downs Golf Club which is within a very short walking distance.
