Manchester Durman is delighted to present to the market this chain free 3 double bedroom detached property in the heart of Sanderstead. Built in the 1950s and situated on a tree lined and popular residential road this property has been enjoyed by the vendor's family since 1964. There is a no right-hand turn at the top of the road much reducing its use as a cut through in recent times. Its elevated position in Church Way means that the views across to London and beyond are spectacular and include the London Eye and Canary Wharf. The house comes with many original features including parquet flooring downstairs, a tiled fireplace, and even a larder in the kitchen. There is the option to make a 4th bedroom by making the 1st floor cupboard and part of bedroom 2 into a single bedroom or alternatively going into the loft space, subject to the usual consents. A new combi boiler and central heating has been fitted this Spring with the double glazing 12 years ago and the rewiring and guttering in 2007. The pretty rear garden is South East facing and with the sun arriving in the morning attracts a lot of wildlife including woodpeckers, and backs on to the Sanderstead Plantation. There is a public footpath a few doors away that leads into the Sanderstead Plantation. The smell in summer of the flowering honeysuckle is sensational outside the open French doors of the dining room and patio area.
This property is happily positioned within 4 minutes walk of Sanderstead Village and its shops. Sanderstead Village has a lot of history, old and modern, from its Domesday book entry and 12th Century Church, to its village school which has expanded since it was founded in 1875 but keeping its iconic facade. Parents will not have far to take their children to school and for busy parents Sanderstead's Waitrose is walking distance away. Calories can be burnt off playing bowls next to Sanderstead's main recreation ground 50 yards away or its cricket and hockey club next door. There is a vibrant local community and a variety of activities to take part in at the Church Hall, a short walk away.
Many still regard Sanderstead as Surrey as the famous old sign next to Sanderstead roundabout attests, pictured here. The location qualifies for the freedom pass for London bus and train travel. The nearby 403 bus takes about 7 minutes to reach Sanderstead station then on to London Victoria or London Bridge in about 25 minutes without needing to change via central Croydon. Warlingham with its popular old pubs, restaurants, Sainsbury's superstore, countryside, and secondary school is about 12 minutes by bus. Westerham village and Chartwell are only a 20 minute drive south of Warlingham. Riddlesdown collegiate is currently Ofsted outstanding and is within walking distance too of this chain free property. For dog walkers, the local "Gruffy" is popular and a 3 minute walk away (pictured here).
