Manchester Durman is pleased to bring to market this delightful 1971 Lawdon built 3 double bedroom mid terrace house situated in a popular and private courtyard development in Kenley. Bought in 2016 by the present owners the property has been completely refurbished and modernised with a new boiler, new electrics, a new kitchen and bathroom fitted.
It comes with a large and spacious 'L' shaped reception / dining area with a conservatory overlooking the pretty and level rear garden. There are two good sized double bedrooms with a small double bedroom currently used as an office. Situated on a level plot the rear garden is easy to maintain and is west facing. There is a useful private rear gate leading to Hayes Lane. The property comes with a single garage en bloc and there is off street parking garage forecourt.
This property has a long lease (945 years) with a share of the freehold and the management company is run by the residents. The ground maintenance fee includes the grass cutting weekly at the front of the property, the window cleaning (front and back) monthly, and even a Christmas tree is funded each year in the private courtyard to be enjoyed by all the residents. The vendors say it is a friendly neighbourhood with residents ranging from their early 30s to late 80s.
This house is ready to move in to and will especially appeal to young families being close to Hayes Primary School, an excellent local school.
Early viewing is recommended.
This mid terrace house is situated in a popular and private courtyard development in this popular and leafy part of Kenley. Hayes Primary School is within walking distance and has a good OFSTED report. There is also a Harris Primary Academy (Kenley) which has an outstanding OFSTED report. Kenley train station is within walking distance with excellent commuter links into London.
Kenley is historically part of Surrey within a safe neighbourhood and primarily farmland until the arrival of the railway in 1856, the grand Victorian architecture which followed and the Grade II listed All Saints Church (1870). Kenley is a parish in its own right and is close to open green spaces of Kenley Common and Kenley Aerodrome which is ideal for those with young children and dog walkers. Kenley Aerodrome, famous during the Second World War for being a strategic airfield during the Battle of Britain (the most complete surviving one), is now a quiet and relaxing space enjoyed by many, for example, joggers, walkers, children learning to ride their bikes, blackberry pickers, and has an active gliding school run by the Air Training Corps and the Surrey Hills Gliding Club. The Common is a mixture of chalk grassland and ancient woodland set among gently rolling hills. Blessed with fine views across the Caterham valley and the North Downs beyond, visitors find it to hard to believe that the centre of London is only 14 miles to the north and less than 40 minutes by train, without the need to change.
