Property Summary

A well regarded and chain free Wimpey built house that is extra sought after on this site as it has three double bedrooms plus a fourth single, and an original downstairs wc just off the hall. Both the kitchen and lounge diner have doors leading to a wide patio area with the pretty backdrop of woodland and a grass bank with borders and enough space to add a conservatory based on other similar designs either side. There is an unusually large storage cupboard off the entrance hall and another off the landing, and the bathroom is wide enough to fit a shower bath or to be joined to the large landing cupboard which some have already made into a shower cubicle. Benefits from double glazing throughout and gas fired central heating. Set on a quiet no through road save for a public footpath at its far end, it has been further improved with an extended kitchen which abuts a large front to back lounge diner offering potential to join the two subject to local consents.

Property Location

One of the last and largest of the well regarded Wimpey Homes to be built on the tranquil Selsdon Vale development with magnificent uninterrupted views over the National Trust owned 200 acre Selsdon Wood Nature Reserve within the London LOOP but within just 40-45 minutes' commuting time of the City. Sir Julian Huxley, a scientist, who promoted the Reserve, has a local inn named after him in the centre of Selsdon village. A public footpath leads from Osprey Gardens via Mallard Road to Greville Avenue (which leads to Selsdon recreation ground with its carpark and playground, pictured below) and on to the Addington Road close to the Selsdon parade of shops (pictured), Selsdon Primary (pictured), Quest Academy, GDST Croydon High and village life. The tram stop to East Croydon is a short walk from Addington Road or the 433 bus on Sorrel Bank runs to the Addington village tram stop (close to Addington Palace and Golf Course). From East Croydon central London is only about 15 minutes and the Gravel Hill tram stop is about 12 minutes from East Croydon station. The popular Greenvale Primary is the closest school, and the GDST Croydon High is walking distance and adjoins a Sainsbury's and the historic Selsdon Park Hotel and Golf course, once home to the Bishops of Rochester. A short car or bus journey away is open country and the Farleigh Golf Club and popular gastro inn, The Harrow.
