We are excited to a present a truly charming three-bedroom mid terraced house located on the desirable location of Gloucester Road, Croydon has available to buy through Black + Blanc. This wonderful family home has been presented absolutely immaculately and oozes commitment to the highest level to restore charm, history and has true charisma, truly one of a kind in our opinion. The vendors have truly cherished, cared and continually improved the property and this really shows, from a bespoke hand-made kitchen to restored floorboards throughout the property really adding to the allure of the house.
If you lived here.
You would be purchasing a property with plenty of curb appeal and punch for all the right reasons. The property has a good size front garden which can be easily converted to provide off street parking, obtaining the relevant permissions from the local council. The vendors have also integrated a type 2 electric vehicle charger at the front of the property for ease of charging your eco vehicle. As you enter the property you are welcomed by an open hallway with ample under stairs storage, including space for a standing fridge / freezer.
The living room has been tastefully presented with warm décor and is further complimented by large windows that make it light and airy. The room is of a good size measuring 14’11 x 10’1. The ceiling is new and has been sound proofed and insulated as part of the refurbishment when the vendors purchased the property. It also features floorboards that have been refurbished and draft proofed and a fireplace that could easily be opened for a wood burner.
You shall be drawn to the kitchen/dining area - clearly the hub of the home. This space is a true representation of uniqueness with an eye to retaining period features, which was integral to the current vendors process and wow does it make an impact. The area measures at 15’7 x 11’11, the current occupiers knocked through the kitchen to provide open plan living which really works. They integrated a hand-made kitchen with all standard unit sizes but there’s some history here with science lab worktops and sink from a local school. The kitchen is plumbed for a washing machine and dishwasher. Exposed floorboards are complimented by a fireplace as in the living room with the original back boiler as a feature which is of course not in use but highlights the history of the house.
The ground floor is completed by the garden room which has been rebuilt and refurbished. It is constructed of Douglas Fir, naturally treated and framing large double glazed windows creating a light and airy room. The room has been plumbed for a washing machine, making it a very useful extension of the property and wonderful spot to enjoy the garden all year round.
As you head upstairs to the property, you shall not be disappointed because you are presented to three distinctive bedrooms with individual character. All rooms have high ceilings and provide plenty of space which is what you shall find in houses built in this era compared to newer builds. Bedrooms One & Two are both generous size double bedrooms with ample built in storage.
Bedroom One (12’0 x 9’1) has views of the garden and attracts sunlight and is further benefited from large double-glazed windows and integrated with built in storage.
Bedroom Two (12’0 x 9’5) like the majority of the house, as been re-plastered and has large windows to provide plenty of light.
The first floor is completed with Bedroom Three which can be used as a bedroom/study/office, dependant on your preference, in addition to an immaculately presented family bathroom. There is potential we believe to extend into the loft that measures well for a loft conversion that could provide you with a bedroom and ensuite subject to obtaining the relevant planning permissions. The loft is insulated with folding stairs from the hatch and is also boarded.
What we must not forget is the garden of the house, which is of a good size and measures of a maintainable size of 36’1 x 17’8, which also has a shed/outbuilding of a generous size.
What’s the location like?
Ideally located for commuters being just 0.6 miles approximately of East Croydon's mainline station offering links into London Bridge and Victoria Stations in circa 16 minutes as well as the express service to Gatwick Airport.
