Entry is on the ground floor through an original fluted glass front door, into an expansive, newly fitted kitchen with maple flooring.

Stairs to the upper levels retain their original hardwood balustrades. On the first floor, a translucent fluted panel amplifies the sense of space, pouring light in from a former reception room that has been adapted for use as a textile studio. On the same level is large bedroom and bathroom.
On the second floor is a master bedroom with panoramic views of London’s skyline, a rear-facing bedroom, overlooking the garden and a shower room with a walk-in shower. The property has plenty of storage throughout, including an attic, separate garage, and a bike storage unit.
Forest Hill has become an extremely popular area of south-east London with the help of the London Overground extension. As a result, there are plenty of very good independent cafes, restaurants and pubs in the area. The Horniman Museum and Gardens is a popular destination for young families, with a child-friendly café, anthropological museum and farmers’ market every Saturday morning.
There are a number of ‘outstanding’ primary schools in the Forest Hill area, including Fairlawn Primary and Eliot Bank Primary.
The nearest station is Forest Hill, running London Overground services to Highbury & Islington via Shoreditch High Street and Canada Water (for connections to the Jubilee Line). Southern Trains runs direct services to London Bridge with a journey time of around 20 minutes.
