A rare opportunity to purchase a substantial and attractive five bedroom family home of about 3.5 acres, set in stunning grounds, offering an exciting opportunity for updating and modernising that would enable a purchaser to refurbish to their own taste and requirements.
The substantial ground floor benefits from five reception rooms, all with generous proportions, offering flexible family accommodation. From the covered porch you enter into the entrance hall with wooden flooring and stairs leading up to the first floor. At the heart of the home is the country style kitchen/dining room enjoying a rear aspect and offering open plan living. The kitchen offers a good range of cream country style wall and base units and includes a gas hob and electric oven and allows access to the utility and cloak room. The dining area, with ample space for a table and chairs, offers access to the conservatory and has a period feature fireplace. The extremely light and airy conservatory benefits from picture windows that wrap around the rear and side of the house, allowing sweeping views over the gardens. A generous sitting room, family room with bay picture window overlooking the front garden and study complete the downstairs accommodation.
On the first floor are 5 bedrooms, including a triple aspect master bedroom with an ensuite shower room, the guest bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, and a family bathroom with separate shower cubicle.
The property is well placed for Farleigh Golf Course and Croydon town centre that has large commercial and shopping centres.
