3 Bedroom Detached House, Bishops Walk, Croydon, CR0 5BA

Tenure Type: Freehold

Property Description

In a marvellous position, situated on one of the most sought after private roads in the area, an intriguing detached house specifically designed and constructed in the mid 1980s for the present owner by Australian architect Kevin Dash. Combining a modernist style with Palladian principles, the house has distinctive exteriors of mellow brick and pitched tiled roofs with a central brick chimney and has been maintained very well. Internally the accommodation is arranged over two floors and includes flowing, open plan living spaces. Large picture windows and sliding doors allow for maximum natural light penetration and views over the garden, whilst reception areas each have a triple aspect. The sitting room has a room dividing fireplace with gas fire and the study has an adjoining shower room thereby suitable for use as a fourth bedroom if so desired. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with a range of wall and base units with integrated appliances and opens to the conservatory breakfast room. Bedrooms are laid out over the first floor with all having a dual aspect. The master suite has an en-suite bathroom with separate shower cabinet and fitted wardrobes. A family bathroom serves the remaining bedrooms.

Situation
Bishops Walk is a private road set within the prestigious Shirley Hills, so called because historically bishops took this path from Addington Palace to Croydon, when the palace was occupied by Archbishops of Canterbury. Surrounded by pine woodland, this location is perfectly situated for access to an excellent selection of state and private schools at both primary and secondary levels. Convenient too for commuting and for Gatwick Airport the tram line connects from nearby at Coombe Lane to East Croydon main line rail station, which in turn has fast rail connections in to London Victoria and Gatwick Airport. There are local schools in both the state and private sectors including Whitgift, Trinity, Royal Russell, Coloma, Old Palace and Croydon High.

Outside
The house is approached via a gravelled drive, leading to the detached double garage. The gardens surround the house and are a feature of the property. Mature and well thought out, there are many specimen varieties of trees and shrubs including colourful rhododendrons and azaleas, beech hedging, lawns and terracing.
