Tucked away but within walking distance of Kenley Common and station, this popular residential road provides both a tranquil setting and a convenient location.
To the rear is a green outlook across the valley and nearby Kenley Common offers recreational possibilities and countryside walks. Just 0.4 miles and a pleasant walk are local shops and Kenley Station (Zone 6) with direct rail services to London Victoria (41 mins) and London Bridge (32 mins). Purley is 1.3 miles with fast services to London Bridge (22 mins), Victoria (28 mins) and Gatwick Airport (27 mins). Purley has extensive shopping including a supermarket and superstore shopping on the Purley Way. There are local schools and a good choice of sporting facilities nearby. The M25 (JCT 6) is 6 miles with access to Gatwick and Heathrow airports.
The property is set back from Hermitage Road behind a screening of trees and a steep border with steps leading down to a hardstanding driveway with access via a private road. There is space for a number of cars in front of a large garage with electric door. A side gate leads to the rear garden which is a highlight being a particularly good size and enjoying a high degree of privacy afforded by mature trees and hedgerow. The patio adjacent to the house is ideal for relaxing in the summer months and enjoys the long vistas down the garden and is laid to Indian sandstone. A second elevated decking terrace provides a wonderful space to enjoy summer evenings.
