Built in 2000 by Cala Homes, Lismore on the prestigious Densham Drive enjoys a substantial plot on in this private residential road. Within close proximity to the amenities of Purley is this grand 5 bedroom detached property with accommodation over three floors. Though the property would benefit from some updating to the existing décor, it is decorated in a mostly neutral style throughout, allowing the new owner to put their own stamp on the interior.
Being over 4,500 square feet Lismore benefits from spacious and well proportioned rooms as you would expect in a house of this size, the property has been designed with a flowing layout offering four ground floor reception rooms and a further open space on the second floor ideal for entertaining, conversion to a media room or use as a children’s playroom.
Entered via a double height entrance hall with galleried landing and a delightful wooden staircase, the ground floor accommodation extends to a very spacious and light 33ft drawing room with fireplace, an orangery overlooking the garden, an 18ft dining room and a 19ft family room/study. In addition there is a kitchen/breakfast room (which could easily be opened up into the dining room to create a fantastic open plan kitchen/family room) which is fitted with an array of wall and base units complemented by granite worktops. Leading on from this is a separate utility room providing additional storage.
On the first floor there are five good size double bedrooms leading off the spacious galleried landing. The master bedroom is of particular note, with two sets of double patio doors opening to a balcony, extensive built in storage and an en suite bathroom with both walk in glass shower and bath. In addition there are two en suite guest bedrooms (one with shower, another with bath and shower) and two further double bedrooms having use of a family bathroom with bath and shower. The second floor space of approx. 31ft was previously used as a billiard room and has access to the eaves, but in our opinion would make a brilliant media or games room.
Densham Drive enjoys a leafy setting on a desirable, private gated residential estate close to the amenities of Purley, with high street shopping available locally and superstores on the Purley Way.
There is easy access to a number of local schools including Ridgeway, Purley C of E, Riddlesdown, Cumnor House and Whitgift.
Leisure and sports clubs are well catered for at Purley Bury Tennis and Purley Downs Golf Club.
Fast access to the M25 is possible at junction 6 via the nearby A22.
TRAIN SERVICES: Purley Station is 1.1 miles with fast services to London Bridge (22 mins), Victoria (28 mins) and Gatwick Airport (27 mins) and also Sanderstead Station (2.7 miles) and Purley Oaks (2.3 miles).
The property benefits from its own automatic electric gates, providing additional security.
The front gates open to a good size brick paved driveway shielded by a brick wall and hedges where there is ample parking for several cars in addition to a double integrated garage.
Landscaped trees and shrubs lead all the way around the property to the rear where there is a substantial garden laid to lawn and secluded from view by a number of tall trees and enclosed on three sides by wooden panel fencing.
Features of the garden include an ornate fountain, various flowerbeds and borders and an elevated patio spanning the back of the house with steps leading down to the garden.
