Fox Hill, Crystal Palace

Characterful and sensitively-refurbished five bedroom red-brick Victorian house of over 2,500 square feet, within Church Road Conservation Area. 

With period features galore, the handsome home is delivered over four original floors with two entrances, and further boasts a big and beautiful well-established south-facing garden which extends over 90 feet. 

Walk just eight minutes for Crystal Palace Station (for regular and Overground rail services) and Crystal Palace Park. 'The Triangle' - for a multitude of independent shops, cafes and eateries - is even closer. Unrestricted parking is available on-street.

This is a particularly leafy residential location, with lots of public green spaces locally, including Fox Hill Playing Field just over the street, Stambourne Woods (a community run woodland) behind the house, and with loads of mature trees to feast your eyes upon. 

A deep front garden fronts the house. Entering at upper ground level, you arrive in a pleasing high-ceilinged hall, with painted boards to the floor and a grand stairwell running up ahead.

Your formal reception rooms are set to your right. The front reception is over 16 feet by over 15 feet. The rear one is over 15 feet by over 12 feet. Both rooms have period fireplaces, picture rail, ceiling rose and coving detail. A balcony onto garden views is utterly delightful (we love the shutters here as well). 

At the rear of this floor is a glorious sunny study/hobby/music room (of over 9 feet by over 8 feet), with a large sash window to green vistas. 

Downstairs, you’ve got a second front door (brilliant for casual use - bringing in groceries etc.), then a large eat-in kitchen to the front of the house, and a third reception room onto the garden. This can be used for ‘garden room’ seating, or for formal dining. A very flexible house! Access the garden from this reception (white-painted timber-framed French doors here) or via the handy utility room, with handy guest w.c., which completes the floor. 

Up to the first floor and you’ll first find the main sash-windowed bathroom. This is a good size, with both bath and independent walk-in shower. Neat, white and modern fixtures and fittings feature. 

From the main landing you have a large double bedroom to your left - of over 15 feet by over 12 feet. Adjacent is another similarly-sized double (over 14 feet by over 12 feet), with a charming and generous en suite bathroom - with traditional-style sanitary ware and T&G detail. A beautiful fireplace graces each of these bedrooms, and coving and ceiling roses impress too. 

The second floor hosts three further bedrooms. The front two have classy casement windows. The rear bedroom has a sash and additional Velux. There is also a huge easily-accessible storage area on your way up to this floor. 

Crystal Palace has so much going for it and seems to just keep giving. Long-standing independent shops include Bookseller Crow. The Everyman Cinema is a brilliant local one, and lovely and lively pubs locally include The Alma and The White Hart (book ahead for your Sunday roasts!). Restaurants? We particularly rate Kish Mish, Numidie, Edo and Tamnag Thai to name but a few.

There are two regular Farmers Markets (one in the park and on Haynes Lane). A big Sainsbury’s on Westow Street easily settles the supermarket stuff, and for treats, check out Blackbird Bakery, Four Boroughs, and The Vaults Collective (the latter for plants, cake and coffee!). 

It’s a brief walk to Anerley - Chatsworth Bakehouse and the Douglas Fir (a super cool artisan brewery bar) are popular, among other delights. 

The National Sports Centre within Crystal Palace Park is listed, and home to an Olympic sized pool and strong gym and sporting facilities. The park itself is home to dinosaurs, a lake, a farm and even a maze!

Local primary schools include Cypress (Ofsted-rated 'Good'), Rockmount ('Outstanding') and All Saints ('Good') primaries. Harris City Academy ('Outstanding') is local for secondary phase. The independent schools in Dulwich and Sydenham are a short drive away.
