George Lane, Hither Green
Extended and exquisitely-renovated Victorian four bedroom terraced home boasting incredible interior-design and finishing. Over two bountiful floors, the house measures in at 1636 square feet - and there’s obvious loft conversion potential too - should you require even more volume or wish for a future project.
The handsome house is accompanied by a mature-tree-framed sunny south-facing garden of circa 90 feet; with glorious direct access from the huge multi-purpose rear room (it’s hard to see how you could leave this space - it does everything! Roomy kitchen/dining room/generous living room. There’s also a guest w.c. at the near end of the room).
Find the property on a long residential street of Victorian terraces, between Ladywell (14 minutes by foot) and Hither Green (12 minutes) stations. Both are Fare Zone 3, with frequent London Bridge and Charing Cross services. Permit-parking is available on the street for residents.
Green spaces are pleasingly-plentiful round this way: Mountsfield and Lewisham Parks being your closest, then you’ve got delightful Ladywell Fields and beyond that - Hilly Fields, toward Brockley.
Open a smart front door and from the high-ceilinged wide hall, a large through-reception stretching over 24 feet rests to your left; with framed glazed oversized double doors providing a most impressive arrival. The second reception area has lovely built-in alcove bespoke shelving (complete with inset lighting) for your best bits.
The front reception has a large bay window and a working fire with basket and delightful marble surround. There are in ceiling-speakers downstairs.
The rear extension is masterful; delivering a slick fitted kitchen of timeless-style, with island, Miele dishwasher, roof lights, stone counters, and generous dining and lounge areas too. A modern gas fire and warehouse-style double-doors and windows are winning features at foot of the room.
Open out to the paved area of the garden. Beyond this are two large planters plus well-stocked borders and a healthy lawn, plus a new-for-2020 party/entertaining deck, lounge and BBQ space with pergola. The garden has power, and the sellers have installed lovely lighting from start to foot. There's also a shed and vegetable plot at the end of the garden.
Up to the first floor - beginning at the rear of the building - you have a double bedroom of over 11 feet by 11 feet, with big bay window and built-in alcove closet. Another bedroom’s next door; this time over 8 feet by nearly 8. This room’s currently enjoyed as a generous dressing room.
Adjacent is the magazine-worthy bathroom with stylish floor tiles, free-standing modern bath, large independent walk-in shower, and twin sinks atop smart storage.
A dishy deep green bedroom is the next event - at over 10 feet each way with sash windows to verdant vistas.
The master bedroom completes the tour - it’s over 16 feet by 13, with a bay window and additional sash. Like the other bedrooms, it has pale carpeting to the floor.
You’ve got two town centres - both with a friendly village-feel - within easy walking distance of your new house: Ladywell and Hither Green. In Ladywell we like The Larder deli, Mamma Dough for pizza, and Meat Jon (a great butcher shop).
In Hither Green you have a handy Co-Op, and Good Hope cafe (a big hit with homemade food and great coffee), also Mission Green Organic Food shop, and popular authentic Italian pizzas at The Gold of Naples. Cafe Green (on Ennersdale Road) for authentic Vietnamese food is also popular. Walk to these in 10 minutes. The Station Hotel is a strong local public house (you can guess where to find it!).
For high street shopping and daily markets, Lewisham’s only a little further. You can also pick up DLR trains at Lewisham Station for Canary Wharf and Bank.
If you have little ones or they are on the horizon, Brindishe Manor School (Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’) is a popular choice.
We’ve mentioned all the most local green spaces; Greenwich Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site and Blackheath Common are also close for more options (walk/cycle/train/bus).
