Medusa Road, Catford
Victorian bay-fronted four bed (three doubles, one single), two bath beauty between Ladywell and Catford stations - 12 minutes by foot to each - on the Lewisham/Catford border, really close to lovely Ladywell Fields. Freehold.
This handsome home has been carefully owned and improved, and there’s also potential to ‘push up’ into the loft space (or indeed into the side return as seems to be the fashion) if you wanted more than the 1401 square feet already on offer; which includes the cellar space.
From the smart part-glazed front door swing a left into the front reception room. Here you’ve got bespoke shutters to the big bay window, coving and dado rails plus ceiling rose, stripped and painted floorboards, and an on-trend wood-burning stove. Double doors divide you from or connect you to the second reception - a natural formal dining space, with French doors to the decked side-return.
At the rear of the house you’ll find the herringbone-floored, big, double-aspect kitchen/dining room which stretches over 23 feet. Navy-painted wooden units look just great and are paired with solid wood counters. French doors open at the foot of the room to the garden. The part-walled garden is paved and decked and you’ve also got established planting including mature palm trees.
Upstairs and from the half-landing you’ve got first a windowed shower room to your left. Beyond this is the only single bedroom, then the first of three double bedrooms (this one has garden views). From the landing proper you’ve got a good double to your right, then the master bedroom onto the street with a bay window and en suite shower room, plus built-in wardrobes and bespoke shutters top all the windows.
Ladywell Fields is a surprisingly-sprawling green space which hugs the Ravensbourne River. It’s teeming with wildlife and has a sweet cafe plus tennis courts and athletics track. Holbeach Primary is close and very well regarded.
Choose from Lewisham or Catford centres for high street stuff and markets. Both town centres are fast-gentrifying - we love Sparrow in Lewisham, and Catford’s pizzeria, plus Japanese and Turkish restaurant offerings.
