Rockbourne Road, Forest Hill

Large and light bay-fronted semi-detached four bedroom house of over 2000 square feet, delivered over four floors, with a south-east facing garden of circa 50 feet (with side-access). A smart paved front drive completes the impressive package. 

The location is a quiet residential no-through street which is just a five minute walk from Forest Hill Station.

Local well-regarded schools include Stillness and Horniman primaries.  

Up your front steps to your front door. Your generous formal through-reception rests to your right, of nearly 26 feet by over 12 feet. Engineered oak graces the floor. Slimline radiators, built-in storage, coving detail and a feature fireplace further impress. 

At the rear of this floor you have bedroom number one (of over 12 feet by over 10 feet); alternatively you can use this room as a home office or additional reception room. 

The lower ground floor hosts a huge extended through-room, incorporating two reception spaces and a central, sizeable and timeless Shaker-style fitted kitchen (note boiling water tap and water softener here). Wall-spanning doors open to your delightful and well-established garden of two tiers with a large shed (with power). 

This floor also has a walk-in pantry, a utility room, a downstairs w.c. (with useful store beyond) and an additional door to outside - fab for bringing in groceries and such. It also benefits from underfloor heating and built-in speakers to the ceiling. 

Take the stairs to the first floor for double bedrooms to front and rear (each is over 12 feet by over 11 feet), and a stylish windowed modern bathroom. 

The second floor is a pleasing master suite - with bedroom, en suite bathroom (with independent shower, Velux windows and under-basin storage), walk-in wardrobe and accessible eaves storage as well. Also worthy of note is air-conditioning (throughout the bedrooms). 

Leafy Forest Hill is a ‘best of both worlds’ location; green and suburban in feel, while being really well-connected. It has a buzzy and friendly town centre, with a large Sainsbury’s store and loads of top independent offerings which include a brilliant free range butcher (The Butchery) and lots of cafes, pubs, restaurants and cute shops. Pantry and St David Coffee Shop (both by the station) are great for coffee. We also like Big Cheeks for authentic Thai food. 

For exercise, choose from multiple gyms and yoga studios, as well as Forest Hill Pools, within easy walking distance.

For more options, local towns include Honor Oak, Dulwich, Sydenham, Brockley and Peckham. 

Green spaces locally include Horniman Gardens (by the museum), Sydenham Hill Woods, One Tree Hill and Mayow Park. Local nature reserves include Dacres Wood and Devonshire Road. 

Forest Hill Station is really close for London-bound trains (go direct to London Bridge in under 20 minutes), and Overgound services to Hoxton, Clapham Junction and Canada Water (for Canary Wharf). There are also plenty of useful bus routes upon the South Circular.
