Property Description

Stunning 'Arts & Crafts' style 4 bedroom ‘Christmas’ built family home with its stunning features throughout indicative of the architecture of the era. Gaynesford Road is part of the Perry Vale and Christmas Estate Conservation Area in the heart of Forest Hill. These houses are the work of a local builder and decorator, Edward Christmas, who was synonymous with the area and built his family homes from around 1901 to the 1930’s. His buildings have a reputation for quality and period detail, both inside and out.

This property has iconic kerb appeal with its original red brick, roughcast render design to the front elevation and double-storey bay windows with split-pane glass. The front path leads up to the original wood and stained-glass front door. Being a semi-detached property, there is space to the side and a gated pathway to the garden.

Internally, the property has wide split-level hallways and landings providing light and space throughout. The ground floor features a welcoming entrance hall with stairs leading up to the first floor, a spacious reception room to the front and a further double reception at the rear which leads through french bay doors to the secluded south-west facing garden. There is also a kitchen breakfast room with separate utility room and WC. The ground floor retains many of the original features that make these houses so popular, with the cornicing, picture and dado rails, cast iron fireplaces and over-mantles in most of the rooms, as well as the stained glass and intricate carved wooden detailing that make these properties so special.

Upstairs the rear bedroom is an idyllic space to work as it overlooks the flora and fauna of the Conservation Area. Two other bedrooms have stunning fireplaces and features (1 with ensuite) with a smaller 4th bedroom and a modern bathroom too.

Must be viewed, highly recommended.
