Ms Jones, Surrey
This was the second property we've sold through Mann and although they were eight years apart, we've walked away with the same positive view.
Situated in arguably one of the most attractive roads in the Thorpe Estate, this beautiful Edwardian house for sale offers 3,236 sq ft of accommodation over four floors. Centrally located in Sydenham enjoying easy access to Sydenham Overground, outstanding schools, Mayow Park and a varied selection of coffee shops and restaurants.
Bishopsthorpe is a fine example of a semi-detached family home built by the renowned Edmonson and Sons between 1901 and 1914 and designated a Conservation area in 2001. Occupying a generous corner plot, that affords much privacy and seclusion, the house has been extensively refurbished by the present owners.
Over recent years this house has been extended to provide excellent family accommodation upgraded for modern family living whilst maintaining its wealth of period features.
An extension to the kitchen has created a large kitchen/diner with bi-fold doors onto the south facing patio and garden - bringing the outside in, the owners managed an engineering feat - there is no corner post to the bi-fold doors giving you uninterrupted views of the patio and garden which has a range of different outdoor lighting, power points and water feature.
The kitchen has top of the range Neff appliance's pack including two slide and hide doors, self-cleaning touch screen ovens, dishwasher that projects the time remaining on the wash cycle onto the floor, boiling hot water tap that also dispenses chilled water, water softener that provides soft water for the whole house - no lime scale or soap scum, under floor heating in kitchen, utility room and downstairs toilet.
The house was completely re-wired, top to bottom and includes "Cat 6" internet cabling on all floors, USB charging points for mobile phone and tablets. Small touches such as master light switches which turn on lamps in the living and dining rooms and motion sensors which automatically switch on lights in the utility room and downstairs WC.
Integrated audio/visual system in the kitchen/diner that includes surround sound system for TV/Radio/DVD/BluRay and streaming. Added bonus is the specially built aquarium support in the kitchen for the featured fish tank that lights up at night.
In addition, the home benefits from: six bedrooms of impressive proportions, three reception rooms, two and half bathrooms, large loft storage, detached garage and garden shed, both with light and power.
This property also has a wealth of period features that have been lovingly cared for, including huge stained glass window on the stairs, there are a further three stained glass windows throughout the property, original fireplaces dotted around the house, including reception three/library and some of the bedrooms, cornicing and wooden fretwork throughout, this has to be seen to be fully appreciated.
