This ideal family home has been thoughtfully refurbished with a modern kitchen and a fabulous double reception room. Upstairs are three bedrooms, two doubles and a single, as well as a stylish family bathroom. The house benefits from original wood floors, good storage including a loft which could be converted (STPP), and a private garden.
Pleydell Avenue is located brilliantly close to the green open space of Crystal Palace Park as well as the Station which offers National Rail services to London Victoria and London Bridge in addition to Overground services connecting to east London.
What the owners say:
What do you love most about your home?
Not only is our home light, breezy and cool in the summer but it′s warm and cosy in the winter. And as the house has been around since the 30′s its got character and solid walls. The blossoming hedge to the front and mature garden to the rear along with the local wildlife that they attract, helps give you your own slice of the country in Zone 3!
Our street is safe, well maintained and has a great community spirit. Not only are there many families who have lived here for years but also new faces who have moved here from other parts of the capital/country/world giving it a homely cosmopolitan feel.
We can be in the train station in about 3 minutes or if you forgot to set your alarm you can be on the platform in half that time! London Bridge and Victoria are about 25 mins away and Canada Water is less than 20 mins on the Ginger Line!
Why are you selling?
After more than 10 amazing years in our home, we are sad to leave but some incredible work and family opportunities have come our way and its time for us to move on to pastures new!
What do you love about the area?
Our favourite coffee shop is literally a minute from our doorstep and Crystal Palace Park is just a few moments away which is great for families, dog walkers, a kick about or just to sit and relax. Not only does it have beautiful landscaping, pedalos, and 160-year-old Victorian dinosaurs, it also has a newly opened café/restaurant and community space designed by Chris Dyson Architects. The park also hosts a number of events throughout the year - it has its own music festival in the summer, fireworks in the winter and car and bike racing in the Autumn plus year-round sporting events at the athletics track and Olympic sized swimming pool and sports centre.
The Triangle is a stone′s throw away where you can find most types of cuisine, a number of pubs and bars and a thriving live music and comedy scene plus a cinema where they bring you food and drinks whilst you get to sit on a sofa! On a more practical level, there is a large supermarket, a chemist, dry cleaners, dentists, doctors, hairdressers, great nurseries, boutiques, and furniture shops, not forgetting an array of vintage shops and many other intriguing places to while away a Sunday afternoon. The area is fiercely independent helping to create a distinctive community who over time you will get to know, as this is a place where people come and put down roots.
