Full Details for 2 Bedroom Bungalow for sale in Croydon, CR0 :

This superbly presented, 2 double bedroom bungalow has been recently refurbished to a high standard and is available to the market with no onward chain.
Set in a quiet, residential cul-de-sac, the property was originally built in the 1920’s before being extended and converted in 2008 to add a large annexe apartment, with further redevelopment taking place in 2016 to form 2 separate properties. Either property can be bought individually or, alternatively, the vendor will consider offers for both properties, as both are, of course, owned by the same vendor.
This property is the larger of the 2 and allows an extremely flexible home, depending on your needs. There are 2 double bedrooms, one of which contains an en-suite bathroom which can also be accessed from the hallway if required. The bathroom contains underfloor heating, a wash basin, WC and shower cubicle as well as space and plumbing for a bidet or full bath as an additional option if preferred.
Leading off the hallway, a modern kitchen with a full range of appliances is conveniently located before a bright and spacious living room, which in turn opens out onto the terrace and lawn via 2 separate sets of French doors.
As a bonus, concealed behind a hallway door, is a full-width staircase leading to a large and flexible loft space. With full head height, lighting and mains power, a blank canvas for a multitude of possibilities awaits - depending on your needs.
To fully appreciate the flexibility this property has to offer, an internal viewing is highly recommended.
What our vendor says…….
“My brother and I were born and brought up in the house next door and my mother continued to live there until her late eighties when she could no longer manage the stairs. At that point we bought this house for her, and sold the house next door. We wanted my mother to live out her days in the road she loved, amongst the neighbours she had known so long.
The project to develop these properties originally grew from our wish to provide an ideal living environment for our mother in the final years of her life, anticipating her diminishing mobility. It was, therefore, very much a labour of love. There was never any question that we would maintain a high standard in our approach. My own professional interest in social housing also meant that I wished to develop both properties to the design criteria of the ‘Lifetime Homes Standard’ ( ), which seeks to ‘provide, either from the outset or through simple and cost-effective adaptation, design solutions that meet the existing and changing needs of diverse households’. I’m sure this house will provide the benefits and flexibility that served our family so well.”
