Oozing charm and character, is this beautiful Victorian DETACHED cottage, originally built for the station master of Beckenham Junction railway station. This captivating property is ripe for a contemporary makeover to realise its full potential.

For train enthusiasts or those wanting the shortest walk to a station with fast services to London, this is the perfect property, being so closely located near to Beckenham Junction station. A short walk will take you to the centre of the thriving High Street with its popular independent shops and restaurants, not to mention M&S Foodhall and Waitrose, practically on your doorstep!

Accommodation includes a welcoming entrance hall, downstairs cloakroom with wc, a double aspect living room that leads into a spacious kitchen with a walk-in larder and door leading to the garden. Upstairs are three bedrooms in the eaves with a bathroom accessible from the master bedroom.

At the front of the house is a picturesque cottage garden with lawn, shrub and flower borders, a high fence to the front providing privacy and a pathway to the front door with an adjacent picket fence and picket gate. To the side of the property is another generous area of garden lawn and a paved courtyard.

A generous double garage with two sets of wooden double doors, no doubt originally purposed as stables due to the cobbled driveway that extends into the two garage areas, provides secure parking for two cars or could be converted into a further reception room in the main house (subject to the usual planning consents). The driveway provides further off street parking.

Nearest schools include Harris Primary Academy Beckenham Green and St Christopher's The Hall. Popular green spaces nearby include Beckenham Green, Kelsey Park and Beckenham Place Park.
