For Sale £415,000 - Terraced House
Set within the Shooters Hill Slopes this house is a fine example of a 1930’s Wimpey built house. On approach, you spot the extensive raised wooden decking veranda built to maximise the afternoon sun. The house is reached by shallow steps from the street, built from railway sleepers and decking. There are several lights fitted which makes it an especially attractive feature at night. There is a deep flower bed at street level and either side of the steps containing various flowering plants and shrubbery. As you enter the front door into the hallway which leads into the open plan area which occupies the entire wood-laminated ground floor. The kitchen is a half single-storey extension to the back of the house.
Follow the stairs upstairs where you find two double bedrooms and one single bedroom as well as a bathroom including wc, basin, bidet and bath including an over-bath shower, with two mottled glass windows to the rear.
The back bedroom is fitted with sliding mirror-door wardrobes across the length of one side, as well as a further original cupboard which used to house the hot water tank, all floor to ceiling. There is a bay window overlooking the garden.
The front double bedroom has an original small cupboard to one corner from floor to ceiling and a bay window to the front incorporating uninterrupted views across London including Canary Wharf, the River Thames and London City Airport.
The third single bedroom has a window to the front, with similar views.
Outside at the back, there is a garden mostly laid to lawn flanked by flower beds. At the bottom of the garden is a purpose-built half-tiled hot-tub room with electric shower, toilet and kitchen sink and cupboards underneath. To the right of this, a generous side gate leads into the back-access road which is lined with garages and other outbuildings of the properties along Donaldson Road and Ankerdine Crescent. These roads can be accessed as 3 separate points and can accommodate cars and large vans.
The roof has 13 solar panels in place which generate electricity.
The local area boasts many features including one of Greenwich’s best primary schools, Christ Church. As well as this there is a castle, a historic golf course, a tennis club, a bowls club, two pubs and a community shop and an 89-acre city farm all within 15 minute’s walk. As well as this there are two parks, Shrewsbury and Foxcroft. You would be hard pushed to find a location in London with so much greenery around and nearly all of it is protected. The area has the second-lowest crime rate in the borough of Greenwich and is largely home to young families and the elderly. It is an incredibly quiet neighbourhood.
