Property Summary

***Vendor's comments:*** "When we first entered the house, we were immediately impressed by the tall ceilings and how bright the rooms were, especially the living room with its large front-facing window. I am going to miss our home so much, but especially the garden and easy links to London."

***Vendor's comments:*** "When we first entered the house, we were immediately impressed by the tall ceilings and how bright the rooms were, especially the living room with its large front-facing window. The size of the house also took us by surprise—it is so much bigger than what you would imagine. But what really sealed the deal was the private garden. As soon as we stepped out and saw the space, we fell in love. It was very overgrown back then, and we have since tamed the jungle and added decking at the back. It is the perfect place for BBQs or just to relax when the weather is nice.


We've lived at the house for nearly 6 years and would have loved to have stayed a lot longer if circumstances were different. Although it hasn't worked out for us, I know that it will make a wonderful home for someone and/or their family. Sadly, we are separating. If we weren't, we wouldn't sell this house, as it has so much space and potential, and we also love the area, as well as its ease of getting to work and travel into central London. While living at the property, we have worked hard to make it our home, giving it our own touches and adding a new bathroom, kitchen, boiler, and decking in the garden. It is in the perfect place to move straight in and enjoy, giving the new owner time to decide how they want to make it their own.


We always toyed with the idea of extending the property further, as there is ample garden space to extend into and not compromise the garden space. In hindsight, we regret not extending.


While we never had children (unless you count the cat!), we did always think that Oakfield Road was the perfect place to raise or start a family, as there is a nursery a few doors down, a park a short walk away, and a secondary school one road over. There is also so much space in the house or garden for children to be able to run around and play. As I have type 1 diabetes, being close to the hospital, pharmacy, and GP surgery has been hugely beneficial. It is also a short walk to Sainsbury's and Lidl, and there are multiple gyms to choose from within a short walking distance. We have spent many fun evenings at East Croydon's Boxpark, enjoying the range of food and great activities on offer. There are also so many shops in the town centre, along with restaurants and bars. I especially love going to Wandle Park for a run or walk. Within a short bus journey away is Streatham Leisure Centre, where I enjoyed taking ice skating lessons as a new hobby. Oakfield Road is the perfect place to get into London, with fast train links to London Bridge, Victoria, Clapham Junction, and Balham (Northern Line) from both West and East Croydon. There is also a line to Highbury and Islington at West Croydon and so many options from East Croydon, including lines to Brighton and Southampton.


I am going to miss our home so much, but especially the garden and easy links to London. I will miss filling vases with homegrown flowers throughout the year, from the multiple rose buses to the Dahlias that I planted that are still flowering in October. It is a home that feels safe, private, and secluded, which is such a special thing for a property in London."
