There is also a study and downstairs cloakroom.  Stairs to the rear of the kitchen lead down to a double integral garage which, subject to planning permission and building regulations, could be converted to provide additional accommodation.

The feature double width staircase leads to the first floor landing with a large master bedroom which is to the rear aspect and includes a Juliet-style balcony, walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom.  The guest bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and en suite shower room.  There are three further double bedrooms and a large family bathroom with separate shower and bath.

Stairs lead to a second floor 'loft room' which is currently used as a games room/gym and has two Velux-style windows and access to plenty of eaves storage space.

The garden to the rear is very impressive.  There is a large patio area with Koi fish pond and steps leading to two further patio areas which are ideal for summer outdoor entertaining. Steps lead to the main lawn area which is level, mature and secluded with an attractive rail sleeper style retaining wall, summerhouse with shed behind.  To the front is a paved driveway and an integral double garage.  In total the plot measures approximately 0.30 of an acre.

This property is located on the sought after west side of Purley in a tree-lined crescent off Woodcote Valley Road.
