Ivydale is an exceptional 5 bedroom family home and is a wonderful example of a turn-of-the-century 'arts and crafts' era home. 'Ivydale' is named after the 'I' in Christmas, the name of the local joiner whose trademark craftsmanship can be seen in the neighbouring properties that are named after each letter from his wife Laura's name and then his own. The buildings include his personal trademark elements and due to their local distinction, the houses on Perry Vale now form part of the Christmas Conservation Area in Forest Hill.
Externally, the property features the beautiful deep red clay brickwork and traditional roughcast rendered first floor with clay tiled roof. The original timber sash windows and detailed canopy over the front door stand out as exquisite examples of their time. There is off-street parking for up to 2 cars. PV panels are installed on the roof which generates additional electricity to help manage the cost of energy. The rear garden can be accessed via the side passage. The rear garden has been landscaped to include a patio that leads onto a laid lawn surrounded by borders of mature shrubs and perennial plants.
Internally, the ground floor comprises; a welcoming entrance hall with beautifully maintained original floor tiles, the wooden skirting boards, banister and architraves are part of the charm of a 'Christmas house' and their off-white finish contrasts perfectly with the pastel walls. There are 2 reception rooms that feature the original fireplaces and recently installed wooden flooring, the front room has original sash windows and the rear french windows opening out into the conservatory which in turn has doors out to the rear garden. The kitchen has been recently installed and is a handless fitted type with central island, integrated appliances and space for an American-style fridge freezer. The first-floor features recently installed parquet flooring throughout the landing and bedrooms. Each of the bedrooms has had plantation shutter blinds installed and the 2 main bedrooms feature the original fire surrounds. The family bathroom is a timeless monochrome style that Mary Quant would be proud of. There is under-floor heating and it comprises; a free-standing tub, basin and a low-level concealed cistern WC. The second floor has undergone a loft conversion and now forms a master suite with an expansive bedroom and an ensuite with Japanese style WC, his and hers sink and under-floor heating. The vaulted ceilings and skylights give the room a Scandanavian retreat feeling whilst the built-in wall-to-wall storage should be sufficient to store an enviable clothing collection.
