Internally, the property comprises; a box bay-fronted living room with feature fireplace, a relatively good sized fitted kitchen to the front (which also provides access to the rear garden via a side door), two well-proportioned and again relatively good sized bedrooms and furthermore an ample-sized bathroom. Externally, there is an attractive rear garden with both patio and lawn areas, as well as a detached garage (which, via a side gate, can be directly accessed by a vehicle). Additionally, there is a further attractive and well-proportioned garden to the front. Objectively, the property does require modernisation throughout but is both gas centrally heated (incidentally featuring a relatively new boiler) and also features some double glazing.

Somerden Road is, as referenced, very tranquil being a quiet residential road and also with extensive views of countryside to the rear of the property. At the same time however, Somerden Road is also conveniently-located with a range of general amenities within close proximity. Orpington High Street and its array of; shops, restaurants/bars and leisure facilities is easily accessible via short bus ride (with a nearby bus route) or drive. Both St. Mary Cray and Orpington Stations are slightly further afield but again easily-accessible and offering frequent services into Central London. There is also a number of popular and reputable schools nearby, namely the Ofsted "Good" rated (both) St. Philomena's and Blenheim Primary Schools. Offered to the market with the benefit of no onward chain.
