DescriptionA rarely available Art Deco (possibly Bauhaus designed) semi detached house on popular tree lined Mead Way.
One of only two 1930's built Art Deco houses on the road, the property benefits from a stunning roof-terrace and wide plot garden offering plenty scope to extend to the rear and upwards (subject to planning permission). The garage is currently being used as an office/work space.
In exceptional condition throughout, the property offers a spacious 1300 sq ft of living space (including the roof terrace), and is situated less than a mile from Bromley South and Hayes BR. It's a similar distance from the shops of Bromley High Street and town centre.
The house is located walking distance to several excellent Primary and Secondary Schools.
The vendor is buying a new build so the onward chain is complete.
A rare chance to buy a stunning and unique family home. Viewings recommended.
What the owners says:
We've absolutely loved living at Mead Way in this truly unique house. We knew the Art Deco houses growing up and fell in love with their design, it was a dream come true when we were offered a chance to buy it. The house is walking distance from Bromley and Hayes village both with train stations for commuters covering access to the City, Victoria and Docklands which made travelling to work easy.
We've watched the Fireworks at Norman Park with our kids and friends over, as we have a brilliant view of the local displays from the roof terrace. Other events take place at the Park, such as the motor pageant - we always enjoy seeing the custom cars arrive. As a family, we sat on the roof this year under blankets to watch the meteor shower. Some great memories.
We're walking distance to the George Pub, and a range of other popular local restaurants. There's an excellent choice of schools both primary and secondary.
This year a Mead Way WhatsApp group was formed, providing a community feel to the road and includes numerous teachers, trades, plus an avid astronomer who shares tips on the night skies. I got some great advice on my new vegetable garden from the local community group.
Our old neighbour when we moved in 12 years ago had been in his house for 30+ years, he was a real character who loved to chat and sit in the sun on his front step. He told us about the Art Deco houses being the first houses on the street. Our current neighbours on both sides are also particularly lovely by the way too :)
Norman Park hosts "Park Run" at the weekend, one for stronger runners and one for kids. There is also an infants park as well as a circuit for running/bike riding. Circuit and football training takes place, as well as it being a home for Bromley Athletics Club.
Hayes Bootfair at the farm is good fun when it's in season. It's a nice place to take a stroll as a family.
Keston village with its common and fishponds is a lovely place to walk and be near nature. Keston has a few nice pubs and cafes. A couple of new ones have popped up this year that we've been meaning to visit.
Hayes feels like it's on the edge of the countryside. A short drive and you're in smaller country villages such as Downe and Westerham, which are really lovely. Locally in Hayes there is a Doctors' Surgery, Dentist, there's a post office a 5 minute walk away, and a selection of take away restaurants for lazy weekends.
We will definitely miss the house, especially the warm summer evenings with friends on the roof.
