A home for all seasons, this historical Corbett Estate house in Catford offers stylish and practical spaces, plus a delightful garden with a hideaway garden studio.

Ardfillan Road, Catford, 4 Bed. House




Loving attention has been poured into this four-bedroom home, which has been extended and enhanced to create a welcoming atmosphere. The downstairs has been thoughtfully redesigned, with an industrial-chic kitchen you’ll want to congregate in and bi-fold doors that open onto a garden that bursts with blooms. This is an authentic outdoor living space––you can sit and enjoy the view or dine al fresco. And in cooler months, you can retreat to the cosiness of the studio, your very own getaway at the bottom of the garden.

The decor is bold and artfully executed. The colours create warmth and style—we particularly love the clay of the living room and the blue woodwork throughout. Upstairs, there are three charming bedrooms, each with its own personality, and a bathroom full of flair. The loft room is the epitome of escapism. Tucked away with the sun pouring through the skylights, it’s a place to enjoy quiet moments.

Part of the historical Corbett Estate, Ardfillan Road, is in an attractive part of Catford with a lively community spirit. Catford is on the cusp of having a moment, and with the independent Catford Mews Cinema and refreshed Catford Constitutional Club, complete with a Fairytop Garden Zoo, plus a monthly food market to get your fix of global street food, it’s easy to see why. And it’s not short on green spaces, with nearby Foster Park featuring ancient woodland and Mountsfield Park hosting events and a community garden.


We have loved living in this wonderful family home in an area where we have made lifelong friends.

Our road is quiet and safe. The sense of community here has been an unexpected benefit of living in this peaceful pocket of South London, and we will miss it dearly.

However, we sometimes rely on the accuracy of the information provided to us by the seller and others. Also, please note that we often round up/down total floor plan measurements and/or use approximate distances.

1 Catford Constitutional Club

Catford Constitutional is a laid-back, 1970s twist on the Great British public house. It has a dining area and garden, cask ales on tap (including its own in-house brew, Volden Session), and classic pub grub. The whole building is set to be a multi-storey delight, with pleasures to explore on each floor, so there is much to like about the place.

2 Yoga House

Yoga House (Catford) opened in April 2019. In their own words: "it was created with a desire to welcome everyone to come as they are, to experience the life-changing practice of yoga, and to feel the uplifting energy of belonging to a community". We couldn't agree more with this sentiment.

3 Catford Mews Cinema

Opening in September 2019, Catford Mews is a community-driven cinema and entertainment space with three screens, showing a mix of Hollywood blockbusters and independents. Local foodies provide options to eat, and there is also a café and bar. There is even a room and live music space (which has a late license) to support and nurture local talent.

4 Beckenham Place Park

Just a short drive away, this country park feels a million miles away from the city. It’s easy whiling away the day – paddle board or have a dip in the swimming pond, walk the grounds or peruse the Sunday food market.

5 Jones of Brockley

Your one-stop shop for everything and anything yummy. Pick up store cupboard staples, something special for dinner or the best of the best in picky bits. And don’t worry if you overload (it’s easily done) - they deliver!
