Commuters have further scope, being close to the N11/M11/M50 corridor.

Silverdale is presented and maintained to meticulous standards incorporating and preserving many original period features; for example, sliding-sash windows, quite delightful period fireplaces, elegantly corniced ceilings, stained-glass windows, and graciously proportioned rooms off a stunning arched gallery hall, with its polished mahogany floor, welcoming one to the American-style wet-bar before venturing onwards to a study, library, fine dining room, dual-aspect drawing room, custom-fitted kitchen, and five bedrooms.

Silverdale is approached from King Edward Road via electric gates leading to a gravelled driveway and turning area. The gardens are a delight, with mature specimen trees including cypress and eucalyptus; flowering plants and shrubs, such as rhododendrons and azaleas. The rear garden is in lawn, south/south-westerly, and enjoys lots of solar gain especially on its maintained lawn. To the east of the residence is a slightly raised, possibly former grass tennis court, upon which the vendors have obtained planning permission for a detached dormer residence with its own potential entrance from King Edward Road.
