Full property description

A bright two double-bedroom top-floor flat with far-reaching views to the south and an incredibly bright aspect. It also has allocated parking, two outdoor spaces and offers spacious open-plan living in a popular development convenient for multiple transport links and Crystal Palace Triangle and Park.

Located on the top floor (with lift), the views to the southeast are fantastic, giving it a very bright aspect. The large balcony also faces the same direction, making it a great place to relax, enjoy a drink, or dine al-fresco. The second outside space is a roof terrace, which is larger than the front balcony and gives you even more space to entertain on.  Notably, being on the top floor means there are no other flats above this flat, and also, no other flats adjoin on the three sides of the flat, making it very quiet and peaceful. 

The kitchen is well-finished, and its open-plan layout will appeal to those who like to entertain, whilst open plan, there is more than enough space for a defined dining space and a defined lounge space, and the outdoor spaces will no doubt become your default dining spaces in better weather.

The bedrooms are both good-sized rooms, the smaller room overlooks the balcony and has that bright south-eastern aspect, making it a lovely room to work from during the day due to its natural light. The larger of the bedrooms is adjacent to the bathroom and has a generous footprint. The bathroom is beautifully finished with a shower over a full-size bath, there’s luxury tiles surrounding the bath and a general high level of finish.

The flat has…

•            A lease believed to be 245 years.

•            The service charge last year was just under £2000, although this will now drop as the managing agents were collecting funds for a renewal of the heating system, which is now complete.

•            A ground rent of £500 PA

•            The council tax is Band C in the borough of Bromley, which is £1733 PA

•            An allocated parking space (not underground).

Location-wise, the flat is 0.4 mi from Anerley Station and 0.6 mi from Crystal Palace Park, with the nearest entrance being on Thicket Road, where the boating lake and Dinosaurs are. Penge West station is 0.7 mi away giving access to the overland line making access to The City and Shoreditch a breeze, Penge East is 1.1 mi away which is a short train journey to Victoria. Crystal Palace Station is 0.7 mi away and gives direct access to London Bridge as well as Victoria (via Forest Hill), having multiple station options within easy reach is a real asset of this location.

Just up the road you have a Tesco express for the essentials, then there’s Café Chic (a stunning Persian Café), who’s falafel & halloumi wraps are our favourites, their coffee’s pretty damn good too and their garden is the spot for an al-fresco brunch or lunch. Next door to Chic there’s a Bob Wines, and a few other incredible places you’ll love living next door to, such as the beloved Chatsworth Bakehouse, where locals queue for Sian & Tom’s insanely good sandwiches, focaccia, brownies & pizzas, and then there’s a more recent and very welcome addition to the neighbourhood in the Crystal Palace Wine Club, an intimate but quality wine bar which is thankfully only a two minute walk away, which no doubt you’ll appreciate at the end of the night!

Crystal Palace Park is just next to the station (0.7 mi away from the flat), offering 200 acres of listed parkland, its host to many music and cultural events throughout the year and loved for its boating lake, concert bowl, national sports centre and of course, its Dinosaurs!

Slightly further away is our much loved “Triangle” where you can find the best gastropubs, coffee shops, vintage furniture & clothes shops, art galleries, an everyman cinema and of course the much loved Haynes Lane food market, you wouldn’t ever need to leave the Triangle, it has everything and thankfully it’s largely independent!
