A pretty one-bedroom flat on the ground floor of Belvedere Road, with direct access to a communal garden. Offered to the market chain free and with a share of freehold, this would make an ideal first-time purchase.
Location is key and should always be the top consideration when investing, especially for the first time, and Belvedere Rd is one of the most sought-after roads in the area. It’s close to Crystal Palace Park, The Station, and of course, The Triangle, giving you an incredible array of coffee shops, restaurants and gastro pubs within very easy reach.
The flat has a lovely open-plan kitchen/living area, which is both well-proportioned and also nicely finished; there are hardwood floors and integrated spotlights, and the room has also been newly decorated. The kitchen has lots of storage, generous amounts of worktop space, the all-important gas hob and an integrated electric oven!
At the rear is the bedroom, which benefits from plenty of natural light due to its eastern aspect. It’s a great size bedroom, and there is plenty of space for wardrobes, drawers and a desk if needed. There are the same hardwood floors found in the rest of the flat, which is a nice touch and ideal for anyone wanting to keep a pet or who has allergies. Conveniently, the bathroom comes off the bedroom, which has a shower over a full-size bath and is nicely finished, with white metro tiles and contemporary sanitaryware.
The bedroom also gives direct access to the communal gardens, which is a key feature of the flat; immediately outside is a patio area which feels quite private and is set away from the main part of the garden. This direct access is perfect for anyone wanting to keep a pet or wants an outside space without the upkeep, as there is a gardener!
The flat has a share of freehold; as such there is no ground rent, and the service charge is £100 per month.
Location wise the flat sits on a prime spot on one of Palace’s nicest roads, the Triangle is 0.4 mi away (9 mins according to google maps), where you are spoilt for choice with restaurants, pubs, brilliant eateries, and even an Everyman Cinema.
On Church Road there is a yoga school, there’s a choice of coffee shops and for the practical stuff and bigger shops there is a reasonable sized Sainsbury’s and the wonderful Crystal Palace Food Market on Haynes Lane is nearby, which operates every Saturday offering the best from small sustainable farmers and local food producers, think a local Borough Market vibe.
Crystal Palace Station is 0.4 mi away, giving access to London Bridge & Victoria as well as the city, Shoreditch and East London.
Crystal Palace Park is also 0.4 mi away (8 mins according to google maps), which offers 200 acres of grade 2 listed grounds to enjoy, it also houses the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre with its Olympic swimming pool, a gym, squash courts and a few activities you wouldn’t find at your average gym including trampolining, beach volleyball and an on-site physio.
