A very pretty two-bedroom maisonette with a beautiful private garden, a long lease, a private entrance and just oodles of charm!
Located on a popular residential road with a tram stop moments away that takes you to Beckenham Junction (in just four minutes), this beautiful flat ticks so many boxes, it offers good space, which is nicely distributed across the whole flat and it’s finished really well. The value it offers is fantastic, especially when you consider we recently set a record price for this road with a neighbouring flat that was extremely similar to this one (which sold for £421,000 – feel free to ask us for more info).
This beautiful home has a lot going for it, as well as having its own front door, a private garden, great transport links, amazing neighbours etc. it also has a fabulously bright aspect at the front of the flat; facing southeast, the reception room and second bedroom get great natural light. The reception room is finished nicely, with wood floors, quality double glazing and a pretty period fireplace; there’s a nod to its heritage with the coving and picture rails, which add character and charm.
The bedroom adjacent is a lovely room, ideal as a guest bedroom, office or study, or even a nursery room (there are amazing primary schools nearby if children are in your plans!) and this room and the reception have a degree of privacy as, notably, they don’t directly oppose the front of another house, which gives a nice outlook and that real feeling of privacy, which is so rare in London.
The master bedroom is in the middle of the flat and is nicely decorated, it has a luxury carpet down, making it a warm and comforting space, and one that has ample room for a desk and plentiful storage.
Moving towards the rear of the flat is the kitchen, which is a very charming and bright room (maybe it’s the large triple window!) it has original ceiling beams adding character and charm, which also blend well with the classically styled but very modern kitchen. There are literally acres of (pretty wood) worktops, ideal for the ambitious chef when prepping larger meals, who will no doubt be delighted to be cooking on a large gas hob! There’s plenty of storage space, and also an integrated dishwasher, which will be very useful after having all your mates over, sat around the dining table that fits perfectly in the kitchen!
The bathroom is at the rear of the flat and is finished off well, there’s a rain shower over a bath, giving you the best of both worlds and a window allowing for ventilation, which we find is a non-negotiable for most buyers. The tiles and sanitaryware are real quality and make for a lovely space to get ready in.
The flat has direct access to its garden, via an internal staircase at the rear of the flat, the space the stairs come off acts as a bit of a utility room and has a fair bit of very useful storage. The garden gets the southern sun during the day due to its length and also gets the western sun in the afternoon and evening.
The flat has…
A current lease of 90 years, which will be extended.
A service charge of £880 PA
A ground rent of £100 PA.
Location-wise the flat is 0.2 mi from Avenue Road tram stop, getting you to Beckenham Junction in four minutes, which opens up a direct link to both London Bridge & Victoria.
Clock House Station is 0.5 mi away & Kent House Station is just only slightly further at 0.6 mi away, although it’s unlikely you would use them with the tram stop being so close. The local schools are very sought after, with the most popular ones being Churchfields, Stuart Fleming (rated outstanding) and the perennially popular Balgowan primary school. Locally, there are highly-rated independent restaurants, including the popular El Molino tapas and a craft brewery in Br3wery.
Penge High Street is not far for a wider selection of shops and there’s a larger Sainsburys there too. Beckenham High St would likely be your go-to, owing to how accessible it is via the tram stop nearby, and offers a huge variety of restaurants providing a truly global selection of cuisines to choose from, as well as many cafes and coffee shops.
Elmers End is 0.8 mi away where there is a large Tesco Supermarket, an overland station and also South Norwood Country Park which offers 125 acres of parkland, wetlands and meadow, great for dog walking and exercising.
