A charming one-bedroom period garden maisonette with huge scope to extend, modernise and add value, that boasts its own private entrance, a private garden and close proximity to transport links too.
Located moments from Avenue Road tram stop, which is only two stops away from Beckenham Junction station, opening up multiple transport links including London Victoria & London Bridge, and giving easy access to Beckenham High St with its array of classy cafes, bars, pubs & celebrated restaurants! Kent House & Clock House stations are very close by, as is Birkbeck, although with access to the tram stop so close, it’s likely to be your go-to transport link!
The reception room is at the front of the building and benefits from a gloriously bright southern aspect with two large windows exploiting this, some neighbours have used this room as their bedroom owing to the fantastically bright aspect.
Moving into the middle of the flat is the bedroom which has high ceilings, and a window overlooking the side return going down to the garden.
The kitchen is spacious, with room for a proper table, it has generous storage and ample worktop space, although there is an opportunity to make more of the space, it does currently work well. If the flat were to be extended this space could be reconfigured and a patio space added too.
The bathroom features a shower over a full-size bath and whilst perfectly functional, does give further opportunity for the new owner to improve it and add value whilst designing it to their own taste.
The private garden is directly accessed via the flat, just off the kitchen and gets the western sun in the afternoon & evening but still gets the southern sun in the early part of the day too. There is scope to extend the flat into the garden and also add an external studio to work from home, like many neighbours have.
Location wise this home is nearby multiple transport links, with Avenue Road tram stop being the nearest, which is a mere 0.2 mi away, this is only two stops from Beckenham Junction where there is a multitude of transport options, including a fast link to Victoria and also London Bridge. Kent House & Clock House stations are also approx. half a mile away.
For those who might put down roots in the local area it’s worth noting that Balgowan Primary School is nearby and accessible, as is Stuart Fleming (rated Outstanding), and the brilliant Churchfields are moments away too.
Nearby at Elmers End there is a large Tesco supermarket, and more locally, just passed Birkbeck station, there is a post office, a co-op, a couple of cafes catering to all tastes, barbers, gym and other amenities too. Beckenham High St is easy to access and offers a wide selection of shops and offers a village feel; there is a cinema, dentists, Sainsbury’s and an array of restaurants from chains such as Zizzi to independents which are locally celebrated; there really is something for everyone on Beckenham High Street, Penge High Street, Crystal Palace and Sydenham are all within easy reach too.
In summary, this is a great flat that offers scope to add value; being the 9th property we have recently sold on this road (many of which have been similar to this), we recognise the potential in this flat and have priced it reflective of condition, neighbouring flats with the extension work done have been trading between £360,000 – £400,000 very recently, for which we can provide floorplans and evidence of these other sales on the road to assist, if required.
