Full property description

A beautifully presented two-bedroom maisonette with a private garden, a share of freehold, a private entrance and a bonus snug/office/gym room! Located on a popular residential road with great transport links nearby, including a tram stop moments away that takes you to Beckenham Junction (in just four minutes), and Clock House & Kent House at the end of the road, this amazing flat ticks all the must-have boxes!

Unlike most maisonettes on this road, this flat has been remodelled to create a larger, more open living space at the centre of the flat. As you ascend the stairs and enter this space you’ll immediately appreciate the full width of the building and how this remodelling has created a generous and very homely living space, it’s also semi-open plan to the kitchen/dining space, which is fantastic when entertaining and gives a fantastic flow and open feel to the two spaces.

The kitchen/diner is an incredibly bright room, it has south-west facing windows which get the light from early afternoon through to the evening, there’s space for a decent-sized dining table or you could opt for a kitchen island if you prefer a more casual dining setting. The kitchen is nicely finished with wooden tops and metro-tiled splashbacks, there’s a slight country cottage aesthetic, and the L-shaped worktop configuration works well when whipping up a storm for your guests, keeping everything close to hand!

The bedrooms are at the front of the building and benefit from an ideal southeast aspect making them gloriously bright from morning to early afternoon. Both rooms come off a small hall, which has some useful storage, ideal for ironing boards, vacuums etc. Both rooms have a particular charm to them, the smaller room has low-level panelling and the master has a classic yet modern vibe, with a very pretty fireplace and cornicing running the perimeter of the ceiling.

The bathroom is at the rear of the flat and has also been remodelled from the original layout, it’s a large bathroom by anyone’s standards and has a lovely view over the garden. There’s a decadent-looking claw-foot bath with a large rain shower overhead, giving you the best of both worlds. The modern sanitaryware & fittings, tiled walls and floors finish the space nicely, alongside the wooden top running under the sink and along the window sill.

Just past the bathroom are the stairs down to the garden, which you enter via a rather unique room we haven’t seen any other flat have on this road, and owing to its separation from the main part of the flat we feel it would make a fantastic office space for those needing to work from home, or a gym or a snug or even a bar that would prove useful when entertaining in the garden, it currently houses the washing machine which is useful to keep your laundry away from the open plan living space. There is also a loft space which is useful for storage, which is a sizeable space and opens up the potential to convert the flat into the loft space, subject of course to your co-freeholder and council’s consent.

The garden is beautifully done and due to its length, it gets the southern sun during the day and the western sun in the afternoon and evening. It’s designed to be low maintenance, large flagstones and some decking ensures you’ll never need to choose whose turn it is to mow the grass!

The flat has a share of freehold and thus there are no service charges or ground rent, just an annual contribution to building insurance.

Transport-wise the flat is really well connected, it’s only 0.1 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. Elmers End Station is just over half a mile away and offers another Tram link and also a direct connection to Charing Cross.

The local parade on Elmers End Rd has a Co-op, a gym, a cafe and a few other useful amenities, including the newly opened Italian restaurant “Bella Vista”, a very helpful post office, dry cleaners, a hardware shop and nail salon. The other end of the road offers the popular El Molino tapas and a craft brewery in Br3wery.

Beckenham High St would likely be your go-to for a night out, owing to how accessible it is via Birkbeck station, and offers a vast variety of restaurants providing a truly global selection of cuisines to choose from, as well as many cafes and coffee shops. Crystal Palace is another option at just under 1.5 miles away, famed for its independent shops and artisan sellers, there are very few chain shops on The Triangle which is widely celebrated and it has an abundance of lovely coffee shops, incredible restaurants and gastro pubs, as well as galleries, yoga schools, an everyman cinema and a farmers market which operates every Saturday on Haynes Lane.

Elmers End is down the road, for your bigger shop there is a large Tesco Supermarket, and just before Elmers End is South Norwood Country Park which offers 125 acres of parkland, wetlands and meadows, great for dog walking and exercising.

The local schools are very sought after, with the most popular ones being Stewart Fleming (rated outstanding), Churchfields, and the perennially popular Balgowan primary school are also very nearby, making this location sought after by young families.
