A beautiful one bedroom ground floor conversion flat on one of Crystal Palace’s most sought after roads, tucked away just behind the Triangle with views to the City. The flat has character in abundance and its trump cards are it’s stunning reception room, its location, its long lease (over 150 years) and it also has no service charges. Gems like this rarely come to the market and it’s these type of flats that make the best first time purchases.
Camden Hill Road runs parallel to Westow Hill & perpendicular to Gipsy Hill, meaning you can stroll to the Triangle (literally) in moments and also have Gipsy Hill Station a couple of minutes away (downhill on the way there!) with a quick and direct link to Victoria and Clapham Junction. Crystal Palace Station is also a short walk away with more connections, including one to London Bridge and also Shoreditch & the City via the East London Line.
The building was once a pretty bay fronted Victorian house, now flats with this particular flats reception room taking advantage of that beautiful bay window, which also has the original period style sashes and the original wood panelling around the windows too. There’s a charming fireplace with marble surround, and above cornicing and a picture rail as you would expect to find in a beautiful reception room from the Victorian era.
Leading off the reception room is the kitchen, in a galley style, it has views to the city over the rooftops of Woodland Hill, reminding you of the fantastic position the flat occupies. There is plenty of worktop space and storage in the kitchen, it also houses a brand new Worcester gas combi boiler which has been very recently installed. Notably, the adjoining wall between the kitchen and the reception is a partition wall and could easily be removed creating an even more attractive space with the kitchen and reception flowing into each other.
In the middle of the flat is a brand new bathroom which was installed in July 2022, featuring a rain shower over a large bath, with partially tiled walls and floor; its beautifully modern yet complements the period charm of the flat. At the rear of the flat is the bedroom, which has that stunning view to the city through a large sash window, the bedroom also has wooden floors.
The flat has a long lease believed to be in the region of 153 years, there are no formal service charges and the ground rent has never been demanded, the freeholder just asks for a contribution to the buildings insurance and has always been consultative with the lessees on the building and its running.
Location wise, the flat is 0.1mi from Westow Hill, 0.3mi from Gipsy Hill Station and half a mile from Crystal Palace Station, the term “envious location” is often overused by estate agents, but in this case we can say it really has an envious location!
On your doorstep you are spoilt for choice with restaurants, pubs, brilliant eateries, an Everyman Cinema, yoga schools, coffee shops and the list goes on! There is also a Sainsbury’s supermarket 0.2mi away and the wonderful Crystal Palace Food Market on Haynes Lane which operates every Saturday offering the best from small sustainable farmers and local food producers is the same distance.
