Full property description

A stunning and generously proportioned Victorian conversion flat with a share of freehold, fantastic internal space, off street parking & a communal garden. This beautiful property offers a rare opportunity to own a prime flat in a great location convenient for Crystal Palace’s Triangle & many green parks.

This beautifully styled flat has generous floor space that is incredibly well arranged. There is little to no wasted space, and due to the ceiling height, each room has great volume. It’s also fantastically bright, and due to the south-eastern aspect, the living room is flooded with light in the first half of the day.

Perfect for entertaining guests or relaxing with family, the reception room is a sizeable space. It offers enough room to have a large defined dining area and a sizeable lounge area. The showpiece, though, really is those stunning bay windows; they light up the room beautifully and are so characterful. The layout of the kitchen is great for those who like to entertain as it is a semi-open plan layout, but it will likely work for those who prefer not to have an open plan kitchen-living space, too. The wall dividing the two spaces is a partition wall, so for anyone who prefers an open-plan space, this can be easily and cheaply removed.

The kitchen is well laid out, with generous worktop space and plentiful storage, and for those who enjoy cooking, there’s the all-important gas hob. If the kitchen were to be opened up to the reception there’s scope to have a large island or breakfast bar which would also create more storage underneath it, whilst opening up the space to make it feel bigger, brighter and more social.

Along the hall, you’ll find the bedrooms; both rooms are fantastic sizes and have the same wonderful ceiling height found in the reception, which really adds to the sense of space the flat has. The main bedroom has a pair of attractive sash windows, which have the same southeast aspect as the reception room, flooding the room with light from the morning through to the afternoon. There’s scope to add fitted wardrobes in the alcove, but we are also fans of how our client has arranged their storage; it leaves the room feeling bigger, and there’s additional storage in the hall, just outside. 

The bathroom is clean, contemporary, and very practical; there’s a large walk-in corner shower with tiled walls, and the sanitaryware is modern and works well with the flat’s overall vibe.

Outside, there’s a communal garden for residents to enjoy; it has a northwest aspect, which gets the late afternoon and evening sun, which is ideal for BBQs towards the end of the day. There’s also off-street parking on the driveway; there are no allocated spaces, but there are more spaces than cars, and it works well. The surrounding roads are also unrestricted for parking for those with multiple vehicles.

Location-wise, the flat is just next to the 19-acre Upper Norwood Rec’, which has free tennis courts and lots of dog walking space; there’s also a gardening and community group that meets monthly to ensure the well-being of the park, which is a lovely showing of the local community spirit. Westow Park is 0.2 miles away and has some beautiful trees, a children’s playground and, depending on the season, an artisan coffee van.

The hugely celebrated Triangle is half a mile away (or a 12 min walk away, according to Google Maps); it is home to an array of beautiful cafes, restaurants, gastro pubs, an Everyman cinema, yoga schools, a reasonably sized Sainsbury’s and many lovely coffee shops, only one of which is a chain!

If the two neighbouring parks weren’t enough, Crystal Palace Park is a mile away and is home to the national sports centre, our infamous dinosaurs, and 200 acres of grade two-listed grounds. Many music events and theatrical performances are held in the park over the year; there’s something in the park for everyone on most weekends through the summer.

Transport-wise, Gipsy Hill Station is 0.8 mi away, and Crystal Palace Station is 1 mi away, offering links to both London Bridge and Victoria. Nearby buses are abundant, and there’s a nearby stop on the new “Superloop” route, taking you into Waterloo, Holborn & Russell Sq with fewer stops than a traditional bus, which greatly speeds up journey times. 

  • The flat has a share of freehold with an accompanying lease with 994 years remaining.

  • The service charge is £2650 PA, which includes a contribution to a sinking fund (we have an annual breakdown of costs for anyone that is interested, this is an incredibly well cared for and run building!).

  • There is no ground rent as it is a share of freehold.

  • The council tax is Croydon Band C, which is £2103.91 PA.
