A chain-free, spacious first-floor two-bedroom flat with a lease in excess of 900 years, located in a quiet but super convenient location for Penge High Street, multiple transport links and also Crystal Palace.
Positioned on the top floor this spacious flat would make an excellent first-time purchase, it ticks a lot of boxes in that it has a great position relative to the High St & multiple transport links, has a very long lease and could be made even more valuable with some cosmetic updating.
The flat has a good distribution of space, with high ceilings throughout, creating fantastic voluminous space in each room. There’s the ability to add value and desirability by opening up the kitchen to the adjacent reception room. The wall separating the two rooms is a partition wall; which if removed would create a beautiful large open-plan kitchen living room creating an impressive and bright space, especially with the light from the kitchen skylight coupling with the light from the south-west facing living room windows.
Both bedrooms are double rooms, with the master bedroom having large integrated wardrobes behind sliding doors. Both have a wonderfully bright southeast-facing aspect making for wonderfully bright rooms in the first half of the day. The second bedroom has a dual aspect, with one of the windows facing the same southwest direction as the reception room, which will see the sun in the afternoon too, making it an ideal work-from-home space.
The bathroom is in reasonable condition and has a shower over a full-size bath, there’s also a window for ventilation. The block also has a communal garden in the central courtyard and there is also off-street parking on a first-come-first-serve basis, although not all residents have cars, so parking is rarely an issue especially as further parking is available on Howard Road, which has no parking restrictions.
The flat has… • a lease in excess of 900 years • a ground rent of £500 Per annum • a service charge of £800 per annum
Golden Mews is in a peaceful spot tucked away off Howard Road, which is a quiet residential street, once offices, the development has a unique charm; the communal entrance especially is large, charming and very bright.

Penge East Station is 0.6mi away with a link into London Victoria, and Penge West is only slightly further away (0.7mi from the flat) and has the overland running through it, giving easy access to Forest Hill, Brockley, Shoreditch and beyond.
