A well-presented and conveniently located flat with a long lease and with the added bonus of a WFH space / occasional second bedroom. Located just over 100 yards away from Brockley Station, the flat is convenient not just for transport links but also for the social aspect that living in such a great area brings, being next to a Sainsbury’s and a highly recommended brunch and coffee spot in “Good as Gold” is also a bit of a bonus!
The flat has a social layout as the living space is open plan to the kitchen, which is great for entertaining, the living room offers space for a defined dining area and also a decent lounge space too! That beautiful parquet flooring runs throughout the flat, its rarely seen nowadays, yet will last a lifetime as it can be sanded back over and over again, and it adds a huge amount of character to the flat as well as being super practical too.
The main bedroom is a good size room with space for plenty of wardrobes and a large bed, its also bright in the mornings as it faces partially east. The high ceilings and the flooring give a lovely vibe to the bedroom and owing to the second bedroom you could keep this room minimalist and have all your storage & desk etc in the other room.
The bathroom has a full-size bath with a shower over it, the parquet flooring continues into it and the walls around the bath are mainly tiled. The second bedroom / office is a really useful space to work from, it could also be great for occasional guests or to have as a walk-in wardrobe / dressing room.
The entrance to the flat is off a landing that you could (unofficially) use as an outside space, there is currently a bistro table outside which is great for an al-fresco glass of vino or a morning coffee!
We understand the flat has… …a lease in the region of 115 years …a service charge of £672 PA …a ground rent of £250 PA
Location wise the flat is approx. 140 yards from Brockley mainline station, which offers a quick link into London Bridge (typically 13 mins and 2 stops!) as well as going directly to Shoreditch High St & beyond, there is also a direct link to East Croydon which is incredibly useful to link into Gatwick airport. Despite the proximity to the station we must stress that train noise is not an issue here.
Brockley is a diverse & creative hotbed, incredibly popular with singles, couples and families alike, the housing stock is handsome, and the demand for homes is strong. It’s also incredibly well located for access into central London, but few will venture into town during their time off as there is so much to do in SE4, especially during the weekends, i.e. visiting Brockley Market, which is a foodie’s heaven. There is a strong sense of community here too and locals love nothing more than coming together at one of the local coffee shops, pubs or cafés that serve the area so well, there’s also an annual nine day long community arts project (search for “Brockley Max”) and a really vibrant street art scene too. Immediately neighbouring this flat is the celebrated “Good as Gold”, which is a speciality coffee shop which also does amazing food, it’s owner operated and that shows as the service is second to none, there’s also “water into beer” which gets insanely good reviews and a is a beer lovers paradise, you can buy 200 different craft beers as well as everything needed for home brewing, they also host gigs, quizzes and comedy nights. For the non-beer or coffee essentials, there’s a Sainsbury’s local next door too!
