A spacious two-bedroom period maisonette with high ceilings, a large private garden, a long lease and a private entrance. Situated on a quiet, wide, tree-lined residential road, the flat is offered to the market chain free.
Samos Road’s period maisonettes offer fantastic space which is thoughtfully distributed, and as they have their own entrances and private gardens, they are incredibly desirable.
This particular flat has been well-maintained and offers almost 800ft2 of space, which is split over two floors, with the reception, a bedroom and bathroom being on the upper level and a large open kitchen/diner and second bedroom on the lower level.
At the front is a charming reception room with high ceilings, it has a south-west facing aspect and a square bay window, there’s also quality wood floors which run throughout the reception and into the hall and adjacent bedroom. The bedroom is a decent size double room and is conveniently positioned next to the bathroom, which has a shower over a full-size bath.
To the rear is a large kitchen/diner space, it’s large enough to accommodate a large dining table and has plenty of space to entertain. The kitchen itself is well-finished in a contemporary style, with an integrated oven and hob, there’s also an abundance of worktop space and storage is plentiful, too. The second bedroom comes off the kitchen space and is a good-sized double room with the same wood floors found on the upper level.
The garden is accessed via the kitchen, and due to its sheer length gets sun for much of the day, we believe there is scope to install a studio or outbuilding at the end of the garden, creating an ideal work-from-home space.
The flat is believed to have…
…a lease in the region of 117 years
…no service charges
…a ground rent of £150 per annum
Location-wise, the flat is 0.4 mi from Birkbeck Station, with two trains per hour to Beckenham Junction and London Bridge via Crystal Palace. There’s also a tram every ten minutes, which takes you into Beckenham Junction or East Croydon in the opposite direction. Beckenham Junction Station opens up a direct link to both London Bridge & Victoria. Elmers End Station is just under a mile away and offers another Tram link and a direct connection to Charing Cross.
For those wishing to put down roots locally, the local schools are very sought after, with the most popular ones being Stewart Fleming (rated outstanding) which is a few roads away, Churchfields, and the perennially popular Balgowan primary school are also very nearby.
The local parade on Elmers End Rd has a Co-op, a gym, a few cafes and other useful amenities, including a super friendly post office, a dry-cleaners, barbers, hardware shop and the newly opened Italian restaurant “Bella Vista”. There’s an Aldi close by, and Penge High Street is not far for a wider selection of shops, including a larger Sainsbury. Crystal Palace Triangle is within very easy reach and offers an eclectic mix of largely independent shops ranging from vintage clothes shops, to coffee shops, some incredible gastro pubs, restaurants and craft shops too.
Elmers End is just over a mile away and has a large Tesco Supermarket, and just before Elmers End is South Norwood Country Park which offers 125 acres of parkland, wetlands and meadow, great for dog walking and exercising.
Please note some of the photos have been virtually staged to better help you imagine the space and gain a perspective of the space that isn’t possible when it’s empty.
