A pretty first-floor two-bedroom flat with a share of freehold, located on the highly sought-after St Julians Road in the heart of West Norwood. This split-level flat is beautifully finished with a modern kitchen & bathroom and a good distribution of its space across all the rooms, coupled with its incredible location, it’s a perfect first-time purchase.
At the front of the flat, you have the living room, which is spacious and has large sash windows allowing natural light to flood in, notably, the windows are double-glazed sash windows which are quite an investment, but absolutely worth it as they keep the period look but are high performing. There are charming wooden floors and high ceilings, adding to the sense of space and volume in the room, and the fireplace surround adds to that period vibe.
The kitchen is beautiful, with acres of solid wood worktops and abundant storage, making it perfect for those who love to cook and entertain, especially as there is a gas hob! The horseshoe configuration keeps everything close to hand when cooking, and the positioning of the kitchen adjacent to the reception room allows you to be social while cooking with guests over.
The master bedroom is spacious and bright, it has an eastern aspect, making it a particularly bright space in the morning. Being at the rear of the flat it’s incredibly quiet and peaceful, it’s pretty too with beautiful wide-plank wood floors and practical as there’s lots of space for wardrobes!
The second bedroom has a large wardrobe integrated and faces the same direction as the master bedroom, there’s space for a double bed and a desk for those that work from home, or further storage if needed, it’s an ideal office or study and will double up as a comfortable guest bedroom when needed.
The bathroom is very pretty, there’s a shower over a full-size bath, giving you the best of both worlds and the fit and finish are fantastic; with pastel blue metro tiles on the walls and hexagonal tiles on the floor, it feels real quality and is a lovely place to get ready in!
