Full property description

A loft/warehouse conversion style two-bedroom first floor apartment with an industrial vibe, garden access and a long lease, close to Crystal Palace Park and Sydenham’s buzzing high street.

The moment you walk into this flat you’ll be struck by the brightness and sense of space. A spacious entrance hall welcomes you with its wood flooring that runs all the way through to the kitchen and generous living space. Exposed steel and a sense of light give the apartment a warehouse vibe and the space is perfect for entertaining or catching up after a busy day. The developers, Vanquis Homes, are renowned for their uncompromising design and high-end finish, which is exactly what you’ll find here.

A stylish, two-tone, Shaker-style kitchen with concrete-style worktops offers a contrast to the industrial interior and it works really well. There’s a Belfast sink, hexagonal tiles and all the space you need to whip up a quick mid-week pasta, with clever storage for all your herbs, spices, pots and pans. But if you really fancy yourself as a chef you’ll appreciate the cream Belling dual fuel range cooker with a five-ring gas hob that’s perfect for serving up a cracking roast dinner. And thanks to the open-plan layout you won’t miss a moment of the conversation when you’re cooking and entertaining. A freestanding fridge freezer completes the range of appliances.

Over to the open-plan living area, there’s room for a dining table and several sofas, so you can really make the most of this relaxing and luxurious space. One of the many design features we love is the soft grey hardwood double-glazed sashwindows, with their co-ordinating blinds. Then there are the built-in shelves, with natural wood, giving the room texture and warmth. These clever design touches are echoed in the bedrooms too, with their natural wood door frames.

Both bedrooms are doubles, with plenty of room for storage. The wood floor continues throughout, and not only is it easy to clean, but it’s also pet-friendly and allergen-free. Plus: it looks stunning and really ties the rooms together.

In the bathroom you’ll find both a bath and rain shower, as well as an on-trend copper towel rail. White metro tiles contrast brilliantly with the black and white floor and you can tell every design decision has been so well considered.

The flat also has a private garden, whilst it doesn’t have direct access it is a private space that is easy to maintain and isn’t overlooked. There’s a secure shed, and with the use of some clever solar panel lights, you can create a space you can use into the evening, ideal for intimate BBQs. For wider space to exercise in Crystal Palace Park is quite literally across the road, and the incredible Brown & Green café is just a hop skip and a jump away!

The flat has…

… a 120-year lease

… no ground rent

… share of freehold, with service charges self-elected by the co-freeholders and is currently £125 a month

Sydenham Avenue is wide, tree-lined street and it’s home to the Lawrie Park Ancient Oak Tree, a local landmark that’s 1,000 years old. It’s moments away from Crystal Palace Park, with its Saturday morning Parkrun. Sydenham station is 0.6 miles away, with its links to Canada Water and Shoreditch High Street on the East London Line, as well as trains to London Bridge, Victoria and West Croydon. It’s a quick and easy trip out to Gatwick Airport from here, too.

You’re near to the popular Crystal Palace triangle, with its vibrant independent shops, restaurants and cafes. We’d recommend a flat white and avocado on toast at Bloom Café, a film at the Everyman Cinema and an afternoon watching sport in the local gastro pub Westow House. If you’re looking to furnish the flat, browse the shops and markets which are full of mid-century pieces. 

Saturday sees the Haynes Lane food market play host to local food producers and sustainable farmers and you can pick up honey, brownies and so much more. On Sunday, grab a coffee at Brown and Green in Crystal Palace Park and browse the park’s open-air food market where you’ll find lots of options for street food and brunch.

Over in Sydenham, start at Cobb’s Corner café for a breakfast burrito and explore the eclectic high street, with its independent book shop, flower stall and friendly DIY store. The Greyhound pub is the stuff of local legend, with particularly good food (try the steak and chips with a craft beer). Fitness fans will love Dragonfly Studio, with its yoga, Pilates and gong baths and there’s also PureGym and The Gym Group.

Dulwich is nearby if you fancy a walk in the woods, an afternoon in the gallery or a bar crawl on lively Lordship Lane.
