A well-presented and beautifully quirky top floor one bedroom period conversion flat, in a very popular location on the border of Crystal Palace & Penge. Offering a beautiful interior, masses of privacy and a super long lease, this is a fantastic home for a first-time buyer that is incredibly convenient for the best the area has to offer, including The Triangle, the Park & multiple transport links.
Offering well-thought-out space with high ceilings, which is rare for a top-floor flat, this beautiful home offers an incredible amount of privacy, there are no flats beside or above it and none of the windows oppose another building, giving it a genuine sense of seclusion that is so rare in London, especially when in such a prime location.
There’s a large open plan kitchen/living space, which is great when entertaining, and with the high ceilings and generous length of the room (23ft) it makes for an impressive space! The kitchen is well-finished and has plenty of worktop space and generous storage too, there is also a large integrated fridge and a further area adjacent to the kitchen area that houses the boiler and washing machine, which could also be used for further storage or to create a pantry area if desired.
The bedroom is also a generous-sized room with high ceilings, it’s bright due to its large window and skylight which both have a southeast-facing aspect, there is integrated storage and scope to add plenty more if needed due to the generous floor space, there’s also a nook between the bedroom and reception that would make a great storage cupboard too.
Off the bedroom is a stunning bathroom that has a shower over a full-size bath, a herringbone floor and lovely tiled walls, the finish is really slick and it’s a really lovely space to get ready in.
We understand the flat has… . a leasehold tenure with approx. 198 years remaining. . a ground rent which is £150 per annum . a service charge of £1000 per annum
The communal garden is rarely used by residents and is a sun trap in the evening, with its west facing aspect it gets the late afternoon and evening sun and is a lovely space to grab a book, a gin and put your feet up, we’d personally put a hammock in it next to a small gin table!
Location wise the flat is 0.2mi from the Park entrance, with the nearest part being the boating lake and Dinosaurs. Penge West station is 0.5 mi away giving access to the overland line making access to The City and Shoreditch a breeze, Penge East is 0.8mi away which is a short train journey to Victoria. Crystal Palace Station is 0.4mi away and gives direct access to London Bridge as well as Victoria (via Forest Hill), having multiple station options within easy reach is a real asset of this location, it’s also a popular road for its architecture and as is found across London on roads that border our large parks the buildings are huge and have a sense of grandeur about them.
The Triangle is just over half a mile away where you are spoilt for choice with restaurants, pubs, brilliant eateries, and even an Everyman Cinema. There’s a yoga school, a variety of coffee shops from the indie artisanal variety to the bigger chains, one of our faves is “Four Boroughs” their Falafel and Kimchi wraps and Cinnamon Swirls are as good as their coffee!
For the practical stuff and bigger shops there is a reasonable sized Sainsbury’s and the wonderful Crystal Palace Food Market on Haynes Lane, which operates every Saturday offering the best from small sustainable farmers and local food producers, think of it as a local Borough Market with a distinct Crystal Palace vibe.
