Full property description

This beautiful two-double-bedroom conversion flat is on the second (top) floor of a handsome period building on the highly desirable Thicket Road. The flat boasts pretty views, voluminous rooms, a super long lease, a section of the garden and a large loft space. Located moments from Crystal Palace Park and within very easy reach of Penge West Station, Crystal Palace Station, and the Triangle, this flat ticks a lot of boxes!

As well as being brilliantly located, the flat has impressive internal space; on entering the flat, there is a large landing with a southwest-facing window. All the rooms come off this landing, which is a desirable feature that many flats on the road don’t have.

The reception room has charming sash windows and a leafy view; its western aspect floods the room with light in the afternoon and evening. The floorboards appear to be original and give real character to the room.  There’s generous space in the reception, with room for a large dining table and a defined lounge area. The kitchen is adjoining but could be opened up to the reception. We’ve sold a fair few of these flats on the road, and the highest-priced one was almost identical to this in size and layout, which sold for £526,000 last June (no. 44). The difference between these flats in terms of layout was that the kitchen at no. 44 was open-plan, and you would add tremendous value by doing the same here.

The kitchen has the same aspect as the reception and a large sash window, too; it’s arranged in an L-shape, so if you were to open up the space, you may be able to salvage the kitchen units as they don’t run along the wall that adjoins the reception. Its arrangement offers a lot of worktop and storage space, and there’s a gas hob for the discerning cooks as well!

The bedrooms at the rear are both charming rooms, they have a highly desirable southeast aspect, making them incredibly bright in the mornings. Both rooms will easily accommodate all the storage that may be needed, and in the master there’s easily space for a large desk if needed, although the landing will also accommodate a desk saving bedroom space.

The bathroom is nicely finished, there’s a shower over a full-sized bath, the walls are fully tiled, and there’s a large mirror, heated towel rail and wood effect flooring, the bathroom features a loo and there is also a separate WC off the hall, which is useful when you have guests.

The flat is believed to have…

…A 109- year lease
…A service charge of circa £186 a month
…A ground rent of £300 PA

…A council tax band of C in the borough of Bromley, which is £1733 PA

The private section of garden has a southeast facing aspect which gets the sun from morning through to early afternoon, it’s a lovely space to grab a book, a drink and put your feet up, if you wanted a larger outdoor space the park entrance is literally stones throw away, just across the road!

Location-wise, the flat is 120 yards from the Park entrance, with the nearest part being the boating lake and Dinosaurs. Penge West station is 0.4 mi away, giving access to the overland line, making access to The City and Shoreditch a breeze; Penge East is 0.7 mi 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). Thicket Road has multiple station options within easy reach, which is a real asset of this location, but it’s also a famous 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.

Nearby on Anerley Road there is a Tesco Express for the essentials, then there’s Café Chic (a stunning Persian Café), whose falafel & halloumi wraps are our favourites, their coffee’s pretty damn good too, and their garden is the spot for an al-fresco brunch or lunch.

Next door to Chic there’s a Bob Wines, and a few other incredible places you’ll love living next door to, such as the beloved Chatsworth Bakehouse, where locals queue for Sian & Tom’s insanely good sandwiches, focaccia, brownies & pizzas. Then there’s a more recent and very welcome addition to the neighbourhood in the Crystal Palace Wine Club.

Slightly further up the hill is our much loved “Triangle” where you can find the best gastropubs, coffee shops, vintage furniture & clothes shops, art galleries, an everyman cinema and of course the much loved Haynes Lane food market, you wouldn’t ever need to leave the Triangle, it has everything and thankfully it’s largely independent!
