Full property description

This truly special one-bedroom period conversion flat is located on the first floor in a unique detached house in the conservation area at the top of the highly coveted Belvedere Rd, on the corner of Tudor Rd—quite literally moments from the Triangle. Offered chain-free, this elegant home has a long lease, a communal garden, off-street parking, and a luxury south-facing kitchen with stunning and far-reaching views.

To fully appreciate this space, please check out our video and the 3D virtual tour.

Brilliantly located, this flat is close to Crystal Palace Park and within very easy reach of Crystal Palace Station. Most importantly, it’s just a few metres from the Triangle, putting the best gastropubs, coffee shops, restaurants, and galleries on your doorstep.

On entering the building, you’re greeted with generously sized common parts, ideal for anyone who wants to keep their bike tucked away; then, up a short flight of stairs, and you’re at the flat’s entrance. Once in, there’s a cute entrance hall, which can easily accommodate a desk for those needing to WFH. It’s currently home to a cosy chair and coat hanging space and is a great reading nook, but whatever you use it for, it’s just nice to have an entrance like this in a one-bedroom flat.

The reception room has high ceilings, a charming fireplace and alcove shelving, allowing you to style the room to suit your tastes. The vibe is definitely modern, but the period character is clearly here. There’s space for a proper dining table and large sofa, and the hardwood flooring recreates the look and feel of original Victorian flooring, it also runs through to the hall and bedroom, which is a quality touch.

This kitchen can only be described in superlatives; not only does it have the most epic view, but it is also beautifully finished! It has a vast window that frames the view, and as it’s perched at the highest point in Palace, with a southeastern view towards the North Downs, it’s gloriously bright from early morning to early afternoon. There’s a gas hob and acres of (quartz) worktop space, the butler sink adds some charm and all the appliances are integrated.

Worth mentioning also is the view over the back of Belvedere Rd with its beautiful trees. In particular, the Lebanon Cedar on the corner of Cintra Park, (which we’re lucky to have a few of these here in Palace; there’s another in the park & one on the corner of Bedwardine & Harold Rd). Directly below the kitchen and at the end of the neighbour’s garden is a very curious historic octagonal tower; it was once in the garden of this house and has a listed status, but its history is somewhat of a mystery (you can see it properly in our video), and from autumn to late spring when the trees have shed the view of it is unobstructed.

The bedroom is spacious and has plentiful built-in wardrobe space, enough for a couple or the most committed fashionista. There are two large round-head sash windows, which can be found in a few of the grander buildings around Tudor & Church Road, they’re a very pretty feature, and as we are in the conservation area here they’ll remain forever more! Notably, the windows are secondary glazed, which allows the flat to keep its originality but increases its energy efficiency.

The bathroom is pretty and well-finished; it has a rain shower over a bath and fully tiled walls. There is a charming porthole-style round window at one end of the bathroom and a double-glazed window at the opposite side, so it’s always bright, especially in the morning with that eastern sun poking through!

The lush communal garden is well-tended and has a long lawn flanked by pretty, mature borders. Owing to its southeastern aspect, it gets fabulous sun during the first part of the day. The driveway has off-street parking for a couple of cars. There’s an informal first-come, first-serve arrangement, and the surrounding roads are unrestricted, so parking is generally not an issue.

Tenure-wise, the flat has a long lease of 113 years and as the owner of this flat you would also be a director of the management company, which was set up to run the building, the directors meet up periodically to decide on necessary works, and everyone has an equal voting right, giving you some control over the running and costs of the building. There is no service charge, the aforementioned directors choose what needs doing & when and the ground rent is only £200PA.

Location-wise, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more convenient spot. At the top of Belvedere Road (160 yards away!!!) is our much-loved “Triangle,” where you can find the best gastropubs, coffee shops, vintage furniture and clothes shops. There are notable art galleries, an Everyman cinema, and, of course, the much-loved Haynes Lane food market, which is a must-visit on a Saturday for the best fresh produce. You wouldn’t ever need to leave the Triangle; it has everything, and thankfully, it’s largely independent!

Crystal Palace Station is 0.4 mi away, or an eight-minute walk (according to Google Maps), providing direct trains to London Bridge, Victoria, and the overland takes you to Shoreditch and beyond.

The same distance away on Anerley Road, you have 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. Near 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, and then there’s a more recent and very welcome addition to the neighbourhood in the Crystal Palace Wine Club, an intimate but quality wine bar owned and run by locals.

Crystal Palace Park is just next to the station and offers 200 acres of listed parkland. It is host to many music and cultural events throughout the year and is loved for its boating lake, concert bowl, national sports centre, and, of course, its Dinosaurs! It is also host to a food market on Sundays, although it has more of a street food scene, and Haynes Lane is where you would source your artisan ingredients and cheeses.
