A well-presented two-bedroom flat on the ground floor of a very well-run building, moments away from Gipsy Hill Station (0.2 mi), and in easy reach of Crystal Palace Triangle with a share of freehold (and a long lease in excess of 900 years) as well as a southeast facing communal garden.
An ideal first-time purchase, this flat certainly ticks the boxes when it comes to location, being perfectly positioned for any potential commute from Gipsy Hill Station as well as brunches, lunches and nights out on Crystal Palace Triangle!
The flat is on the ground floor of the smaller of the two buildings that make up Compton Court; the other, larger building, is found over the road. They have a 1930s mansion block style about them and are incredibly well-kept, with the residents having an active participation in the running of the development.
Offered in fab condition and with lovely leafy views from all the windows, it sits on a rather fortunate axis with the back being more southern facing and the front being more western, bathing the living room in afternoon/evening sun. Notably, all the windows are quality double-glazed windows recently replaced by the current owner, as was the boiler.
Accommodation-wise, the living room is a charming room with a shallow bay window, allowing for a dining table. There are hardwood floors which run throughout the flat and bespoke storage built into the alcoves, which look lovely and are very practical for storage too.
The kitchen is modern and contemporary and has that southern aspect, making it lovely and bright at the beginning of the day. The current owner’s fridge does dominate the space slightly, but it is freestanding and the ability to replace this with an under-counter fridge is an option, freeing up space. There’s a gas hob and plenty of storage space ideal for the enthusiastic cook!
Both the bedrooms are doubles, and both can accommodate double beds, wardrobes and drawers; they’re incredibly similar in dimensions, and both have the same hardwood flooring found in the rest of the flat and the same quality double-glazed windows too.
The bathroom has a large walk-in rain shower and is finished really well with fully tiled walls and a tiled floor. The quality of the fittings and overall presentation is fantastic and its clear the bathroom was a real investment by the current owner.
The block has a communal garden, which is maintained by a gardener, it’s very private and feels very secluded, unlike other gardens on the road which are overlooked by their neighbours. The garden is southeast facing so get great light late morning to early afternoon, and for those that might fancy an afternoon drink in the sun, there is a small front garden in which to place a bench and enjoy the western aspect!
Location-wise, the flat is 0.2mi from Gipsy Hill station, which is a 4-minute walk according to google maps, giving access to London Bridge & Victoria as well as the city, Shoreditch and East London.
The flat is in a very prominent location for the Triangle, where you are spoilt for choice with restaurants, pubs, brilliant eateries, there’s an Everyman Cinema, yoga schools, and the list goes on! There is also a Sainsbury’s supermarket 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.
Brunch, dinner and cocktails are all catered for on The Trianlge and the choice of coffee shops is just dazzling. The nearest pub is the Great Southern, just next to Gipsy Hill Station, which is highly regarded. Crystal Palace Park is also within very easy reach, which offers 200 acres of grade 2 listed grounds to enjoy, it also houses the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre with its Olympic swimming pool, a gym, squash courts and a few activities you wouldn’t find at your average gym including trampolining, beach volleyball and an on-site physio.
