We very proudly achieved a huge £45,000 over asking price (107% of asking price) and thus a record price for one of these 3-bed homes was set, (we had set a record for a 2 bed on this development already!) To add to that we completed within 5 weeks of going under offer. What is truly remarkable is another agent sold the house next door (which was identical) for only £525,000
A beautiful three-bedroom end of terrace home located in the middle of the Crystal Palace Triangle, finished to a high standard and with a peaceful & low maintenance south facing garden. Super convenient for the Triangle, Crystal Palace Park, Crystal Palace station and Gypsy Hill station. Offered to the market with no onward chain.
Ovett Close is located right in the middle of the Triangle, in the Upper Norwood conservation area, it forms part of a mainly pedestrianised development originally built by Barratt Homes in the 1980’s. Built with practicality in mind, the space, residents parking and of course brilliant location of the development make these wonderful houses incredibly popular with buyers and they rarely come to the market.
This particular home boasts a larger garden than most within the development and has a bit more width than other houses too, allowing for a downstairs cloakroom and three bedrooms, whereas some only have two bedrooms and no WC downstairs. It’s been loved and cared for over the years it’s been occupied by the current owners, with no expense spared in its upkeep and improvement.
The ground floor has a lovely flow to it, with a large reception offering generous space, enough for a large dining table and comfortable living space too, there’s a useful nook that could be a reading or desk area and there’s also masses of storage in the under-stair cupboard. At the rear of the reception there’s French doors leading to that stunning south facing garden, the kitchen also comes off this space, making for a social arrangement when entertaining and cooking.
The kitchen is finished really well, with contrasting grey and white units, all the appliances are integrated and there’s a large range cooker that will make you the envy of all your guests, with 5 gas rings and dual ovens you’ll have no excuse not to have everyone over for dinner, Christmas dinners especially will be a breeze! The floor is nicely tiled and the walls are too where needed, we are big fans of the stable door leading into the garden, which is a nice touch rarely seen in London homes.
The downstairs cloakroom is in the hall by the entrance, a real must for many families and a real bonus in a house like this one, where you will likely entertain a lot in that lovely garden. Moving up from the entrance hall to the first floor you have a staircase lined in brand new jute herringbone carpet, which leads to a bright landing with an east facing window, made possible by the house being an end of terrace.
Off the landing are three bedrooms, two of which are double rooms, the third being a single. The master has large integrated wardrobes with sliding doors, the single room also has some integrated storage and the second double bedroom has space for a free standing wardrobe (the current one can be left if desired) or a bespoke unit would go perfectly in that space.
The bathroom is a really lovely space, it has a shower over a full-size bath, fully tiled walls and floor and a heated towel rail which can run of electricity in the summer or the gas powered heating in the winter. The sanitary ware is quality and just works really well with the overall décor of the house, there’s also a nifty rotating mirrored storage unit in the corner.
The garden will be a real draw for many, it is without doubt larger than most of the neighbours gardens and is incredibly low maintenance. It has a very fortunate south facing aspect, but will also get the late afternoon / evening sun from the west too. There’s a useful part of the garden that wraps around the side of the house, great for storing items that you may not use all year round, the BBQ, hoses, bicycles etc.
The estate has landscaped communal areas which are well cared for by the management company which is run by many of the residents, they ensure the maintenance of the private estate and they also maintain the parking bays of which residents are free to use on a first come first serve basis.
Location wise the house sits literally in the middle of the Triangle, surrounded by Westow Street, Westow Hill & Church Road which form Crystal Palace’s celebrated “Triangle” you are spoilt for choice with restaurants, pubs, brilliant eateries, there’s an Everyman Cinema literally across the road, yoga schools, and the list goes on! There is also a Sainsbury’s supermarket 0.1mi away 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 within moments of the house and the choice of coffee shops is just dazzling.
Both Gipsy Hill & Crystal Palace Stations are just half a mile away, giving access to London Bridge & Victoria as well as the city, Shoreditch and East London. Crystal Palace Park is also on your doorstep, 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.
