An incredibly designed home, with a beautiful interior which was testament to our clients eye for design, although it was very compact and thus £415,000 was a super strong result and at £731 per square foot it beats the most expensive flat on the road which was sold for only £524 per square foot!
A gorgeously designed two-bedroom ground floor garden flat with a stunning interior and a beautiful (private) southeast facing garden on a very popular road in Penge, which is convenient for multiple transport links, including Kent House & Clock House.
Having been painstakingly and lovingly refurbished over the years by its current owners, this period garden flat is on one of Penge’s best roads, which is not only convenient for multiple transport links, but there’s a Tesco Express at one end of the road, and both Penge & Beckenham High Streets are also very close by too.
Occupying the whole ground floor, with the reception at the rear of the flat, which is a bright and well finished space that has French doors leading onto the private southeast facing garden, there’s a patio running around the side return (with a door from the kitchen), but the garden is mainly lawn with some really pretty borders, the south-eastern aspect makes for an incredibly bright space and floods the reception room with light too.
Slightly down the hall is a stunning bathroom, which has been finished incredibly well, there's a shower over a full-size bath with modern period-style fittings and a rain shower overhead. The tiled walls and sanitaryware just tie in so well and it really is a lovely place to be.
The kitchen is next along the hall, which is a masterclass on use of space, it accommodates everything you’d need and expect, and offers a stylish yet super practical space in which to cook. Like the rest of the flat its finished beautifully and ties into the interior of the flat well. There’s a tiled floor, wooden tops and all the appliances are integrated, including a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer and microwave! There’s also a tiled floor which complements the other colours in the kitchen and finishes the space off beautifully.
The master bedroom is a stunning room with plantation shutters, a lovely period fireplace, wooden floors (which run throughout the flat), period cornicing and nice neutral décor. The second bedroom is a good size second room, and like the rest of the flat it has really high ceilings and the same wood floors found elsewhere.
The flat has…
…a leasehold with circa 109 years left on lease … a service charge of £291.25 per quarter … a ground rent of £250 p/a … a sinking fund with a current balance of circa £7500.00 Its also council tax band C, currently £154 monthly for 10 months
Location wise the flat is 0.3mi from Kent House Station which has a direct and quick link into Victoria, Clock House station is half a mile away with a direct link to Charing Cross, and with a change at Lewisham you can get to Cannon St. Beckenham Road tram stop is 0.3mi away which gets to Beckenham Junction in seconds which opens up even more transport options and in the other direction Croydon and Gatwick airport can be easily accessed.
Penge High St is nearby, as is Beckenham High St, both offering an array of small privately owned restaurants, cafes and coffee shops, as well as bigger chains, there’s a spa, swimming and library all within a short stroll away. Crystal Palace Park is also nearby which offers 200 acres of lush green space.
