Another successful sale on Blandford Road. This one bought up some damp issues which were unbeknown to us all and resulted in a slight adjustment in the price by £4000. Nonetheless, it remains a strong result for the market at the time (Oct 2022) which for one-bedroom flats and first-time buyers was woeful (thanks again, LIZ!)
This beautifully presented one bedroom period garden maisonette oozes style, class, has a great layout and is generously proportioned. The flat has a modern kitchen and bathroom, direct access to a private garden and a share of freehold, all of which makes this a confidence inspiring purchase.
Located moments from Avenue Road tram stop, which is only two stops away from Beckenham Junction station, opening up multiple transport links including London Victoria & London Bridge. It also gives easy access to Beckenham High St too with it’s rich variety of cafes, bars, pubs & restaurants! Kent House & Clock House stations are very close by, as is Birkbeck.
You enter the flat through it’s own front door, which is a huge bonus for a flat, and are greeted by wooden floors and a warm on-trend interior. The reception is at the front of the building and benefits from a gloriously bright southern aspect, there’s a lovely period fireplace and built in shelves. Moving into the middle of this wonderful home is the bedroom which has high ceilings and nice décor, there’s carpet on the floor and a nice view over the garden from the window.
The kitchen is to the rear, which is also finished beautifully, there’s space for a dining table and it leads to the garden via French doors. There’s integrated appliances, masses of storage, and quality wooden worktops. The bathroom features a shower over a full size bath, with partially tiled walls and a storage cupboard, making this space very functional too.
The garden gets the western sun in the afternoon & evening but still gets the southern sun in the early part of the day, there’s a patio immediately off the flat, and a lovely lawn section to the rear.
The flat has a share of freehold and as such there are no service charges or ground rent, the annual contribution to buildings insurance is circa £580 PA.
Location wise the flat is nearby multiple transport links, with Avenue Road tram stop being the nearest which is a mere 0.2mi away, this is only two stops from Beckenham Junction where there are a multitude of options including a fast link to Victoria and also London Bridge. Kent House & Clock House stations are also approx. half a mile away.
For those who might put down roots in the local area it’s worth noting that Balgowan Primary School is nearby and accessible as is Stuart Fleming (rated Outstanding) and Churchfields is moments away too.
Nearby at Elmers End there is a large Tesco supermarket, and more locally just passed Birkbeck station there is a post office, a co-op, a couple of cafes catering to all tastes, a barbers, gym and other amenities too.
