These flats are just incredible value and situated right opposite Crystal Palace Station & Park. Our vendor's onward purchase was beyond tricky, but our openness and relationship with our buyers kept the sale together, owing to the chain the sale took 7 months to complete, their enduring patience was a product of our relationship and candour.
A smart one-bedroom ground floor flat with outside space, plenty of storage and a useful study space to WFH, all located opposite Crystal Palace Park and Station, with a long lease and low service charges.
Situated on the ground floor of a well-kept and secure modern block, the flat has generous space that is really well presented, it’s super convenient for the Park and is located opposite the station with a plethora of shops, cafes and amenities on its doorstep. It’s also a short walk to Crystal Palace’s much loved Triangle too.
The living space is arranged well, with a generously sized reception that has large floor-to-ceiling windows looking over the outside space, with a door leading onto the patio, beyond which is a well-kept garden. There are quality wooden floors and neutral décor and with the southeast-facing aspect the living space feels bright and airy.
The kitchen has been recently installed and is at the rear of the flat; laid out in a horseshoe configuration that offers masses of worktop and storage space. There’s a gas hob which is all-important for those that like to cook, an integrated oven and freestanding appliances, the colourway works so well with the flooring, worktops and tiled splashbacks, it really is finished beautifully.
The bathroom is clean and modern, with a shower over a full-sized bath. Three of the walls are nicely tiled and the sanitaryware is also modern and clean. There’s also a window which is important for ventilation and light, and the flooring matches that in the kitchen, which is a nice touch.
The bedroom is also a generously sized room, adjacent to the reception room; it shares the same bright southeast aspect, making it especially bright in the morning and early afternoon. It features large fitted wardrobes and plenty of space for a large bed (think super-king if you wanted it!) and also freestanding storage.
Speaking of storage, there are two further useful storage cupboards and a third area that could be used as a massive storage cupboard, but also works really well as a study area. It’s got volume as well due to the height of it, so it can incorporate storage as well as being a study space.
The flat is currently undergoing a lease extension and will be sold with a brand new long lease of 125 years. There will be no ground rent and a service charge of approx. £650 per annum.
Location-wise the flat really is in a prime spot, situated directly opposite both the station and the park! Trains from Crystal Palace Station go directly to London Victoria, and also London Bridge via Forest Hill. There’s also access to Beckenham Junction, Brockley, Shoreditch, Hoxton, Dalston and Highbury & Islington too.
As well as being well connected for transport, there are also a few very cool spots right on your doorstep. Some of our favourites include Crespidia coffee, the newly opened Crystal Palace Wine Club, the Paxton Arts Centre, everyone’s favourite Café Chic (which does the best wraps, amongst other Persian delicacies!), and the infamous Chatsworth Bakehouse (be prepared to queue). There’s also the useful mainstream stuff, such as a Tesco Express and post office, which are mere seconds away too.
The Triangle is 0.3miles away (short walk uphill) and gives you a delicious selection of gastropubs, coffee shops, cafes and restaurants. There’s an Everyman cinema, yoga school, large Sainsburys and a million other brilliant shops, which are mostly independent. There’s also the fabulous Haynes Lane Farmers Market, which is open every Saturday, which will likely become your beautiful Saturday morning ritual!
