Another of our effective open days worked its magic in early January 2023, 14 viewings and 5 offers isn't bad going by anyone's standards! Rather amusingly for our client, the previous agent she'd instructed advertised it as sold in their shop window after we sold it....
A well-proportioned first floor two double bedroom flat in a pretty building in a very desirable location. Offered in fantastic condition this turn-key home has a share of freehold, off-street parking (on a first-come-first-serve basis) and a modern, clean interior that’s ready for its new owner to move straight into!
Situated on the first floor of a handsome detached period building the flat offers great space that is well distributed across the whole flat; each room feels spacious and well laid out. The reception is at the front of the building, overlooking leafy Palace Road; it has a pretty bay window which benefits from a southern aspect making for an incredibly bright space and one that would be a joy to work from, chill out in, and also entertain from. Notably, the windows have been replaced with high-quality double-glazed sash windows that retain the period look but offer high levels of insulation.
The bedrooms are to the rear of the flat, both are doubles in size, they have high ceilings, the same sash windows found in the living room and both have space for large wardrobes/storage, the master bedroom has the perfect space for a large built-in wardrobe if desired especially given the ceiling height.
The kitchen is galley style with a shaker feel to it, it’s nicely finished and has plentiful worktop space and storage, the open shelves help the sense of space and it's practical too - there’s room for a dishwasher, washing machine, and a full-size fridge freezer. Moving up the hall is the bathroom, which is in great condition and modern, it has a shower over a full-size bath with tiled surrounds and modern sanitaryware and fittings.
The flat also has use of the communal garden, which is impressive in size, it’s mainly lawn with some borders and some pretty trees, the garden would get the southern sun from late morning/early afternoon as the buildings are not very tall and sun into the late afternoon/evening from the west.
The flat has…
A share of freehold. A service charge of £1349 PA. This covers the cost of… • employing a managing agent, • a gardener, • buildings insurance, • fire safety equipment, • an allowance for general repairs.
Location wise the flat is 0.3ml from Tulse Hill Station, which is a useful hub with direct access to London Bridge, but also East Croydon which is great for access to Gatwick Airport.
