First let’s start with some of the basic history of this renowned Art Deco building.

When built in the 1930’s some of the flats comprised two apartments, a large one for the main occupier and a smaller one for the servant. The flats were advertised with the tag "the servant problem solved". There was also a restaurant, lounge and "guest rooms", as well as seven tennis courts (the former Queens tennis club), a swimming pool and a putting green.

Anyone buying in this building is securing a very affluent and iconic piece of SE23 history.

This studio flat is located on the ground floor of the building.

In the building you experience the original style 1930's lift with Art Deco door and pull across gate which is a lovely feeling. Within the grounds of the development there are allotments which the current owner has use of and future buyers may also be able to benefit from this rare feature.

The first thing to note on entering the flat is that all the windows are south westerly facing allowing beams of light to enter the room (as seen in the images). The Art Deco windows, which are a great feature of the living areas add character and charm that studios rarely offer in this area.

Areas of the studio have been upgraded to offer a striking modernised interior. Thoughtful use of the space accommodates some features you’d rarely find in studio. One such feature is the dining area in the separate kitchen. A cleverly designed dining table with bench seating using the window as the centre piece make this area particularly attractive area for a studio flat. However, what you can’t see in the images is that ingenious space coverts into a sleeping area! The dining table folds away the bench seating is adjusted to become a bed. What a resourceful and clever feature for any property.

The kitchen being a separate room in a studio (rather than open plan) is a great feature however the kitchen also having its own feature window (commonly kitchens don’t have windows) is another fantastic and desirable point.

The bathroom has its own feature window as well. You will see in the images the window dominates one wall of this unexpectedly sized bathroom. Many houses have bathrooms this size let alone a studio flat. The bathroom will please most buyers who have been looking at flats not least to mention having the feature window sets the stage for current day interior design trends.

The property is located approximately 0.2 miles from the town centre. An array of shops including a Sainsburys supermarket, trendy cafes, restaurants and transport links are all in immediate proximity yet, you're tucked away at the top of a hill which feels like it could be a million miles away from it all.
