Are you seeking a trendy apartment, in a sought-after location with three double bedrooms, well tendered communal grounds with direct access to woodlands and views towards the city? As rare as it sounds, this is such an apartment.
There are additional striking features of this apartment which we think buyers will find very attractive, they include:
A private, south facing balcony off the lounge which fills the living space with beams of sunlight through the double-glazed balcony doors (as can be seen in the images).
Approximately 812 sq ft of living space which is fluidly laid out off a central hallway.
Built in storage (including access to an external store cupboard).
Glass panelled, double doors opening onto the living room with views out through the balcony as well as space for a dining area.
Travertine style, natural stone tiles in the bathroom creating an expensive, spa like feel.
And a wide and welcoming entrance hall.
Caring for the development are the dedicated groundsman and caretaker who are on site several days a week maintaining the gardens and communal areas. These gardens are host to many varied birds and wild flowers – owls, nuthatches, blue bells, violets, Herb Robert and lady's smock to name a few. The current owners of this apartment enjoy listening and looking out at the variety of birds in the trees.
These communal gardens lead to the renowned Sydenham Hill Woods (approximately 9 hectares which we understand is a designated local nature reserve), the Horniman Museum and playpark are also in the immediate surrounding area.
On each floor of the building you will find only two apartments which adds to the privacy and appeal of the building.
A well serviced lift offers easy access, great for children’s buggies etc.
The property is also in the catchment area of OFSTED rated "Outstanding" primary and secondary schools which is great news for those considering a family home in the area.
