Two potential Bakerloo tube stations have been planned for Old Kent. One is approximately 0.8 mile from this property and the other is just over a mile away.
Taken from the Transport for London website:
“The preferred location for the first station along Old Kent Road was near the junction of Old Kent Road with Dunton Road, as it is close to existing transport links and could have less impact on existing local residents during construction.”
“The preferred location for the second station along Old Kent Road was near the junction of Asylum Road with Old Kent Road, as it was felt that a station here would provide better distancing between stations.”
With approaching 1000 square feet of living space and being located so close to the highly acclaimed (and substantially re-generated in recent years) Burgess Park, this three-bedroom SPLIT LEVEL property flat should be seen by all first-time buyers and investors looking in the local area.
BAKERLOO LINE - TUBE EXTENSION
One of the proposed locations for the new station is approximately 0.5 miles away from this property. Should this tube extension be approved, we expect the immediate area to substantially increase in value.
We advise all prospective buyers to look into the plans for the tube extension, so they can see just how far progressed the plans are.
In our view, this makes the property very attractive to both first time buyers and investors alike.
Offered for sale in such a promising location (which is already desirable) this flat offers great long-term potential.
The current owners have very much enjoyed living at the property with its convenience to local transport facilities, shops and local parks however they are now looking to down size.
For those buyers seeking a property in the catchment area of several highly rated schools, we have looked online and found several OFSTED rated “Outstanding” schools and several OFSTED rated “Good” schools in the local area. We are always surprised to see so many highly rated schools in one area around SE15 and to add more desirability, a number of those schools are also rated in OFSTED’S top 10%!
