Offered with a SHARE OF THE FREEHOLD, this is a first floor, one bedroom flat in a grand Edwardian style residence with access to a SOUTHERLY FACING GARDEN.
The building has an ornate frontage including a porch with period style carpentry as well as an attractive period style main entrance door. You will note that the windows to the front of the building are all sash (in keeping with the period style of the building). The building looks fresh and well cared for which gives the property a lot of curb appeal.
The flat offers wonderful feature windows in the main living spaces. You will note in the images that the open plan lounge has two sash windows positioned side by side as does the bedroom. In addition, the windows in the lounge occupy a sizable square bay which makes a great space for a dedicated dining table (as you will see from the images the current owners have it set up this way).
Vancouver road is wide, tree lined, and no residence parking permits are required. It’s also well known locally for having many period style buildings of this nature whereas many other nearby roads offer smaller terraced buildings. Please do have a look on street view to get a better understanding of the surroundings.
The current owner has made some improvements such as fitting a new kitchen and upgrading the electrics. Decoration works have also taken place in the flat making it move in ready. This is an ideal opportunity for a first-time buyer or attractive opportunity for buyers who don’t want to do any work.
The property is in proximity of Forest Hill town centre and close enough to other local town centres to offer a wider choice of shopping, recreation and social activity. To name but a few of the local facilities:
