Located on Sunderland Road, a wide, premium, treelined road in Forest Hill. Sunderland Road is well known for many of it’s large period style properties (many in excess of £1m), being in a good position to access the town centre and a quiet residential location.
This flat therefore offers an opportunity for the buyer to purchase in an affluent local market at an affordable price.
This property is offered with a GARAGE ON SITE with heavy duty storage shelves that the sellers will happily leave (Hunters have rented a garage locally for £150 pcm in the past which is useful information for any buyers who are considering drawing an income from the garage), on street parking with no permits required, is in proximity to the town centre and highly acclaimed open green spaces such as the Horniman Museum and gardens which has featured in Time Out and other popular London guides.
Other parks such as Mayow Park and Blythe Hill fields are also in proximity of the property and offer further choice for recreational activities locally as well as regular events such as The Blythe Hill fields yearly community festival.
Having your own garage is a rare feature for flats. This alone makes the property stand out in the market place of one-bedroom flats available. However, when combined with the internal finish offered, we believe buyers will consider this a great opportunity whether seeking a first-time purchase or long-term investment.
Internally the property offers over 500 sq ft of living space which in our experience is larger than many one-bedroom flats locally.
The living room spans almost 17ft offering enough space for a dedicated dining space (as seen in the images) which is uncommon for one-bedroom flats.
We especially like the two feature windows in the lounge which are almost floor to ceiling in height and act as walls of glass, flooding this room with natural light.
You will also notice that storage is not lacking either. The bedroom has its own fitted wardrobe and there is enough space to add additional free-standing furniture, whilst the entrance hall has two storage cupboards (one which also houses the water tank).
The kitchen is a very practical “U” shape allowing for many wall and base storage units. A window in the kitchen allows natural light into the room (however there is also feature under cabinet lighting) and offers a view onto the communal gardens below which is lovely and green. The seller advises us they often hear the birds tweeting in the tree outside their bedroom window which also looks on the gardens.
The bathroom is very on trend with floor to ceiling tiles and a very practical layout of the sanitaryware. The bathroom also has a large opaque window which again allows natural light into the room but is also great for air exchange.
The seller has advised us there is a great sense of community in the building, as most occupants have been resident a long time.
The seller also advises the running costs of the property are attractive as they pay £12 per month for water and £35 for electricity. The owners advise us they had new radiators installed approximately 2 years ago with a temperature control allowing you to independently regulate the temperature in the living room.
The owners inform us they especially like when the sunlight enters the living room in the morning as they enjoy their breakfast at the dining table. The sun hits the garden in the afternoon/evening which is nice when they are eating or having a glass of wine.
The property's location, in our opinion, is superior to many other flats in SE23. In our experience, rarely do we find a property located so conveniently for transport (with a bus stop near the end of the road), shopping, recreational facilities and schools.
