City Walk Apartments is a development less than 10 years old from one of the most prestigious developers in London, Berkeley Homes.
Known for their high end central London developments (such as One Blackfriars which you can view here - https://www.berkeleygroup.co.uk/developments/london/southwark/one-blackfriars) Berkeley Homes are established as one of the top new home builders.
The property itself offers several standout features. These include:
• Two private terraces / balconies (one at either end of the property. The first off the lounge and the second off both bedrooms). The balcony at the rear offers far reaching views and isn’t overlooked offering quiet and privacy.
• The windows / doors in the bedrooms and lounge are floor to ceiling filling the rooms with natural light. You will see these clearly in the images of the property.
• The location is in Forest Hill town centre. It’s one of the closest developments for transport, shopping, social life and recreation making it a perfect option for first time buyers.
The floor space is approximately 675 st ft which provides two double bedrooms. Often, we find the second bedroom is not quite a double however this second bedroom spans over 17 ft in length and gives access to the balcony.
Buyers might also notice the bathroom is larger than expected and the open plan area is over 18ft by over 17ft making the proportions of this property very good in comparison to many others around this price.
Unusually there are two private balconies / terraces that come with the property. The first is over 12ft at the front of the property and the second is over 18ft at the rear of the property. Having two private outside spaces is an unusual feature and a great asset of this flat.
With additional benefits including a lift in the block, built in oven, built in storage and a clever addition by the current owners of a movable breakfast bar (not fixed to the floor and can easily be repositioned or removed), we advise buyers to view our 360 degree images of each room to get a better sense of what’s on offer as the pictures only communicate some of the great features.
