We take great pleasure in marketing this ground floor SHARE OF FREEHOLD, two DOUBLE bedrooms, period flat in Forest Hill which also has its own private wrap around FRONT garden as well as PRIVATE SOUTHERLY FACING REAR GARDEN with side gate, high ceilings, bathroom with four piece suite, lounge with two bay windows from different aspects, bedroom which also has two windows from different aspects, bedroom with bay window, garden shed, built in storage and offers over 875 sq ft of living space.
You will note from the floor plans that the property is double fronted in style with the entrance door being in the middle of the building and rooms either side of the entrance hall. We believe this make the building feel very grand given double fronted buildings are some of the most desirable locally.
The property feels almost detached as you’ll note from the floor plan that there are no adjoining properties on three sides. This also means that there are many windows throughout the property allowing natural light to fill the rooms.
The building consists of two flats and each flat owns a share of the freehold. There are no regular maintenance charges given both the flats own the freehold. Any work required to maintain the building can be agreed on an as and when basis due to this arrangement and is in complete control of both the owners (no management company to deal with).
Kilmorie and Rathfern schools which are both OFSTED rated "Outstanding" and independent St Dunstons College (3 - 18 years of age) are three out of several very well-regarded OFSTED rated schools locally.
Many buyers who don’t have the budget to buy a house locally in proximity of these highly acclaimed schools will consider a property of this nature as a brilliant option.
