Located on the ground floor within a grand period building, the flat offers DIRECT ACCESS TO A PRIVATE SOUTHERLY FACING WRAP AROUND PATIO VIA DOUBLE DOORS IN THE LOUNGE as well as the large shared garden (please see images of garden as it’s a substantial area).
The lounge is a particularly attractive room in this property, as not only does it have the glazed doors opening onto the private patio but either side of the doors are fanlights which further connect the outside to the living space. The doors and fanlights are a striking feature of this room however there is also a large window along another wall which combines wonderfully with the southerly facing patio doors to fill the living space with natural light. You will note the beams of sunlight coming from both the patio doors and the side window in the images.
The property is located approximately 0.4 mile to Forest Hill station (the owners advise us it takes them approximately 7 minutes to walk to Forest Hill station).
The property offers approx. 500 sq ft of living space and the building is set back from the road allowing off street parking for several cars to the front one of which is allocated to this flat.
The communal hallways which have stunning period features (as seen in the image) were redecorated in January 2018 which included new carpets on the hall stairs and landings.
