London Road, Forest Hill, SE23

Guide Price


Guide Price £500,000 to £550,000.

A unique and beautifully presented two bedroom garden flat offering over 70sqm of living space, nestled on London Road and a stones throw from Forest Hill BR and Overground services. The flat is also located within the conservation area of Forest Hill.

Accessed via security gates, the flat has its own front door and accessed via a courtyard area.

Through the Victorian composite front door and you're into a generously sized open plan kitchen and living room with beautiful wood-style flooring and a feature fireplace. The kitchen has the popular Butler's sink, integrated dishwasher and washing machine with the classic Metro tile splash back and solid wood worktop -there's a definite hint of Victorian themed styling throughout the flat.

The living room leads to the glass extension dining room which offers wide sliding glass doors to the courtyard, ideal for summertime al-fresco dining.

Walk through the living room and there's an exceptionally spacious hall, currently used as an office space. You could easily reconfigure this space into an office, third bedroom or walk-in wardrobe.

Off the hall is the stunning Victorian style bathroom complete with a 'claw foot' roll top bath with overhead thermostatic rainfall shower, concealed bathroom taps, porcelain mosaic floor and traditional towel heater radiator. The property boasts two bedrooms, both with box sash windows and the dark wood-style flooring. The master is even big enough to fit a super king-sized bed!

The master bedroom leads to the private garden with beautiful grey decking and grassed area. This veritable 'sun trap' is surprisingly quiet and free from traffic noise. There's also the added benefit of secure gated parking for a car.

There's plenty to do at the weekend if you fancy a drink or a meal in Forest Hill Town Centre or Honor Oak. For even more options Crystal Palace or East Dulwich are a bus, train or short cab ride away. You're approximately 5 minutes walk to the wonderful green spaces of the popular Hornimans Museum and Gardens.

Direct services to London Bridge within 15 minutes, and the Overground Service means you can easily get to Highbury & Islington or onto the Jubilee Line at Canada Water where it's a quick one stop change for Canary Wharf.

There are a multitude of bus routes into South London, Croydon areas and Central London.

There are no service charges or ground rent to pay and the owners are in the process of purchasing the freehold (along with the other leaseholders in the building). The current lease term of 91 years will be extended at the same time.

The current owners told us:

"We have lived and loved this flat for more than 16 years and have seen Forest Hill grow and flourish over this time. Our favourite thing about our home is the outside garden, especially in the Summer. It's a true sun trap and love the warm summer nights out there having a quiet drink or a BBQ with friends. We also love the fact that we can pop across to Sainsburys if we're missing something, jump on the train to the city or walk our dog at the famous Dulwich Park".

Chain Free Sale.

No service charges or ground rent.

Option to acquire a share of the freehold with an extended lease (currently 91 years).
