Some may argue its hard to achieve much in the way of a personal touch in a one-bedroom apartment – but this ground-floor flat in south London manages to punch above its weight when it comes to interior design.
The property, just a little to the west of the centre of Beckenham includes some lovely touches, which help to make the most of the space available and offer a relaxed and refined ambience throughout.
Entry to the property is through its own front door. The fully-carpeted double bedroom is fitted with floor-to-ceiling built-in wardrobes across one wall two with mirrored doors with a period radiator.
The carpeted living room includes a store cupboard, feature fireplace bracketed by in-built shelving units, and a full-length glass/UPVC door leading to the rear garden; an archway leads in turn to the modern, fitted kitchen with a tiled floor.
Grey, high-gloss kitchen wall and base units are complemented by another period radiator painted to match, with wooden worktops to three sides of the room incorporating a gas hob with extractor over, an electric oven and ceramic sink. White splash back tiles are fitted behind all work spaces with ample additional shelving. A door from the kitchen also leads into the rear garden while another opens onto the bathroom, fitted with a stand-alone tub with shower over, a sink and a separately screened WC.
The house currently enjoys a C rating for energy efficiency and includes double glazing, programmable gas-fired central heating, and thermostatic controls fitted to the radiators.
A small, paved courtyard garden and low wall divide the property for the road while the rear garden is part-paved, part laid-to-lawn.
The apartment is approx ten minutes from the overland stations at Clock House, Kent House and Birkbeck, with excellent links to London Victoria (20 mins), London bridge (20 mins) and Charing Cross (30 mins). Churchfields Recreation Ground and the South Norwood Country Park offer something of the great outdoors while other nearby amenities in Beckenham itself include a choice of supermarkets, banks, bars and restaurants, an Odeon cinema, medical centre and pharmacy.
In our opinion this is a property ideal for young professionals. Easy links to London make it an ideal base for commuting into the city while there are numerous social and recreational options within easy reach.
