Property Summary

A large, bright and airy apartment with a delightful balcony garden within a half-hour train journey from central London and located within easy reach of local amenities.

Equipped with a modern kitchen and bathroom, only personal touches are required to make this beautifully maintained and tastefully decorated property a comfortable and well-appointed home.

Longlands Road is located approximately a kilometre north of the town centre but close to the town’s railway station, from where services run regularly to Dartford, Gravesend, Cannon Street in London and Charing Cross – usually reaching the latter in under half an hour. There are bus services too from nearby Station Road, connecting to Sidcup High Street, Thamesmead, Greenwich, Bexleyheath, Woolwich and Eltham as well as Orpington, Swanley and Queen Mary’s Hospital. Other nearby amenities include a doctors’ surgery and pharmacy, a dry cleaner’s, a Tesco Express convenience store, a good selection of restaurants and takeaways and The Alma pub, which boasts a beer garden and serves a small selection of real ales. The proximity of the A20 Sidcup bypass makes access to the M25 and the M20 to the south coast relatively simple by car while, for those travelling further afield, Gatwick Airport is within an hour’s drive.

The property is located within a block of apartments surrounded by neat communal gardens, including lawns, mature trees and shrubs. However, one of the apartment’s best features is a delightful and spacious first-floor balcony garden along one entire side of the property. Overlooking the street below, the area includes decking and gravel beds with some screening and shade offered by the mature trees. The apartment also benefits from undercover off road parking for one vehicle and an additional storage cupboard which is separate to the property.

The front door opens onto a reception hall with a door to the bathroom, a store cupboard and the double bedroom to the left. A corridor continues around to the right where additional internal doors open onto the kitchen and the lounge.

Decorated in a pastel blue and white, the spacious lounge is bright and airy with plenty of light flooding the room from the door and windows overlooking the balcony. The room has space for a three-piece suite and dining table and chairs.

The galley-style kitchen is fitted with soft-closing, under-lit cupboard and drawer units fitted above and below grey worktops, contrasting with black ceramic splashback tiles with mosaic accents fitted above all the cooking and preparation areas. The design incorporates an electric oven and three-ring induction hob beneath a concealed extractor as well as an integral, eye-level microwave oven while there is a dedicated space for an upright fridge/freezer. There is plumbing and space for a washer/drier while a stainless steel sink with chrome mixer tap is located below a picture window overlooking the private balcony.

The bedroom includes carpets and an integral double wardrobe and has a feature wall decorated in an under-stated flower pattern. A three-quarter-length, double-paned window – one opaque and the other clear – overlooks the private balcony.

The bathroom is fitted with a slate-tile floor and incorporates a white panel bath with separate hot and cold taps, a shower above and a hinged, glass splash-screen. A pedestal sink with a chrome mixer tap is located beneath a mirrored cabinet while a glass-and-chrome shelf is located above the dual-flush WC. The partially-tiled walls include mosaic-style accents similar to those found in the kitchen.

The property is double-glazed with warmth in winter provided by electric storage heaters with automatic charge control. Low-energy lighting in all fixed points helps to ensure the apartment benefits from a higher-than-average B rating on its EPC.
