VIEWING DAY SATURDAY 28TH MAY. GUIDE PRICE £500k - £525k. Occupying the whole of the ground floor of this end of terrace Victorian house on this quiet residential street, is this wonderful 2 double bedroom flat with a private SOUTH facing rear garden with side return access and double glazing throughout.

The property is located at the Brockley Rise end of Gabriel street, which is a no through road, meaning that there is hardly any passing traffic but is still conveniently accessible to the local amenities on foot.

The house has nice kerb appeal with an exposed red brick façade with detailed masonry around the windows and entrance porch. The house is set back from the street by a fenced front garden with a path leading to the Victorian front door.

Upon entry there is a hallway that runs along the length of the flat providing access to all rooms and some storage from an under stairs cupboard.

At the front of the flat is a lovely reception room that has plenty of period character and charm. The floors are the original exposed floorboards that have been stripped and varnished, there is a fireplace as a centre piece with built in shelving in the alcoves, high ceilings with cornicing and a large bay sash window that is furnished with plantation shutters.

Adjacent is the kitchen breakfast room, which is a good size, big enough for a table and chairs. It has high ceilings and plenty of wall and base mounted cupboards for storage, they utilising the ceiling height and wrap around both sides of the room. There are white tiled splash backs with laminate worktops housing the hob with oven below, extractor above and the sink. A patio door leads directly out to the garden via the side return.

The side return is clad in Indian sandstone and has plenty of width thanks to the property being the end of terrace, this area has potential for a side return extension subject to planning.
The garden is a sun trap thanks to its Southerly aspect, it has been beautifully landscaped by the current owners with a Sandstone patio closest to the house, perfect for al fresco dining, beyond this is a lawn surrounded by mature plants and shrubs. At the far end of the garden is large storage shed and workshop/office. The garden is surrounded by relatively new fence with concrete posts and a trellis above.

The bathroom has been nicely decorated with slate flooring, grey walls and white metro tiles around the bathtub which has a shower above. There is a frosted window for ventilation and natural light, a heated towel rail, a wash hand basin and toilet.

The two bedrooms are sat next to each other at the back of the flat making them both nice and peaceful. The smaller bedroom has carpeted floors, high level cupboards and a window looking out to the side return.
The main bedroom is a good size double, it too has carpeted floors and a window that looks directly out over the rear garden.

Gabriel Street is close to both Honor Oak Park station and Forest Hill where there are regular services to London Bridge (around 15mins) as well as London Overground services to Shoreditch and Highbury and Islington.
