PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

A charming ground floor 2 double bedroom GARDEN flat in the heart of Honor Oak Park. The flat occupies the whole of the ground floor of this stunning red brick Victorian semi-detached house. The property is extremely well presented throughout, offering well laid out accommodation, plenty of character, air conditioning, and a spectacular 85 ft WEST facing private rear garden that has been beautifully landscaped with an array of evergreen tropical plants.

The property offers well-proportioned living accommodation with 779 sq ft (72.4 sqm) of floor space, practically laid out with the bedrooms at the front of the property and the bathroom, kitchen and lounge to the rear with the additional benefit of a workshop in the side return.

Entrance to the flat is on the ground floor through a well maintained communal hallway. Upon entry there are two large double bedrooms, both are fairly equal in size with high ceilings. The bigger of the two is at the front and has a large original sash bay window that illuminates the room with natural light. The room is tastefully decorated with carpeted flooring and benefits from a built in wardrobes as well as an air conditioner.

The double bedroom adjacent also has carpeted flooring with more fitted wardrobes offering plenty of storage as well as another air conditioner. This room benefits from direct access to the garden via double glazed French doors.
The long hallway is laid with solid wood flooring and the property also benefits from having a small cellar which is useful for storage, and which is accessed via the hallway cupboard.

In the middle of the property servicing all areas of the property is the bathroom which is clad floor to ceiling in luxurious Travertine tiles. There is a bath with a shower above and glass screen, a wash hand basin with vanity unit below, a toilet that sits under a window that allows for natural light and ventilation, an extractor fan, and a heated towel rail for additional creature comfort.

The cosy lounge is located at the rear of the property, it has an original sash bay window that fills the room with natural light and offers lovely views over the garden. The room has been stylishly decorated with calming hues and has solid wood flooring.

The contemporary fitted kitchen has plenty of wall and base mounted units on either side of the room, with a wood effect worktops above housing the sink on one side and hob with oven below and extractor above on the other. There is a tiled splashback above the worktop, integrated appliances and solid wood flooring. A double glazed patio door leads out to a large side return patio that gives access to the garden and the workshop.

The garden is WEST facing which catches the afternoon/evening sun and it’s certainly the star of the show! The huge patio area hugs the rear of the property and wraps around the rear and side return, offering plenty of space for entertaining in the warmer months. The workshop studio has been cleverly created to enclose the side return with access from both sides allowing access from front to back. This offers additional security, privacy and a great space to work and store goods. For those with an appetite for a project, this whole area could be extended into to expand the footprint of the property, there is a precedent for side return extension on this side of the street but would require the necessary planning consents.

Beyond the patio is the main garden area which has been meticulously cultivated to create a tropical oasis by the current owners. Surprisingly the garden is very hardy and fairly low maintenance thanks to a careful selection of plants. There is a winding gravel pathway that spirals through the dense forest of plants that leads to a central decked area where there is a pond and at the far end of the garden is a vegetable plot. One could literally get lost in here for hours, or perhaps never be seen again.

The flat is within close proximity to both Honor Oak Park Station (London Bridge and Overground) and Crofton Park Station (Blackfriars and St Pancras). A range of amenities can be found locally including great shops, bars, cafe's and restaurants as well as green open spaces such as Blythe Hill fields, One Tree Hill and Horniman gardens. There are also some great primary schools close by such as Stillness School and Dalmain primary.
