Are you seeking a trendy lifestyle apartment combined with period character?

An apartment that offers modern day trend but also the charisma of a 1950s’ hotel?

The current owners have embraced and brought back to life the endearing features of this second floor apartment whilst adding some great modern finishes.

Examples of this can be seen throughout the apartment and include but are certainly not limited to:

Pipework and radiators, including the radiator controls reinstated visually as a feature.
Floor tiles exposed and reinstated which blend fluidly with current day décor.

With its well-tended communal gardens leading to the renowned Sydenham Hill Woods (approximately 9 hectares which we understand is a designated local nature reserve), the Horniman Museum and a playpark within the immediate surrounding area, this three double bedroom apartment located on Sydenham Hill in a 1950s’ style apartment block offers something rare and delightful.

Looked after by a team of gardeners and a full time caretaker, the communal gardens are host to many varied birds and wild flowers – owls, nuthatches, blue bells, violets, Herb Robert and lady's smock to name a few. The current owners of this apartment enjoy listening and looking out at the variety of birds in the trees.

The living room has views out through the balcony as well as space for a dining area. With three double bedrooms and in our opinion a larger than average hallway, this apartment offers approximately 850 sq ft of living space.

On each floor of the building you will find only two apartments which adds to the privacy and appeal of the building.
A well serviced lift offers easy access, great for children’s buggies etc.

The property is also in the catchment area of Ofsted rated "Outstanding" primary and secondary schools which is great news for those considering a family home in the area.

Forest Hill train station, served by the Overground and Southern Rail and offers the following approximate travel times to central London stations:

London Bridge in approximately 17 minutes.

Shoreditch High Street in approximately 22 minutes.

Victoria station in approximately 30 minutes.

The Horniman Museum and Gardens is a well-known local point of interest and can be found approximately 0.3 miles away. With regular events such as a farmers market, live music and seasonal festivals to name a few.

As well as having a Sainsbury’s, Forest Hill is well served with a variety of high quality independent shops, including a renowned traditional butcher. There are also gastro pubs, a gym, cafés, delis and restaurants to name but a few of its excellent amenities.

The Sylvan Post, a well known pub, Canvas and Cream and Stag and Bow all variously host, music events, exhibitions and craft days, and have brought to Forest Hill a cool and trendy vibe.

Off the high street you'll also find the excellent Forest Hill pools and library which has recently undergone a refurbishment.
And If you ever desire a further choice of drinking and eating establishments, then the vibrancy of Dulwich can be found a walk or bus ride away.
