2 bedroom flat for saleSurrey Square, London, SE17
Sold STC £465,000
Full descriptionBeautifully refurbished throughout, this split-level, two bedroom apartment combines the best of light and airy contemporary, loft style living with the period charm of this elegant Victorian terrace. It’s rare to find a property of this style; built in lemon-coloured gault brick with some decorative detailing on the external front facade.
Cleverly, the open-plan living space is set up on the top floor of the property. You enter from the floor below to find quality wood style flooring, crisp white walls, a roomy understairs storage cupboard and sash windows in both double bedrooms with a pretty, cast iron fireplace in the front bedroom. Tiled in stone effect porcelain, the sleek bathroom has chrome fittings; sparkling white geometric sink and WC; and a large, glass-screened shower – it takes up the width of this room – that will put a spring in your step for the morning commute.
But it is the open-plan living space up on the next floor where this flat really delivers. The two Velux windows to the front, the rear-facing kitchen window and the bi-fold glass door to the balcony, means it is wonderfully light. The balcony features an attractive wooden cladding surround, stylish frosted glass balustrade and views of greenery and the Shard poking through the city skyline. It’s an ideal space for unwinding at the end of the day or entertaining friends. Chat to them while you cook in the kitchen area. Everything you need is brand new and already here: understated white wall and base units that hide the washing machine, dishwasher and tall fridge freezer. The oven, extractor fan and shiny black halogen hob are integrated too. Butchers block style worktops and white metro tiled splashback complete the contemporary look.
As for location, well, you will be part of the most exciting regeneration area in south London. A cool three billion is being poured into the transformation of Elephant & Castle and work is well underway to provide a newly pedestrianised town centre, new leisure centre, smart apartment blocks and plenty of green space. A short walk away is Burgess Park, which, at a mile long, is Southwark’s largest. Spend your weekends enjoying the outdoor gym, lake, café, community gardens, tennis courts, state-of-the-art playgrounds and BMX track, barbeque facilities and summer festivals. The colour and bustle of East Street market is a couple of streets away, as are all the amenities of Walworth Road. As for commuting, there are plenty of connections from the bus corridor at nearby Old Kent Road that will whisk you across the city or just a couple of stops up to Elephant & Castle for the tube (Bakerloo, Northern) and surface rail connections.
