tranquil scenery

Varndean Park Estate was built in the early 1970s, and is an exclusive development of houses and apartments set in beautifully manicured grounds. This two bedroom, two en suite apartment is on the third floor of the upper low rise building, and is deceptively spacious as well as being well maintained. It has a balcony overlooking the grounds, and the residents get sole use of an outdoor heated swimming pool; a luxury feature from March to October. Preston Park Station is an easy walk, as are the local shops, making these hugely sought after apartments, which are popular with first time buyers, downsizers, and commuters alike, so it is sure to be admired by many.

Why you’ll like it:

This apartment stands in exquisite grounds which are maintained daily by two full time gardeners who tend to the flowering beds, the mature trees and the ornamental pond which is lit up at night. The private roads sweep in from Varndean Drive, where this block is first on the right, and is approached up some wide steps, and through two secure glazed doors to the communal lobby; very much akin to a hotel with well lit, well presented corridors, and a tall steel lift to take you to the third floor. Signs clearly direct you to the apartment, and once inside you are welcomed in to an entrance hall where there are deep cupboards for your coats, bags and shoes to keep the space clutter free.

The double bedrooms and bathrooms are to the right from here, peacefully tucked away from the main living area. Both have lovely green outlooks through their large picture windows, and each has a built in wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom. Both of these are sizable with bathtubs with new electric power showers above, and while the style could be modernised, they are immaculate with shining tiles plenty of storage below the basins. The bedrooms have also been kept beautifully in soothing pale shades, and each has space for a large double bed as well as freestanding furniture too, although the master benefits from an entire wall of built in wardrobes.

The generous living room is found at the far end of the flat, and this is wonderfully spacious so you can have clearly defined areas for seating and dining. The walls have a luxurious sage striped wallpaper with a light latte carpet to complement, which marries well with the leafy views from the balcony. This is covered so it can be enjoyed all year round, and being so high up you can sit and watch the wildlife in the trees. 

The kitchen is conveniently accessed from the living room, and like the rest of the flat is in a fantastic condition, with traditional style white gloss units topped with practical dark work surfaces and below this the gas oven and hob, washing machine and fridge with freezer compartment are integrated. Blue and white chequered tiles make up the splashbacks to add a splash of colour, while the sink has been thoughtfully placed below the window so you can drink in the views as you wash up.

This is a tranquil and well-designed flat in a very desirable area, so it is sure to be snapped up.

Bear in mind:

There is a spacious separate cloakroom and WC which could be transformed into a study as there is already plenty of storage, and further WCs can be found in the en suites.
