Full description

THE PROPERTY:

Elsinore Road is well-known for its period properties and proximity to transport links, local high streets and recreational facilities.

This flat offers over 675 sq ft of living space, which we consider to be a generous size. In addition, the flat has many lifestyle features such as:

A social and cleverly laid out kitchen diner which is over 16ft in length. The two windows in this room have a southerly aspect filling the room with beams of light on a sunny day as can be seen in the images of this room.

There are a number of period style features such as coving, panelling and sash windows which are particularly noticeable in the lounge picture.

There is a skylight in the hallway which illuminates this area naturally. Around the skylight is some clever storage in addition to having loft access.

We believe this is a huge selling point - direct access to a private, westerly facing garden of almost 50ft which should capture the afternoon and evening sun. The garden has a decked area which is great for seating and BBQ’s as well as a lawn area.

The lease is healthy with approximately 120 years remaining. The yearly charges amount to approximately £100 which in our opinion is cost effective when compared to other properties we have sold locally.

LOCAL SHOPPING EATING AND CONVENIENCES:

Local high streets include Honor Oak, Forest Hill and Catford, where you will find Tesco, Sainsbury's, your choice of boutique cafés, restaurants and trendy gastro pubs, as well as leisure centres, libraries and even the odd cocktail bar...

Some of the places nearby we know well are the award-winning Babur Indian restaurant. There's also the popular Mama Dough (Sour Dough) pizza restaurant and Le Querce - run by a Sardinian family serving traditional dishes.

The Honor Oak pub was refurbished a year or so ago, and is now a popular gastropub with a fantastic beer garden out the back.

The Signal pub in Forest Hill has undergone a £500,000 refurbishment and we really enjoy their food and drinks menu (try their hasselback potatoes...).

Fancy a reasonably priced Indian delivery with a difference? We'd recommend Spice Guru (try their black pepper and sea salt naan bread...)
