This exceptional home is situated on the ground floor of a converted Victorian house which makes it suitable for an elderly couple, young family or a professional couple. It has gorgeous tall ceilings and generous room sizes and central heating throughout.

Legend has it that this was the local Manor House in its day and when you enter the lobby you can see how this might be true. The original fireplace still exists as a through back to a bygone era.

Upon entering the apartment one is immediately amazed at the size, space, ceiling height and brightness which draws you in.

Turn right and the living space which used to house a massive 4 seater recliner sofa awaits your attention. You see the gas fire place which we used last winter.

Off the living room is the Master bedroom with a luxury en-suite shower room.

The ensuite shower room has a beautiful glass door, a low level WC and a walk in rainfall shower overhead as well as a regular shower, ceramic sink and automatic extractor fan.

The Master bedroom itself comfortably fits a Queen size bed and there are power points suitably located on both sides of the bed space for you to plug in your phone and all other gadgets that you keep by your bed.

Leaving the Master bedroom you walk through the lounge and into the large dual aspect kitchen with underfloor heating and an island which houses the following appliances:

- De Dietrich hob
- De Dietrich Teppanyaki
- Downdraft (luxury automatic extractor). "A birthday gift to the lady of the house"
- Dishwasher (never used)

Behind you is the Merck self cleaning oven and above that is the recently purchased microwave.

The sink has a modern Franke insinkerator and a fitted Britta water filter tap.

Installed in the breakfast bar is a pop-up power socket which allows you to hide away wires, keeping your kitchen tidy. And also allows you to bring power to the areas which were previously hard to reach.

We also have the following standalone appliances all in working order:
- small freezer
- large fridge/freezer
- washing machine
- tumble dryer.

which are available should you wish to acquire them.

Walking back through the kitchen and the lounge and into the hallway, the door opposite opens up into a large smart, sleek luxury modern family bathroom with separate walk in shower.

The double ceramic sink draws you into the room. The sunken bath makes you want to turn the taps on, pour in the bubble bath and take a nap

However you haven't finished looking around yet. Turn right in the bathroom and you'll see the low level stylish WC and the large walk-in enclosed double sized shower space - again with a rain water overhead shower head. Contemplate how you can really enjoy getting up in the mornings.

Leave the family bathroom and you're in the hallway (lit by sensor controlled lighting) which leads on to the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms.

The second bedroom is large, fully double glazed and at the far end of the apartment.

The 3rd bedroom, again fully double glazed comfortably fits a bunk bed or can easily be transformed into your home office.

The boiler is currently being maintained under an annual service contract and was last serviced over the summer. We also have British Gas Hive which enables you to control the heating remotely from your phone.

So why is this gorgeous flat on the market
The nest is empty and it's simply time to fly away. We've loved living here and with it being so close to central Croydon, 15mins walk to both the Centrale and the Whitgift shopping areas; 10 mins to East Croydon and South Croydon and 5 minutes down to the high street, North End or South End. You are central enough to actually be in the Central parking zone which means on a lazy day you can actually park at the station And did I mention that if you want to eat from every continent on a different day of the week you're in the right place on the High Street.

In case you're not aware, Croydon is swapping the Whitgift Centre for a Westfield Shopping Centre. The new Westfield is opening in 2018 as part of Croydon town centres 1 billion regeneration project. We're also getting a BOXPARK.

Croydon is the next best place to invest and live - so get in now before property prices go even further through the roof (Obviously I can't guarantee that they will, who can My crystal ball has never been reliable)

The offer:
Pay cash, complete and move in for 296,000 in 7 days.


No mortgage needed so you can stop paying dead rent to your landlord and start owning those bricks Simple, easy, fast..

Here's how it works:

You pay some getting started money of at least 55,000 make a monthly payment (437.67pw), some of your rent goes towards buying the house over the next 18 months. The house price is fixed at 346,000 which means if it goes up in price and you decide to buy or sell the house you profit.

In 18 months time you can decide whether you want to:

- Buy the house with a bank mortgage.
- Walk away (you'll lose the 55,000 getting stated money)
- Stick a sign outside and sell it. (so you don't necessarily need a bank loan)

Picture this: You sitting on the sofa watching the telly in your own home that you own.

The lease:
- 99 year lease from 24th June 1984

Comparable apartments sell for circa 350k in this road or you could increase your budget by 150-200k and buy a new apartment around the corner with allocated parking, your own balcony and great views from each angle.

This apartment has been reduced to reflect the fact that:
-- We want a quick sale.
-- The lease can be extended for circa 25k.

I'm happy to initiate this and sign the required S42 in order for you to buy this with a mortgage. Your solicitor would finalise the paperwork for this to ensure it's done properly.

Speak to your solicitor for further details on how best to proceed.

Then speak to your mortgage company / Broker / IFA about getting a mortgage (unless of course you're paying cash).

To save your time and mine always speak to your solicitor if you need further clarification about how to buy this apartment as quickly as possible.
Get in touch to watch the video walk through before coming over to confirm you love the house.

During the viewing I will walk you around the apartment pointing out what we've loved about living here.

We look forward to showing you around.
