MannCountrywide are pleased to be the sole agent on this incredible three bedroom Victorian conversion on one of Sydenham's finest roads which wouldn't look out of place in either Chelsea or Knightsbridge . Conveniently split over two levels and with an abundance of space it is hard not to be impressed. Upon entering the communal doorway, you are led up a set of stairs to a bright airy landing leading onto a large kitchen with appliances and space for a dining table, tiled bathroom and well appointed reception with plenty of natural light through two original sash windows. To the second floor we have a seperate W.C and three spacious double bedrooms. Other benefits include access to a well kept communal garden and easy access to a number of excellent transport links. Available mid June. View now.
Less than 200 years ago Sydenham was a sleepy hamlet in the Kent countryside. All changed in 1852 when the Directors of the Railway company had the bright idea of buying and moving the Crystal Palace built by St Joseph Paxton for the Great Exhibition in 1851 from Hyde Park to Sydenham. Their idea was to encourage Londoners to take a day out 'in the country' to visit the new enlarged Crystal Palace set in its own pleasure gardens complete with pools, fountains and even a Dinosaur Theme Park. A sort of combination of Disneyland and Jurassic Park!
This transformed Sydenham into a fashionable Victorian town for Londoners to visit which inevitably grew and merged to now make Sydenham an integral multi-ethnic part of South East London.
The FA Cup was played here, Colour TV was invented here, the first pneumatic railway ran through Sydenham and many famous & notorious people have made it their home
In 1871 Sydenham was imortalised in the works of the exiled Camille Pissaro - the most famous of which, a view along Lawrie Park Avenue towards St Bart's Church, now hangs in the National Gallery. Other famous residents of Sydenham have included Ernest Shackleton, the Antartic explorer, Sir George Groves, compiler of the musical dictionary, and W G Grace, England's greatest cricketer.
Sydenham station has recently opened the East London tube line extension that connects Sydenham to Surrey Quays and Islington
