Chaplin Close, London, SE1
Nestled at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this fully refurbished two-bedroom apartment is a unique and surprising find. It provides the perfect retreat for someone who wants a modern, comfortable, quiet home while still having the city of London on their doorstep.
This ground floor apartment in a low-rise, purpose-built development, has been completely refurbished and modernised throughout to a high standard by the current owner over the last two years including complete rewiring, re-plumbing, new boiler and central heating system, smoke alarm system throughout, all new appliances and fittings, and newly installed fibre-optic broadband.
The beautifully decorated property comprises a hallway on entry which leads onto each room in the home. To the left is a double-sized master bedroom which includes fitted wardrobes, giving the room extra storage and space. Across the hallway is another bedroom with fitted storage which has been used as a home office by the current owner. The property also includes an elegantly renovated shower room, with worktop-mounted glass basin and a luxurious overhead shower. There is a separate toilet located close to the entrance of the apartment.
The sleek and fully equipped kitchen includes fridge, freezer, dishwasher, oven and ceramic hob, stylish tiles, cupboards with countertop lights, and solid oak counters and breakfast bar. The kitchen has a door into the garden and opens on to a covered deck that forms an outdoor dining area, complete with wooden table and chairs set.
The living room has been decorated to a high standard and includes ample storage with a modern built-in bookcase unit, a fireplace (with biofuel smokeless burner), vertical radiator, sofa and two armchairs. The French doors leading out into the garden open the room, giving it an airy and bright finish.
The large, secluded garden includes the decking area, lawn, vegetable beds, and a firepit seating area; the perfect space to entertain friends and family and adds a rare tranquillity to its inner-city surroundings. There is also a large shed for extra storage and a side accessway with a gate from the front of the property. The fully planted garden includes an apple tree, a hedge of sloe and blackberries, plus strawberries and blackberries in the veg patch.
The location of this property is second to none. Vibrant shopping, dining, and theatre areas of The Cut and Lower Marsh are only a couple of streets away, and the South Bank, Tate Modern, the National Theatre, and Bankside Yards are less than a 10-minute walk. Just over the river, Covent Garden is within walking distance. Rail, underground and bus links from Waterloo Station, as well as Southwark Station and a short walk to Blackfriars Station, mean you're well connected to get further afield.
This property makes for an ideal first-time buy, rental investment, or city pad (and all furniture can be included in the purchase), while the second bedroom would also make a perfect office for a work-at-home professional, or child's room for a new family. The large secure private garden, with access gate from the front of the building and side walkway, would suit a dog owner or cycle owner alike.
The resident leaseholder has no onward chain and can move out quickly for an expedited sale.
Viewing highly recommended to appreciate the opportunity on offer.
