THE PROPERTY

Wastdale Road is positioned well for transport, highly acclaimed schools, local amenities and recreation which we’ll tell you more about below.

The maisonette has its own front door and entrance hall, is positioned in a terraced building with some internal period features such as a fireplace with wonderful ornate period style tiles and cast-iron insert. The property extends to over 815 sq ft of living space (which is the size of some small houses we’ve sold) and spans over the first and second floors. This provides a wonderful split-level feature which is quite rare for this location at this price point.

As the property offers over 815 sq ft, some of the rooms are larger than expected in size. The lounge is approximately 15.7 ft and has southerly facing windows. You’ll note that the current owner has a piano in the lounge alongside all the other typical lounge furniture and its doesn’t look crowded. Some buyers may wish to rearrange the layout of the furniture in the lounge to accommodate a dining table and chairs which we feel is possible due to the size of the room. Additionally, there is a wonderful, period style fireplace which acts as the central focus of the room.

Due once again to the overall size of the property, the maisonette has two double bedrooms which is another great feature rarely found at this price in Forest Hill. Commonly properties around this price will offer either just one bedroom or a smaller second bedroom.

Some additional stand out features that are not noticeable in the images include loft space (that could offer potential to extend subject to consent) and a lease of 189 years and no ground rent or service charges to pay.
