Alexandra Walk, Gipsy Hill
Architecturally-treated three bed, two bath house of 1148 square feet, with an amazing (sun-drenched) courtyard garden - direct access is from two of the bedrooms and the open-plan reception space. There’s an additional cute patio too. Alexandra Walk rests off Alexandra Drive. It’s a quiet residential spot.
Before we get in the house, a handy (accessed-externally) store impresses, for bikes/buggy/suchlike. In the frosted front door and there’s a roomy hall space - which is fitted out with shoe and coat storage, plus seating. And you've got a washing machine and boiler cupboard.
The triple-aspect (yep!) room ahead stretches some 35 feet by over 15; incorporating kitchen, dining and seating spaces. We love the seamless terrazzo flooring and the gallons of glazing.
The garden is a sunny, colourful, richly-planted and seriously-private oasis. Enjoy looking at it from all of the bedrooms and the reception and hall spaces which wrap around it. Treats include a crab apple tree, and beautiful flowers, foliage and climbers - some of these are blue agapanthus, white foxglove, pink anemones, red canna lilies, white day lilies, purple salvias, purple verbena bonariensis and trachelospermum jasminoides.
The fitted kitchen is a slick affair - with deep drawers, integrated appliances, and an induction hob. Open shelves let you show off your best bits. Counters and splash backs are stainless steel.
Right of the front door and you’ve got a windowed shower room to your right, with contemporary fixtures and fittings. Opposite is the first of the double bedrooms. This one’s 10 feet by nearly 12. Another double bedroom rests next door - this one’s over 8 feet by nearly 15 feet, with a door out to the garden.
Turning right from the top of the reception area, you’ve got a lobby area (ideal for a home working/hobby spot), then the property’s second bathroom to your left. This one has both bath and shower. Finally, find the third reception - of over 16 feet by over 12 feet, with exposed brick detail and a sliding door out to the garden. If you don’t need all three bedrooms as bedrooms, this one makes a fab additional reception.
Gipsy Hill Station is your closest - walk here in five minutes. There are a cluster of good pubs here: The Great Southern, The Paxton and The Colby Arms. The Bull & Finch is a nice craft beer place too.
And Crystal Palace Station (and the amazing park adjacent - complete with dinosaurs and Olympic pool!) is yours in under-15. Crystal Palace Triangle has loads of restaurants, bars, plus independent shopping. Some of our recommendations include Joanna’s, Numidie and Westow House.
