Birdwood Avenue, Hither Green
Offers in excess of £325,000.
Well-appointed and notably-generous one double bedroom fifth floor penthouse apartment of 555 square feet, in a corner position, with a private balcony (accessed from both the bedroom and reception room), plus a private secure parking space. Walk just eight minutes to Hither Green Station. Leasehold.
The flat sits within Cherrywood Lodge - part of a modern low-rise development located next to Hither Green’s iconic historic clock-faced water tower (once a part of the former Royal Park Fever Hospital site). The tower and hospital were designed by Edwin T. Hall; the architect behind London's Liberty department store.
Back to the flat! Get to your your own front door by stairs or lift. Once in, you land in a generous hall with deep built-in cupboards and shelving to your left. Straight ahead you have a slick and modern internal bathroom with over bath shower and heated towel rail.
Next up is the big and double-aspect bedroom of over 17 feet by over 9 feet. Deep built-in closets take the near wall, and at the other end of the room, access your private balcony.
Lastly, find our favourite room: the double-aspect kitchen/dining room/reception room which runs over 23 feet. At the foot of the room you have a Juliet balcony and a double-glazed (the flat’s double-glazed throughout) door onto the balcony.
The fitted kitchen is a swish number with stone counters, integrated appliances (which include a full-size dishwasher), on-trend pendant lighting, and a breakfast bar/evening bar. It’s a natural entertaining space.
Hither Green is becoming increasingly popular with young professionals and families alike for its combination of fast commute to the City and Canary Wharf, leafy disposition and village-vibe.
Hither Green Station is a short walk and will have you in central London in a jiffy, with a 10 minute journey time to London Bridge, or 20 to Charing Cross/Canon Street.
Really locally, you have Tesco and Co-Op stores, and Mission Green Organic Food shop is close too. Drink at Bob's and Good Hope Cafe plus a new independent florist are popular destinations on Hither Green Lane itself, as is Cafe Green (on Ennersdale Road, for authentic Vietnamese food).
The Station Hotel is a strong local public house, or walk down to Lewisham’s town centre for main shops M&S, Sainsbury's, Starbucks etc. and the friendly daily markets.
Green space? Lewisham Park and Mountsfield Parks are local, and others further afield include Ladywell and Hilly Fields.
