Chevening Road, Crystal Palace
Park-facing four bed (and four bath) end of terrace house. The modern-build - one of a boutique development - is delivered over three floors and 1790 square feet, and is being sold chain free.
As well as its impressive size and scale, the pleasing property boasts large windows (and lots of them!), secure private parking, and a low-maintenance garden plus large top floor balcony - off the largest bedroom.
A genuinely rarely-available proposition and a brilliant location to boot! Rockmount Primary School (Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’) is mere strides away. Upper Norwood Rec. is your direct opposite neighbour, and both Crystal Palace Park and the high street ‘Triangle’, are but a short walk away. Your local stations are Gipsy Hill (walk 10 minutes) and Crystal Palace (walk 15).
A gated and tidy front garden sets you back from the pavement. In your front door and first on your left is a generous eat-in kitchen, with contemporary dark grey gloss units and integrated appliances. Large profile tiles feature to the floor. To your right of the large hall, you’ve got a cloak cupboard, and beyond is a downstairs/guest w.c.
Next up is the huge reception room - where you can easily zone big dining and seating spaces, and which runs over 28 feet to folding doors onto the decked area of the garden.
Up to the first floor, and to the front of the property is a big double bedroom of over 14 feet by over 11 feet, with an en suite bathroom (which also accessed from the landing). From the landing area you’ve got a couple of generous built-in storage cupboards, and an independent utility room. The floor is completed by another double bedroom to garden views - this one’s over 12 feet by nearly 11 feet, with a neat shower room.
The second floor continues to delight! To the rear of the floor is a third double bedroom (11 feet by over 10 feet) with an en suite shower room. The fourth and final bedroom is 16 feet by over 14 feet, and this has a full en suite bathroom (with independent shower plus bath), and wall-spanning folding doors onto an incredible wide and south-facing balcony; with dreamy park and leafy vistas.
This is a beautifully-leafy patch of SE London. You have easy connectivity to central London and a leafy suburban feel in equal measure.
Getting around? The 450 bus route goes along Chevening Road itself. The other buses that go along Central Hill (417, 432, N2 and N137) are mere minutes from your door, and the 249 goes along Church Road.
Crystal Palace has so much going for it. Lovely local pubs include The Alma, Sparrowhawk and The White Hart (book ahead for your Sunday roasts!). There are loads of good restaurants too to suit all tastes and budgets (a couple of our favourites are Numidie and Joanna’s), and you have an Everyman Cinema.
There’s a big Sainsbury’s on Westow Street and for treats, check out Dalhousie and Blackbird Bakery among other cafe and deli life.
The National Sports Centre within beautiful, Victorian Crystal Palace Park is listed and home to an Olympic sized pool and strong gym and sporting facilities. The park itself is home to dinosaurs, a lake, and even a maze!
Closer still is 33-acre Norwood Park (walk here in under 15 minutes) - a lovely hilly one with wooded and play areas and a cute cafe.
