Devonshire Road, Honor Oak
Offers in excess of £750,000.
Superb split-level period conversion apartment of circa 1404 square feet (not a typo). Chain free.
You’ve got three double bedrooms, both bath and shower rooms, and (direct access to) a private terrace, with steps leading down to a private garden as well. Your outside spaces are pleasingly sunny: south-east facing in orientation.
The location is a strong one as well! With Honor Oak’s cute high street - on a little slope down to the South Circular - just a couple of minutes away. And Forest Hill’s town centre and station is at your feet in 15.
Walk just two minutes to Honor Oak Park Station - for regular and Overground services.
A gated front garden, with mature box-hedging, sets you back from the street. There’s a shared main door (just one apartment is below yours) then open your own front door and take stairs up.
First find a neat (windowed) w.c. then a large kitchen/diner - of over 14 feet by over 11 feet; with timeless fitted units, stone counters, and practical tiling to the floor. A timber-framed glazed door opens onto your bright and tiled terrace, where steps deliver you down to a second outside garden space (low-maintenance paving here). The whole lot is verdantly-framed with railway land behind. You’ll forget you’re in London.
The first floor further hosts a big reception room to the rear of the building, and a large bedroom to the front (these are notably generous at over 14 feet by 13 feet, and of over 14 feet each way) and the main bathroom - with simple white suite and a frosted casement window. The reception room has two sash windows, while the bedroom has two casement ones. Stripped boards to the floor feature in both.
Next up is a large carpeted double bedroom of over 14 feet by over 11 feet, with a neat (and windowed) shower room next door.
Finally, you’ve got your huge master bedroom at the top of the building. There’s loads of built-in and eaves storage. Wooden floors and exposed-brick detail are more welcome features.
Honor Oak Park Station is a short walk and serves up regular (three stops to London Bridge) and Overground services.
Your local high street has handy shops, alomgside nice cafes and eateries. We particularly like Honor Oak Provender (the classy fresh loaves and house-made quiche are our favourites), Two Spoons (for brunch, coffee and such), and Miss Margherita (for yummy pizzas) in a former bank building.
Other local delights include Nonna Maria restaurant and No. 41 cafe.
This is a particularly leafy spot to lay your hat. Local green spaces include Devonshire Road Nature Reserve, Blythe Hill Fields, One Tree Hill, Horniman Gardens, Brenchley Gardens, and Peckham Rye Park and Common.
Other local centres include Forest Hill, Sydenham, East Dulwich, Crofton Park and Brockley.
