Harold Road, Crystal Palace
Recently and beautifully refurbished two bed flat with own front door, a share of the building’s Freehold, and a low-maintenance private east-facing garden. Fronted by a deep front communal garden, the property’s set on the ground floor of a fine Victorian mansion within Harold Road Conservation Area. Find yourself in an especially-leafy setting, just a few minutes from Crystal Palace Triangle, Upper Norwood Recreation Ground, and Westow Park.
You are also just an 11 minute walk from the top entrance to Crystal Palace Park, a 14 minute walk from Gipsy Hill Station, and a 19 minute one from Crystal Palace Station (CPS has Overground as well as regular rail services). Unrestricted parking is available on the street and neighbouring ones too.
Choose to enter the flat via the grand and recently-decorated communal hall, or the flat’s own front door which is accessed to the left of the building. If entering through the communal hall, you open into the hall space and furthest to your left is a handsome master bedroom where the high ceilings are a particularly impressive feature, with beautiful original coving. Adjacent is an immaculate and contemporary-styled bathroom, with high-end fittings including a heated towel rail, and an oversized shower. Next door is the second bedroom - a smaller double - with two windows to the far wall and a pale carpet.
Taking a right from the hall you land in the generous reception room, of over 14 feet by over 11. There’s plenty of space to zone seating and dining areas here, and a period fireplace (working, and with marble surround) is a very welcome feature and focal point. Timber-framed French doors open out onto the private garden that’s decked in the main, and which gets great sun throughout the morning. Last but not least is the smart and modern kitchen stretching 14 feet and with both skylight and casement windows, brick-style ceramic tiling, and timeless white wall and base units - paired with solid oak counters.
Crystal Palace has so much going for it and seems to just keep giving! A recent lauded addition is the new Everyman Cinema.
Lovely and lively local pubs include The Alma and The White Hart (book ahead for your Sunday roasts!). Restaurants? We particularly rate Numidie, Crystal Palace Market, Joanna’s, Edo and Tamnag Thai to name but a few.
A big Sainsbury’s on Westow Street easily settles the weekly shop, 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 brilliant gym and sporting facilities. The park itself is home to dinosaurs, a lake, and even a maze!
