Lucas Road, Penge
Delightful two double bedroom purpose-built ground floor garden maisonette, that’s just a two minute walk from Penge East Station. Or it’s 10 to Penge West (and Crystal Palace Park - woohoo!). Leasehold.
Lucas Road is one of Penge’s prettiest streets, of the no-through-road variety, near the eye-candy that is St John’s Church, tucked away from the handy high street area.
In your own front door and your first bedroom rests to your right. It’s over 11 feet each way, with a feature fireplace, a soft carpet, alcove shelving and sash windows.
Adjacent is your second bedroom - of over 13 feet by over 11 feet. Here the floors are stripped and painted (white) boards, and you have another charming feature fireplace.
Moving through the hall, a deep cupboard is on your left - a handy spot for coats, the vacuum and such. At the foot of the hall you land in the wooden-reception room, of over 12 feet by over 11 feet, with a smile-bringing opened-up (working) fireplace.
Beyond is your kitchen - a modern fitted one, with timeless Shaker-style units, wooden worktops, brick-style tiling and open shelving. A ceramic Butler sink and gadget tap are further welcome features.
Past the kitchen you have a lobby with back door to the garden, then a smart windowed bathroom with white sanitary ware and traditional-style fittings (including the over bath shower).
Your decked garden is a relaxed low-maintenance affair - perfect for parties with pals.
Crystal Palace Park; with its sports centre, lake, farm, gardening school and even dinosaurs - is a short walk.
You’re well-placed for stations as we’ve mentioned. You’ve also got good bus routes - including the 176 for Waterloo/Trafalgar Square/Tottenham Court Road.
Local lovely cafes include the one at Alexandra Nurseries, and Brown and Green Life within Crystal Palace Park. For meals out locally we particularly like Sicilian Art Pizzeria and Bistro chez Yves. Pubs? Check out The Alexandra and Bridge House. The town centres of Crystal Palace, Sydenham, Dulwich, Forest Hill and Beckenham are close for more options.
