Westbourne Drive, Forest Hill

Chain free, and owned only once, here’s an immaculate warehouse-style two double bedroom ground floor apartment of 755 square feet, with sole access to a cool ‘city’ garden. Long leasehold. 

It’s one of just eight homes (five apartments and three houses) in a beautiful boutique 2017 scheme by Frame Architects, just a five minute walk from Forest Hill Station. 

Welcome flat features include high ceilings, large Crittall windows and doors, smart flooring and kitchen carpentry in Douglas Fir, Bosch integrated appliances, bespoke wardrobes in both bedrooms, and a custom-made floating cabinet in the bathroom (crafted by a local carpenter). Further, there is generous shared bike and bin storage, and you have unrestricted on-street parking.

From a neat communal hall, your own front door is straight ahead. The two double bedrooms rest to your right of the high-ceilinged hall. Both are decent doubles, with slimline rads and built-in closets. Next along the hall is the property’s bathroom - with white sanitary ware and traditional-style fittings, including an oversized over-bath shower head.

At the foot of the hall you’ve got the main event: a huge open-plan reception/dining room/kitchen which extends over 25 feet by over 15 feet. The contemporary fitted kitchen is in two contrasting parts. Huge Crittall doors at the end of the room deliver you to your low-maintenance and private courtyard garden. 

Forest Hill has a buzzy and friendly town centre, with a large Sainsbury’s store and loads of pleasing independent offerings; including a brilliant free range butcher (The Butchery) and lots of cafes, pubs, restaurants and cute shops. The Sylvan Post is a quirky real ale place, in an old Post Office. We also like Big Cheeks for authentic Thai food. For exercise, there are multiple gyms and yoga studios, as well as the Forest Hill Pools, within easy walking distance.

For more options, local towns include Honor Oak, East Dulwich, Sydenham, Brockley and Peckham. 

Green spaces locally include Horniman Gardens (by the museum), Sydenham Hill Wood, One Tree Hill and Mayow Park. Local nature reserves include Dacres Wood and Devonshire Road. 

Forest Hill Station is really close for London-bound trains (go direct to London Bridge in under 20 minutes), and Overgound services to Hoxton, Clapham Junction and Canada Water (for Canary Wharf). The Elizabeth Line is one easy interchange away at Whitechapel. There are also plenty of useful bus routes upon the South Circular.

Local Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ primary schools include Fairlawn and Eliot Bank.
