GUIDE PRICE £325,000 TO £350,000. Being sold with no onward chain and a share of freehold, this one bedroom property is on the second floor of a grand period building on Sydenham Park which is located approximately half a mile to Forest Hill town centre, station and amenities.

There are many stunning features of this property which can be seen in all the images, however some of the key features include:

- The period style sash windows to the front of the flat. Two are in the living space and one with a curved top in the kitchen. These are rare, striking features in our experience selling properties locally.

- Stripped wooden floorboards.

- High ceilings.

- Garden.

The dimensions of the main rooms (living and bedroom) are another great selling point. Both rooms span 15ft and when combined with the ceiling height, stripped floors and feature windows it gives the property an extra special feel.

As you will note from the images the lounge is large enough for a dedicated dining area and a comfortable lounge area which gives you some sense of the scale offered.

Alongside all the great features of the flat, the location, is very sought after for several reasons:

1. ACCESS TO TRANSPORT. Approximately 0.5 mile away you will find both Forest Hill and Sydenham stations. These two stations offer some of the following travel times to central London:

London Bridge in approximately 15 minutes (change for Northern Line)

Canada Water in approximately 12 minutes (change for Jubilee line)

London Victoria in approximately 40 minutes

Canary Wharf in approximately 24 minutes

Alongside the train links you will find a number of bus routes from approximately on the south circular which includes routes 122 and 185 to Crystal Palace and Victoria to name a few.

2. ACCESS TO AMENITIES. Approximately 0.3 mile from the property you will find a Tesco express and a selection of other shops. In forest Hill town centre, you will find a large Sainsburys, Boots, Superdrug alongside many other boutique shops and conveniences. The selection of cafes and gastro pubs locally is always good. Dulwich and the popular Lordship Lane and Dulwich Village are a bus ride away as is Peckham which are all well known locally for great eating, shopping and social life.

3. SHOPPING, DINING OUT AND RECREATION. In recent years this location has become increasingly popular for recreation given its proximity to all Forest Hill has to offer. The well-known Sydenham Hill woods are located approximately 0.8 miles away where you will always find many walkers and locals enjoying the outdoors. The Sydenham and Dulwich Golf course is located next to the wood. The extremely popular Horniman Museum and gardens are located just a little further down from the woods and is now particularly popular for its farmers market and regular events (music at the bandstand in summer being one of them). Sydenham Wells Park and Mayow Park are two other well regarded local green spaces and you will also find a nature reserve and the very highly acclaimed Crystal Palace Park all approximately 1 mile and less away from the property.

Off of the high street in the town centre you'll find Forest Hill pools and library both of which have undergone refurbishment.

Forest Hill pools is known for its swimming pool facilities but is also a local leisure centre with a gym and fitness classes.

4. SCHOOLS. One of the most highly acclaimed schools on South East London is Elliott Bank. This school is not only OFSTED rated outstanding, it's also rated in OFSTED's top 10%. This school is found locally and there are several highly regarded schools across Forest Hill and Sydenham which offers buyers confidence in the area they are buying in.

As you will also own a share of the freehold (shared between you and one other in the building) when you buy this property, you and the other owners will self-manage the building via a ltd company that is already in place. Costs such as building insurance, the gardener and other general maintenance around the building are paid from this fund. In our opinion this set up offers the property owners more control over how the building is maintained and managed. It also give you more control over the associated costs which is unlikely to be the case when a third party is the freeholder or a management agent is in place.
