*Guide Price £475,000-£500,000* A fully renovated, loft and rear extended, two/three bed, two bath, terraced cottage - situated on Palace Road, just a 400m walk from Bromley Centre.
Thought to have been built at a similar time to neighbouring Park Road (in the 1870s), Palace Road is a gorgeous Victorian street which almost takes you back in time as you walk down it. The road forms part of what some now refer to as Bromley old town' behind Bromley North station, however unlike much of the immediate area (which is typically grand Victorian family homes), it mainly consists of terraced Victorian cottages likely to have been built for key workers at that time.
This particular home was recently in need of everything doing and has now been caringly refurbished to modern standards ensuring the new owners can move straight in without needing to lift a finger. Once a very awkward layout, the owners have since extended in the loft and to the rear, thoughtfully remodelling the home for contemporary living. The most notable changes are the re-designed staircase to accommodate a generous open plan kitchen/lounge area, glass sliding doors out to the private garden, two first floor bedrooms with guest shower room & a loft extension to accommodate the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
In addition to re-modelling, the property was stripped right back to the core and therefore now benefits from the latest standard of electrics, plumbing, heating system & building/safety regulations. Both new roofs are covered with fibreglass boasting a 25-year guarantee. Additional key features include the improved insulation, underfloor heating in the bathrooms, kitchen heat sensor, newly plastered/decorated walls, engineered wood flooring at ground level, plush carpet on first/second floor, up to the minute kitchen & bathroom suites and designer tap mixers.
No expense was spared in the gardens either clearing & levelling the rear, creating two wooden patios & laying a landscaped paved front garden. Further potential to add an outhouse in the garden is also possible (subject to permitted development) as shown by many of the neighbours down the street.
The most endearing feature is how beautifully quiet Palace Road is despite being just a 400m walk from Bromley centre. The Glades' shopping centre is an attraction for many, and ensures the centre encourages successful independent retailers, high street regulars & a variety of restaurants. As a result of being so convenient the road does have residents permit parking between 12:00-14:00 to prevent cheeky parkers! Closest station Bromley North is just a 500m walk door to door, providing a shuttle to Grove Park which then links into London Bridge, Cannon Street & Charing Cross in as little as 15 mins, while Bromley South (on the other side of the High Street) provides a direct link to Victoria reaching in just 18 mins.
Despite our best efforts, the pictures really don't do it justice so please do come and see for yourself!
