*GUIDE PRICE £300,000-£350,000* A great opportunity to purchase a spotless one bedroom, share of freehold apartment just 550 metres from trendy Bellenden Road in Peckham.
Forming part of Linwood Close, a development built in the late 80s, this gorgeous apartment isn't just close to Bellenden Road but is a 10 minute walk from Peckham Rye station, Denmark Hill station, Rye Lane, King's College Hospital and much, much more.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION really is the choice phrase but, to spare boring those that know, a more complete list of the amazing local amenities is listed below and a virtual walk to Bellenden Road & beyond is linked in the 'Video Tour' tab.
Despite being so close to so much, the development boasts communal gardens and rarer still, an endearing woodland, which includes a communal barbeque area beautiful in the summer.
This ground floor apartment, has its own private parking space and private entrance (unusual for the development).
The almost open plan entrance hall is so different from the norm with immaculate oak veneer double doors leading into the lounge, where a south facing 2.85m window ensures plenty of sunlight and a view out on to the shared gardens.
The bedroom comfortably fits a king size bed and has space either side of the door for storage.
The kitchen is separated from the dining area yet has the potential to be made open plan, if you prefer.
The current owners have just had the flat professionally decorated, ensuring a blank canvas for the new owners to move straight into.
Linwood Close is just a 900m walk from Zone 2 Peckham Rye station and 1100m from Zone 2 Denmark Hill station, which means, for those that didn't know, it is the joint cheapest zone for travel in London (as Zone 2 is the same price as Zone 1).
Both stations are on the Overground and the same two National Rail lines speed into all sides of the city (Victoria, Blackfriars, St Pancras, Farringdon, Clapham Junction and Canada Water to name a few), while Peckham Rye offers one additional line just 10 minutes to London Bridge.
Buses are available from as close as Bellenden Road. However, if you're a bus connoisseur there are 11 different options on Rye Lane, and 8 different options that pass by Denmark Hill.
For cyclists, the City is approximately 25 minutes away, with much of the journey by dedicated cycle paths, parks and quiet cycle routes. Meanwhile, there is secure bike storage in the close and a cycle stand outside the front door.
Having share of freehold, the owners of the flats in Linwood Close do not pay ground rent and each have a stake in the running of the development, which is an advantage over leasehold alternatives.
To ensure there are no horrible surprises, the development's annual charges include a chunky reserve fund (currently over £110k) to go towards any potential major works in the future.
Many residents take an active interest in where they live and there is plenty of the community spirit that people who live in the area like about it. There is an active Facebook group and summer parties if you want to get involved and residents are friendly, but not intrusive.
Despite our best efforts, the pictures really don't do this perfect apartment justice, so come and see for yourself. We look forward to hearing from you.
