If Bruce Wayne or Peter Parker had a £350-£400k budget in Beckenham they would buy this flat…

Share of freehold, top floor, full length private balcony, 2 equal doubles, electric entry parking & lift access.

Electric gated parking under the building, glass corridors, lift access, CCTV security, secure bike storage, secure entry and a communal roof terrace – this building is one of the coolest in town!

Let me guess - when you started looking, you wanted a penthouse like apartment with oodles of space and a show off balcony/terrace… but nothing has hit the mark. **Look no further!** This is as close as you can get in a London hotspot for sub £400k.

Why should you buy me?

Generously laid out over 727 square feet (67.5m2) of floorspace, the apartment boasts two equal doubles and 2 bathrooms, plus a huge open plan living/kitchen/dining space ready to entertain (when we’re allowed!).

Rarer still is the dual access (full length) balcony which stretches across the North West side of the property – perfectly positioned for instagrammable London sunsets.

The spare bathroom is a godsend for busy mornings, if you’re sharing or when you have guests, while the general spec is modern and sleek.

The building is on the corner of picturesque Sidney Road (hosting million-pound, period, square fronted, semis) and Beckenham Road, meaning you can almost literally roll out of bed and onto a multitude of public transport facilities being just 150 metres from Clock House Station (Zone 4) & 100 metres from Beckenham Road Tram Stop.

There is a choice of numerous local parks each offering different features and all within walking distance.

Despite being so close to so much (full list below), this particular apartment is super peaceful even with all windows/doors open, as it is the highest of three identical units (the best in the block IMO) which face the communal roof terrace at the back.

Being share of freehold, the owners of the flats do not pay ground rent and each have an equal stake in the running of the building, which is a key advantage over leasehold alternatives for numerous reasons.

The collective reserve fund (a joint savings account for the block for rainy days) is healthily stacked ensuring nothing can catch the residents out, which in fact has led to the service charge decreasing over recent years (currently at approx. £127pcm) to cover all the communal indulgences.

For other matters there is a residents Facebook group to ensure all are happy, and formal meetings are held once every 6 months to discuss the service charge and how the block is doing.

The parking is allocated (ready for the Batmobile), but being so close to the station many residents don’t drive, so if more than one space is needed a friendly chat with the neighbours will likely solve that conundrum.

A further rare bonus is the free on street parking on Sidney Road – which saves scrapping around for visitors permits despite being so close to the station. (Pay & display Mon-Fri between 10-12).

Walk down Beckenham Road for Beckenham High Street which includes late-night bars and superb restaurants (again listed below).

For commuters, it couldn’t be more convenient with buses available on Beckenham Road, plus:

Clock House Station linking to Lewisham, London Bridge, Cannon Street, Charing Cross & Waterloo East.

Kent House Station linking to Herne Hill, Brixton, London Victoria & Bromley South.

Beckenham Road Tram Stop linking to East Croydon, connecting to Gatwick Express and trains to Brighton.

Be quick on this one! I can’t see it sticking around.
