It's lovely to see the result of someone's vision and it is a pleasant surprise when looking at a modern home like this, to find that well thought improvements have been made.
This top floor apartment had all the things our clients were looking for on paper when they bought it, so may be something of a surprise to find that they have spent considerable time and money making improvements.
'We bought the flat because of where it was, not just the road but also the position in the building. We wanted to be on the top floor, so no one was above us, it just feels nicer that way doesn't it?'
They told us that there wasn't anything wrong with the flat when they chose it, 'it's just there were things we wanted, areas that we felt could and should be better.'
So how did they go about improving an already nice home?
'We changed both the bathroom and the en suite, they have underfloor heating now as well, which makes such a nice difference. The kitchen was fine but we had a different vision and changed it, plus we wanted different electrical sockets. There' a lot we did that you won't see as it's done behind the scenes.'
What you'll find today is an apartment that feels fresh, very modern and homely, the living room is wonderful, especially when the French doors to the ‘Juliet balcony’ are open and a gentle breeze ruffles the curtains on a sunny evening. The kitchen has a great look and feel to it.
The bathroom and en suite are easy to admire and there is storage around the apartment that makes life practical. The second bedroom has become a games room, something of a 'man cave' and may be perfect as such for you, a redecoration and re-purposing will show that it is a superb bedroom or wonderful office if you need somewhere to work from home, you may love to continue the grand tradition the room has been purposed for.
For anyone commuting to work, there are a number of stations within easy reach including Purley Oaks and South Croydon which can put London Bridge as little as just a nineteen-minute train journey away, whilst London Victoria can be from a twenty-six-minute train ride, the stations are between one and one and a half miles away depending on which you choose and the route you take.
Life is about more than accommodation and travelling to work. Great things about living here are the proximity of schools, take a stroll, when you have some free time, or a jog and you will come to Purley Way Playing Fields, an open green expanse with football pitches, cricket, changing rooms and toilets. There's a children’s playground too.
There's more to explore in the wider locale and you'll soon find how great an area this is to be in.Get in touch if you like this property.
