Roomy, light-filled and exceptionally quiet flat perfect for the commuter who needs to get into town fast, but also wants peace, space and greenery at home. Set back from a quiet tree-lined street is this beautiful, dual aspect, Victorian conversion featuring 2 double bedrooms, off street parking and a secluded communal garden with mature flowering trees. Velux windows in the lounge, kitchen and master bedroom flood the rooms with natural light making the whole flat feel airy and bright. Perfect for a first time buyer or investor, this would make a great first step on the property ladder. Just a 7 minute walk to Shortlands station, from where it's a speedy 26 minutes to Victoria. The many attractions of Bromley are nearby, through a pretty family-friendly park, with The Glades Shopping Centre packed with everything from restaurants to clothing outlets, it also boasts a new nine-screen cinema and a recently revamped leisure centre. Or check out the lively nightlife of Beckenham just a short bus ride up the road. Bromley South station is close with even faster trains into London or out to Ashford and the coast. For the forward thinking, 'Ofsted Outstanding' schools aren't hard to find either, with 2 Primary schools within 0.4 miles and a secondary school just a mile away. Comments from the vendor: (1) What do you love most about your home? This flat is very light and so quiet - the main sound is birdsong, including owls and woodpeckers. We've really enjoyed watching sunsets from the sofa - and rosy sunrises on the trees from the bedroom when we 're up early enough! It's lovely to be able to spread a rug on the lawn and have a glass of fizz at the end of a long week - and feel a long way from London. The neighbours are great and everyone cooperates well - so much we are planning to buy the freehold together. (2) Why are you moving? Only because I have fallen in love and we want to combine our lives (3) What do you love about the area? Shortlands is amazingly convenient for commuting into central London, but at the same time only a short walk to beautiful bluebell woods in Ravensbourne. Just past the station, Shortlands itself has a great chippie (The Village Fish and Chips) and The Shortlands Tavern, a friendly neighbourhood pub with a tempting beer garden. For nearby shopping and entertainment you're spoilt for choice between Bromley and Beckenham (which both have a large Waitrose) but we have loved being able to hop on a train down to the Kent countryside or coast - try Otford for a delightful weekend walk. It's also dangerously easy to get the train direct to St Pancras for the Eurostar, Paris and beyond!
