On the top floor of a popular purpose built block is this fabulous and recently refurbished property which is ideal for first time buyers. The flat comprises a large open living room which leads to an immaculate and fully fitted kitchen. There are two good bedrooms and a family bathroom. The property has been dramatically improved throughout, with particular care going into the bathroom and kitchen refit alongside new wiring, boiler and double glazed windows. What the owner says: What do you love most about your home? I love being able to open the double doors on to the reception room in the summer. It expands an already generously sized room and allows a nice cool breeze right through. Being on the top floor and end of the terrace means the flat is exceptionally quiet, with the bedroom being particularly so. There is nobody above, so noise from footsteps or dining room chairs scraping along the floor is non-existent. Instead, there is an absolutely huge amount of storage space in the loft under the eaves. Almost everything in the flat has been recently replaced, renovated or redecorated, so it′s a fresh and modern interior combined with peace of mind in knowing that the electrics are up to code and the boiler should be good for decades to come. Why are you moving? A combination of wanting to be closer to work and a feeling of closure. The flat needed a lot of love when I bought it and it′s now in a great condition, so it′s time for the next chapter. What do you love about the area? The road the flat is on is a very quiet one, as it′s only used by local residents. It’s a short walk to Addiscombe High street, which is thriving. A wide range of shops, cafes (The Tram Stop being a fave) and takeaways can be found there. The tram itself makes it easy to get into Croydon and stops right outside Box Park with its huge range of eateries. It′s a good place to meet friends at the weekend or after work as there is something there for everyone. Two huge parks (South Norwood Country & Lloyd park) are nearby and great spots for a picnic or walk without having to travel all the way to ′the countryside′ to find some green space. For drivers there is an allocated parking space, and Croydon is in a decent spot to punch through the M25 towards the Kent coast for day trips. Travel connections elsewhere are well served by Norwood Junction, which runs fast trains to London Bridge and from East Croydon there are direct trains to Gatwick Airport.
