Description

Very cleverly designed across two floors and well shielded form the traffic with its double glazing and large triple aspect first floor windows in the living room and tall windows in the single bedroom which has enough space for a chest of drawers and cupboard. The property is also served by gas and there is gas fired central heating. The living space is large enough to serve as a lounge and dining area all in one and the kitchen is conveniently at one end with space for plumbing and a washing machine. The access is from the main high street and is shared by only one other flat. The flats above this historic parade which was built-in the 1930s were originally built to serve the shop keepers are very popular with renters owing to being in reach by foot of all the essentials, in fact a car is not required for living in this location. The flat was converted within the last 20 years and has been well looked after with modern kitchen and bathroom not requiring updating and decorated to a high standard throughout. There are lit stairs leading to the mezzanine floor which is in use as a bedroom and dressing area but it could just as easily be used as a study or as a gym or a yoga area or arts and crafts studio which would be perfect for the amount of light that it gets. Most of the two bedroom flats above the shops in the parade are one level so this makes excellent use of the height of the original building and its large loft space and gives something quite unexpected and special. There is a loft hatch in the upper bedroom giving additional storage. There are 118 years remaining on the lease and the ground rent is currently 200 p.a. rising to 400 p.a. in 19 years' time approx. then 25 years' thereafter 800 p.a. Service charge is paid on an as and when necessary basis.

The Location

A most unusual and appealing bright and spacious split level flat above offices on the historic Sanderstead Cranleigh Parade, one of the highest points in the South East with all the shops one needs a short walk away and the Gresham Primary School opposite. The Flat gets the sun from just before midday throughout the afternoon and the upper floor with its three large velux wndows is positioned perfectly to make the most of that with the light entering and filling the rest of the property. Waitrose is a 5 minute walk away. Whilst there is no parking the 403 bus runs every few minutes and stops 50 yards away and goes to central Croydon via Sanderstead train station (about 7 mins) where it stops outside. Open parks are aplenty with Sanderstead main recreation ground 100 yards away and a closer wooded park known as the Gruffy even closer overlooking the historic Sanderstead pond and 13th Century All Saints Church the perfect place to sit and unwind, read or watch the wildfowl on a Sunday morning. There is even a Costa coffee shop in the Cranleigh Parade to pick up a coffee first! A little further (about 10 min. walk) is the 140 acre Kings Wood, renowned for its blue bells which connects Sanderstead to the nearby village of Selsdon. The 403 bus stop in the other direction is equally close and terminates at Warlingham Sainsbury's where there are village pubs and further connections leading on to the Downs and Westerham village famous for Churchill's Chartwell House which is only a further 15 mins by bus or car approx. Sanderstead has a choice of very popular Primary Schools and further afield there is the currently outstanding ofsted rated Riddlesdown collegiate (11 to 18). The Village is a hub of the community with lots of local clubs and societies from amdram to the Scouts and Guides clubs, church activities, mother and baby groups and a choice of nurseries.
