Property description

Every now and again a property becomes available which really is the pinnacle of its type. It is a rare event that seldom happens – but we are now able to offer you that opportunity.

This is a property unlike anything currently on the market, so having to compromise is no longer the issue. Inside, this spacious one bedroom period apartment has been well cared for by the current owner, offering fantastic living and entertaining space to really impress your family and friends. The rest of the property also doesn't disappoint with a well-appointed kitchen and generous double bedroom with a bathroom to relax in after a hard day at work. What will really impress is the elegance that only a property of this age will give – not just a box with square rooms!

On the outside, the location really doesn't get any better, being a stones through from Purley High Street were you can find some excellent local amenities including a vast array of shopping facilities, bars and restaurants and mainline train station.

What the Owner says:
When we first came to view the property we just couldn't believe how spacious and light the rooms were compared to everything else they viewed at the time.

The layout was also excellent and very different, with the rooms leading off a central hallway. What has also been brilliant is the location being so close to transport and shops.

It will be a sad day when it comes to handing over the keys but hope the new owners enjoy the property as much as we have.

  • Entrance Hall
  • Living Room 16'8 x 16'1 (5.08m x 4.91m)
