Property description

At around 971 sqft, this larger-than-average, 2 bedroom hall floor period flat - part of an imposing and well-maintained period property - comes with a garage.
Located in the popular Lawrie Park Triangle in Sydenham, the flat is presented in great order and boasts high ceilings, tasteful décor throughout and a communal garden at the back. The building itself is set back from the road. You approach it through a large shared front garden. Ideal for entertaining is the dining room at the back which opens out to a sleek, modern kitchen with integrated appliances. The living room is at the front and has beautiful walnut wood flooring and in-built shelving in both alcoves. The bedrooms are at either end of the flat and have the same walnut wood flooring. The bathroom has a simple yet stylish white suite. In the communal entrance hall are large cupboards which can be used for storage. Overall, the flat has a warm and welcoming feel aided by double glazing and central heating throughout. The garage is at the back and there is a decked area next to this which belongs to this flat.
Lawrie Park Crescent is a quiet, tree-lined road. It is well-placed for Sydenham station from where there are fast and frequent national rail services into central London as well as London Overground services to Shoreditch and Highbury and Islington. Penge East is also close to hand for mainline services into Victoria. The high street in Sydenham offers a wide range of restaurants, cafés and bars. There's a Co-Op for groceries as well as several other convenience stores. A couple of restaurants of note include Trattoria Rafaelle, a popular Italian restaurant with a good daily specials board, and the Gurkhas which offers excellent Nepalese specialties. The boutique shops and restaurants in Crystal Palace are also within easy reach.
As for green spaces, Crystal Palace Park is nearby. It's home to the National Sports centre where there is a swimming pool and athletics track. It's also where you can see the iconic model dinosaurs – they may be anatomically questionable but are still a sight to behold.
