  • Bedrooms: 2
A well-proportioned, bright, stylish and functional, 2 double bedroom ground floor maisonette with direct access to a landscaped South East facing private rear garden. The flat reflects the Scandinavian style of its owner.  Situated in a well-maintained mid-century building on this popular residential street close to Honor Oak Park station.

The maisonette benefits from plenty of living space, its own front door with a handy secure porch, an abundance of storage throughout as well as a garage and double glazing throughout. The property offers well thought out floorplan with the kitchen and living/dining rooms to one side of the property and the two double bedrooms and bathroom on the other.

The building is set back from the street with the entrance shielded behind a wall and mature shrubs and landscaping offering a good amount of privacy.

The property has a handy enclosed porch for leaving shoes, brollies and for accepting deliveries.

From the front door a hallway leads down past the bedrooms opening into the generous open plan reception room. New laminate flooring runs throughout the property apart from the kitchen and bathroom which are tiled with underfloor heating. There are generous cupboards in the hall, both under the stairs and a recent built-in cupboard for storing large items.

The kitchen has a contemporary style and is located at the front of the property. The room is fitted with grey wall cupboards and base units, and wooden work surfaces, and has an induction hob with extractor fan connected to an exterior vent above, and under-counter fitted oven.  There is room for a washing machine and dishwasher, and the kitchen also houses the new Vailant boiler. The sink unit is housed under the window offering views out to the street.  Underfloor heating ensures the kitchen is always cosy.

The kitchen lies off the open plan reception room.  The reception room is a very generous size with plenty of space for a large sofa, dining table, and sideboard.  The reception room is flooded with light from the large sliding door leading out into the garden.

The bedrooms are both spacious doubles. The rear bedroom has a wall of fitted wardrobes and nice views over the garden.

Twixt the bedrooms is the family bathroom with underfloor heating. The walls are fully tiled as is the floor. There is a new double shower unit with overhead rainwater shower head as well as a more conventional shower. The sink is inset into a contemporary vanity unit. A window to the side of the building sits above the sink and gives natural light and additional ventilation.

The private rear garden is newly decked with beds for growing fruit and vegetables as well as plenty of space for pots, children’s play space, and a table and chairs.  It is a real suntrap, and as such there is a modern canopy installed above the sliding doors to provide a shaded covered space to eat outside during the summer months.  If offers a great outdoor reception area. The whole garden area is fenced off offering plenty of privacy, and there is a secure side exit to the communal driveway.

The property comes with a garage, which has light and power.

The property is within the catchment area of the popular Fairlawn primary school.
