A spacious one-bedroom apartment, in a Victorian conversion on a beautiful tree lined street, a short walk from West Norwood Station.
Situated on the first floor, the apartment benefits from a generous reception room with large sash window overlooking a substantial row of trees. The double bedroom faces the back garden and has an abundance of potential storage space. A separate galley kitchen resides at the back with a large window and storage cupboard housing the water tank. Additional storage can be found in the hallway.
To the side of the property there are three parking spaces, shared with the remaining two apartments in the block. For friends and family visiting, there is on street parking in the surrounding area.
Gipsy Road is named after the gipsies who used to inhabit the area. Samuel Pepys recorded in his diary in 1668 of his meeting with ‘the gypsies at Lambeth’ in the area.
Today, West Norwood, has seen an influx of buyers to the area due to its affordability for new families and first-time buyers; priced out of the surrounding areas. Not only does the pretty High Street have fantastic bars and Gastro pubs like The Rosendale, The Sugar Bar, and The Great North Wood but easy access into town via West Norwood Station (Zone 3) will see you into Victoria in 25mins and London Bridge in 30mins.
For groceries, apart from the local artisan deli’s such as Beamish and McGlue, there is a Sainsbury’s local, The Co-operative and an Iceland. Whilst West Norwood Health and Leisure Centre is a few minutes from the station offering gym facilities, fitness classes and a 6 lane pool.
In addition, once a month on Sunday’s, West Norwood holds ‘Feast’, a volunteer run event supporting local businesses and entrepreneurs with an Artisan market, Food Fair, Retro Village and Fresh ‘n’ Green area.
Also, this October Lambeth council review final plans for a joint four-screen Picturehouse cinema and public library being discussed for Nettlefold Hall, a refurbished Sixties building.
