Property description

Manchester Durman is pleased to present to market this recently refurbished and chain free 1 bedroom flat situated in a quiet residential estate called Friars Wood off Fernwood in Forestdale. It is a 1st floor flat and part of 6 flats in the block. Everything has been newly fitted so it comes with a new boiler and heating system with Hive control, a new and modern kitchen/ diner, a new bathroom, and new carpets. All the kitchen appliances and blinds are included in the price, and the flat benefits from Sky and Virgin cabling. The vendor has extended the lease to 180 years remaining and there is no ground rent (a peppercorn). The service charge on this property is approximately £1,100 p.a which includes the maintenance of the block and the communal gardens. The flat comes with a single garage en bloc and on street parking is freely available from 7am to 7pm. After 7pm a parking permit is required which costs around £15 p.a. This property would appeal to a first time buyer with no stamp duty to pay for them and for non surcharged UK resident buyers there would be no stamp duty for a completion before 1st October 2021 (we recommend buyers seek their own accountants' advice). Early viewing is recommended.

Property Location

The property is well connected to London by bus and tram (5 minutes walk or less by bus) to central Croydon (about 15 minutes) and then from East Croydon BR to central London (about 17 minutes) so a car is not essential.

Addington Park is a short walk way and very nice for relaxing in the summer and is just opposite Gravel Hill.
