This beautifully presented two-bedroom apartment is situated on the top floor of Taymount Grange, a charming art deco block in Forest Hill designed by George Bertram Carter and built between 1935-36. The apartment is flooded with natural light and has far-reaching, treetop views towards Crystal Palace and the Kent countryside beyond through large original Crittal windows in each room. This lovely apartment retains a range of original features including doors, picture rails, cupboards and cast-iron radiators. Externally Taymount Grange benefits from extensive, well cared for, communal grounds, which include a barbecue area and even an area set aside for allotments.
Taymount Grange is to be found at the top of Taymount Rise and therefore offers a peaceful setting, which is only moments away from the centre of Forest Hill. Forest Hill itself offers a growing range of cafes, bars and restaurants as well as a library and Forest Hill Pools. The Horniman museum is also only a short walk from the apartment and there you will find the weekly Farmers’ Market on a Saturday.
Forest Hill railway station (which provides direct services into London Bridge (c.17 minutes) and London Victoria (c.40 minutes) is less than a 10 minute walk from the property. You can also access the London Overground at Forest Hill with its connections to Canary Wharf and the West End via the Jubilee line. Frequent bus services are also available on London Road at the bottom of Taymount Rise, which can take you to Peckham or Lordship Lane, East Dulwich in 10 minutes or so or directly into central London.
You enter the building at ground floor level and take the lift to the third floor. Upon leaving the lift you turn left and the door to the apartment is at the far end of the lobby. Upon entering the apartment you find yourself in a small vestibule with stripped wooden flooring that extends throughout most of the apartment. Here there is access to a useful large storage cupboard as well as the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden units with a white worksurface. There is an integrated oven and hob, fridge and freezer with space for a freestanding washing machine and dishwasher. The kitchen has dark slate tiles to the floor and a large window looking down onto the communal gardens.
Returning to the vestibule a further door leads in to the reception room. This is a spacious and bright room with a large (almost full width) window looking out onto the lovely gardens. This attractive room has a period picture rail and radiator.
From the reception room a corridor, in which there is a range of original built-in storage, leads to the two bedrooms and the bathroom. The first bedroom, which is the smaller of two doubles, is immediately on your right. This pretty room has a large window looking down onto the communal grounds and a further useful range of original built-in storage.
Next along the hallway is the master bedroom. This lovely room has dual aspect windows, which provide sweeping, far-reaching views. Again there is a period picture rail and radiator.
At the end of the apartment is the bathroom. This is fitted with a white three-piece suite comprising bath with over bath shower, WC and hand basin. There is black and white period style tiling to the floor, more modern ceramic tiling to the walls and also a heated towel rail.
This is a lovely apartment in an iconic block. It is well located for all local amenities and your early viewing is recommended.
