Mr Clarke thinks :
Having a garden and off street parking is great for a busy family life.
This 1970’s townhouse is ready for a new lease of life; think Scandi chic, exposed original floorboards, original brick fireplace for the winter months and the slatted wood and glass balustrade - a hidden gem ready to be stripped back to its original mahogany. We are so excited about this one that we’ve teamed up with the lovely The Gentleman Architect who will be offering a free design consultation for the lucky new owners.
The current layout works well for modern life; downstairs can be a work from home office or can easily be made into a large double guest bedroom with ensuite. Whilst the top floor offers two equal size double bedrooms, plus a single with stunning views of Crystal Palace and the surrounding areas.
Mrs Clarke loves :
Watching the daylight flood into the living room each day.
The open plan living room and kitchen sit on the middle floor, with the South East glazing benefiting from far reaching views and drenching the space with morning sun; the perfect spot for that first coffee of the day!
Meanwhile the North West view is onto the garden where you can enjoy the remarkably peaceful surroundings and the evening sun. Think BBQ, Parakeets and the setting sun, set within a blissfully quiet residential area. All of this is on the doorstep of the Crystal Place triangle, where you can swap your tranquil spot for the buzz of the many local shops, pubs and restaurants.
- Three words : Contemporary. Comfortable. Design.
Our favourite part
The different views outside each window (and there's plenty of them!)
Buckleigh Way sits within a lovely quiet residential area, yet close to all the action of Crystal Place. In just under a ten minute stroll you can be nursing a pint in the White Hart, or perhaps shopping for retro furniture and accessories, perfectly matched to your new 1970s home, at one of the many local antique shops in the area.
Crystal Place just keeps growing in popularity and recent years have seen an abundance of new indie shops and restaurants open up, alongside some longstanding institutions such as the lovely Joanna’s and Urban Orient, arguably two of the best eats in SE19.
If making the most of your local area is your favourite weekend past time, then you are in luck. SE19 has everything you require, from Inaspace Gallery for Urban Contemporary Art, Everyman Cinema for the latest indie films and blockbusters and some real hidden gems such as Crystal Palace Antiques, simply the best emporium of mid-century furniture in London.
Want to escape the crowds, then head over to Crystal Palace Park and enjoy the fantastic views, the quirky Victorian dinosaur sculptures or sip a coffee from the most architecturally exquisite park café in London - Brown & Green. We wish every Park Café was like this!
