This two bedroom modern apartment on Joseph Hardcastle Close is nothing other than 570 Sqf of first time buyer's heaven.
Here's why: The present custodian has owned it from new, and has lavished so much care and attention in nurturing it into what we see today, which is one of the most tastefully and immaculately finished properties I've been fortunate to list for sale on the development.
For the young professional first time buyer it has it all. Enter from the communal hallway into a warm, welcoming hallway. Kick off your shoes, hang your coat up in the closet and saunter into the fabulous living space. South facing floor to ceiling windows flood the lounge with masses of light. The socially arranged twin sofa set up works really well, and there's still room for a dining table and chairs.
From here, an archway leads into the kitchen. Lots more light in here, you get an array of high gloss white wall and base units, divided by a natural timber worktop and brick style white tiling. Integrated appliances include a smart induction hob and stainless steel oven, and there's space for the big fridge freezer and washing machine.
Back into the hallway and we move into the main bedroom. A tranquil space of great proportions, with a built in double wardrobe.
Next up is bedroom 2. A handy guest room, study, work from home, or rent to a mate space.
Opposite is the bathroom, again having been transformed from the original into the stylish space you see now with a crisp, white three piece suite with over bath shower, bright white tiling contrasted with black mosaic splash-back and a funky black towel rad.
Outside there's an allocated parking space and well maintained communal grounds
So, what's the buzz? Joseph Hardcastle Close is arguably one of the smartest of the modern developments in SE14, and is impeccably placed for transport, with New Cross Gate a 10 minute walk away.
Here you're whisked into London Bridge in one stop (7 mins) and the 'Ginger Line' will have you in Docklands in 15 mins, or up to the City, West End, Stratford, and the cool stops along to Highbury & Islington in not too much longer. Plenty of buses down the Old Kent Rd to the Elephant and into town too.
We await the arrival of the Bakerloo Line in the hopefully not too distant future too...
Local Green space is in abundance, with Eckington Gardens around the corner, and the two Telegraph Hill parks up the hill (brilliant Saturday Farmer's market), or Folkestone Gardens just the other side of the tracks (decent Bacon butties and coffee from the park cafe!).
Plenty of things to do around such as the Rosemary Organic Hungarian restaurant on New Cross Rd or the Telegraph Pub on Dennett's Rd for a decent Sunday roast. The London Peculiar by New Cross Station is fab, and wander down to the recently re-vamped Deptford Yard for a rummage through the markets and some excellent bars and eateries. The Blackbird Bakery and Mama Dough by Queens Rd station are worth a try too.
Maritime Greenwich with its Royal Deer Park, and Blackheath are a short bus/cycle ride away.
