Why should you buy me?
You said you wanted a new home with nothing to do, as much space as poss, in a great location and with a South facing garden… all for less than £350k – well you’ve found it!
This impressive 1050 ft2 (97.5 m2) end of terrace maisonette on Lancey Close in Charlton boasts oodles of space which is almost incomparable to anything else on in the local market.
Built like a house and split over three floors, including a garage plus utility – this property needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.
The existing owners (a young couple, with 2 littlens, already moved to Cardiff) have gone above and beyond to create a warm and welcoming abode for new owners to adopt.
Starting at the entrance on the first/raised ground floor, you’re immediately in a bright & airy home with a full-length view through to the sunny garden or up the stairs.
The modernised fully fitted separate kitchen is on the left and retains the serving hatch for added quirkiness, while the lounge stretches the remainder of the space with two big 1.3-metre-wide windows looking out to the garden.
Being almost directly south facing, the garden gets the sun for almost the whole day and features rear access.
From the reception there is a basement like door & stairwell, which takes you down into the ground floor utility & private 5.12-metre-long garage – ideal for anyone who needs a practical and accessible space to park a small car/motorbike or for tools/a workshop (as its been used most recently).
Heading back up two storeys, the bedrooms are both evenly sized double bedrooms (with fitted mirrored wardrobes) and are separated by a generous landing hosting the bathroom, WC & laundry area.
Mr is a carpenter, so has built both a convenient area to store the washing machine and a suspended drying rack to maximise the space above the stairs.
The loft is accessible from the landing with a drop-down ladder however is not technically included on the title (despite the owners getting permission to install a new boiler up there in Nov 2014 which has been gas safety certified in Dec 2019).
New white PVC double glazed windows were installed in 2008 and are secondary glazed in the bedrooms for improved insulation.
Being ex local authority, the maisonette has ridiculously low ground rent (just £10pa) and low annual service charges - most recently just £613.85pa with a 2021 estimate of £644pa.
Lancey Close is fantastically located between the much-admired Maryon Park and the Thames, just off Woolwich Road (effectively hosting 2 large retail parks) – ideal for those looking for convenience and to be close to green spaces or areas of interest (full list below the service charge breakdown).
The flat itself is less than 1200m from Zone 3 Charlton Station (Google says 15mins walk) offering direct links into London Bridge, Cannon Street, Charing Cross, Blackfriars, Waterloo, St Pancras & Farringdon to name a few. 4 trains per hour head to Cannon Street (via London Bridge), 2 trains per hour to Charing Cross (via Lewisham) & 2 trains per hour to Luton (via St Pancras International, St Albans City and Luton Airport).
Buses (161 North Greenwich to Chislehurst, 472 North Greenwich to Thamesmead, 177 Peckham to Thamesmead & 180 Lewisham to Belvedere) stop just outside the development on Woolwich Road making it easy to bus to Charlton Station in less than 7 minutes (Google).
Woolwich & North Greenwich are also easily reached with even greater connections while it’s no secret that the highly anticipated ‘Crossrail’ is going to have a massive impact on Woolwich & the surrounding area.
