This classic mid-century modern three / four-bedroom townhouse with garden and off-street parking forms part of an attractive terrace located on a quiet residential close near the Crystal Palace Triangle. The house is a fine example of a series of small developments designed and built by Taylor Woodrow, a private housing company that grew from a family business founded in 1921.
The house is arranged over three floors, and provides exceptionally bright, flexible accommodation. The ground floor, originally taken up in part by an internal garage, has been fully converted into an open-plan living space, currently configured as a self-contained guest suite with access to the patio garden.
On the first floor is a well-proportioned double-aspect reception room, with leafy views over the back garden from a Juliet balcony, and a separate modern kitchen. The second floor contains two double bedrooms, both with plenty of built-in storage, a study / third bedroom and a family bathroom. There is a loft space, which is already boarded and has potential to be converted into a further bedroom and bathroom.
In addition to the private garden, there is around an acre of communal gardens that stretch behind the terrace, a share of which comes with the house. There is also direct access to Westow Park from the close.
Crystal Palace occupies a privileged position in the topography of London, one of the highest points in the city, at 367 feet. The hub of the community is the central triangle formed by the one-way system of Church Road, Westow Hill and Westow Street, lined with pubs, restaurants like Joanna’s and Exhibition Rooms, and independent shops. Crystal Palace is well known for its English Heritage Grade-II listed park, one of the largest in South London and home to the National Sports Centre.
There are a number of well-regarded schools in the area. The Gipsy Hill Federation runs three primary schools in Crystal Palace and Gipsy Hill, all of which are highly sought after. There are a range of independent schools in nearby Dulwich.
Crystal Palace and Gipsy Hill stations run services to Victoria and London Bridge up to six times an hour. Canary Wharf is around 24 minutes away (via the Jubilee line from Canada Water).
