"Retaining a number of original features such as remarkably maintained hardwood flooring and balustrades."
A classic three-bedroom Mid Century Modern townhouse with off-street parking, garage, private garden and direct access to secure communal gardens. Queens Court is situated off Foxgrove Road, close to Beckenham Junction (which runs services to London Victoria and London Blackfriars in around 20 minutes). Built in the early 1960s, the house was designed by architect Rodney J Allen for Gough Cooper. It has had only one previous owner and represents an exciting opportunity for refurbishment.
The house is situated at the end of an elegant row of nine houses set back from the road. Entry is via a parking area and sheltered porch. Internal accommodation extends to approximately 1,530 sq ft (not including garage) and is arranged over six split levels. The ground floor comprises an entrance hall with guest WC, under-stair storage and access to an integral garage.
On the first floor, through a timber-framed reeded-glass door, is an open-plan kitchen and dining room with sliding glazed doors to a terrace and steps down to a south-facing private paved garden for which there is also side access. Rising a split level at the front of the property is an expansive living room with glazed double doors to a front balcony. The house retains a number of original features such as remarkably maintained hardwood flooring in the dining and living rooms and hardwood balustrades.
On the second floor are two bedrooms, both with original built-in wardrobes, an airing cupboard and a shower room. The larger of the two bedrooms is L-shaped allowing for a separate study or dressing area. On the third floor is a further bedroom with built-in wardrobes, and a family bathroom.
At the rear of the property, beyond the private gardens, are communal lawns surrounded by trees. This was once land intended for development but due to difficulty of access, in a rare and fortunate turn of events, the land was sold to the residents of Queens Court. The sale of Freehold includes a strip of this ‘common’ land under a separate title.
The house can be found in Beckenham, a popular district of the London Borough of Bromley that lies south east of the capital’s centre. It is a short walk to Beckenham High Street, with its wide range of shops and other services, and to Beckenham Junction and Ravensbourne train stations. The former runs services to London Blackfriars in around 19 minutes, London Victoria in just 22 minutes, and London Bridge in 36 minutes. Ravensbourne station runs services to Elephant and Castle in around 25 minutes and London Blackfriars in approximately 31 minutes. Both stations are in Zone 4. The area is well served for schools, green spaces and leisure facilities including Beckenham Lawn Tennis Club.
Service Charge: approx. £500 per annum (includes maintenance of communal gardens and common areas)
