Spacious two bedroom lower ground floor flat, located on South Norwood High Street, just 2 minutes away from Norwood Junction train station with excellent links to central London. The flat consists of a spacious lounge, two good sized bedrooms, fitted kitchen, bathroom and a private patio garden.

Measurements (Approx):

Lounge: 21'5" x 12'7" (6.53m x 3.84m)

Kitchen: 12'7" x 7'6" (3.84m x 2.29m)

Bedroom One: 12'7" x 9'5" (3.84m x 2.87m)

Bedroom Two: 16'0" x 10'11" (4.88m x 3.33m)

Bathroom: 8'10" x 6'10" (2.69m x 2.08m)

The property will be purchased with the current tenants, let on an AST since 6/12/2017 for £1100 pcm. Therefore investors shall start receiving rental income immediately after legal formalities are completed.

The current lease is approx. 67 years remaining, and we will apply for an additional 90-year extension, under the 1993 Leasehold Reform Act. 
This will potentially add value* and increase the saleability of the property on exit.

There is also a possibility of easily creating an additional bedroom (to make it into a 3 bedroom flat) as well as upgrading the property before sale in the future. The projected sale price is not based on this. 

The property was previously sold for £170,000 at auction on 14/7/2017.


Why South Norwood?

Explaining why the area has become something of a property hot spot over the past few years, a spokesman for Townends estate agents said: "South Norwood is a popular location for families, first-time buyers and commuters, which means there is a fantastic mix of individuals who make up the vibrant local community.

"It's still one of the best value-for-money locations in the South East of England, and it's attractive to buyers as there are many excellent transport options in the area."  (source: Croydon Advertiser)

Also, the property is only a 10-minute drive to the proposed £1.4 bn Westfield Centre in Croydon, which will massively transform Croydon town centre. We are also expecting local property prices to rise significantly.
