Rare to the market, a Victorian garden flat in the Thorburn Square conservation area. This property is superbly situated in historic Bermondsey: Commuting to the heart of London becomes a doddle from here with walking a real possibility (1.2 miles to City hall and 1.4 miles to More London). Cycling and public transport options are equally attractive. At the weekend, a Saturday morning spent in nearby Maltby Street Market is always fun, and the fine eateries and galleries of Bermondsey Street are only a little more distant. This area has been soaring in popularity over the last few years and is still truly on the up.
The Thorburn Square conservation area recognises the special architectural and historic interest of the Victorian properties around the Square. Built between 1865 - 1875, and with road names celebrating the battles of the Crimea War, these properties were built for the skilled craftsmen working in the local railway yards and tanneries. This charming garden flat benefits from a cosy front reception with working period fireplace and beautiful original sash windows. This leads past a light and bright double bedroom, to the spacious eat in kitchen. A side door here leads off to a courtyard area that is perfect for storing bicycles or anything else. Moving towards the rear there is a single bedroom to the right, storage closet in the hall, and a modern bathroom with a white suite and further storage off to the left. A rear door leads onto the private south facing garden that is an oasis of calm. An area of decking leads onto a lawn surrounded by mature plantings, and then a large studio room completes the generous accommodation. Long Lease. Sole agents. Viewing highly recommended.
