A characterful 2nd floor 1 bedroom flat with private roof terrace forming part of the popular Victorian Pullens Buildings. The property has excellent transport links and is minutes from the Zone 1 tube in the Elephant and Castle regeneration area. Ideal for professional or a couple. Sole agent.
The Victorian Pullens Estate where this property is located is an important historic enclave within one of the most rapidly developing parts of London. Charlie Chaplin lived here, and so did Naomi Campbell. Parts of the film The Kings Speech were filmed here, making use of the wonderfully preserved external facade and the evocative interiors. Giles Fraser has written about the community spirit of the area in The Guardian, and referred to it as 'The most magical of places'. Who would fail to enjoy a capuccino in the Electric Elephant cafe, just around the corner?
This particular 1double bedroom apartment is located on the 2nd floor of the building, and benefits from having a large private terrace. There is also a communal terrace available on the roof of the building, accessed via the main staircase. Many of the original features of the building are still in place, with high ceilings, original stripped wooden floors, lovely sash windows, and a beautiful fireplace in the reception room.
The practicalities of living here are excellent. The property is very close to both Kennington tube station and all the transport links of the Elephant and Castle which is in Zone 1. Bicycle sheds are available to rent if required, and of course journeys into the centre of town are very short from here. The flat benefits from an extremely low service charge of approximately £600pa, and the Council Tax is Band A - just £805pa. This property offers all the advantages of living close to central London, without any of the normal financial penalties. Leasehold, with approx 100 years remaining
