Well, there’s another reason too. A viewing day has been announced for this coming Saturday (14th July). So if you want to get a proper look at it (and you are in a position to buy), why not check it out? But first, you can check it out here.

The striking period block dates back to around 135 or 1936, designed by George Bertram Carter in a modernist / art deco style that is still reminiscent of its original era.

The white facade certainly helps on that front (it has recently been repainted), as do the large and original Crittall windows. There is also a refurbished communal area too and a wonderful 1930s staircase within.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to hike up all the stairs to get to this top floor apartment, unless you are trying to keep fit. There is a lift to all floors and an intercom system to save your legs and energy levels.

As I said, this is a top floor flat and as such, offers up some wonderful views over southeast London through its vintage windows. It is also a rather stylish living space too, having been renovated to a very high standard.

I know the term ‘renovation’ can be a double-edged sword when it comes to period builds, but the owners have done a great job here of marrying together the original character of Taymount Grange with some more contemporary finishes. Everything you would expect of a modern apartment, but with a look of something from the 1930s. Retaining and refurbishing the original doors, cupboards, and cast-iron radiators certainly helps.

Note that there is a service charge of £3,000 per annum to consider, as well as the asking price of £460,000. As I said, an pen day coming up if you want to check it out properly.
