What you will love about this home

Croydon has lots to offer mainly excellent travel connections to The City of London and the coast.
A fast train from East Croydon will get you into London Victoria, London Bridge, or Blackfriars, within 20minutes. To drive it takes about an hour in London traffic. Also superb links to LONDON GATWICK AIRPORT within half hour on one direct fast train. Outside East Croydon train station is a London black taxi rank, and it is around £8 to my place.
I'm an 8minute walk from South Croydon train station and Buses and tram stops all within 10 minutes walking distance.
Croydon has two large shopping centres The Whitgift Centre and Centrale .
We have lots of parks Lloyds and Croham Hurst a stone throw away from my door. A train or bus ride to Crystal Palace Park with the sports arena and Olympic pool.
Croydon has ample hotels Swimming pools and Libraries and golf courses.
There is also Surrey Street market for fruit veg salad and all kinds of food and things.
The amount of restaurants along the High Street in South Croydon can only mean one thing ? That you are simply spoilt for choice.
It's perfect here just far enough away for peace and quiet and close enough to local town and City of London to be easily accessed
There is a good size 4 metre long private balcony with beautiful sunrises and sunsets looking north towards London and the Shard, where you are welcome to smoke it seats four comfortably if you fancy tea outside. Roadside parking is not a problem here.

What you will love in the neighborhood

My home is a one double/bedroom and all areas are very spacious.
The bedroom and lounge room are both over 20square feet each leaving ample space :
I am not keen to accept young children here as this is a very quiet of block of 15 apartments I also have elderly neighbours who like peace and quiet. This is a second floor apartment with no elevator! Therefore you have to carry your luggage up 22 stairs, so you have to be a little fit. I think the consolation is worth it once you're in here with the open view that's private and not overlooked.
15 apartments in block so it's not huge.

Lawn to the front all fenced off this is not showing on Google map and neighbourhood.
There is also a back lawn for sitting in sun with tall conifer trees.
I have a four metre north facing private balcony looking towards London and The Shard at London Bridge on the horizon. The warm evenings can be spent quietly on the balcony watching the beautiful sunsets with a glass of wine maybe?
