This two-bedroom flat in Tulse Hill is bright, fresh and inviting, making it an ideal bolthole you'll be glad to return to each day.
Elmcourt Road, Tulse Hill, 2 Bed. Flat
A retreat from the demands of urban life, this two-bedroom first-floor flat has the right ingredients to lift the mood. The kitchen's clean lines feel calming in the open-plan living space, and the oak wooden floor adds texture and warmth. The crisp palette, throughout, is a tonic for busy days and a blank canvas prepped for imagination.
Being purpose-built –– the building was fully updated in 2015 –– the flat has contemporary appeal (including an energy rating to be proud of). However, thanks to the sash windows, the building is in keeping with the period properties on either side. There are some well-considered design details to enjoy. The versatile bar in the kitchen and the bedroom bay window add character and valuable space. The layout is practical, and happily, the bedrooms are equally sized, making them adaptable for various needs –– there isn't a box room in sight.
Elmcourt Road is within striking distance of two neighbourhoods. Situated close to the main throng of Tulse Hill with all the independent coffee shops and decent pubs you could possibly need on your doorstep, but also minutes from the thriving community of West Norwood, which, among other draws, has a monthly street market festival to enjoy and explore.

THE OWNERS SAY
Tulse Hill has transformed since moving in, and I have so enjoyed seeing the updates in West Norwood High Street. Locally, I love the Railway Tavern, and I can’t resist the pastel de natas at the Florentine Bakery.
The property itself is on a lovely, quiet street. And when you need a change of scenery, you’re not far from Brockwell Park, a gorgeous expanse of green that is home to ponds, ancient oaks, a walled 'Old English' flower garden, Brockwell Lido and wide, open meadows.
