Sitting in the eaves of a handsome Edwardian villa, this beautiful two-bedroom flat in Honor Oak Park is full of ‘old world’ atmosphere.

Honor Oak Park, Honor Oak, 2 Bed. Flat


Under offer


This cosy yet spacious two-bedroom apartment spanning multiple floors is part of a grand detached building. Split across two levels and joined via an impressive central staircase, this gorgeous home is roomy, light and romantic. It is also just moments from Honor Oak station.

Once through the elegant entrance porch, the flat is accessed via a winding staircase with a huge lightwell at the top, inviting natural light deep into the centre of the flat. The second floor has one bedroom, complete with a pretty arched window and original fireplace, as well as the bathroom; both of which share sunny south-facing views. The upper level has another south-facing bedroom as well as a super-sized living room with a huge central ceiling skylight and plenty of space for entertaining. Off the living room is the kitchen-diner; a modern Shaker-style kitchen and a stunning original arched window, framing the dining area perfectly.

Honor Oak Park is a popular south-east London spot and it’s easy to see why - with quick links into town, plenty of parks and too many wonderful restaurants, coffee shops and bars to mention. Though Honor Oak Vintner wine shop, Miss Margarita sourdough pizzeria and café, and Indian restaurant Babur are definitely amongst locals’ favourites.

It is with great sadness that my beautiful flat goes up for sale, but it is the right time! There is something very special about this flat which has given me a happy five years. It’s flooded with light as soon as the sun comes out and has a beautiful, leafy view out of each window.

The location is perfect with Honor Oak Park high street on your doorstep and you can make the train with four minutes to spare in the morning. But there’s also a designated parking space on the driveway - even if you don’t own a car, it’s super handy for visitors.

The Honor Oak pub is an excellent spot for food and drink as well as Two Spoons café around the corner and Grounds and Grapes for weekend brunch. Plus, a little further afield, just under a mile away, is the famous Horniman Museum and Gardens - an absolute gem. I really hope someone enjoys the space, light and views as much as I have done!

1 Jones of Brockley

Your one-stop shop for everything and anything yummy. Pick up store cupboard staples, something special for dinner or the best of the best in picky bits. And don’t worry if you overload (it’s easily done) - they deliver!

2 Malaysian Deli

Loved by locals, and for good reason. The staff are friendly, the food reasonably priced and most importantly, it wins hands down on the flavour front.

3 Horniman Museum and Gardens

This local gem is always popular, almost like a mini natural history museum. The museum itself houses an aquarium, thousands of stuffed animals including the ‘celebrity’ giant walrus, musical instruments and anthropological artefacts collected from around the world. In the beautiful landscaped gardens are a Butterfly House and an animal walk with alpacas, sheep and chickens. There are wide reaching views of the London skyline from the Bandstand and on Sundays local producers sell their wares here.

4 Peckham Rye Park & Common

Wandering through Peckham Rye Common in 1767, William Blake had a vision of “a tree filled with angels, bright angelic wings bespangling every bough like stars.” Angels may be thin on the ground these days, but you’ll still find a great café, adventure playground and the beautiful Sexby Garden, with its fragrant rose beds and wisteria-clad pergola.

5 Joyce

There’s nothing nicer than a post-walk tipple, and after a amble up Hilly Fields (the clue’s in the name) a slurp at Joyce’s will be well-deserved. A decent selection of drinks in a friendly neighbourhood bar, what could be nicer?
