Athena House is comprised of seven stunning two-bedroom apartments in Purley, South London. The modern, homely design incorporates state-of-the-art technology throughout each apartment, high-end security systems, off-street parking, outdoor space and much more.
Internally, each apartment features high-spec finishes and top-of-the-range appliances. Ground-floor dwellings are all blessed by gardens whilst the other apartments in the building feature balcony space – all with external lighting.
Purley started life as an agricultural community until development began in the late 1800’s. This saw the area evolve in to a beautiful, leafy London garden village, offering a tranquil retreat for city workers in London. As travel in to London has become faster and more frequent, its rural beauty has been complimented by a more lively scene in the centre of the village with a number of bars, cafes and restaurants popping up to serve the locality. Today the area features everything a resident could wish for from a popular London suburb whilst offering a less-crowded alternative to the likes of nearby Croydon.
Purley itself is well-served with pubs such as The Jolly Farmers and the Foxley Hatch just two examples of many. The scene over in Croydon is, of course, buzzing. The Spread Eagle and The Oval Tavern, which has a brilliant live music scene, are always a good bet for evening entertainment.
A range of restaurants are available in central Purley with the likes of DanThai and the atmospheric Las Fuentas attracting locals in the evenings. Nearby Croydon broadens the culinary options even further. The likes of BOXPARK and the Surrey Street Market, both well-known for their street-food offerings, attract visitors from near and far each week. Meanwhile restaurants such as Little Bay (modern European) and Karachi Cuisine (Pakistani) offer food and atmosphere not to be missed.
Purley has an array of coffee spots with Lupita Coffee House and the Portuguese deli O Farol perhaps the pick of the bunch. Again, Croydon has a larger selection available – keep an eye out for Crushed Bean and Smoothbean! both of which are favourites among locals.
Purley offers so much to potential residents. With a wide range of options on your doorstep, a smorgasbord of activities a stone’s throw away in Croydon and, of course, all the central London has to offer a short train journey from Athena House. Leisue and cultural activities are all on offer too. Three golf courses serve the area (Purley Downs, Coulsdon Manor, Woodcote Park) whilst numerous parks and sports facilities are also dotted in and around the village.
