Alma Place is a collection of six two-bedroom duplex apartments. Located centrally within Crystal Palace, the development juxtaposes its urban surroundings by sitting within a private woodland. Excellent transport links to the centre of London and a thriving local community will provide residents with all they need, both on their doorstep and minutes away by train. The development is situated at the southern point of an area known as ‘The Triangle’, which is packed with restaurants, cafes, boutique stores and more, all within a stone’s throw of the front door.
Today, Crystal Palace plays host to a burgeoning community of creatives and young professionals. Local amenities include excellent restaurants, high-end coffee shops, an Everyman cinema and everything else you could expect in a modern, residential outpost of London. Extra-curricular pursuits are also covered with yoga studios, ceramics classes and much more. The Saturday morning market bursts at the seams with local, organic and sustainable produce. Local businesses, artists and buskers are supported with all profits going to Crystal Palace’s Patchwork Farm and other good causes. Meanwhile Crystal Palace Park offers Sunday strolls, unique scenery and a breath-taking view over South London and beyond in to the city.
The central area of Crystal Palace and Upper Norwood is rich with options for eating out, any time of the day. Crystal Palace Market (not to be confused with the Saturday morning food market) is a busy, all-day eatery with delicious British cuisine amongst modern, industrial interiors. Meanwhile, Smoked Bone serves-up an altogether more American affair with burgers, ribs, chicken and even a weekend brunch menu on offer. Joanna’s has been a local favourite for a long time with their signature burger and Sunday roast menu a mainstay. A plethora of alternative cuisines are available, with the likes of Yak & Yeti (Nepalese/Indian); Four Hundred Rabbits (pizza); Kish Mish (Persian) and many more all within walking distance of the development.
The Triangle area is dotted with cafes, brunch spots and coffee houses - Four Boroughs Coffee is a must-visit for coffee aficionados. Brown & Green is a popular location with food & coffee lovers and they have even branched out to open satellite spots at the train station and in the nearby park. Cadence Performance Limited is a hub for the more active coffee drinkers in the area, also playing host to a cycle shop and yoga studio.
The night life in the area is buzzing with a number of pubs and bars offering wide-ranging drinks and food options. Westow House is perhaps the largest destination in the centre of Crystal Palace, with vintage décor and live music attracting punters over the weekends. The likes of The Faber Fox, Walker Briggs, The White Hart and The Alma offer different takes on the pub/bar experience with an eclectic mix of locals attracted to each. Cocktail Embassay also provides a fun yet sophisticated cocktail experience to residents.
There is much more than a busy drinking scene to keep you occupied. Lovers of yoga & fitness (Bamboo Fitness; The Yoga Edge; Cadence Performance & more), athletics (at the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre) and cooking (Yuki’s Kitchen sushi classes, Crystal Palace Food Market and more) are all catered for. There are activities and excursions for the family too with the Crystal Palace park playing host to a maze as well as a walk that takes in a range of dinosaur models, first commissioned in 1852 to accompany the Crystal Palace Exhibition. Architecture enthusiasts can marvel at the stunning arches of the Crystal Palace subway whilst football fans could do much worse than to take in the roaring atmosphere at Selhurst Park.
Excellent transport links to the centre of London and a thriving local community will provide residents with all they need, both on their doorstep and minutes away by train.
