Century Yard seems to have rapidly deteriorated into a bit of a tip. They have tried to do "modern" architecture on the cheap and without the benefit of a decent architect. Result is it already looks grotty and the most apt local comparison is actually with the run-down council houses on Shifford Path rather than a 60s Wates / Dulwich Estate job on Sydenham Hill. I do wonder who the residents are to let it get so neglected so quickly.
In terms of your flat, is it in the new building built to match, or the original terrace? Would you not be better off (budget permitting) in one of the blocks on Taymount Rise or Honor Oak Road?

Hi thanks for your reply. I am going to buy the flat behind the agents not the new ones.
But thank you for your comments
