Warm and Welcoming Six Bedroom Late Victorian House with Terrace, Garden and City Views
Located in the beautiful Grove Park Conservation Area (just off Camberwell Grove) this incredible family home offers six bedrooms, two bathrooms, a cellar and lots of eaves storage. With fantastic period features this is definitely one to please! It soaks the sun from every opportunity; from the large and lovely garden to the first floor terrace and south facing master bedroom. Side access through the gate past the front garden is another welcome addition and during the winter months you have amazing views across the city from the first and second floors. You can spy all of our much-loved landmarks, including the Shard, Canary Wharf and even St. Paul's! You really can't beat it - leafy and lush in the summer and city views in the winter. Grove Park is a Conservation area flanked by some staggering Victorian and Edwardian buildings. Leading from Camberwell Grove, it runs down to Chadwick Road, reaching another Conservation area (Bellenden Road) with the boutiques and cafés on offer here.
Walking through the quaint private garden at the front, you trot up a black and white tiled pathway to the door. Once inside you are welcomed by a fantastic hallway with high ceilings, ornate cornicing throughout and access to a big cellar. A door to the right leads in to the first half of the double reception room. In here you will find array of delights that include stunning wood flooring, a beautiful period fireplace and a superb square bay window that has been dressed with fashionable plantation shutters. The second half of the reception room doesn’t disappoint either; it holds another feature fireplace, more wood flooring and rear aspect double doors that allow access to the private garden. Along the hall, the next room is the kitchen. It’s a spacious room with slate tiling, recessed spotlights for the modern look, side aspect sash windows for originality and floor to ceiling sliding doors that lead onto the garden. There is a separate space for dining too along with some more period features such as restored integrated storage units and the fireplace. Also included is a four ring gas hob with extractor fan and solid wood countertops. The long garden has a patio area and then changes to a healthy lawn. Nearer the end of the garden is a fantastic seating area - an ideal setting to relax!
Escalating to the first floor and the landing has continued the wooden flooring theme as well as the ornate cornicing. The stairs have been carpeted for comfort. The master bedroom can be found at the front of the property and displays two spectacular front aspect sash windows, a feature fireplace and plenty of space for storage options. Neighbouring this is another huge bedroom. Generously sized, this too has a fireplace and more wonderful high ceilings with a rear aspect window that overlooks the patio area of the garden. The bathroom is up next with a wooden floor and tiled bath, side aspect casement window that delicately lights the room with the plantation shutters to cover, a heated towel rail and integrated storage. The last bedroom located on this floor comes with yet another fireplace and rear aspect double doors that give access to a fantastic terraced area which overlooks the garden and the city - it's great for enjoying a tipple on a Saturday evening.
Up another floor (lit by a skylight) and you have another stunning landing. The first room ahead of you is a large bedroom that has both rear and side aspect windows (with more amazing views) and a feature fireplace. A small shower room sits between this and the box room/storage area. It’s a relatively big area that can store all of the unwanted things and is accessed through another well-proportioned bedroom. Here there is a fireplace, integrated wardrobe space and a front aspect window that floods the room with light. The last room is the sixth (yes, sixth) bedroom with a front aspect casement window and space to easily fit a double bed.
A charming, spacious family house in a super location, with very good transport links to Victoria, London Bridge and Blackfriars from Denmark Hill mainline station (zone 2), a pleasant eight minute stroll. Sainsbury is a three minute drive and the Dulwich Foundation schools are only ten. For more frivolous shopping, try Lordship Lane and Northcross Road for some of the best food and gift shops in South London. Ruskin Park is nearby and Dulwich Park, with its new cafe, lake and very popular playground, is also only ten minutes by car. Likewise Dulwich Picture Gallery, Britain’s oldest public art gallery and an inspiring place to while away an afternoon or just visit for lunch.
