Adjacent to Burgess Park is this wonderful Grade II listed semi-detached house, situated in a conservation area. Beautifully proportioned, with four/five bedrooms, three reception rooms, two bathrooms and an eat-in kitchen. The garden is about 90 foot long with an additional 30 foot long dogleg containing a huge shed with electricity and OSP to the front. Glengall Road is visually stunning and lined with similar properties and well placed for Peckham, Camberwell, Bermondsey and Elephant and Castle.
Gated OSP will impress and from the front garden you enter the property via a flight of steps up to a grand portico entrance with columns. The inner hallway is impressive with wooden flooring and leads through to two reception rooms to the left. Perfectly proportioned, each has a huge sash window, almost floor to ceiling height; one to the rear with views of the seemingly endless garden and one to the front. There are fitted bookshelves to the alcoves and beautifully, mellowed wood flooring with original marble fire surrounds with cast iron inserts. These rooms are supremely relaxing and quiet as they are located on the upper ground floor, providing a secluded feel. At the end of the hallway is an idyllic bedroom with sash window overlooking the garden, currently used as a home office.
Stairs with carpet runner lead down to a spacious, lower ground floor and a door to the left leads to a side access passage which runs from the front to rear gardens – very useful for any gardening work. Towards the back of the house is the kitchen with fitted units, central island and pretty panelling to the right hand wall. There are French doors leading directly out to a 90 foot private garden. Adjacent to the kitchen is a stunning dining room with sash window overlooking the front and more wooden floors. Next to this (and also to the front of the property) is a very large shower room and handy utility area. At the very rear of this floor you’ll find a delightful study/garden room (or fifth bedroom) again with access to the garden, fitted shelving and a feature fireplace.
Head up to the half landing to find a bedroom before arriving on the first floor. There's a big double bedroom to the rear with sash window, fitted wardrobes and fireplace. Towards the front is another bedroom, again with fireplace and wardrobes and a smart bathroom with immaculate suite, white tiling and contrasting black tiled floor. A pretty arched sash window brings in lots of light. Hoarders will be bowled over by the impressive loft space. It's accessed via a door with a pull down ladder, is fully boarded and almost unbeatable for storage.
This is a really superb opportunity to own a gorgeous period house located just 15 minutes from the City. The river is very close too - grab a bus from Old Kent Road and be at London Bridge, South Bank, Waterloo or the City in 12 minutes (you can jump on the tube there if you need to go further north). Burgess Park is only a couple of minutes' walk away where you can stroll around the lake or even fish! The huge Tesco on the Old Kent Road is two minutes in the car or you can get them to deliver to the door. Locals in the know will be aware of the plans to turn the Old Kent Road into a "leafy boulevard" over the next few years, served by a probable extension of the Bakerloo line.
