Exceptional Grade II Listed Seven or Eight Bedroom Georgian Home with 185ft Garden
We have relentlessly championed the architectural splendour of Camberwell Grove and now have the opportunity to offer this wonderful property to the market. It’s such a grand, imposing house which forms part of a fine Georgian crescent built circa 1815-1830. The house was once converted into three self-contained apartments at the beginning of the 20th century and remained that way for the next hundred years, until the current owners painstakingly reinstated it into an exceptional family home.
The property has been carefully maintained and retains many original and interesting period features. It overlooks a large, well-tended private green and has its own glorious, leafy 185ft rear garden with various seating areas and budding plants and shrubs. Parking for up to three cars is provided in a private road to the front of the house. In through a noble front door where a wide hallway positioned to the far right of the house doesn’t encroach on the living space. It widens to the rear too. There are two vast reception rooms on this level, each with arched sash windows, wooden shutters and fireplaces. The floors are a good, solid wood and walls are an approachable white. From the hall, stairs drive down past a neat loo to the lower level, currently hosting a family dining/lounging room and kitchen. Plenty of white fronted wooden units will store your weekly goods and a huge island with built in cooking appliances will please budding chefs. Additional storage can be found in the hall towards the front of the house. You’ll notice a separate entrance point to this level too, leading onto a small patio with a storage vault. Head back inside and through the kitchen to find a light-filled conservatory cleverly added to the back of the house. It provides further seating areas to entertain and impress guests.
The top three floors hosts seven or eight bedrooms, depending on how you use them. The first floor has an impressive master suite overlooking the garden, with separate dressing room and bathroom. Bedroom two can be found overlooking the Grove and there is a shower room next door. A balcony with a view of St Paul's will delight. Up again to find three further bedrooms (one en suite), plenty of storage cupboards and another family bathroom. The very top of the house has another two or three bedrooms (gosh!), two of which feature half of a very lovely arched, semi-circular window shared with next door.
One of the most exciting homes we’ve seen over the years in a super location, with very good transport links to Victoria, London Bridge, Canary Wharf and Clapham from Denmark Hill station (zone 2 with London Overground Line), 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.
