Stunning Two Bedroom House in School Conversion with Off Street Parking and South West Facing Garden
This rare and incredibly charming Victorian school conversion was originally built in 1871 as a cottage for the caretaker. Converted in 1995, this freehold property consist of large and comfortable living areas, two double bedrooms, pretty south facing garden and a cellar. The location is one to swoon over – situated just off North Cross Road in the heart of East Dulwich.
From the outside, the house is brimming with character with draping wisteria, Gothic windows with sashes and an original imposing front door. Step inside to find an entrance hall (with access to the cellar) and the first reception on your left. It has a lovely dual aspect with views over the garden from a square bay window. Underfoot are stripped floorboards and an open fireplace with wood-burning stove takes pride of place. Turning back on yourself to find a second reception room on the other side of the hallway. Here you’ll find more stripped floorboards, an exposed brick wall with another wood burning stove and a bright sash window. Continue to the left through an open arch to find an eat-in kitchen/diner. It’s a very charming space, with country-style units, slate flooring and contemporary glass brick windows. Overhead a Velux window will enhance the light. The rest of the space is perfect for dining and has wooden floors, plenty of fitted shelving for jam-jar storage and French doors leading onto the garden.
Head upstairs, where you are joined by a stunning bespoke banister to reach the landing, lit by two sash windows. You can access the loft from here too. On your left is bedroom one, having stripped floorboards, two sash windows and an exposed brickwork chimney breast. On the opposite side of the hall is the second bedroom, again a brilliantly sized double, with a dual aspect, views of the garden, fitted wardrobe and stunning white painted floor. The bathroom can be found just off the hall and is more than an ample size. The suite is white and includes a central tub and a shower attachment. There are two sash windows, stripped wooden floors and a tiled chimney breast. Outside, the garden is sure to delight – it’s south-west facing with flagstone paving, mature wisteria and decorative trees.
