Rare to the market, this elegant property is set back from the road, behind a sizeable front garden with its own topiary peacock, wisteria and living-roof bike shed. Inside, the property boasts in excess of 2400 square feet of living space and is it a fantastic location being perfectly placed for Northcross Road Market and Peckham Rye Park, both being merely a couple of minutes’ walk away.
This house has been lovingly restored and renovated by its current owners and now stands proudly along the tree lined Barry Road, a well liked residential street in East Dulwich being ideally located for that Lordship Lane and East Dulwich has to offer. Treats include many period features, fantastic living areas, double bedrooms throughout, private front and rear gardens, immense kitchen diner expanding to nearly 30ft, utility room, lower ground w.c, three bathrooms, five bedrooms and an upstairs drawing room as well as welcoming family snug off the kitchen.
Step through the front door to find yourself in an eye-catching hallway, L-shaped with wooden flooring and an ornate ceiling. Left is a beautiful reception/bedroom fronting the street with stripped floorboards and a pretty fireplace, beautiful ceiling and picture rail. At the rear of the floor is an upstairs drawing room with floor to ceiling sash windows, period wood burner, picture rails and high skirting boards.
A staircase drives downwards just outside the door here, taking you into the most magnificent kitchen/diner. A run of fitted units takes the left hand wall with a Butler’s sink, five ring range and thick wooden worktops. There is additional fitted storage opposite and bespoke Lebanese Cedar wooden shelving and a space under the stairs for shoes, coats or even a dog basket! There's also a downstairs loo and a utility room. There is a family snug off the kitchen -so the kitchen really is the heart of the home in this property.
Leading from the kitchen are French doors on to the garden, which has a Victorian reclaimed cast iron spiral staircase leading to the first floor flat roof. There are two patio areas - firstly, by the side return, is a paved area perfect for BBQ’s and the back patio gets the evening sun. The rest of the space is mainly laid with lawn and a herbaceous border which includes potatoes, strawberries, beans and blackcurrants among the flowers.
On the first floor is a wonderful master bedroom taking its traditional place across the front of the house. The beauty here is the walk through dressing area! Back on the landing, you spy a fabulous shower room and an additional, gorgeous bathroom facing rear with a stand-alone cast iron bath. An immaculately turned out double bedroom at the rear of the house makes a wonderful guest room.

Both are decorated with a good eye and the family bathroom on this floor is another well-planned addition.
