Beautiful Five Bedroom Period Home in Best Spot - CHAIN FREE.
This amazing five bedroom home marries the best of period elegance with modern ingenuity. Generously spread over spacious, vast floors, the interior features top notch furnishings, tasteful styling and a sprinkling of original features. The landscaped front and rear gardens are each super smart spaces and there's a heated head height cellar in which to hide the golf clubs. The loft will house any number of hobbies and all your bedrooms are proper doubles. Champion Grove is a most special-tree lined horseshoe shaped haven of similarly impressive Georgian and Victorian properties. Perfectly placed for the best of both East Dulwich and Camberwell, you're also treated to the delights of nearby Ruskin Park. Dog Kennel Primary, with good OFSTED rating, is a three minute walk and Denmark Hill station is just five.
A double storey canted bay with simple cornicing, classic portico and London stock brick work invites you in off the quiet residential Grove. The front garden is fringed with mature hedging and enjoys a low maintenance yet high-end raised paved patio which too is fringed with flora. Entering through the noticeably high portico you'll meet with an original period door and eye catching period tiling up to dado level and on the door step. The inner hall boasts three metre high ceilings and original cornicing. Stylish painted floorboards continue to the left where you'll meet a super-sized double reception. Enjoying a wide bay to the front and French doors to the rear, the space is afforded natural separation with a wide central arch. Matching funked-up feature mantels, integrated lighting, coving and cast iron school style radiators reinforce the tasteful blend of old and new.
The head height cellar is accessed at the end of the hall under the stairs and offers any amount of uses from a gym to moody teenage den. From the end of the hall you'll be grabbed by the kitchen/diner which treats you to a flood of natural light. A wall of glass doors to the rear open fully out to the garden offering the perfect BBQ venue. A side bay of pretty frosted sash windows supplies more welcome cooking light and the ridged wooden cabinets are crowned with thick cut oak counters. A huge island houses a four ring gas hob and enough storage to house every pot and pan. The right hand wall hosts a double oven and stainless steel sink. The garden itself is really something special; two gently raised paved levels play host to four separate matching planters and there's built in mood lighting for your late night summer gatherings.
Back inside on the first floor you'll find a long carpeted landing. The main bedroom fronts the Grove nudging into the super wide bay with enough space for a full size pool table! Rich terracotta walls with contrasting white on the frieze make for a decadent vibe and there's a wooden feature surround in place of the fire. The second generous double bedroom sits to the rear with fitted storage, dark painted floorboards and an original feature fireplace and mantel. To the rear of the landing you'll discover the wc and shower room have been kept separate (squabble free). The shower room has twin wash hand basins and a shower with drencher fitting.
The third bedroom sits rear leaning into another beautiful bay window. A further ascent reveals another long landing. The fourth bedroom, again, spans the full width of the house. Blue and white walls and quality carpeting keep things warm and trendy. The fifth and final bedroom sits to the rear with another original feature fireplace and some well-chosen paint shades. There's a handy laundry room resting on the second return. Here you'll benefit from recessed storage, sink and drainer and space and plumbing for the washing machine. A big and bold bathroom with roll top bath, walk in shower and loo offers a fine space for the morning ablutions. The loft room is accessed via retractable stairs on the landing. It's got electricity and flooring - yoga room?
