Magnificent Six Bedroom Grade II Listed Georgian Home With Huge Garden and Roof Terrace - CHAIN FREE.
This unique Georgian home rambles elegantly over 5 floors (plus loft) to include a most impressive array of beautifully maintained accommodation. Built around 1790, the house retains much of its original splendour and includes a reception room of exquisite proportion! The first-floor master suite supplies bedroom, dressing room, en suite AND conservatory. The rear garden is exceptionally generous stretching over 80 ft wide. A first-floor roof terrace with sweeping tree top views faces the spire of St Giles Church to beguile yet further. A healthy sprinkling of original features abound including fireplaces, cornicing, sash windows - even a Georgian bread oven and the original range. There's an access point through the head-height and boarded loft from whence you can spy some excellent panoramic London views - it's not hard to see the opportunity for a magnificent studio or workspace! This is a unique home on one of London's best period streets. The location is within a moment's tree-lined ramble of the best of Camberwell - bars, eateries and bountiful London bustle. Nearby green spaces include the charming Brunswick Park with its tennis courts, gallery and cafe. Even closer is St Giles Church grounds - it's a lovely spot for peaceful contemplation. Transport links are equally impressive with Denmark Hill an easy 10-minute stroll. It boasts direct trains to Victoria, Blackfriars, Elephant & Castle, St Pancras and more. The London Overground Line will whizz you to Shoreditch, Clapham and Canada Water for the Jubilee Line.
Enter through an original Georgian door with arched fanlight. Solid oak flooring runs vertically throughout your first living space which runs open plan into the full width of the building. Treats include an original fireplace and wooden panelling. A front aspect sash window peers over the Grove while double doors lead rear to your kitchen. Here you'll find solid oak counters, a four-ring gas hob and NEFF oven. Further double doors open from here to that utterly splendid reception space which spans almost 500 sq. ft. A grand period fireplace with imposing decorative mantel and hearth takes centre stage and there's a signature skylight above allowing daylight to cascade downward. Farrow and Ball's 'Green Smoke' completes the space beautifully. A canted bay with twin arched sash windows and wide French doors lead next to your magnificent garden which runs the width of four houses. Mature roses, lavender, shrubs and bushes supply the perfect array of leafiness.
Off the entrance hall you find a guest WC and access to the side return which wraps back around to the garden. Moving downward to the lower ground floor you meet a front facing TV room with original range and great shelving. This could also be used as a guest bedroom. French doors open out to twin vaults - great for storage. To the rear of the TV room there is a well-stocked utility room with sink, airing cupboard and plumbing for the washing machine. The wine cellar adjoins and wraps back around to the ballroom. Nipping down for your next bottle of red couldn't be easier. The first floor supplies a noteworthy principle suite comprising dressing room, shower room and a double bedroom with feature fireplace. A sunny conservatory offers the perfect spot for some reading. From here you ascend a half flight to the glorious roof terrace which faces the spire of St Giles's church and presides over the garden below.
Upward again to the second floor delivers you to a large front facing double bedroom with white timber floors and dainty feature fireplace. A fourth bedroom faces the rear with Seagrass flooring, red walls and a delightful sash window. A 'Jack and Jill' bathroom is accessible from both rooms. This has a period suite, contemporary roll top bath, walk-in shower and heated towel rail. Upward to the third floor, you find further handsome double bedrooms to both front and rear. A contemporary shower room with exposed brick feature wall completes this level. The tour is finished with a head-height loft space. Accessed from the upper landing, it offers an exciting opportunity for development. A hinged glass door opens to the flat roof where you'll spy those fantastic views.
In addition to the excellent rail links of Denmark Hill, there are a multitude of buses running close by offering swift services to the City and West End. The Oval and Elephant and Castle Underground stations are both a short bus ride away. The very excellent Lyndhurst Primary is but a moment's stroll as are a plethora of eateries and coffee shops including Caravaggio's, Good Neighbour, and the much-loved FM Mangal. Quality gastro pubs abound. We love The Crooked Well and the award-winning Camberwell Arms. Camberwell Art School and the Dulwich Foundation schools are all a walk, short drive or bus ride away and there are plenty of shops nearby including a host of independent food shops in Camberwell Green. Keeping fit? The wonderful period Camberwell Baths and gym is stunning and within 60 seconds from your door. Ruskin Park is a short hop and you have the Butterfly Tennis Club on your doorstep - anyone for Pimms?
