Wonderful Grade II Listed Four Bedroom House with 60ft Garden on Camberwell Grove.
This four bedroom Georgian Grade II listed building is in perfect condition, having been restored to the highest of standards including a new roof in 2018. It is ideal for a household who wants a large garden, be away from noise and traffic, and benefit from a neighbourly community. Camberwell Grove is uniquely popular due to its unique Georgian character. This house is ready to walk into and become a family home with no alterations or refurbishment required. Camberwell Grove is one of the most beautiful streets in London, with a unique stock of Georgian homes, lined with enormous plane trees on both sides, very little traffic, and very easy transport using buses or trains, including the overground. This house is situated well away from the main road, perhaps 1/3 of the way up the Grove. One of its selling points is its garden and the planning permission for a charming garden room. .
Enter a sympathetically presented hallway with high, original wood panelling and neutral walls. An arched fanlight over the original door will delight in equal measure. The double reception is on your right and spans the depth of the house with front and rear aspects through lovely sash windows. The room is both beautiful and comfortable to sit in both winter and summer, with a fully working fireplace and with a beautiful Georgian designed surround. To the rear of the hall you'll find garden access and a winding staircase down to the lower ground floor. Here, the recently installed open-plan John Lewis kitchen and generous dining area span the depth of the building. The integrated kitchen fittings and equipment are of the highest standard and the finish is top quality. Overall the area provides a lovely light space for family meals and entertaining. Two front facing sash windows with wooden internal shutters peer toward the Grove and there is access to a large arched outside storage space. The dining area has a period working gas fireplace with mantel and hidden cupboards on the opposite wall. A guest wc with loo, hand basin and beautiful stained glass door completes this floor.
Skipping up the stairs you pass a charming rear facing window seat with shelving - a great spot for reading. The very generous master bedroom suite on the first runs the full width of the house and has an adjoining walk-in dressing area fitted out in beautiful lacewood veneer and with a chic 'zen' en suite shower. This overlooks the garden and is completed with a bespoke hand basin by Hilary LaForce and sleak Phipple Stark loo. On the top floor are three further bedrooms and a light airy bathroom with a roll top cast iron bath.
Camberwell offers plenty to celebrate - a new library across from Camberwell Green; the refurbished leisure centre with swimming within five minutes walk from this house ; a Saturday farmers market on the Green; and the South London Gallery down the road. For eating (important for home workers) there is the outstanding Gastro Pub the Camberwell Arms; Nandine, a delightful Kurdish restaurant; the well reviewed FM Mangal; and not to forget Theos Pizzeria. Camberwell boasts the only Xianjing Chinese restaurant in London. Not far from Camberwell is one of the most vibrant high streets in London, in East Dulwich, for food, for clothes, for restaurants, and a street market on Saturdays.
Central London is easily accessible from here. The City is a 20 minute drive and Denmark Hill Station (zone 2) is a seven minute walk for regular services to Central, north and east London. Sainsbury's is just 5 minutes away. You'll find some fab boozers too - we love the Hermit's Cave, The Crooked Well, The Tiger and the Camberwell Arms. Good schools are on your doorstep here. Dulwich schools include Dulwich College, Alleyn's, DCPS and JAPS/JAGS. Dog Kennel Hill Primary school and Lyndhurst School are two very good state primary schools a short walk from the house.
