Extraordinary Grade II Georgian Four Bed Semi in Conservation Area.
The original cook's range remains in the lower ground level of this wonderful home on Camberwell Grove. Such features are rarely found in these magnificent properties, and many rooms here enjoy original fireplaces too. With a walk-in cellar, double bedrooms, rambling walled garden, conservatory, lower ground kitchen, dining room, utility room and vast double reception, this house ticks all the boxes of modern functionality while retaining the authenticity admired in period homes. Camberwell Grove falls inside a Conservation Area due to the impressive collection of Regency and Georgian houses lining it.
Step inside to find a panelled foyer with coat and umbrella space before double doors open into the main living area. Thoughtfully opened up, this room has a double aspect and two main sitting areas where period fireplaces (with marble surrounds) take centre stage of each. Alcoves have bookshelves and cupboards already fitted and the original staircase falls between these two areas comfortably. Beautiful casement windows to the rear overlook the mature garden and French doors from the left side of the room takes you out through the conservatory. Presently this room encompasses a large office area with no trouble at all, such is it's generous proportion.
Taking the stairs down (there's a deep, lit understairs cupboard), you find a respectably sized kitchen. This is a large room whose windows face towards the street. A second entry point to the house exists through the door by the sink. To the right is the door into the original cellar, a really good size and full height. A formal dining room sits on the other side of the hall - use the saloon doors to reach it (ideal for carrying hot dishes through to your hungry guests). Find the range in the chimney breast, flanked by bespoke cupboards to each alcove. Natural tiles are underfoot, walls are emerald green and sliding glass doors open out to a paved lower ground terrace. Follow the door opposite the range into an utility area and downstairs w.c.
Two double bedrooms and an attractive bathroom are on the first floor. Travelling up the original staircase you arrive facing a landing window. Facing the front of the house is the master bedroom, complete with stunning original fireplace and twin sash windows. Currently used as a dressing room is the second double having very deep wall to wall wardrobes delving back to the exterior wall. Pretty panels wrap the bathroom walls, painted in white. Exposed floorboards lift the room and the traditional suite fits the house perfectly. Up to the second floor for two further, bright double bedrooms. A very useful shower room is sandwiched between.
Stone steps from the lower terrace will take you up to a further paved terrace, alternatively access the garden via the conservatory. This has large floor tiles and ample shelves for potted plants. Many delightful specimens are found outside including established eucalyptus, ivys an rhododendrons. At the rear is a sweet shed charmingly swamped with creepers. Life is easy from here, an excellent array of schools are at your fingertips. The Villa Pre Prep School, Lyndhurst Grove and Dog Kennel Hill Primaries are all within 10 minutes walk, while the Dulwich Foundation Schools are around 5 minute drive. Do your weekly shop at Sainsbury's (3 minutes in the car) or have it delivered from the organic grocers, butchers or deli in neighbouring East Dulwich. Your social life will swirl as Clapham, Blackheath, Greenwich plus Camberwell and East Dulwich are all very close. Take the youngsters to Lucas Gardens or Dulwich Park for the swings, and make the most of an easy
commute. Denmark Hill station (Zone 2) offers swift services to Victoria, Blackfriars, Clapham, Shoreditch and Canada Water for the Jubilee Line.
