Parkside Five Bedroom Victorian Gem With Period Features and Large Cellar.
Sitting on the glorious leafy fringes of the much-loved Victorian Myatt's Field, this beautiful period home supplies a spacious home filled with original charm. The house, spread over three generous floors (plus large head-height cellar) boasts picture rails, cornicing, ceiling roses, tesselated tiled flooring and some show-stopping fireplaces. The accommodation comprises two reception rooms, a large kitchen/diner, five double bedrooms, bathroom and guest wc. The rear garden is leafy and peaceful with fruit bearing trees. A moments stroll brings you to Myatt's Field which beguiles with rose-lined pathways, coffee shop and period bandstand - a joy whatever the season!
A handsome red bricked exterior sits behind high hedging and a neat front garden. Inside you meet a hall with the high ceilings you'd expect of the era. Original cornicing, dado rails and wonderful tiled flooring lead you forward. The first reception has a wide, square front bay window facing toward the park. An original fireplace enjoys all its original kit and kaboodle - tiling, hood, mantel and hearth! The ceiling rose complements the decorative embossed frieze work. It's all delightful.
Toward the end of the hall you meet a neat wc and access to the huge cellar which has a laundry area and plenty of space for a gym/yoga studio or moody teenage hideaway. The second reception enjoys low level storage units, picture rails and garden access through French doors. The super sized kitchen/diner stretches generously to include oodles of cooking and dining space. There's more original cornicing, a four ring gas hob and ceramic sink and drainer. It's not hard to see the potential for an impressive side extention (subject to pp). Outside you'll enjoy a pleasant lawn with mature fruit-bearing apple tree, shed and paved patio.
The first return hosts the bathroom and the first double bedroom - a peaceful rear facing affair with original fitted storage and garden views. The master bedroom spans the full width of the building and peers over the conservatory of the park - so lovely to open the curtains to each morning! A particularly lovely original feature fireplace continues the charm offensive. Bedroom three - another peaceful double boasts more storage and another feature fireplace. The final upward trot delivers two more gorgeous double bedrooms, each with feature fireplaces.

If the weather's good you can practise your forehand at the tennis courts in Myatts Fields opposite - grab a coffee or let the dog run riot. There's a fantastic playground with water play area and various wholesome weekly activities around the bandstand. We love the regular farmer's market too! After a hard day at the office chill out at the much loved 'Sun of Camberwell' with good food and great cocktails. We love 'The Hermit's Cave' for a pint of the black stuff and 'The Crooked Well' if you feel like a treat. Camberwell has some highly considered foodie hot spots too. Silk Road has been getting some much deserved press attention of late. It offers traditional Chinese cuisine from Xinjiang province is proving wildly popular with the locals.
