Bicknell Road, Camberwell
Light and airy three double bed conversion - of 1170 square feet - within a handsome Victorian double-fronted house on a leafy and quiet residential street, incorporating a luxury and contemporary take on a loft conversion (the best we’ve seen!); with bedroom, bathroom and bundles of accessible loft storage, and built-in storage too. You’ve got Shard views as well. Share of Freehold.
The property’s been beautifully and extensively renovated (with a modern kitchen and two modern bathrooms) under its current ownership, with many retained period features. It’s a pleasing, respectful blend of old and new. Some of our favourite bits are the many sash windows, the sisal flooring, the many fireplaces, and the cast iron radiators.
No garden here, but fret not! Walk just two minutes to delightful Ruskin Park with its awesome skyline views and Victorian bandstand.
You’re on lovely high ground up here - some 20 metres above sea level. And it’s a great spot for transport. Walk just nine minutes to Denmark Hill Station (through the park or alongside it). You’re also close to Loughborough Junction Station - walk seven minutes. The location pops you between the vibrant urban centres of Camberwell, Brixton and Herne Hill.
Back to the property itself! Enter at the ground floor into the shared hall (there’s just one flat below you). Open your own front door and take the stairs to the first floor. To the front you have a large reception room of over 12 feet by over 11, and the first of the three doubles - this one is over 13 feet by over 10. Between the two bedrooms you have a neat modern windowed bathroom. The independent w.c. sits across the hall at the rear.
Also on this floor you’ve got a second double bedroom of 11 feet by 10 (or take an extra reception if three bedrooms is too many), and an eat-in kitchen of over 11 feet by nearly 11.
The fitted kitchen takes two walls and is a timeless smart matt white affair with solid wood counters and open shelf detail too. It’s a lovely bright room with a south-easterly orientation.
Up to the second floor and be - well - a bit wowed by the architect-designed loft suite. The space has been totally optimised, with a two-tier bathroom delivering a large independent shower and a free-standing bath. The bedroom space has an impressive full window as well as the usual skylight arrangement. Storage is plentiful as mentioned earlier.
Neighbouring Ruskin Park has gorgeous green and planted spaces, paired with a strong community vibe with active ‘Friends of’ group, bandstand events and paddling pool for the young ones. Skyline views are an added bonus.
This network of streets is a real gem - only residents and park visitors use them really, as the park means none of the streets are an artery anywhere.
As well as central Camberwell, you’re close to buzzy Brixton and Herne Hill (walk to each town centre in 15-18 minutes). All offer top spots for eating, drinking, shopping, and being. Some of our favourite places are The Camberwell Arms (Camberwell), Nanban, Three Eight Four (Brixton, both on Coldharbour Lane), and Herne Hill’s Sunday market (from 10am). Don’t miss Brockwell Park and Lido either!
The Cambria is your most local and lovely pub, with a sunny beer garden out back.
