Brockwell Park Gardens, Herne Hill
Fine Edwardian house and 40 foot west-facing garden (with rear access) next to Brockwell Park, set within Brockwell Park Conservation Area. Built circa 1900, and measuring it at approximately 1840 square feet, the house offers up four bedrooms, bath and shower rooms, and lashings of open-plan living space, plus a bespoke fitted kitchen complete with AGA. All this and you're just a 10-15 minute walk from Herne Hill Station and town centre. Freehold.
A well-established front garden welcomes you in. The front doors open to a shoe-friendly porch, then you open into the large living space (once two reception rooms) of over 27 feet by over 16. Views from the generous bay window are particularly verdant – it’s a delightful spot for snuggling up with a book. Within the room, you’ll enjoy day-long light thanks to the east-west orientation of the house, solid wood floors, a (working) modern fireplace, and alcove shelving. A double-glazed door opens onto the side return if you’d like to access the garden here. Beyond handy under stairs storage on your left is the fitted kitchen that was made for the space, in a blue hue. Two windows sit onto the side return. On through (noting the ceiling-high doors; the previous owners bestowed many an architectural feature upon the house) and you’ll find a family room/snug that’s over 12 feet by over 10. Beyond this, folding doors open onto a useful conservatory of over 10 feet by nearly 9. Slide open the conservatory door to the mature garden with both hard and lawned areas. A back gate connects you to a path at the back of the house (gardener’s dream!).
Up the stairs and first up, straight ahead, is a large double-aspect bedroom (once two rooms) of over 17 feet by over 11. In here, enjoy stripped floors, white walls and recessed lighting. Adjacent is a modern bathroom with oversized tub (plus over bath shower), smart slate floor tiles and a heated towel rail. Next up is a generous single bedroom of over 9 feet by nearly 7, and taking the width of the house to the front, find the beautiful master bedroom of over 16 feet by nearly 13, with door onto the tidy en suite shower room.
Up a spiral stair this time for the converted loft space which offers up four skylight windows, loads of accessible eaves storage, and both home office and bedroom areas. It suits an au pair or guest setup and there’s potential to make more of it should you wish (with the appropriate permissions).
Herne Hill Station (Zone 2+3) makes the commute or London adventures simple with regular trains to Victoria (9 mins) and Blackfriars (11 mins). Many well-regarded primary schools are close, including Rosendale Primary (Ofsted-rated 'Outstanding') and Judith Kerr Primary ('Good'). Dulwich's independent schools are but a short drive away.
Herne Hill has a brilliant, largely-pedestrianised high street area with nice pubs, independent restaurants, cafes and shops. Plus a weekly Farmers' Market – where you'll likely spot a local celebrity or two. We love Herne Hill books for gift shopping and Llewelyn’s by the station for a posh dinner. Cafe Provencal is great for a coffee and catch-up. Brockwell Park plus Lido, gym and pool-side cafe (The Lido Cafe) are seriously local, and community events include the Lambeth County Show held each July. It's been running since 1974! Tulse Hill Station is also close for frequent services to London Bridge (20 mins).
