Bushey Hill Road, Camberwell
Flexible five bed Victorian house of 1872 square feet over four floors (incorporating a deftly-done loft conversion), with three bathrooms, two entrances, and a generous walled garden of over 45 feet.
Find it on Bushey Hill Road - one of the desirable ‘Lyndhurst toast rack’ streets, in popular Camberwell/Peckham Rye borderland.
Walk just 12 minutes to either Denmark Hill Station or Peckham Rye Station; both are Fare Zone 2 and on the Overground network.
Peckham’s Bellenden Road and central Camberwell are both a 10 minute walk. The South London Gallery is closer, on Peckham Road. Local highly-regarded schools include The Villa Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School (2-7), and The Belham and Lyndhurst primaries (3-11).
The house has two front doors: one at lower ground level, and one at raised ground floor level. Entering at the latter, open into a welcoming oak-floored hall with formal reception to your right - this has a large south-west facing window, central fireplace, picture rail detail, and alcove shelving. Adjacent, is the kitchen/diner, with a modern fitted kitchen, and timber-framed French doors to a cute terrace with stairs leading down to the garden.
The raised ground floor also hosts a windowed guest w.c. and a second reception (of over 8 feet each way) with garden views. This is currently enjoyed as a play room/den, though would equally work as a home office or additional/occasional bedroom.
Up to the first floor and you’ll first find a beautifully-appointed bathroom with sash and skylight windows, and a smart white suite which includes a free-standing roll-top bath. You also have an independent shower, ceramic brick-style tiling (Fired Earth), and under-basin storage.
Next up is a carpeted double bedroom of over 12 feet by over 10 feet, and across the width of the front of the house is the twin-sashed and carpeted master bedroom, of over 17 feet by 12 feet, with a bank of bespoke built-in closets to one entire wall.
The second floor delivers a delightful master suite: a big double bedroom with storage, and a slick en suite shower room with skylight window.
There’s more! The lower ground floor provides two further double bedrooms - both are over 12 feet by over 11 feet. You’ve also got a neat and windowed shower room plus kitchen/utility room with back door onto the paved area of the garden. This floor can be enjoyed as a self-contained one bedroom flat if this setup best suits your needs - for guests or tenants, or an au pair etc.
Reputedly, Bushey Hill Road developed over its own history as a ‘show street’ of varying architectural styles - where one could pick a style of home to order. It must have been quite the shopping experience! It's a lovely leafy spot, where local green spaces include Warwick, Lucas and Lettsom Gardens, Peckham Rye Park and Common, and Ruskin and Burgess parks.
As well as the really-close Zone 2 stations, there are plenty of useful bus routes from Peckham Road - at the foot of your road - including the 436 (Paddington and Victoria), the 12 (Oxford Circus) and the 171 (Holborn).
Local eating and drinking establishments worthy of note include The Camberwell Arms, Grove House Tavern, Theo’s, Silk Road, The Hermits Cave, The Crooked Well and Crane’s Kitchen (SE5) and Levan, The Montpelier, Ganapati, The Coal Rooms, The Begging Bowl, Artusi, The Victoria Inn and Mr Bao (SE15). When it’s warm, Rye Lane’s rooftop bars are the on-trendiest destination for cocktails and people-watching. Rye Lane also has handy high street shops and markets.
Peckham and Camberwell both have good leisure centres with large lane pools, and The Butterfly Tennis Club and Zen Yoga Studio are also local, at the bottom of beautiful Camberwell Grove.
