Bushey Hill Road, Camberwell
Best and final offers invited by 1pm, Tuesday 8th March 2022.
Big is beautiful one bed Victorian conversion top (second) floor flat, of 654 square feet, with a Freehold-share, within a handsome semi of just three flats.
The property has an east-west orientation - favoured by artists - you get great light throughout the flat, throughout the day. Permit-parking is on-street.
Find the flat on high ground, on a quiet tree-lined residential ‘Lyndhurst toast-rack’ street near Warwick Gardens - between Peckham Rye and Denmark Hill Stations (eight and 11 minutes by foot respectively), and the cool town centres of Peckham and Camberwell. Bellenden Road is your most local high street area.
There’s a neat shared hall then you take the stairs to the first floor and your own front door. Immediately inside the flat is a tiled entrance area and a large wardrobe (which is staying) - for coats, shoes and such.
From the half-landing you’ve got your carpeted bedroom straight ahead: a good double of over 10 feet each way, with a wall of closets (which are staying), and a windowed bathroom with trad-style sanitary ware, and an over bath shower. Plus custom-made window shutters (these feature in the bedroom as well).
From the generous main landing, to your right is the eat-in kitchen - of over 12 feet by over 9 feet, with modern units and stripped wooden floors.
The reception room is the final point of the tour; it’s a lovely large room of over 16 feet by over 12 feet (you’d struggle to find a living room this big in a house!), with bespoke shelving to one whole wall and the near alcove, more treated floor boards, and a pretty feature fireplace. Timber wooden window shutters further impress to the east-facing windows (to street vistas).
What’s about? Local green spaces include Warwick, Lucas and Lettsom Gardens (bag yourself a key for the latter, for a small annual fee), Peckham Rye Park and Common and Ruskin and Brunswick Parks.
You’re close to two excellent Zone 2 stations. Both offer regular and London Overground services. There are also plenty of useful bus routes from Peckham Road, just down the hill, including the 436 (Paddington and Victoria), the 12 (Oxford Circus) and the 171 (Holborn).
Local eating and drinking establishments of note include Theo's, Momo, The Camberwell Arms, The Hermits Cave and The Crooked Well (SE5) and The Montpelier, Ganapati, Miss Tapas, The Begging Bowl, Levan, The Coal Rooms, Tupi, Artusi and Mr Bao (SE15). Of the warmer months, check out Rye Lane’s rooftop bars.
The South London Gallery is a few minutes away. And next door is Crane's cafe and restaurant.
Peckham and Camberwell both have good leisure centres with pools, and The Butterfly Tennis Club and Zen Yoga Studio are also local, at the bottom of beautiful Camberwell Grove.
