Camberwell Grove, Camberwell
Charming Georgian house with two bathrooms and four bedrooms, over four floors, with dreamy St. Giles spire church views from the well-stocked east-facing rear garden of over 30 feet (there’s also a small front courtyard garden at lower ground floor level). The property is being sold chain free.
There are two entrances and indeed two exits, and the handsome period home and its front railings are Grade II listed. You’re in glorious Camberwell Grove Conservation Area heartland - close to central Camberwell, Denmark Hill Station (Fare Zone 2), and to Lyndhurst Primary School.
Boasting impressive architecture, Camberwell Grove - the very worthy star of a charming episode of the BBC series ‘The Secret History of Our Streets’ (2016) - follows the line of a grove of mesmerising mature plane trees which once led from a Tudor manor house which afforded an excellent view of the City of London, just three miles to the north.
In the front door and the welcoming hall hosts a miniature house within the wall - the first we’ve ever seen - cute! Take a right before the stairs for the main living room, which is open to a rustic-style fitted kitchen with window to garden views. The whole space runs over 22 feet, and the reception space is carpeted and has built-in alcove shelving and cupboards.
On the first floor you have a big bedroom to pretty street views - of over 15 feet by over 12 feet, with lots of built-in closets. Adjacent is a large bathroom with white sanitary ware and generous built-in cupboards.
The second floor has two further bedrooms - these are over 15 feet by over 12 feet, and over 10 feet by 10 feet. Both have pale walls and carpets.
On the lower ground floor, you’ve got your fourth bedroom (this one’s over 15 feet by nearly 12 feet), with direct access to a small courtyard space, where metal stairs go up to the pavement. Also on this floor you have a kitchenette/utility room, and a simple internal bathroom. The space can be flexibly used - this floor makes a great guest or au pair suite, for example.
The garden is a part-walled, private and sunny spot, with mature planting and low-maintenance paving. And for public local outside space, you are very close to St. Giles Churchyard and Lucas Gardens, with Lettsom Gardens, Myatt’s Fields, and Brunswick and Ruskin Parks but a short walk too. Brockwell Park, Peckham Rye Park & Common, Burgess Park and even Dulwich and Greenwich Parks are also all easily reached.
Denmark Hill Station is a brief eight minute walk for Fare Zone 2 regular and Overground services. Camberwell Church Street is also close for excellent day and night bus routes.
Lyndhurst and Dog Kennel Hill primaries are your closest. And the Dulwich independent schools are but a short drive, as is The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School (on Lyndhurst Grove).
Deli culture has arrived in SE5 - we like Grove Lane Deli, Gladwell’s and FROG Bakery. A large Sainsbury’s is close on Dog Kennel Hill, and you have a M&S Food Hall close by on Grove Vale, by East Dulwich Station.
Central Camberwell has a strong gastronomic offering - some of our favourites are The Camberwell Arms, Silk Road, Nandine and Theo’s. You’ve got good pubs locally, too: Grove House Tavern (now one of Parched Pub's portfolio), Hermits Cave, The Crooked Well, Stormbird, The Phoenix, The Tiger and The Joiners Arms are all friendly spots.
Zen Yoga Studio is close and also Butterfly Tennis Club. Camberwell’s leisure centre is nearby too (walk three minutes) with its recently-refurbished pool and gym facilities in a grand Victorian setting.
For more restaurants and social options, Peckham (Ganapati and Artusi are our top recommendations here), Brixton, Herne Hill and East Dulwich are all SE5’s neighbouring towns - with lots of independent offerings, plus markets, pop-ups and such.
