Camberwell Grove, Camberwell
Dreamy one double bedroom Georgian conversion apartment of 624 square feet, with ceiling-height, light and charm you’ll find tough to beat.
Further welcome features include a Freehold-share and a shared east-facing communal rear garden. And the building's deep front garden is demised to this flat.
Permit-parking (via Southwark) is on-street for residents. Denmark Hill Station is all of a five minute walk.
The original front door opens to a grand yet comfortable hall (with shared access through to the rear garden). Your front door is set to the left of the hall. Open and take a left for the beautiful reception room, which is open to a smart kitchen. The room in its entirety is over 20 feet by nearly 15 feet. Two tall (west-facing) sashes with original box work and shutters impress, beyond the classy central fireplace.
The traditional-style kitchen runs in two banks - one of which goes to the ceiling (custom-made cupboards make the very most of the space). The other creates a food-prep. and entertaining-friendly counter space with base units. There’s open-shelf detail to the alcove space also.
Straight ahead from the front door and you have a dedicated (windowed) utility/guest w.c. with plumbing for the washing machine and traditional-style sanitary ware.
Your bedroom is up next: a very pretty double room with sash window set at an angle (to verdant vistas), and a timber-framed feature fireplace. The property’s bathroom sits off this room, giving you a ‘suite’ setup. It’s a larger than average one, with feature fireplace, and both free-standing roll-top bath (in front of the window: glorious) and a modern independent walk-in shower. Decorative tiles feature to the floor.
You’re in wonderful Camberwell Grove Conservation Area heartland here, very close to central Camberwell and to Denmark Hill Station (Fare Zone 2). Central Peckham is an easy walk as well: 15 minutes.
Boasting impressive architecture (Georgian in the main), Camberwell Grove - the 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.
For local public green spaces, you are really 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.
Central Camberwell has a strong - and getting stronger - foodie scene. Some of our favourites spots are The Camberwell Arms, Silk Road, Nandine, Theo’s, Gladwell’s, Grove Lane Deli, TOAD (bakery) and Veraison Wines.
You’ve got good pubs locally, too: Grove House Tavern, Hermits Cave, The Crooked Well, Stormbird, The Phoenix (by the station), The Tiger and The Joiners Arms are all friendly spots.
Zen Yoga Studio is close, as is Butterfly Tennis Club. Camberwell’s leisure centre is nearby too - with two pools and gym facilities in a Victorian setting.
Peckham’s close as we’ve mentioned - Peckham’s night and high life includes rooftop bars atop Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building. Peckham Plex Cinema is great (and there's a Picturehouse cinema on East Dulwich's Lordship Lane).
Bellenden Road’s best restaurants and cafes include Levan, The Coal Rooms, The Begging Bowl, Artusi and Ganapati (with takeaway too on Maxted Road). For more options, Dulwich, Herne Hill and Brixton are all close.
