Camberwell Grove, Camberwell

Classy and bright two double bedroom apartment of 824 square feet, with both bath and shower rooms, generous and well-maintained communal gardens/private grounds, and underground secure allocated parking.

Find the handsome pad on the second floor of The Mary Datchelor School development (architects Rolfe Judd for St. George, 2010). It is a pleasingly-leafy location, within Camberwell Grove Conservation Area. 

Walk just eight minutes to Denmark Hill Station, or three to Camberwell Church Street - for shops, restaurants, bars and buses.

The two Victorian former school buildings have been sensitively restored and converted to an incredibly high standard - enjoy high-end fixtures and fittings and impressive attention to detail throughout (including under floor heating). Entering into the main hall through the main entrance/huge original wooden doors feels a real event. Communal areas have a contemporary treatment which pays great respect to original features. 

In your own front door, to your immediate left is a generous built-in closet for coats and such. Straight ahead and you open to the larger of your bedrooms, with a built-in wardrobe and sleek en suite shower room. 

Adjacent is the other double (a respectable 10 feet by nearly 13 feet). Both bedrooms have pale carpet to the floor. 

The property’s main bathroom has an over-bath shower, large profile tiling, under floor heating, and a stainless steel heated towel radiator. 

The main event awaits: a large reception room running over 24 feet, which is open-plan to the smartest of kitchens - with square floor tiles, plentiful cupboard space, stone counters (including a breakfast bar/bar) and splashback, and high-end integrated appliances. Engineered oak flooring features in the lounge and dining spaces.

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).

Denmark Hill Station is a short 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 close, as is The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School (on Lyndhurst Grove). 

A large Sainsbury’s store is located on Dog Kennel Hill, or nip down to the M&S Food Hall on Lordship Lane. Grove Lane Deli is a couple of minutes from your door and check out Gladwell's for more luxury groceries. 

Central Camberwell has loads of great spots to eat and drink with mates - some of our favourites are The Camberwell Arms, Hermits Cave, Forza Win, Little Cellars, Veraison Wines, Nandine and Theo’s. 

Zen Yoga Studio is close and also Butterfly Tennis Club. Camberwell’s leisure centre is nearby too, in a grand Victorian setting. 

South London is laden with green space - some local bits we like include Lettsom Gardens, St. Giles Churchyard, Brunswick Park, Myatt’s Fields Park, Ruskin Park and Lucas Gardens. Brockwell Park, Peckham Rye Park & Common, Burgess Park and even Dulwich and Greenwich Parks are all easily reached too. 

For more restaurants and social options, Peckham (Ganapati is our top recommendation here), Brixton, Herne Hill and East Dulwich are all SE5’s neighbouring towns with lots of independent offerings, plus markets, pop-ups and the like.
