Camberwell Grove, Camberwell
An exceptionally-spacious, raised ground floor apartment of 1100 square feet, with original features, three bedrooms, a separate kitchen, and a shared east-facing walled garden. Find it within a row of identical stucco-fronted Georgian houses at the top of Camberwell Grove, within Camberwell Grove Conservation Area. Share of Freehold.
Additionally, you’ve got potential for off-street parking (to the front of the building, on the gravel drive), and you have private storage space plus in-house bike parking available in the basement. The property is being sold chain free.
This is a genuinely rarely available offering; it's the size of your average Victorian three bed house, set within a grand Regency-style terrace, on one of the finest and most well-connected streets south of the river; Denmark Hill Station is gloriously close for Zone 2 regular and Overground trains. Central Camberwell, East Dulwich and Peckham are all within easy walking distance. Herne Hill and Dulwich are also close.
You’re sitting at the top, southerly end of Camberwell Grove. The street is well-known for its very beautiful architecture - Georgian in the main - and follows the line of a grove of plane trees which once led from a Tudor manor house south to the top of a hill, which afforded an excellent view of the City of London. In 2012, the des-res that is CG was dedicated a charming episode in the BBC series in ‘The Secret History of Our Streets’ (well worth a watch).
Take a few steps up to the main front door, and open into a smart communal hall with sweeping stairs up (to your neighbour’s flats). Your front door is set to the left of the impressive stairwell.
In your front door, turn left and you’re in the sizeable reception room - of over 19 feet by over 18 feet. The ceiling height’s sensational too! You have plenty of space to zone dining, seating and even work/hobby areas here. It's the scale of room in which you can go as big as you like with your Christmas tree! Two arched-sash windows with beautiful box work and shutters (stripped pine) impress, as do high skirtings, picture and dado rails, and stripped floors. A working fireplace completes the room.
Two of the three bedrooms are accessed from this room - these are over 14 feet by over 11 feet, and over 14 feet by over 7 feet. The third bedroom is accessed from the hall area - opposite the front door. This one’s over 9 feet by nearly 13 feet. All three bedrooms have fresh white walls, stripped floors, and east-facing sash windows to particularly verdant views (beyond the garden you’ve got Lettsom Gardens).
Take a right from the hall and you’ve got your fitted kitchen to your right. This is 12 feet by over 8 feet, with stripped floors and white fitted units. A sash window delivers pretty street views.
Next door is the independent w.c. then you’ve got the large bathroom with white sanitary ware and both bath and shower. A panel-glazed door opens onto a few metal stairs to the shared garden.
For little ones, popular local primary schools include Lyndhurst and Dog Kennel Hill. The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School are also nearby, on Lyndhurst Grove (2-7). Lettsom Gardens is a top local secret space with woodland and allotments (get your key for a nominal yearly fee). Local larger parks include Ruskin Park, Warwick Gardens, Burgess Park, Peckham Rye Park and Common, Goose Green and Brockwell Park.
You’re on delightfully-high ground here, and London Bridge, London Victoria, Clapham Junction, Kings Cross St Pancras and Canary Wharf, via Canada Water, are all quickly reached with multiple transport options close by. Denmark Hill is your closest station - walk there in eight minutes. East Dulwich and Peckham Rye stations are also close, plus there are lots of useful bus routes just a few minutes from your door.
Local social hubs include Bellenden Road (check out Artusi and Ganapati), Rye Lane (for Forza Wine and Peckham Levels, The Bussey Building and more), Camberwell Church Street (in central Camberwell we like Theo's, Momo, The Camberwell Arms, Silk Road, Nandine and The Hermits Cave) and Lordship Lane (for Terroirs, The Cheese Block, SMBS Foods and Franklin's). A large Sainsbury’s store is local on Dog Kennel Hill, or nip down to the M&S Food Hall on Lordship Lane.
The Hill Bakery serves delicious fresh loaves on nearby Grove Lane, where you'll also find The Crooked Well - both pub and classy restaurant. Grove House Tavern is a cool local pub too, recently taken over by the folks behind The Montpelier. The South London Gallery is a short stroll away and Camberwell leisure centre at the foot of Camberwell Grove on Artichoke Place has a good range of classes plus gym and swim facilities. Also at the foot of the hill is Butterfly Tennis Club and Zen Yoga studio next door.
