Camberwell Grove, Camberwell
An exquisite, high-ceilinged, hall floor apartment of 1085 square feet, set within a grand Regency terrace. This type and quality of property doesn’t come along very often! Yours to enjoy are three double bedrooms, bath and shower rooms, a large kitchen/diner, and an enormous reception room. You also have off street parking and a private garden which is accessed via a few stairs from the kitchen. 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. Share of Freehold.
You’re sitting at the top end of Camberwell Grove; one of south London’s finest offerings, within Camberwell Grove conservation area. The street is well-known for its 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. The smart street was dedicated a charming episode in the BBC series ‘The Secret History of Our Streets’, which is well worth a watch!
The property benefits from a parking space to the front of the terrace, on the generous and shingled drive. Take a few steps up to the front door in gloss black with handsome brass door furniture, and open into a smart communal hall. Your front door is set ahead. On entry there’s a handy built-in coat closet to your immediate right. Turn left for the reception room which is larger than you’ll find in most houses (18 feet by 15 feet). Period features in here will have you all aglow: sash windows (swoon at the painted-timber box shutters), a feature fireplace, ceiling rose and cornicing. Solid wood floors also impress. The main bathroom is just off the hall, next door, and adjacent to this is a beautiful master bedroom with timber-framed, glazed French doors onto a small balcony, as well as a modern en suite shower room with brick-style, ceramic tiling (styled as the main bathroom). A built-in wardrobe fills a large alcove floor to ceiling; a welcome decision. Moving through the property, next up is the kitchen/diner with a deftly-chosen mix of wall and base units in contrasting finishes, oak counters, a ceramic sink and built-in appliances. French, timber-shuttered doors lead from here to the garden that's a practical yet pretty paved and decked private space, to partake in al fresco dining with friends, playtime with the kids, or a spot of me-time listening to the wind through the tall trees. Two neat and carpeted bedrooms to front and rear complete the tour, and each has a smart sash window and a generous built-in closet.
Little ones present or on the horizon? Local primary schools include Lyndhurst and Dog Kennel Hill. The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School are also nearby, on Lyndhurst Grove. 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 and Peckham Rye Park and Common's 113 acres.
You’re on lovely 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 8 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, Ganapati and Anderson’s, for starters), Camberwell Church Street (in central Camberwell we like Theo's, The Camberwell Arms and The Hermits Cave) and Lordship Lane (for The Palmerston, The Cheese Block, SMBS Foods and Franklin's, among other treats). A large Sainsbury’s store is local on Dog Kennel Hill, or nip down to new 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. 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.
