Camberwell Grove, Camberwell
Sensitively and beautifully renovated and enhanced, four double bed, three reception, two bath Georgian Freehold house of over 2200 square feet, over four full floors. It’s set on the westerly side of prestigious Camberwell Grove, with a south-west facing garden of circa 60 feet.
You’re in Camberwell Grove Conservation Area heartland - close to central Camberwell, Denmark Hill Station (Fare Zone 2), and Lyndhurst Primary School.
Boasting impressive architecture, 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).
Through the front door, you arrive in a lovely wide hall with built-in coat-closets to your left. Beyond this is a tidy guest w.c. with sliding door, and beyond that, a back door to the well-established and well-stocked rear garden which performs in every season.
The hall’s a T-shape with formal reception rooms to the front and rear of the house. The front room is over 14 feet by over 12 with stripped boards to the floor, an attractive (working) fireplace, and reinstated wooden shutters to the front windows (pleasingly this treatment is repeated throughout the house).
The rear reception is over 14 feet by over 11, with Morso wood-burner, and a gorgeous garden vista (the open view through to Grove Lane and beyond is particularly noteworthy here!) through a large timber-framed glazed door onto a delightful balcony.
On the generous yet cosy lower ground floor, you have a large dining room to the front of the house. It’s over 14 feet by over 12, with store (ideal for wine) and pantry areas. The large kitchen with central island is over 14 feet by nearly 17. Off the kitchen you have a utility room which also leads to a downstairs bathroom with contemporary fittings.
On the first floor you have two double bedrooms to the front and rear of the house; the front room is over 14 feet by over 12, with a wall-spanning glass-fronted Poliform fitted wardrobe. The rear bedroom is over 14 feet by over 11, with feature fireplace, alcove closet, and peaceful garden views. A neat wet room with rain-shower completes this floor, lit by a skylight.
The second floor has two further double bedrooms - both well-sized as downstairs. The front bedroom has stripped floors, alcove closets and an original feature fireplace, plus cast iron radiator. All rooms have cast iron radiators, apart from the kitchen/dining room with under floor heating, and one bedroom with a modern slim line radiator.
The fourth and final double bedroom has white painted floors, Little Greene’s ‘Jewel Beetle’ to the walls, and a free-standing bath (PP has been granted for an independent en suite bathroom should you prefer that setup - including the installation of an additional window). Loft storage is accessed from the landing area.
Denmark Hill Station is a seven 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 close. The Dulwich independent schools are but a short drive, 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 new M&S Food Hall on Lordship Lane. The Hill Bakery is a classy locals' favourite on Grove Lane (just delicious loaves, and delicious deli bits, too).
Central Camberwell has a strong gastronomic offering - some of our favourites are The Camberwell Arms, Silk Road and Theo’s. Nice pubs locally, too: The 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 four minutes) with its recently-refurbished pool and gym facilities in a grand Victorian setting.
South London is laden with green space - some local bits we like include Lettsom Gardens, St. Giles Churchyard, 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.
