Camberwell Station Road, Camberwell
Delightful Victorian two bed purpose-built maisonette of 1130 square feet (excluding the massive loft) delivered over first and second floors - with own front door at ground floor level, Freehold-share, and private sunny roof terrace.
It’s set on a cool corner with just one property below, close to Myatt’s Fields (Victorian) Park plus it's pretty surrounding conservation areas.
You have three Fare Zone 2 stations at your feet in 15 minutes: Denmark Hill, Loughborough Junction, and Oval - for the tube. You can also grab many a central-bound bus from nearby Camberwell New Road; with its beautiful Georgian architecture to admire on the journey.
This place has buckets of character, as well as plenty of windows, high ceilings, a favoured east-west orientation (light throughout, throughout the day) and well-considered built-in storage. Permit-parking just outside keeps things simple.
Your front door is at the side of the building. Once in you take the stairs up and you’ll first find the property’s windowed and modern bathroom with white suite and concealed plumbing, brick-style ceramic tiling, and an over bath shower (plus separate spray attachment).
From the landing it’s a right into the large eat-in kitchen of over 13 feet by over 13. Quarry tiles are underfoot and the kitchen units are free-standing in style. There’s also alcove shelving and a pretty original feature fireplace. You’re open-plan (by design not compromise) to the massive reception room which is over 19 feet (the width of the building) by over 13. Lovely for entertaining. Here, you have another charmer of a fireplace and stripped, painted boards to the floor. Two west-facing sash windows and bespoke alcove storage also feature.
It’s a similar pleasingly-large footprint on floor two, with the low-maintenance roof terrace atop the bathroom (access it at half-landing level on the ascent to the second floor).
The master bedroom has pale carpet to the floor and a calming blue hue to the walls. It’s a huge double (over 18 feet by over 13); you can go supersize with your furniture! Adjacent is the second double bedroom of 13 feet by 13, which is fitted-out with a big bank of built-in wardrobes to its northerly wall.
There’s more storage (a large cupboard) on the landing, and here you can also access the big loft which is excellent for further storage, and it could also be a future extension project (with the relevant permissions being obtained).
You’re pleasingly-close to Camberwell’s arty town centre with an effortlessly-cool scene with eateries and drinkeries galore. We like The Hermits Cave, Silk Road, The Camberwell Arms and Theo’s, in particular. There are also loads of cosy cafes (The Pigeon Hole cafe, for example), alongside handy high street shops and banks, and a Morrisons supermarket etc. Camberwell Lanes is one to watch for the future.
Coldharbour Lane (the big road up to Brixton) is also close for more options: we love Three Eight Four for happy hour (or any hour) cocktails and small plates, Nanban for surprising Japanese/Brixton fusion food, and Mamma Dough for sourdough pizzas paired with craft beers. And the foodie options at Brixton Village (street food heaven and more) are fab too.
You’re well-positioned to enjoy glorious Myatt’s Fields Park with bandstand, tennis courts and impressive floral displays, plus weekly Farmers’ Market; there’s another of those on Camberwell Green (where you’ll find Camberwell Library) as well. Ruskin Park is close too. Camberwell has a good leisure centre on Artichoke Place, plus Zen Yoga Studio and Butterfly Tennis Club at the bottom of beautiful Camberwell Grove.
The centres of Brixton, Herne HIll and Peckham are also easily reached via bus, foot or cycle.
