Coleman Road, Camberwell
Offers in excess of £899,950.
On a tree-lined Camberwell side-street near Burgess Park, find this bay-fronted three double bedroom Victorian terraced house of 1191 square feet, retaining a good number of original period features, and incorporating a brilliant rear/side-return extension. Further substantial extension potential remains to the loft space.
The property’s mature rear garden stretches over 34 feet and faces south-west: gets lovely sun.
Enjoy lots of reception space, both bath and shower rooms, notable scale (this house is no cottage!) and very strong eco-credentials - great care was taken by the owner in this regard. High-performance insulation was retrofitted, and all windows are double-glazed, and backed up with a feed-in tariff 2kWp solar electric system (earning circa £700 per annum) and solar hot water. The result is an EPC rating 'C' - incredible for a Victorian terrace, and cheap to run.
Central Camberwell is a 10 minute walk, and central Peckham is at your feet in 15. Denmark Hill and Peckham Rye stations are each a 15-20 minute walk. Or grab a bus to central London from Wells Way or Camberwell Church Street/Peckham Road. Permit-parking is on-street.
In your front door to the welcoming hall. From here, a wooden-floored double-reception rests to your left. The front reception is over 11 feet by over 13. The second reception is over 11 feet by over 9. Period doors connect or divide the spaces. Both rooms have attractive fireplaces; the second reception hosting a wood-burner with back boiler (with DEFRA approval for smoke control zones).
Past the original staircase and bannisters and along the hall, you can access the under-stairs storage cupboard. Opposite this is a door to a little courtyard space. Open the door at the foot of the hall and on your left you’ve got a well-appointed bathroom with traditional-style white sanitary ware and fittings, including a cast-iron roll-top bath. A Velux window is over the bath - brilliant for star gazing - and you have a regular window too.
The kitchen/dining room is a well-considered space of 14 feet by over 10 feet. The fitted kitchen wall and base cabinets are a timeless Shaker-style, in solid oak, with reclaimed teak worktops. A ceramic Butler sink sits under the window to garden views, with two Velux windows bathing the room in natural light. Wide French doors open from the dining area of the room onto the generous and well-established garden - complete with fruit trees. A deep bed runs alongside the path to a handy garden shed (which is staying).
Up the stairs and from the half-landing, below the clerestory window, you’ve got the first double bedroom at the back of the house; it’s pleasingly double-aspect, with verdant vistas. Next door is a neat and windowed shower room.
From the main landing you’ve got another double to your right (of over 11 feet by over 9 feet), and the master bedroom spans the front of the house - it’s over 15 feet by over 13 feet. All the bedrooms have stripped wooden floors.
A large loft is accessible from the landing. Currently it’s used for storage, but it obviously lends itself well to extension should you need more square feet in the future.
As mentioned, Burgess Park is close. You’re also within easy reach of Lucas Gardens, Ruskin, Brunswick and Kennington Parks.
Camberwell is your closest town centre. Here we love South London Gallery, newcomer-deli Gladwell’s, The Camberwell Arms, Theo’s, Hermits Cave, Good Neighbour, Silk Road, and the Victorian pool/gym on Artichoke Place.
You're also close to Peckham’s hot spots - Bellenden Road, Blenheim Grove and Rye Lane - for their gastronomic and social hubs including rooftop bars, plus handy high street shopping and independent shopping. Further foodie, social and leisure options are on offer in Dulwich, Herne Hill and Brixton.
Kids? Local primaries are strong and include St George’s (at the end of the street) and Lyndhurst. Both are Ofsted-rated ‘Good’. For nurseries, check out 1st Place (within Burgess Park, from six months), and The Villa (from two years).
