Cormont Road, Camberwell
1800 square feet of divine converted Victorian seminary (theology school) within St Gabriel’s Manor, with a huge low-maintenance terrace. You also have an allocated secure parking space, and good security - including a daytime caretaker. Share of Freehold.
In current configuration, the delightfully-unusual home has four bedrooms and loads of flexible, lofty reception and work/creative space, and both bath and shower rooms.
The building is situated opposite Myatt's Fields Park. Your own front door is accessed from a paved courtyard. You land immediately in the massive main reception which stretches over 27 feet by over 18 feet. Epic ceiling height, a double-aspect and wooden floors all impress. It’s a natural entertaining room. You’ll need big furniture!
A double bedroom (11 feet by over 10 feet) rests to your left of the hall area, and next door is a generous internal bathroom with contemporary white sanitary ware and an over bath shower.
Access the kitchen from the left top corner of the reception space. You’ve got timeless white modern fitted base units in here, topped with granite counters.
Up the stairs and you first arrive at a pleasing mezzanine area - a natural and wonderfully-bright library and study zone.
Two further double bedrooms are situated on this first floor - the larger of the two has an en suite shower room with cool pocket door.
Up to the second floor and you’ve got a fabulous loft floor with exposed beams, vaulted ceilings, and French doors out to your private and sizeable decked terrace.
Directly opposite you’ve got Myatt’s Fields Park: a genuine London hidden gem of a small Victorian park with Green Flag status, 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.
You’re pleasingly-close to Camberwell’s arty town centre with its effortlessly-cool scene with eateries and drinkeries galore. We like Grove House Tavern, The Hermits Cave, The Crooked Well, Silk Road and The Camberwell Arms in particular.
There are also loads of cosy cafes alongside handy high street shops and banks, and a 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 and craft beers. And the foodie options at Brixton Village (street food heaven and more) are fab too.
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. And Oval tube is just 10 minutes away, taking you into The City or West End in a further 10 minutes.
