Cormont Road, Camberwell
Lambeth’s Minet Conservation Area hosts this substantial and characterful Victorian semi-detached house over three floors, with five bedrooms and a well-established south-west facing garden (with side access).
There's more! You are facing marvellous Myatt’s Fields Park, and the house is being sold chain free.
The handsome home is in reasonable nick (please note though that the previous kitchen has been largely removed), but would welcome renovation and extension - you can create your dream pad! You have a head start here too, as PP has already been granted for the: ‘erection of a single storey ground floor side infill extension, enlargement of existing French doors to rear, plus installation of solar panels and roof lights’.
Myatt’s Fields (Victorian 14-acre) Park is mere strides from the door, as is the popular nursery ‘The Nest’. And your closest stations are Loughborough Junction (10 minutes by foot) and Stockwell, Oval and Denmark Hill (all within 20 minutes).
A traditional tiled path and a box hedge are a pleasing welcome. In your front door and immediately note the delightful high ceilings. A handy w.c. is tucked at the end of the hall. Two formal reception rooms rest to your left. The front room (twin sashes here) is 16 feet by over 12 feet. The rear room - a natural formal dining room - is over 11 feet by over 10 feet. French doors lead out from here to the side-return area of the garden.
The double-aspect kitchen diner stretches over 20 feet, to another set of French doors - these deliver you to the garden proper.
The garden has both lawned and paved areas, plus a handy shed which sits next to a mature palm.
Up to the first floor and the impressive scale continues. From the half-landing you’ve got a double bedroom (to verdant vistas) and the property’s windowed bathroom.
From the main landing, find another double (to your right - of over 12 feet by over 11 feet) and a vast master bedroom across the whole width of the house - it’s over 17 feet by over 16 feet.
The second floor serves up two further double bedrooms; the front room is over 17 feet by over 13 feet. The fifth and final bedroom is over 12 feet by over 11 feet.
What’s local? Myatt’s Fields Park is your closest green space: a gorgeous, listed Victorian-era park with lots of open space, fine bedding displays, tennis courts and a bandstand. The park benefited from an impressive renovation which was completed in 2010. It’s an awesome community resource and is one of Lambeth’s nine Green Flag Award-winning parks.
Camberwell is firmly on the map for good food. We particularly rate Theo's (stonebaked pizza), Grove Lane Deli on Grove Lane (loaves, coffee and sarnies), and The Camberwell Arms, Silk Road and Nandine (all on Camberwell Church Street).
For luxury groceries, you’ll enjoy Gladwell’s on Camberwell Church Street. Camberwell Green has a cute Saturday Farmers’ Market. Myatt’s Fields has one on Sundays (both begin at 10am). Your most local (and lovely) pub is The Bear.
Heading towards and into Brixton, you have great options too. We like Mamma Dough, Three Eight Four (for cocktails and small plates) and Banh Banh. And of course Brixton Village for its many and varied eateries to suit all budgets and tastes.
Camberwell Leisure Centre has a large Victorian pool and gym facilities, and a good range of classes for adults and kids alike.
For cricket lovers, The Oval is a 20 minute walk.
Local schools include Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Crawford Primary, and Ofsted-rated ‘Good’ primaries: Comber Grove, St Joseph’s and Christ Church. You are also a short drive from the Dulwich independent schools, including Dulwich College, Alleyn’s and JAGS.
Getting around is easy. Grab a bus to the City, West End or Whitehall from Brixton Road; or to Victoria, Hyde Park and Paddington from Camberwell New Road. Or trot to Stockwell, Oval or Brixton for the tube (Victoria and Northern lines), or Loughborough Junction or Denmark Hill stations.
