Crofton Road, Camberwell
Characterful Victorian conversion apartment within a bay-fronted terrace, with a private south-west facing garden, plus Planning Permission in place to extend and convert to a two bedroom flat. Share of Freehold.
Find the property in a leafy and well-connected residential setting on a ‘Lyndhurst toast-rack’ street, close to both Camberwell and Peckham centres. Denmark Hill and Peckham Rye’s Zone 2 stations are each only a 10-12 minute walk.
From the shared hall (there’s just one flat above you), your own front door is on your left. Through here and left again is your big front reception - of over 14 feet by over 12 feet, featuring bespoke shutters to the bay window, and a beautiful marble surround to the central cast iron fireplace. Stripped original floors and alcove shelving further impress.
Next up (and again with high ceilings), you have your double bedroom, with generous custom-made wardrobes to both alcoves. This room is over 12 feet by over 10 feet. A large double-glazed door opens to the side-return area of the garden.
Before you reach your kitchen/diner, your handy cellar is accessed via a door to your right. This is circa 100 square feet and very useful for storage.
The kitchen/dining room runs over 15 feet, with large sash window, and with painted navy units paired with marble worktops. Pattern-painted floorboards are a further treat.
Beyond this room is a little lobby with part-glazed trad-style back door out to the lovely and sunny garden, and a door to the windowed bathroom (where you have a neat white suite, over bath shower and under basin storage).
A hot home and a hot spot! Peckham and Camberwell are equally close for things to do and places to go. Each one has a good leisure centre. South London Gallery is minutes from your door, as are lovely newcomers TOAD bakery and South London Louie - for coffee/brunching.
Camberwell gems old and new include The Camberwell Arms, Momo, Nandine, Hermits Cave, Theo's, Veraison Wines, Little Cellars and Forza Win.
In Peckham, you can enjoy rooftop cocktails at Frank’s and/or atop The Bussey Building, and delicious eats can be found at The Begging Bowl, The Coal Rooms, Levan, Miss Tapas, Artusi and Ganapati (just a handful of the gastronomic options!). There's a good cinema as well: Peckham Plex.
Parks? Lettsom Gardens, Warwick Gardens, Lucas Gardens, Peckham Rye Park and Common, Ruskin, Brunswick and Burgess Parks are all local. There’s even more bubbling for this patch of London - one to watch is The Peckham Coal Line linear park.
