Crofton Road, Camberwell

Viewings commence Saturday 11th May.

Architect-treated four bed, two bath Victorian bay-fronted terraced house and low-maintenance west-facing garden, on a tree-lined residential Lyndhurst toast-rack street.

Find it between Peckham Rye and Denmark Hill Zone 2 stations — walk to these in nine and ten minutes respectively. Both are Fare Zone 2 and on the Overground network. Permit-parking is on-street. 

You are also close to The Villa Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School (2-7), and to Lyndhurst Primary School. 

Inclusive of the handy cellar, the handsome home measures in at 1634 square feet, and is delivered over three floors. It is immaculately presented throughout, with loads of welcome features and additions. Our favourite bits include the wood burning stove and marble fireplace combo, custom-made shutters to many windows, high ceilings, stripped floors, cast-iron radiators, and the gorgeous box window and seat (incorporating storage) in the epic kitchen/diner. 

A neat front garden sets you back from the street. Open the original Victorian front door to the hall space, and find the large double-reception set to your left. The front reception is 15 feet by over 12; the second is 12 feet by over 10. Both rooms have ornate coving detail.

Step down at the foot of the through-room to the large kitchen/dining room, noting the wonderful woodwork/shutters as you do. You can also access the kitchen/diner from the foot of the hall (past a handy guest w.c. and large built-in utility cupboard).

It is a functional and inspiring space — so much more interesting than the obvious bi-fold door setups; by Mark Reeves Architects — of over 15 feet by 15 feet, with the slickest of modern kitchens with high-end integrated appliances, marble counters, a central island with breakfast bar functionality, and underfloor heating. The space is especially bright thanks to the massive glazed pivot door, large roof light, and its west-facing orientation. 

Up to the half-landing and you will find a rear bedroom of over 13 feet by over 9, with sash window and pale carpet. Adjacent is a single bedroom/nursery/home office, in a deep navy hue. 

From the landing proper, find a large master bedroom to the front of the building (at over 16 feet by 12) — with two windows to charming street views and beautiful built-in closets. Next door is a large and luxury bathroom with high-end contemporary sanitary ware, an independent shower, and a feature fireplace. 

The second floor hosts your fourth and final bedroom which is double-aspect and has an additional skylight window in the roofline ceiling, too. It is 14 feet by over 9. Next door is a neat modern shower room. 

Local green spaces include Warwick, Lucas and Lettsom Gardens (bag yourself a key for the latter for a small fee), Peckham Rye Park and Common, and Ruskin and Burgess parks. 

There are plenty of useful bus routes from Peckham Road, at the bottom of the road, including the 436 (Paddington and Victoria), the 12 (Oxford Circus) and the 171 (Holborn). You will also find The South London Gallery on the main road. 

Central Peckham is a cultural and gastronomic mecca. Check out Bellenden Road, Choumert Road and Blenheim Grove for some top restaurants, bars and cafes (Artusi, Levan, The Begging Bowl and Ganapati to name a few), while Rye Lane gives you Peckham Levels and Bold Tendencies, and Frank's Bar and The Bussey Building's rooftop bars in the warmer months, plus Peckham Plex Cinema (films for just a fiver!). 

South London Gallery is close as well, and Camberwell leisure centre has good classes and gym and swim facilities in a pretty Victorian building. 

TOAD bakery, Grove Lane Deli and Gladwell’s in Camberwell are great spots for luxury groceries (the latter has a new Turner & George meat counter). Local recommended places to eat and drink in SE5 include Theo's, The Camberwell Arms, The Bear, Silk Road, Veraison Wines, Forza Win and The Hermits Cave. 

Kids or thinking of? The Villa Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School is close (2-7). As are Lyndhurst, Dog Kennel Hill and The Belham primary schools. The Dulwich independent schools are also but a short drive.
