Crofton Road, Camberwell
Beautifully turned-out and feature-rich four double bedroom Freehold house with two entrances, loft and cellar space, and a wide, low-maintenance rear garden plus smart garden office (with green ‘living’ roof and large roof light).
Find it on a leafy Lyndhurst toast-rack street, close to both Camberwell and Peckham centres. Denmark Hill and Peckham Rye’s Zone 2 stations are but a 10-15 minute walk. Chain free.
The house has been renovated and interior-designed by the current owners to a really high standard, with loads of great homely touches, and it delivers real flexibility - with the option to rent part of the house as a self-contained studio setup on the ground floor.
The front garden’s a great welcome; landscaped with reclaimed paving sets stones and with a pretty picket fence. You also have a tap (and a self-watering system) and a secure bike shed which holds four bikes.
In the main front door and you land in a generous hall. Stripped floors and high ceilings set the scene. First on your left you have a huge eat-in kitchen of over 16 feet by over 13 feet, with big bay window and central island, solid wood counters, deep ceramic Butler sink, and gadget tap. Kitchen storage is generous: lots of cupboards and open shelves too.
Large doors divide you from or connect you to the property’s main reception room - which is a good size of over 12 feet by nearly 14. A handsome fireplace with electric stove is an attractive focal point. Old school style rads sit either side of the large French doors out to the east-facing garden.
A downstairs w.c. with under floor heating nestles neatly in under stairs position. Then you’ve got another reception (11 feet by nearly 10) - or use as studio room - with exposed brick wall. Beyond is a neat kitchenette and a shower room. Plus back door to the garden.
The part-walled and decked garden is home to a very cool garden office with power, and a swing!
Up to the first floor (noting the gorgeous staircase and bannisters) and the chunky proportions pleasingly continue. The largest of the three double bedrooms sits to the front of the house - it’s over 13 feet by over 14, with built-in wardrobes and shelving. The adjacent bedroom to the rear of the house is 14 feet by over 12 - again with built-in wardrobes.
Another double sits to the rear of the house - of 11 feet by nearly 10. A utility room (with basin, space for hanging clothes, waterproof flooring and a heated towel rail) and the property’s main bathroom - with free-standing bath - complete the first floor tour. Your fourth bedroom is on the second floor. Another double, of over 11 feet by nearly 10.
The loft space is usable as an office, media room or guest space, with staircase up and a skylight window. There’s obviously the option to further develop the loft should you fancy a future project.
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 and The South London Gallery is minutes from your door.
Camberwell gems include The Camberwell Arms, Hermits Cave, Theo’s for pizza and The Crypt under St. Giles Church. In Peckham, enjoy rooftop cocktails at Frank’s and/or Bussey Rooftop, or classy eats at Miss Tapas, Artusi and Ganapati (just a handful of the gastronomic options!).
Parks? Lettsom Gardens, Warwick Gardens, Lucas Gardens, Peckham Rye Park and Common, Ruskin and Burgess Parks are all local. There’s even more bubbling for this patch of London; The Peckham Coal Line for example.
Local schools include Lyndhurst and Dog Kennel Hill primaries. The Villa Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School (2-7) is also really local on Lyndhurst Grove - just at the top of the road.
