Crofton Road, Camberwell
1900 square feet of extended and enhanced bay-fronted Victorian house over three floors, with five bedrooms (four doubles, one single), two bathrooms, a downstairs and an additional first floor w.c. and a handy cellar, on an oft-requested leafy Lyndhurst toast-rack street.
The cherry on top is a south-west facing, part-walled garden of over 40 feet (larger than average for these streets; an additional section having pleasingly been purchased by the property’s previous owners).
You’re close to both Camberwell and Peckham centres - near local landmark The South London Gallery. Denmark Hill and Peckham Rye’s Zone 2 stations are but a 10-15 minute walk apiece.
A large entrance hall welcomes you from the front door, and a beautiful bannister swirls up the stairs. High ceilings impress too. Turn left for the large double-reception which extends over 30 feet. At the foot of the room you have painted timber-framed French doors onto the smartly-paved area of the garden. High skirtings, alcove storage and period fireplaces feature throughout the through-space.
At the end of the hall past the stairs, take a right for a downstairs w.c. and the door to your kitchen/dining room - which is on your left. The kitchen/diner (with architect-input and cool roof light) extends over 20 feet by over 11. The fitted kitchen is a slick modern one, with recessed lighting. And large profile grey floor tiles connect the spaces.
High-quality folding doors open fully to deliver you to the hard area of the garden (where the floor tile pattern is repeated - connecting this space too). Steps lead up to a generous lawn.
Upon the first floor, first you’ll find a single bedroom to the front of the house (7 feet by over 6). This obviously works well as a study too. Next door is a charming master bedroom with exposed floor boards, bespoke window shutters, and built-in alcove wardrobes. It’s over 13 feet each way. Another double sits behind with garden views from its lovely big sash window - this one is over 13 feet by over 12, and also features built-in closets to each alcove.
A sash-windowed oversized bathroom (with contemporary white sanitary ware and both bath and independent shower) sits to the rear of this floor, and an additional windowed w.c. is found opposite the bathroom’s front door.
The glorious stairwell is lit via sash and skylight windows. Up to the second floor and you’ll land on a lovely fourth bedroom - another sash-windowed double, of over 11 feet by over 9.
Up a few more stairs and you’ll discover the converted loft which delivers a master suite with bedroom and Juliet balcony (with bespoke shutters to the French doors) plus modern shower room, with skylight window, and accessible eaves storage.
Lovely house. Lovely location. Peckham and Camberwell are equally close. Camberwell gems include local parks Lucas Gardens, Brunswick Park and St. Giles Churchyard. Bigger Burgess, Ruskin and Peckham Rye Parks are close too.
For food and drink, check out The Camberwell Arms, The Hermits Cave, The Crooked Well and Theo’s. In Peckham, enjoy rooftop cocktails in the warmer months at Frank’s or on The Bussey Building's rooftop, or classy eats at Miss Tapas, Artusi, The begging Bowl and Ganapati. Rye Lane is also good for general shopping, banks and fruit and veg stalls.
Local schools include Lyndhurst, Dog Kennel Hill and The Belham primaries. The Villa Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School (2-7) is also really local on Lyndhurst Grove - just at the top of the road.
