Deronda Road, Herne Hill
Beautiful late C19th Victorian bay-fronted semi of 2257 square feet (excluding a handy cellar) - with six bedrooms, delivered over three full floors, and boasting a mature south-facing garden of circa 40 feet. Freehold.
Find the house but a few minutes from historic and beautiful Brockwell Park, about half a mile from Herne Hill station and town centre. And Tulse Hill Station is a seven minute walk.
Open into a welcoming high-ceilinged hall with lots of pleasing stripped original pine detail. To your right is a formal front reception of over 17 feet by over 12 feet.
Next door is a second stripped-floored reception of over 13 feet by over 10 feet. Alcove shelving features, and you’ve got French doors out to the side-return area of the garden.
Next from the hall you’ve got a little lobby area with back door (to the side passage) and door to the basement. Then next you’ve got a downstairs w.c. next to a shower room. Both are windowed. At the foot of the hall is your charming kitchen/diner (over 14 feet by nearly 13 feet), with stripped French doors in a big bay, onto your gorgeous garden.
Up to the first floor and you’ve got two very big bedrooms above the receptions, a dressing room (or could be an office - over the front door), a simple bathroom with independent loo next door, and a very generous utility room (which could easily become bedroom number seven), with pretty garden views.
The second floor hosts four bedrooms: three good doubles and one large single. The fireplaces up here will bring on the smiles.
Tulse Hill or Herne Hill stations make the commute or London adventures simple with regualar trains to Victoria and Blackfriars. Many well-regarded primary schools are winthin a short walk of the house; the closest being Rosendale (Ofsted-rated 'Outstanding'), Fenstanton and Holy Trinity. Dulwich's independent schools are but a short drive away.
Herne Hill has a brilliant high street area, and a selection of very pleasant cafés and bars around Herne Hill station yard. Examples are Sesami, Sicilian and there's a branch of Blackbird (bakery). Plus a weekly Farmers' Market - where you'll likely spot a local celebrity or two. We also love Herne Hill books for gift shopping and Llewelyns for high-end dining.
Brockwell Park plus Lido and gym are seriously local, and community events include the Lambeth Country Show held each July. It's been running since 1974.
