Grove Hill Road, Camberwell
Best and final offers invited by midday, Thursday 14th April 2022.
A rare-to-market one bedroom Victorian conversion garden flat near gorgeous Georgian Camberwell Grove. The private mature private garden stretches over 55 feet, with direct access from the eat-in kitchen. Leasehold.
Renovated in 2021; enjoy a new kitchen and bathroom, new doors (with antique brass handles and fittings), interior walls in Fired Earth’s ‘Marble’, Italian vertical radiators, and hardwood brushed and oiled oak flooring throughout.
There’s obvious potential to extend once-in, and Planning Permission has been granted to remodel to the rear and gain a second double bedroom - fully exploiting the property and plot. Architect’s plans are included in the sale.
You’re on lovely high ground here, and pleasingly-close to three Zone 2 stations: Denmark Hill, East Dulwich (walk nine minutes to either of these) and Peckham Rye (14). The centres of Camberwell, East Dulwich and Peckham are all a short walk.
In the neat shared hall and your front door is on your left. Left again and you land in the large reception room of over 15 feet by over 12. It’s blessed with a large square bay window and built-in alcove shelving.
Adjacent is the double bedroom of over 11 feet by over 10, with off-white wool carpet to the floor. French doors open here - delivering you to the side return area of the garden.
Moving through the flat you have generous storage to your right, then a wide hall, off of which a sliding door opens to the bathroom. This has neutral ceramic tiled walls, a rustic porcelain floor, a white Victorian Chatsworth suite, Burlington chrome fixtures, and walls in Farrow & Ball’s ‘Ammonite’.
On through for the eat-in kitchen of over 11 feet by over 10 feet. It’s double-aspect with a Crittall back door opening in the far right hand corner. Garden views are delightful from the enlarged rear window.
The fitted kitchen (Wren) has a handmade Fired Earth tiled splashback, AEG oven with Smeg hob, Zanussi washing machine, bespoke shelving painted in Farrow & Ball’s ‘Elephant’s Breath’, and a vintage-style porcelain sink with antique bronze factory wheel tap.
The well-established garden has been levelled, and has a big vegetable garden. There’s scope for a cabin/home office. It’s a surprisingly-peaceful escape (bar the birdsong) from the hustle and bustle of the well-connected location. The garden borders other gardens to each side and backs onto Lettsom Gardens.
You’ll want for very little in this top spot. Grove Vale and Lordship Lane are local for independent shops, groceries, eateries and drinkeries galore. Top spots include Blackbird Bakery, The EDT, Franklins, William Rose, The Cheese Block, SMBS and Moxons. The Picturehouse cinema is great as well.
Or nip down to Theo’s, Nandine, The Crooked Well, The Camberwell Arms, or newcomers Grove Lane Deli and Gladwell’s in central Camberwell - for great grub/luxury groceries. Here you’ll also find a good leisure centre and yoga studio.
Alternatively, stroll to Bellenden Road (for Keralan cuisine at Ganapati or Thai at The Begging Bowl), or to Rye Lane for The Bussey Building & Copeland Park complex and Peckham Levels. Of the summer months it is all about the rooftop cocktails!
There’s a big Sainsbury’s store locally on Dog Kennel Hill, or grab some market life on Rye Lane or North Cross Road. Other eating and drinking establishments worthy of note locally include The Phoenix, The George Canning, The Victoria Inn and The Hermits Cave.
Local parks include the ‘secret’ Lettsom Gardens (a key to which is yours for a nominal annual fee), Ruskin Park, Warwick Gardens, Peckham Rye Park and Common, and Goose Green.
