Grove Hill Road, Camberwell
Offers in excess of £1,300,000.
Victorian five double bed terraced house of 1666 square feet (excluding the handy cellar), delivered over three full floors, with both bath and shower rooms, and a long and lush garden - which extends over 50 feet. Permit-parking is available on-street for residents.
The property has been enjoyed for several decades by its late owner. It sits in a top spot with good bones; offering the incoming owner the chance to renovate/extend/both.
You’re pleasingly-positioned between three Fare Zone 2 stations: Denmark Hill (nine minutes), East Dulwich (also nine) and Peckham Rye (12). It’s a bit of a magic triangle in terms of connectivity! Buses are great from near here as well.
This is one of the best Camberwell/Peckham Rye borderland tree-lined streets - on lovely high ground, right by Camberwell Grove Conservation Area, and Lettsom Gardens.
A floral front garden fronts the house. In the front door and your formal double-reception rests to your right. The front room is over 15 feet by over 12 feet. The rear one is over 11 feet by over 10 feet. Both rooms have cast-iron period fireplaces with beautiful marble surrounds. Coving and ceiling rose detail further impress. A part-glazed back door opens out to the side-return area of the garden.
At the foot of the hall, access the cellar via a door to your left. Straight ahead of you is the eat-in kitchen - of over 14 feet by over 10 feet, with dated (but functioning) fitted units, and two windows onto the side return. Beyond the kitchen is a little lobby with a windowed shower room to your left, and a back door to your right. The garden’s well-established and well-stocked. And is framed by mature trees too… it’s hard to believe you’re so close to central London.
Up to the first floor and from the half-landing you’ve got a double bedroom with sash window to verdant vistas straight ahead, and the property’s main windowed bathroom to your right.
From the main landing is another good double (over 11 feet by nearly 11 feet), and - taking the width of the building - a triple-sashed master bedroom, of over 16 feet by over 12 feet. Another ceiling rose is a very welcome feature in here.
The second floor hosts two further double bedrooms to front and rear (of over 16 feet by over 12 feet, and of over 11 feet by nearly 11 feet). The front room boasts a cute feature fireplace.
You’re mere steps from Camberwell Grove Conservation Area here; with its beautiful Georgian, Edwardian and Victorian architecture. And London Bridge, London Victoria, Clapham Junction, Kings Cross St Pancras and Canary Wharf - via Canada Water - are all quickly reached, with multiple transport options close by.
Your local social hubs include Bellenden Road and Rye Lane (check out Artusi, Ganapati and The Begging Bowl on BR, and Peckham Levels, Forza Wine and The Bussey Building on RL), Camberwell Church Street (in central Camberwell we like Theo's, Momo, The Camberwell Arms and The Hermits Cave) and Lordship Lane (for Franklins, The EDT and William Rose - among other treats!).
For beans, washing powder and suchlike, a large Sainsbury’s store is local on Dog Kennel Hill, or nip down to the new M&S Food Hall by ED Station.
Grove Lane Deli serves delicious fresh loaves on nearby Grove Lane, where you'll also find The Crooked Well – both pub and restaurant. Camberwell newcomers Gladwell’s (luxury groceries) and Veraison Wines are proving very popular too.
The South London Gallery is a short stroll away and Camberwell leisure centre at the foot of Camberwell Grove on Artichoke Place has a good range of classes plus gym and swimming. Also at the foot of Camberwell Grove is Butterfly Tennis Club, and Zen Yoga studio next door.
Lettsom Gardens is a top local secret space with woodland and allotments (get your key for a nominal yearly fee). Local larger Victorian parks include Ruskin Park, Warwick Gardens and Peckham Rye Park and Common's 113 acres.
The local school options are excellent and include Lyndhurst, Dog Kennel Hill and The Belham primaries. The Villa Nursery & Pre-Preparatory School is also close on Lyndhurst Grove, and the Dulwich independent schools are a short drive.
