Grove Hill Road, Camberwell
Garden flat alert! Here’s a charming one bed ground floor Victorian conversion pad of 523 square feet, with a pretty and private long rear garden (which stretches 60 feet). Another box-ticker is a Freehold-share.
The property sits on a leafy residential street on lovely high ground, near Lettsom Gardens and gorgeous Camberwell Grove.
You’re 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. Brixton is also fairly close for more options.
In the shared main door and your front door is straight ahead. From the hall, the bathroom is on your right. This is a neat internal one with a modern white suite and over bath shower. Your reception room rests to your left - this is over 14 feet by 11 feet, with a big south-facing bay window, and a period feature fireplace, with marble surround.
Next on your right from the hall is the sash-windowed double bedroom (more crisp white walls here), of over 10 feet by over 9 feet.
Your double-aspect eat-in kitchen is found at the foot of the hall. Find modern units and a tiled floor here, plus the back door out to the garden. 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 also 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, Thai at The Begging Bowl, or vino at The Sourcing Table perhaps), 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.
