Grove Park, Camberwell
Offers in excess of £1,000,000.
Architect-designed three double bedroom duplex apartment of 1413 square feet (it’s huge!), over lower and upper ground floors, with a large private garden (to which you enjoy direct access), communal garden, secure underground parking, and a Freehold-share.
The pleasing pad - one of a boutique scheme which was completed in 2013 - has been owned just once since new. Find it on one of Camberwell Grove Conservation Area’s finest streets, positioning you between Peckham and Camberwell’s best bits and stations (walk nine minutes to Peckham Rye Station, or 11 to Denmark Hill).
Communal areas are smart and well-kept. Through your own front door, and from the hall, you’ll find the master bathroom to your right (contemporary white sanitary ware here plus an over bath shower), then the largest of your bedrooms - which boasts an en suite shower room, dressing area with built-in closets, and a southerly Juliet balcony.
Left of the front door and you’ve got two further bedrooms: both doubles with built-in wardrobes. Storage has been well-considered throughout.
Head downstairs for the main event: a massive open-plan sitting room/dining room/kitchen. Most of the room’s south-facing wall hosts large glazed sliding doors out onto your private and low-maintenance south-facing garden - fabulous for entertaining. Enjoy glorious amounts of sun out here. Beyond this is a communal garden (for you and the other seven apartments).
Back inside. Engineered oak flooring runs through the seating area, then you’ve got neat tiling for the dining and kitchen areas. The fitted kitchen has a timeless modern style, with wall and base units in two tones, topped with stone counters, and with a large island/breakfast bar. High-end appliances (we love the F&P drawer-style dishwasher) are integrated, and included in the sale. There's a plumbed utility cupboard also, and the floor is completed with a guest w.c.
Peckham Rye and Denmark Hill stations (both Fare Zone 2) are your closest, with main line and London Overground services. London Bridge, London Victoria, Clapham Junction, Kings Cross St Pancras and Canary Wharf (via Canada Water), among other destinations, are quickly reached.
A fine spot to call home. Fancy Bellenden Road is a 10 minute walk away, with eateries such as Artusi, The Begging Bowl and Ganapati, and independent shops which include The General Store, Review and Flock & Herd butchery.
Beyond these really local streets, Rye Lane offers up banks and handy high street shops, markets, Peckham Levels, Peckhamplex cinema, and The Bussey Building and Copeland Park complex.
Central Camberwell is a similar distance by foot. Here we like The Camberwell Arms, Gladwell’s (for delicious luxury groceries), Theo’s, Veraison Wines, The Vineyard, Nandine, Grove Lane Deli and The Crooked Well especially.
A large Sainsbury’s store is close by on Dog Kennel Hill, by Dulwich Hamlet FC. And there is a M&S Food Hall by East Dulwich Station.
Green space? Local Lettsom Gardens is popular with locals; you can get your key for a nominal yearly fee. Local parks include Ruskin Park - with bandstand events throughout the summer plus a delicious Farmers’ Market (10am start on Sundays), Warwick Gardens and Peckham Rye Park and Common.
