Grove Park, Camberwell

Supersized six bedroom semi-detached house with side access, over three full floors (plus a generous basement) with a glorious mature garden which extends circa 180 feet, and an awesome garden studio (with power) at its foot. Off-street parking and far-reaching views seal the deal. 

This hosting-friendly family home is notably generous in scale. It also serves up a pleasing blend of period features plus modern fuss-free decisions and finishes. You will also enjoy an architect-designed contemporary extension from your kitchen/diner: the perfect spot to enjoy that fabulous garden. 

Set within Camberwell Grove Conservation Area, Grove Park is an early C19th garden estate (off Georgian-house-flanked Camberwell Grove), later built up with handsome Edwardian suburban housing. It is famed particularly for its large and lush gardens - which are seriously hard to find in Zone 2, and which will nullify all ‘shall we move to the countryside?’ discussions. 

It’s hard to comprehend such a pretty and green spot can be so well-connected, but it is! Walk just nine minutes to Peckham Rye Station, or 12 to Denmark Hill Station - for regular and Overground services. 

Local schools include Lyndhurst and Dog Kennel Hill primaries, and the independent Dulwich schools are a short drive or cycle. The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. are also very close (2-7).

The house is fronted by a deep sweeping drive with parking for up to five cars. Historically there was a toll gate here - for access to the exclusive locale.  

In your front door and you open into a large and bright hall, where high ceilings impress from the off. Your front reception is set to your left - of 14 feet by nearly 16 feet. Welcome features include a marble fireplace, and picture rail, coving and panel detail. 

Beyond this room, stairs ascend, to your left. Neatly here you also have a downstairs w.c. and an independent utility room (with plumbing) with sliding door. 

Your open-plan kitchen/dining room awaits - a wonderful space for entertaining en masse, and for day to day life with your crew. Kitchen units are sleek and modern. High-end appliances are integrated and include an induction hob. Two sets of double-doors open to your huge garden. 

Your first floor delivers two double bedrooms to the rear of the building - to pretty garden vistas (these are over 12 feet by over 9 feet, and over 12 feet by over 10 feet), a large twin-windowed master to the front (which has a walk-in dressing room), and a modern windowed bathroom. 

Up again and your second floor hosts three further bedrooms (two are regular doubles and you have a large master one, too), and a windowed shower room. 

What a position! On delightfully-high ground, with trendy Bellenden Road just a short stroll away, and cool central Camberwell a similar distance. Zone 2 stations are an easy walk: London Bridge, London Victoria, Clapham Junction, Kings Cross St Pancras and Canary Wharf (via Canada Water), among other destinations, are all quickly reached. 

Lettsom Gardens is a top local secret space with woodland and allotments (get your key for a nominal yearly fee). Local larger parks include Ruskin Park, Warwick Gardens, Burgess Park, Peckham Rye Park and Common, Goose Green and Brockwell Park.

Local social hubs include Bellenden Road (check out Artusi and Ganapati), Rye Lane (for Forza Wine and Peckham Levels, The Bussey Building and more), Camberwell Church Street (in central Camberwell we like Theo's, Momo, The Camberwell Arms, Silk Road, Nandine and The Hermits Cave) and Lordship Lane (for The Cheese Block, SMBS Foods and Franklins). A large Sainsbury’s store is local on Dog Kennel Hill, or nip down to the M&S Food Hall on Lordship Lane. 

Grove Lane Deli serves delicious fresh loaves on nearby Grove Lane, where you'll also find The Crooked Well - both pub and classy restaurant. Grove House Tavern is a cool local pub too (recently taken over by the folks behind The Montpelier). 

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 swim facilities. Also at the foot of the hill is Butterfly Tennis Club, with Zen Yoga studio next door.
