Grove Vale, East Dulwich
836 square feet of delightful Victorian three bedroom flat in a dreamy corner position at the foot of Grove Vale, where it meets Lordship Lane and East Dulwich Road, at the end of Tintagel Crescent. It’s likely you’ve clocked and admired this impressive building before - it’s a belter. The generously-sized flat sits atop Mind charity shop, at first floor level. Welcome features include built-in cupboards, high ceilings, sash windows, stripped floors and a pale decorative scheme.
You’re over the street from leafy Goose Green, and just a 5 minute walk from East Dulwich Station, or a 15 minute one from Peckham Rye Station (adding the extra option of London Overground services). Both are Zone 2. Long leasehold.
The access to the communal hall for the flats is directly from Grove Vale, to the right hand side of the shop. Up to the first floor for your own front door. Once in, the neat bathroom with white suite and over bath shower is straight ahead. Swing a right from the hall and the single bedroom sits off to your left, with two south-facing windows. It would also make a good home office or hobby room. Next door is the first of the double bedrooms, which extends 18 feet at its longest point. Another south-facing window features here, plus a large built-in wardrobe, and an en suite shower room at the foot of the room. This, and its position, makes it a cracking master bedroom, or it would suit a lodger or airbnb setup.
From the front door to your left, straight down the hall and you arrive at the second double bedroom which is 14 feet by nearly 12. Find built-in wardrobes, sash windows and a pale hue on the wall. Adjacent is the huge and double-aspect reception room which incorporates a slick white fitted kitchen and open shelf detail. The 20 foot long room is awash with daylight thanks to seven sash windows on the two external walls. You also have an opened-up fireplace, and brilliant verdant views across Goose Green and up Lordship Lane.
Walk 10 minutes for Peckham Rye Park and Common. Interestingly, neighbouring Goose Green was purchased in 1868 by Camberwell Vestry (at the same time as Peckham Rye Common) to save it from development. Phew!
Independent shopping, cafes, bars and restaurants are mere paces away on nearby Lordship Lane (we like The EDT, SMBS, The Cheese Block, Brick House Bakery, William Rose, Franklin’s and Tart to name a few!), and it’s an 11 minute walk to Bellenden Road for more delicious options, including Artusi, Anderson’s, Ganapati, Melange and The Begging Bowl. You also have a fairly new M&S Food Hall close at hand, as well as a large Sainsbury’s store up Grove Vale on Dog Kennel Hill. East Dulwich Picturehouse and Cafe and East Dulwich leisure centre are also local. For more options, Camberwell, Herne Hill and central Peckham are a simple bus or cycle ride.
