Kenbury Street, Camberwell
Chain free three bed (and two bath) extended Victorian terrace. It's delivered over three floors and circa 1391 square feet, in a cool Camberwell spot, with Brixton and its tube station close by too.
Walk just eight minutes to Loughborough Junction Station, or 10 to Denmark Hill Station. Your closest big road is Coldharbour Lane - which connects (SE) Camberwell with (SW) Brixton, and is great for London-bound buses.
A neat walled front garden sets the house back from the street. In your front door and first on your left is the front formal reception, of over 12 feet each way. Welcome features include bespoke shutters to the window, and a wood-burner. You can keep cold nights cosy.
Adjacent is a second reception, of over 11 feet by 9 feet. Another wood-burner features. It’s open here to the huge kitchen/dining room (extended from the house’s original footprint), which runs over 19 feet by over 16 feet.
The fitted kitchen is a timeless Shaker-style, with a large central island/bar. Timber worktops are a nice decision. Painted boards are underfoot. Wall-spanning double-glazed folding doors deliver you to the paved and part-walled ‘city’ garden, which is pleasingly low-maintenance and perfect for your potted pleasures.
The first floor hosts two double bedrooms (to front and rear, each with a built-in cupboard) and a modern shower room. Up again and you’ll find a huge third double (and double-aspect) bedroom - this time with an en suite bathroom. Which has a white suite, over bath shower, metro-style tiling and traditional-style fittings. Generous eaves storage is accessed from this bathroom.
Central Camberwell has a strong offering of places to eat and drink for all budgets, alongside useful shops, banks and a Morrison’s supermarket. Some of our favourite restaurants are The Camberwell Arms, Silk Road, Forza Win and Theo’s. Cafe culture is strong too. Love Walk Cafe is particularly popular. For luxury groceries, head to Gladwell’s or Grove Lane Deli. For wine, Veraison is a fairly new big hit. Little Cellars is the newest addition.
In the opposite direction - headed for Brixton, we like Mamma Dough and Nanban (Brixton Village/Japanese fusion) on Coldharbour Lane, and Three Eight Four - for delicious cocktails and small plates. Central Brixton is home to established greats: The Brixton Academy and The Ritzy Cinema. And Brixton Village serves up the best street food you could wish for.
Ruskin and Myatt’s Fields Parks are your local Victorian parks: both have bandstands and community events galore, and Brockwell Park with its popular lido is an easy bus ride or cycle. Camberwell Green hosts a Saturday Farmers’ Market 10am-2pm.
Keeping fit is easy round this way with Camberwell leisure centre on Artichoke Place a short stroll away, plus yoga studios and private gyms.
