Knatchbull Road, Camberwell

Park-side Brunswick House and The Coach House (built circa 1871) are looking for new owners and custodians. What a dream proposition. 12 bedrooms, six bathrooms, and so much more! 

You will occupy an impressive and quiet sizeable corner plot, with a wonderful walled wraparound garden, and park and church spire vistas. The deep and wide rear garden (splendidly facing south-east) has a swimming pool, and both a generous lawn and a raised terrace (accessed from the main house). 

This is a particularly leafy residential spot within Lambeth’s Minet Conservation Area. You are tucked away from the hustle and bustle, yet extremely well-placed for connectivity to central London. And being directly opposite the lovely Myatt’s Fields Park, you will enjoy front-row open views from which to follow the seasons.

We’ll begin with The Coach House: this alone measures in at well over 1300 square feet. It has been cleverly architecturally-treated (by the previous owners) - maximising space and light, and has its own independent access/front door, and a wooden-gated parking bay/garden area to the front. Downstairs, you have a large and double-aspect formal reception room (of over 18 feet by over 13 feet), and next door there is a flexible space of over 27 feet by nearly 12 feet, which incorporates dining, kitchen and hall areas, and has lots of built-in storage. Upstairs are three large double bedrooms and two bathrooms (one is an en suite). 

Now for the grand main house: steps lead to your original oversized part-glazed front door in a pale blue hue, on the raised ground floor. The bright double-aspect entrance hall is one hell of a welcome, with sky-high ceilings, original tiles to the floor, and an incredible stairwell leading up (and up!) ahead. 

To your left and to the front of the house is a huge wooden-floored kitchen/dining/family room. It is over 20 feet by nearly 17 feet, and delivers delightful park views from big and tall sash windows. You are open-plan here to the large reception room/lounge, of over 16 feet by over 14 feet. Ornate coving, a working fireplace (with solid marble surround) and French doors out to the sunny terrace are all pleasing period features. 

To the rear of the floor, off the hall, find a lobby which hosts access to a downstairs w.c., a triple-aspect study (of 11 feet each way), and a second access point to the terrace. While we’re here, under the terrace, you have a really useful windowed workshop/storage space, running 25 feet by over 7 feet. This is accessed from the garden. 

The lower ground floor has a separate side door (a separate flat could easily be organised here) and three bedrooms - with flexibility for other uses, should you not require all 12 bedrooms. Games/media/study/home gym - you choose! You also have two windowed bathrooms. One is an en suite. A useful store is also accessed on this floor, to the front of the building, sitting underneath the front steps.

From the first floor’s light-filled main landing, find the huge master bedroom to the front of the house (the park views now gaining spectacular status!), of over 20 feet by over 14 feet, and complete with a double-aspect en suite bathroom with designer-papered walls. Adjacent is another big double - of over 16 feet by nearly 15 feet. This time you are gifted views over that fantastic garden and neighbouring ones, too. 

From the half-landing, you have a study/single bedroom to your right, and another double and double-aspect bedroom ahead (of 12 feet by 11 feet). 

The second floor is home to three large double bedrooms and another bathroom - with white suite and an independent shower. The back bedroom has a large built-in wardrobe. 

Your large, lush and well-established garden (with native and tropical planting) has been lovingly-maintained over multiple decades, and provides year-round colour and interest. There’s a Mediterranean-feel as you look to the pool from the terrace area, under the mature grape vines (which provide shade and shelter). Heaven! Summer gatherings and parties are a must. The pool is deep enough to practice your diving. At this end you also have a brick-built seating/lounging area. 

Brunswick House has been regularly used as a location for commercials, music videos and TV shows - carry this on if you fancy.

Myatt’s Fields Park is directly opposite. It is a genuine London hidden gem with Green Flag status, bandstand, tennis courts and impressive floral displays, plus weekly Farmers’ Market; there’s another of those on Camberwell Green (where you’ll find Camberwell Library) as well.

You are delightfully close to Camberwell’s ever-arty town centre with its effortlessly cool and growing scene of eateries and drinkeries galore. We like Veraison Wines, Little Cellars, Forza Win, Grove House Tavern, Hermits Cave, The Crooked Well and The Camberwell Arms in particular. Newcomer Palacsinta looks great as well, by Camberwell Green.

There are also lots of cute cafes (Lumberjack and Love Walk Cafe are popular, and you have The Little Cat Cafe in the park of course) among handy high street shops, banks, supermarkets and luxury grocery outlets (we rate Gladwell's and Grove Lane deli). Your most local pub is a good one under new and enthusiastic management: The Bear.

Coldharbour Lane (up to Brixton) is also close for more options: check out Three Eight Four for happy hour cocktails and the many foodie options at Brixton Village (street food bliss).

Ruskin Park is close, too, and the centres of Brixton, Herne HIll and Peckham are all easily reached via bus, foot or cycle.

Oval tube is just 10 minutes away, taking you into The City or West End in a further 10 minutes.
