Linwood Close, Camberwell
Bright two bedroom maisonette (ground and first floor) of 689 square feet, with double-glazed windows throughout, a long lease, and a designated parking space. Chain free.
Find the pleasing property within a low-rise purpose-built private development which is set in well-tended, leafy communal grounds - which even boast a mature woodland and communal BBQ area!
Peckham Rye and Denmark Hill stations (both Fare Zone 2) are your closest - walk 10 and 12 minutes - for regular and London Overground services.
What a spot! You’re near to both Camberwell Grove and Holly Grove conservation areas - in prime Camberwell/Peckham Rye borderland - giving you easy access to both town centres and their respective green spaces. East Dulwich is a short stroll too.
In your own front door and you land in a generous hall with coat closet. Straight ahead, and you’re in the huge reception room of over 17 feet by 14 feet. Welcome features include a (west-facing) square bay window, an accent wall, a modern vertical radiator, and smart engineered oak to the floor.
The kitchen is an independent one set off the reception, with modern fitted Shaker-style wall and base units, granite counters, and a double-glazed window above the sink.
Up to the first floor and you’ll find your two generous carpeted bedrooms - both with west-facing windows. The property’s windowed bathroom completes the floor; where contemporary sanitary ware and fittings impress (including an over-bath shower and under-basin storage).
Such a well-connected location for work, and for leisure and social pursuits. London Bridge, London Victoria, Clapham Junction, Kings Cross St Pancras and Canary Wharf (via Canada Water) - among other destinations - are all quickly reached.
Bellenden Road is yours by foot in under 10 minutes - with delicious eateries such as Artusi, The Begging Bowl and Ganapati, and popular independent shops such as Flock & Herd, The General Store and Review. Petitou on Choumert Road is a lovely spot for a coffee and people-watching.
Rye Lane offers more high street and market shopping options, plus the trendiest of hangouts - such as Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building. Go vertical in the warm months for rooftop bars here.
There’s more to come for the area too: Peckham Rye Station is being improved and reworked, with the area around it, and watch this space for The Peckham Coal Line.
Central Camberwell is a 12 minute walk - down beautiful Camberwell Grove - flanked with mature London plane trees and dreamy Georgian houses. Here we love The Camberwell Arms, Silk Road, Grove House Tavern and The Crooked Well especially.
Camberwell leisure centre is also local with a smart Victorian pool, gym facilities and group classes. Or skip down to Butterfly Tennis Club or Zen Yoga (both even closer, at the foot of Camberwell Grove).
Lettsom Gardens is popular with locals, as is Warwick Gardens. Ruskin, Brunswick, Peckham Rye and Burgess Parks are all fairly close too, plus Lucas Gardens and St. Giles Churchyard.
A large Sainsbury’s store is close by on Dog Kennel Hill, by Dulwich Hamlet Football Club. And there’s a handy M&S Food Hall by East Dulwich Station.
