Love Walk, Camberwell
A tucked-away and rarely-available, early C20th house of 1431 square feet, with four bedrooms (three doubles, one single) and deep front and rear gardens. The family-friendly house has been carefully and thoughtfully renovated, enhanced and extended by the current owners to include a delightful sky-lit, private, rear family room, and an impressive master suite in the former large loft. There’s also plenty of built-in storage and shelving. Much care and expense has been taken over the decor and finish of the property: we particularly like the solid wood floors, plush carpets and Farrow and Ball hues. Denmark Hill Station is a short walk (8 minutes) for Overground and main line services. Freehold.
In the windowed hall and a downstairs w.c. is both a welcome and practical addition, sitting neatly to the right of the stairs. To your right is a formal reception room with handsome period fireplace, and this room lies open to a second reception space that’s a natural dining room with a huge, clever bank of built-in cupboards to the right hand wall. This room in turn lies open to the smart fitted kitchen with bold units, and beyond these rooms is the lovely big, 17ft-wide garden room with folding doors (taking pretty much the entire rear wall) out to the large garden. The orientation of the plot has been brilliantly-exploited throughout the ground floor, while also providing opportunities for privacy within the zoned rooms. The part-walled rear garden faces south with a twist of east, and has recently been treated to professional landscaping incorporating large raised beds.
On the first floor, find two big double bedrooms, a cosy single (or home office) and the smart family bathroom with freestanding bath, herringbone parquet floor and vertical radiator. Both of the large doubles (15ft by 11ft and 12ft by 11ft respectively) have generous built-in wardrobes/cupboards. You’ll not want for storage in this property! It’s up the stairs again for the master suite with accessible eaves storage, and a modern en suite shower room with mosaic tiling.
Love Walk, within Camberwell Grove Conservation Area, is a special place to call home. This section of the street is pedestrian-only and is incredibly green and peaceful for its connected location. That move to the country will be long delayed. The exclusive and envied terrace the house sits within is almost hidden from view, being walled from the main pavement area.
Local large green spaces include Lettsom, Lucas and Warwick Gardens, and Ruskin, Burgess and Brockwell Parks. Your local primary school is Lyndhurst (Ofsted-rated 'Good', 3-11). Central Camberwell is mere strides away. We like Love Walk and The Pigeon Hole cafes particularly of a morning. Of an evening, check out The Hermits Cave, Good Neighbour, The Crooked Well and The Camberwell Arms, and Theo’s for awesome pizza, and live jazz at The Crypt is a must-do on Friday nights. Fresh loaves can be purchased from The Hill Bakery on nearby Grove Lane. Tennis courts are local at the foot of Grove Lane and Camberwell Grove (Butterfly Tennis Club) as well as Zen Yoga Studio. Camberwell leisure centre, on Artichoke place, is also close with newly-revamped Victorian pool and modern gym facilities. For more social, leisure, shopping and dining opportunities, you are a short distance/bus ride from Peckham, East Dulwich, Dulwich Village and Herne Hill.
