Sutherland Square, Walworth
Well over 2000 square feet of elegant Victorian townhouse, on the headline act of Sutherland Square Conservation Area. It's a tucked-away yet well-connected location between Kennington and Elephant & Castle tube stations - walk to either in under 10 minutes.
The handsome and characterful home boasts five floors, four bedrooms, three receptions, two bathrooms and a shower room. You also have a generous ‘city’ garden which faces east, complete with garden studio (with power).
The current owner has sensitively refurbished to a high standard during her occupancy, paying particular attention to ample and accessible storage. Welcome features are found throughout and these include original fireplaces, sash windows and beautiful original shutter and box work, sash windows, ceiling roses and ornate cornice work.
Original railings and gate grace the front of the house. In the front door and open into a high-ceilinged hall. Formal reception rooms with stripped original floor boards (and dividing/connecting doors) rest to your right - the front room is over 12 feet each way, the second is over 12 feet by over 11 feet. On the way down to the lower ground floor you’ve got your first bathroom - with sash window and modern white suite.
To the front of the house on the lower ground floor, find the charming twin-windowed kitchen with white units, wooden counters, a large ceramic Butler sink, and loads of wooden open shelving to one wall. Double doors open to a third reception room/garden room - opening onto the lower area of the two-tier low-maintenance garden.
On the first floor you’ve got a huge master bedroom across the front - of over 17 feet by over 12 feet. The adjacent is a generous double of over 12 feet by over 11 feet, with an alcove closet.
The second floor delivers another huge front bedroom (over 17 feet by over 12 feet), and a small double (over 8 feet each way). Plus a second bathroom and independent (windowed) w.c. A generous built-in cupboard on the landing (ideal for linen and the like) completes the floor.
There’s more! Take a door from the landing to the corner servants’ quarters: now used as an attic room with two large storage areas.
Elephant & Castle is Zone 1 and you’re easily walkable to central London. Or jump on one of many buses which run up and down Walworth Road.
Elephant & Castle, Borough, Kennington, Oval and Camberwell are all close for places to eat and drink. Really locally we like Louie Louie and Orbit brewery and taproom. For a bit of culture, you're close to Blue Elephant and White Bear theatres, The Cinema Museum and The Imperial War Museum.
Local parks include Burgess, Kennington (where you’ll find Collective cafe for delicious pizzas!), Pasley and Pelier.
Local Farmers’ Markets can be found at Myatt’s Fields Park, Oval (St Marks Church) and Camberwell Green.
