Trossachs Road, East Dulwich
Classy architecturally-treated three bed, two bath bay-fronted Victorian Freehold house of 1707 square feet - incorporating an incredible rear extension. A well-established professionally landscaped garden (with generous decked, planted and paved areas) is the cherry on top.
The house also has Planning Permission for two further bedrooms (one single, one double) and a bathroom: https://planning.southwark.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?keyVal=QCFAO5KBGH700&activeTab=summary
Find the entertaining-friendly/family dream home on a quiet and leafy residential street with permit-parking, close to The Charter School East Dulwich on nearby Jarvis Road, plus independent secondaries Alleyn’s and JAGS, and to the local independent and state primary schools in Dulwich Village and East Dulwich, including Dulwich Village Infants' School and Dulwich Hamlet Junior School (Ofsted-rated 'Outstanding').
You are but a seven minute walk from East Dulwich Station (Fare Zone 2), and a shorter one from Lordship Lane with its pleasing offering of shops, bars and restaurants.
A smart walled front garden sets the house back from the street. Up the traditionally-tiled path and through the front door and you land in a windowed, wider than average hall. High ceilings and herringbone parquet floors impress from the off.
First on your left is a traditional bay-fronted formal reception room of over 17 feet by over 11 feet, with alcove storage and attractive central fireplace.
At the foot of the hall space you’ve got a door with a neat w.c. immediately to your right; this has a cute window, and a door that pops you down to the handy cellar space.
The rear section of the house has a marvellous and modern treatment with lots of glazing delivering gorgeous garden vistas - your kitchen area is set to your left, with plentiful ceiling-high cupboards and a central island. To your right you’ve got a natural dining space with folding doors spanning the far wall, onto the garden. A massive modern picture window dominates an additional reception space - an ideal spot for working or reading, or an equally perfect play area (which you can keep an eye on from the kitchen space). The whole area flows beautifully - you might not use the rest of the house!
Upstairs and the half-landing is home to an independent (windowed) utility room, and a large and luxury bathroom with free-standing bath and separate shower. Moroccan style floor tiles and a lovely big sash window bring on the smiles.
From the main landing you’ve got a generous wooden-floored double bedroom with built-in closets (traditional in style) to the near alcove, and large casement window to garden views. It’s over 16 feet by over 10.
The master bedroom is set to the front of the house. It’s over 14 feet by nearly 12, and has twin closets to each alcove, plus a cute feature fireplace, bespoke shutters to the large window, and an en suite shower room (very slick - with contemporary fittings, and more window shutters).
Up to the second floor and you’ll find a third bright double bedroom of over 15 feet by over 10 feet, with two large skylights plus sash window. There’s access top the large loft here, plus additional built-in cupboards to your left and right, just before your entry to the room.
A little bank of shops including a dry cleaner are close on East Dulwich Grove. Nearby Lordship Lane has so many independent places to recommend including Chener (books), Mons (cheese), Moxon’s (fish), William Rose (meat), SMBS (whole and fresh foods), Terroirs, The EDT and Franklin’s restaurant. We also like the many charity shops!
North Cross Road has a top Saturday market too and lovely little open-all-week boutique shops. East Dulwich Picturehouse is a popular fairly recent addition (those bookable sofa seats are a winner) to The Lane, as is M&S Food Hall. A large Sainsbury’s store is also local to you, on Dog Kennel Hill.
Dulwich Village is also a short and pleasant walk for Dulwich Picture Gallery, designed by Regency architect Sir John Soane and the oldest public art gallery in England (opened to the public in 1817), plus The Crown & Greyhound pub, Gail’s, Pizza Express and Rocco Di Papa.
Cool Peckham is close (walk through Goose Green) for restaurants such as Ganapati, Artusi and The Begging Bowl on Bellenden Road. Rye Lane is also strong for high street shopping, fruit and veg stalls, and summer rooftop bars. Trendy spots include Peckham Levels and The Bushey Building.
For more options, Herne Hill and Camberwell are easily reached.
Green spaces to enjoy locally include Dulwich Park, Goose Green, Peckham Rye Park & Common, and Camberwell's Ruskin Park.
