Upland Road, East Dulwich
Fine Victorian four bed semi-detached house with off street parking, side access and a delightful south-east facing rear garden (plus covered terrace). The property’s almost 1700 square feet and covers three floors incorporating a generous master suite loft-conversion. The house is in good order throughout, with recently cleaned and repointed brickwork, plus extra insulation measures to all roof and some wall space, and has welcome features that include a neutral decorative scheme, a 25ft kitchen/diner and a HETAS approved multi-fuel stove in the front reception room, plus double-glazing throughout. Freehold.
To the front of the house you have a block-paving driveway with space for two cars. Open into the generous hall and the double-reception sits off to your left with bay window onto the attractive front drive. At the other end of the 27ft reception space are French doors opening onto the timber framed covered terrace that makes a great outdoor ‘room’ rain or shine. A pleasing decision and well-executed, too. On through to the huge and double/aspect kitchen diner with double doors at the rear and a further back door to your left. The kitchen’s a modern and fitted affair with plenty of cupboard and counter space. The dining area works well for casual or formal meals and enjoys deep garden views (the bird-friendly garden is well-stocked and cared for, with allotment areas too, and stretches some 50ft). To the side of the house you have glazed and enclosed side access that is good for garden and bike storage etc.
Up to the first floor for three double bedrooms and the main bathroom. The master bedroom is impressively-proportioned at 16ft by 13ft and offers leafy street views (it’s a nice wide road this with each house having a substantial front garden/parking area. Set adjacent is a second double and at the rear a third, complete with roof terrace (is there nothing this house doesn’t have?). The bathroom has contemporary white sanitary ware and smart travertine tiling. Ascend again for the master suite or dream guest pad with its own independent shower room. There’s plenty of height up here (often not achieved in your average loft conversion) and others would have squeezed two bedrooms up here. Skylights feature on the slope of the roof (open for brilliant London skyline views) and double doors in the dormer onto a Juliet balcony. Views are (as this area is well-liked for) green.
The house is great as-is but there is excellent potential to exploit the plot to its full potential by extending to the rear and side (relevant permissions obtained), as many of the neighbours have done. The location is a strong one; a quiet, residential street, with highly-regarded Goodrich Primary but a short walk away, as well as Lordship Lane, Peckham Rye Park and Common and Dulwich Park. Your closest stations are East Dulwich, West Dulwich, Peckham Rye, Honor Oak Park and Forest Hill.
