Urlwin Street, Camberwell
Characterful three bed Georgian Camberwell pad of 928 square feet, over upper floors, on a charming Grosvenor Park conservation area street which is really close to Burgess Park and Kennington Park, and to Kennington and Oval tube stations (walk under 15 minutes to either).
Welcome features include sash windows, stripped floors, and white walls. Leasehold.
You’ve a shared hall (there’s just one flat below yours). Open your own front door and take the stairs up. You’ll first find the property’s bathroom on half-landing level - it’s simple in style, with a white suite and a pretty casement window to surprisingly leafy views.
Up to the main landing and you take a right into the eat-in kitchen which has painted wooden doors to divide you from or connect you to the large formal reception that’s over 13 feet by nearly 16. Here, bespoke shutters feature to the large windows, and you have exposed brick and bare plaster detailing, as well as a traditional stove in the fireplace. It’s a lovely and calm space.
Heading upstairs you have great light as the stairwell is lit by a south-east facing window. The largest of the bedrooms is at the rear of the building. It’s 13 feet by over 9. Two further bedrooms (both good sizes) sit at the front, with sash windows and street views. On this floor you’ve also got large built-in storage cupboards on the landing.
Louie Louie on Walworth Road - a 7 minute walk - has excellent grub and rotating chefs, plus cocktails and weekend DJs. Kennington Park’s got a fairly new and rather lovely organic sourdough pizza place: Collective. Fowlds Cafe (and general store) is a gorgeous spot for coffee and cakes and home-cooking on gorgeously-Georgian Addington Square.
Central Camberwell’s good for good food as well: we like The Camberwell Arms, Nandine, Silk Road and Theo’s particularly, or go in the other direction for great Chinese at Dragon Castle in Elephant & Castle. Camberwell Road’s got handy general high street shopping including a Marks & Spencer store.
Burgess and Kennington Parks are impressive and both have tennis courts. Oval Farmers’ Market is on Saturdays on Georgian church grounds (St Mark’s Church, by Oval tube), with produce & craft stalls & a café.
You can be in central London very quickly hopping on one of the many buses on Camberwell Road. Or head south for more options in Peckham, Herne Hill, Dulwich and Brixton.
