Show Stopping Three Bed Victorian Home With Beautiful Finish

Situated in the much sought after and extremely quiet pocket of the very lovely Ruskin Park. This picture perfect three bed charmer will knock your socks off with its original Victorian features and its period credentials that are lovingly respected at every step and coupled with a multiple choice of close proximity transport links and the convenience of Dulwich Village, Herne Hill and Brixton. The accommodation comprises a beautiful double reception, large kitchen/diner, three pretty bedrooms and a rather tasty bathroom. We're in love with that fantastic herringbone Parquet flooring! Subject to planning you could easily convert the loft to have another double bedroom with en suite. The location offers yet more to love. There's a real sense of community in this immediate area and you're within an easy walk of both Camberwell and Brixton for some of London's best eateries. Transport wise you're within an 8 minute walk of Denmark Hill Station for services to Victoria and the London Overground Line. Loughborough Junction Station is even closer for yet more swift central services.

The house is set back from its right hand neighbour affording a welcome sense of seclusion. Your front garden, walled and with dainty black gate, leads you inward past high privet hedging and a charming pebble bed garden centred around a mature Magnolia tree - so far, so very quaint! The original door dons a handsome lion knocker and opens to your hall where complimentary shades are separated at dado level. Original cornice work continues along the curved wall to the reception. Both ends of this elegant space enjoy more original cornice work. Picture rails in the front section separate beautifully matched Farrow and Ball shades. The period fireplace and mantel supply a warming centre point and there is some built-in shelving for displaying the holiday artefacts. The gorgeous oak Parquet has been aged by a process called 'Tumbling' which gives a wonderfully authentic texture. You'll find two separate understairs storage points preceding your kitchen/diner which runs over 5 metres from the end of the hall. Here you'll note wonderful Brazilian slate flooring, fitted shelving and track lighting. A side bay window with integrated seat supplies the perfect spot for the dining table. Your cabinets are simple and fitting with pretty glass handles and solid looking marble worktops. A deep ceramic butler sink sits next to the double glass doors. Many neighbouring houses have extended the kitchen into the full width at the rear - it's an exciting prospect to consider! The garden has been excavated to create a lovely York stone patio. Railway sleepers border a raised lawn lined with mature plants and shrubs. It's a wonderful spot for summer.Read More

The first floor landing greets you with a beautiful 'Josef Frank' floral accent wall - colourful and inviting. The landing has fitted storage and attic access. Your master bedroom fronts the street through two lovely sash windows. Wood panelling up to picture rail level is painted to match your twin wooden fitted wardrobes. There's a low level school house radiator under each window and integrated dimmer switches behind the bed. Your second double bedroom comes next along the landing with Farrow and Ball's 'Setting Plaster' wall shades and lime washed timber flooring. The alcove houses an integrated desk and some raised box shelving. Your beautiful bathroom features some show stopping Parisian handmade Vintage style floor tiles with underfloor heating. There's a period style heated towel rail, roll top bath with drencher, stand alone wash hand basin and fab vintage loo. Your third and final carpeted double bedroom promises a side aspect nautical window and some lovely neutral wall shades.

One of the area’s best and friendliest local pubs, the Cambria, is just around the corner or the convenient Dulwich Village, Camberwell, Herne Hill and Brixton Village are all within easy reach for more great bars and restaurants. Brixton underground is a brisk 15 minute walk and Loughborough Junction overground is an easy 5 minute walk, with a direct line to Blackfriars (7 mins) and Kings Cross St Pancras (15 mins). If you’d rather be walking the dog, playing a game of tennis or simply hugging a tree, Ruskin Park is a mere 3 minute walk away, while a short drive will have you at the ever-popular Brockwell Park and its Lido. If kiddies are in the picture, Herne Hill nurseries are close by, as is the well-regarded St. Saviour's school. Read Less
