Unique Period Home over Four Floors with Double Height Conservatory

A late 18th-century artisan’s house, this very charming terrace has three bedrooms, a serene bathroom, spacious reception areas and a pretty rear garden. It sits towards the bottom of sought-after Camberwell Grove, near Camberwell Church Street and St Giles Church (whose spire you can see from the rear windows). At the rear, a beautiful conservatory has been added to the lower ground level with a glazed roof stretching right up to the floor above. The views out to the terraced garden beyond are idyllic. Previous owners include Peter O’Toole and Sir Ian McKellen!

Step through the front door into an original wood panelled hallway. On your right is an inviting double reception with stripped timber floors and neutral décor. There’s an original fireplace, a marble hearth, period floorboards and panelling, refurbished industrial radiators, and sash windows looking on to the street. Toward the rear, where the sash used to be, is a dramatic opening with a perfect view of the double-height conservatory below and the garden beyond. Natural light streams through by the bucketload. Back into the hall and down a few steps is the walkway to the conservatory itself, accessed down a flight of steps, which leads to the kitchen which sports a solid mahogany floor extending through into the dining room (the flooring was salvaged from a Blackpool ballroom!). The dining room has direct access to the street, patio and outside storage cupboard. Via the conservatory you can access to the 22-foot garden, partly walled, with staggered decking and plenty of space for summer dining. It is full of beautiful plants to each side, which drape over the central, decked area — not to mention the glorious cherry blossom tree which comes to life under the spire of St Giles in spring — making the most picturesque scene.

Begin your ascent up to the first floor to find a big double bedroom stretching across the front of the house with twin sash windows and lovely views. Just behind is a large family bathroom with roll-top tub and a charming white suite. On the second floor are two more bedrooms, both are good sized rooms and the rear bedroom is used as a nursery.

The transport options are excellent; Denmark Hill station (Zone 2) for fast, regular services to Victoria, Blackfriars and London Bridge is a 7-minute walk. The highly considered London Overground line has completed its outer orbital route around London and also serves Denmark Hill. Clapham High Street, Clapham Junction, Islington, Shoreditch and Canary Wharf (via Canada Water) are now all easy as pie to reach. There are also a multitude of buses running close by on Camberwell Church Street into the City and the West End. The very excellent Lyndhurst Primary is but a moment's stroll, as are a plethora of eateries, including The Camberwell Arms, a winner of the Observer Food Monthly’s Best Sunday Lunch award, two minutes from the front door. Camberwell Art School and the Dulwich Foundation schools are all a short drive or bus ride away and there are plenty of shops nearby including a host of independent food shops on Camberwell Church Street and Camberwell Green, plus a new, modern library and playground. The shops and foodie hotspots of Peckham and East Dulwich are also in walking distance. Keeping fit? The newly renovated Camberwell Baths is stunning and within 60 seconds from your door. Ruskin Park is a short hop and you have the Butterfly Tennis Club on your doorstep. Read Less
