Divine Grade II Listed Five Bedroom Georgian Beauty With Roof Terrace on Best Street CHAIN FREE

All the charm of a Camberwell Grove Georgian gem and more! This flat fronted Grade II listed five bedroom beauty is just lovely. Spread over five elegant floors it combines perfectly traditional with contemporary. Sympathetic styling, original features and some excellently executed bespoke modern additions make for the perfect home - we're impressed. You'll enjoy wooden panelling, shutters, original doors and staircases and a dishy fireplace too. Two small courtyards, pretty garden and super top floor roof terrace with unbeatably leafy views allow for al fresco lounging. The tree lined avenue is widely celebrated as one of London's premiere period streets with a wonderful flow of Georgian right through to Edwardian. Denmark Hill station offers swift, regular services and Camberwell is a short stroll for any amount of social pursuits.

Railings lead inward off the street to find a period door with an arched fanlight. Your inner hall has wood panelling and a run of mirrors. The double reception enjoys fab vertical shutters on the front aspect sash and a beautiful floor to ceiling rear aspect window with panel shutters supplying lush garden views - a fine place to sit indeed. Fitted bookshelves will house all your classics and there's a period fireplace with polished stone mantel for more charm. The rear of the hall hosts a wc, two separate storage points and garden access. The garden itself is paved and private with plenty of mature greenery. Heading downward from the hall you find the kitchen spans the entire lower ground floor. Glass pane doors offer access to the lower courtyard which in turn brings you back to the garden. The kitchen cabinets are wonderfully rustic and topped with thick marble. A ceramic butler sink and matching drainer run on the rear wall and (as if you were suitably impressed yet) there's an Aga for your culinary creations. A recessed pantry will play host to all your spices. Read More

Snake back upward to meet with a tasteful bath on the first return. There's a beautiful period free standing bath and marble topped wash hand basin unit with circular sink. A rear sash affords a lush view. Your first floor hosts two interconnecting double bedrooms. The front number has more vertical shutters and ubiquitous fitted storage - a lavish dressing room perhaps? The rear bedroom has another gorgeous floor to ceiling sash with greenery and the steeple of St Giles' church peeking through. Your second return has another pleasant bathroom with modern suite. The third bedroom fronts the street with two sash windows affording dappled shade. A fourth handsome bedroom with fitted storage and more period views completes this level. There's a storage room with restricted head height on the top return. One final climb rewards you richly with a most special bedroom/living space that opens onto the tip top terrace from whence you can spy over Camberwell Grove below and as far as the Shard to the right.

The transport options are good; 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. 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 Green. 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 - anyone for Pimms? Read Less
