Splendid Six Bed/Three Reception Grade II Listed Georgian Home.

Close to the tennis courts on Camberwell Grove and facing the spire of St Giles church, this beautiful and substantial home sits at the bottom of Grove Lane, near Camberwell Church Street. One of the most attractive features of these late 18th century houses is their super long front gardens - when the sun comes out it's hard to imagine a finer looking townhouse. The rear garden is small and enclosed. There are eight principal rooms inside, plus kitchens and bathrooms, and the lower ground floor could be used a one bedroom apartment. The house comes with plenty of period character including marble fire surrounds, box and "pull up" shutters on the windows and two marvellous dry vaulted cellars.

Enter at ground floor level. Moody wall shades and a fabulous original arched fanlight make a lasting first impression. Original cornicing and a further arched architrave encourages you further down the hall. A stripped period door leads right to your open plan kitchen/diner where two front aspect sash windows frame a leafy vista - perfect to wow your dinner guests. An original period feature fireplace continues the charm offensive. To the rear sits the kitchen which also enjoys dining space and a peaceful leafy view. Bespoke 'Binova' Italian kitchen cabinets run along the left hand side with a stainless steel topping. The oblong four ring gas hob is nice touch. Back in the hall you descend a half flight for the bathroom which is semi tiled and has a white suite. A rear door leads to your bijou, split level, paved patio garden. It's neat but well stocked with mature flora.

The lower ground floor hosts a double bedroom with storage and garden access. Facing front you meet with a further reception/bedroom which in turn leads to an outside paved area. Twin vaults, one with plumbing for the washing machine, will hide away any amount of whatnot. The fabulous first floor finds you agog in a most splendid front facing reception that spans the width of the building. Three jaw dropping floor to ceiling sash windows, each with shutters, peer over the mature and bountiful front garden - it's a pure delight. A wide original fireplace and marble mantel impress. Double doors connect to a rear facing study/double bedroom which boasts a period feature fireplace and bespoke storage. The second floor landing is kept light and lovely by a rear facing sash and period skylight. Two further bedrooms face front, one double and one small single. A final nicely proportioned double bedroom takes the rear spot. Read More

A beautiful house in a top location for central Camberwell - all life's necessities are within walking distance, as is Denmark Hill train station (zone 2) for excellent links to Victoria, London Bridge and Blackfriars. The London Overground Line will whisk you to Clapham Junction, Canada Water and Hoxton. There are also numerous bus services to the City and West End. Kings College Hospital and the Maudsley are just four minutes on foot if that is where you work and the Dulwich Foundation Schools are all within a short drive time. If you've decided to cook you can pop round the corner into Daneville Road where you'll find a large Morrisons or you could drive five minutes to the Sainsbury's super store on Dog Kennel Hill. The gastropubs, delis and other great shops in Lordship Lane are lovely whatever day and there are plenty of interesting eateries just two minutes from your door in Camberwell. Read Less
