Elegant Split Level Georgian 3/4 Bedroom Home With Fantastic Roof Terrace - CHAIN FREE.

It's rare to find such Georgian elegance so seamlessly incorporating tasteful contemporary additions! This spectacular split level period three bedroom home, built circa 1820, possesses all the charm and character of our favourite architectural era. Floor to ceiling sash windows, wooden panelling, high ceilings and wrought iron window boxes will delight in equal measure, as will a perfectly sympathetic contemporary kitchen, bathroom and shower room. The accommodation sprawls over the upper two floors to include a huge open-plan living area with leafy dual aspect, three lovely bedrooms (one en suite), study, bathroom, shower room and utility room. The jewel in the crown is a sublime, lofty private roof terrace which presides over the surrounding period rooftops and lush trees. You can see as far as Canary Wharf! Located towards the top end of Grove Lane, this flat puts you in a great position for both the bars and eateries of Camberwell Church Street and East Dulwich. You are three minutes from a very large Sainsbury’s (next door to Dulwich Hamlet FC) and five minutes from some great food shops in Lordship Lane. Denmark Hill station is a mere three minutes away on foot for unbeatable connections to Victoria, Shoreditch, Farringdon, Blackfriars, Canada Water and beyond. East Dulwich is 10 minutes in the opposite direction for yet more connections.

The exterior stands tall and handsome enjoying the dappled shade from a beautiful London Plane. The front garden was recently gifted a facelift and there's well kept hedging and original railings. A communal raised ground floor entrance leads through to the flat's inner door. From here you walk up a charming original staircase with stripped wooden treads and risers to a landing, off which you meet the first of your dishy double bedrooms. The chimney breast is gently arched toward each corner and there's a splash of exposed brickwork too. French doors with original shutters lead rear to a raised juliette balcony.

Upward to the first floor you find more stripped boards and some rather fancy school house radiators which continue throughout. The living area spans a confident 360 sq ft with two glorious floor-to-ceiling, multi-pane double glazed sash windows peering past those signature decorative wrought iron window boxes. Both windows have their original wooden panelling. There's an elegantly understated contemporary fireplace with free standing grate and bespoke bookshelves. To the rear you find a handsome kitchen/diner with sympathetic wooden cabinets, wooden counters and a twin bowl ceramic butler sink. Another pretty sash window supplies more light and there's easily space to host 10 for dinner. A neat study completes this level with the third of those delightful front-facing sash windows. It could also make a fine nursery or single bedroom. Read More

The second return invites you through a handy utility room with counter space, wash hand basin and space for the washing machine and dryer. Sliding doors open from here to your picture-perfect decked terrace which will host the best summer gatherings. It's hard to believe you're so conveniently located with the sound of bird song and swaying trees. Upward to the second floor you find an upper landing with much the same simple tasteful styling - utterly respectful to the era. There's a large front-facing double bedroom with two double glazed sash windows, picture rails and oodles of space for storage. Next to this, sharing the front spot, is a bathroom with period roll top bath, wash hand basin, heated towel rail and period loo. The third double bedroom takes a rear aspect with neutral décor and beautifully stained timber floors. A tasteful shower room with contemporary fittings completes the tour.

There are a number of excellent schools nearby - a short walk down leafy Greendale to the highly rated independent James Allen's Girl's School and co-educational Alleyn's School. Dulwich College and Dulwich College Prep are a short drive/bicycle ride away. Also nearby is the well regarded Villa Pre-Prep School & Nursery. Camberwell College of Art is also within walking distance. Local eateries will keep you perpetually calorie counting - we love The Camberwell Arms, a winner of the Observer Food Monthly’s Best Sunday Lunch award, eight minutes down the Grove.

The very lovely Grove Lane Deli is proving a huge hit and we love Theo's pizzeria too. Celebrated boozers include the Hermit's Cave, The Crooked Well and The Grove Tavern. 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. There is a Sainsburys superstore an easy 5 minute walk away. The shops and foodie hotspots of Peckham and East Dulwich are also in walking distance. Keeping fit? Camberwell Baths is stunning and within an easy canter. Ruskin Park is a short walk away and you have the Butterfly Tennis Club is nearby too. The elegant Dulwich Park and Brockwell Park are also a short bicycle ride away. Read Less
