Landmark Grade II Listed Period Apartment in Exclusive Gated Development - CHAIN FREE.

Beltwood Park is a unique and visionary development situated in a conservation area within one of London's most desirable residential location. Originally built as a family residence in 1851, Beltwood House has enjoyed a fascinating past and numerous uses over the centuries. Retaining abundant original splendour, it has been lovingly and expertly recrafted, into six luxury apartments by a heritage-focused team of skilled craftspeople and artisans. This lavish two/three bedroom apartment is most certainly the jewel in its sparkling crown. Sitting on the ground floor of the original Neoclassical Victorian building, the property faces onto a private terrace through four magnificent floor-to-ceiling windows. It boasts notably high ceilings and a bright airy appointment throughout. Original features abound, including ornate ceiling carvings, fireplaces with hardwood mantels, Parquet flooring and sublime cornicing. Enjoying a gated entrance and an expansive, woodland setting - the development supplies an unmistakably peaceful living environment. Sydenham Hill and its surrounding areas offer the best of both worlds. Easy access into central London, combined with a village lifestyle surrounded by leafy parks, woods and green walking trails.

Fierce lions guard either side of the main entrance. The communal porch has pretty arched casement windows with lead detail, matching the magnificent arched fanlight over the original door. Solid hardwood Parquet flooring continues to a grand communal hallway with more stunning lead detail windows, original fireplace with ornate stucco detail and matching ceiling adornments. A grand staircase sits to the left of your contemporary yet sympathetic arched metal inner entrance. Opaque floor to ceiling glass allows light gush into the inner hall which boasts more Parquet flooring and some dishy vaulted ceilings.

The jaw-dropping kitchen/diner invites you through twin wooden doors. It's a vast and impressive affair boasting twin bow-shaped bays either side of wide French doors. All have signature arched fanlights and peer over your elegant private terrace. This sits raised over a further communal garden awash with mature shrubs, Romanesque statues and a large fountain. The kitchen enjoys a contemporary approach with double-width counter hosting the four ring induction hob and integrated extractor. There's tonnes of storage and food prep and a range of integrated appliances. An utterly splendid fireplace with grand wooden mantel rises to double height there's more intricate original ceiling detail to marvel at. Read More

The first double bedroom sits off the kitchen/diner with another bow-shaped bay that opens to the terrace. A carved fireplace, recessed storage point and adjoining ensuite complete the space. The main bathroom sits off the hall and boasts an eye-catching, period style chrome and copper bucket bath. Twin wash hand basin with wall hung taps, fitted storage and a swanky double walk-in shower add to the charm. Beyond the reception comes the main living area which continues the Downton Abbey vibes nicely. A further fireplace with carved hardwood surround and integrated period portrait sits on the right wall. The barrelled ceiling has tonnes of detail as you'd expect and there's a wide bay window with French doors opening to the terrace - such a wonderful spot for entertaining whatever the season. This could easily make a bountiful master bedroom. A door on the left wall leads you down a half flight to a huge dressing room/study with fitted storage and bright demeanour. The hall turns left to reveal a bright, dual aspect double bedroom next to which is a contemporary shower room.

The location is leafy, mature and peaceful, set back from Sydenham Hill which connects Sydenham with Crystal Palace. Sydenham Hill station is an easy walk away for Victoria bound trains, and there are also plenty of bus routes on your doorstep. Forest Hill station offers trains to London Bridge and the London Overground Line for connections to Canary Wharf (via Canada Water) in a mere 16 minutes. Islington and Shoreditch are also direct and easy. The Dulwich Wood House is just moments from the development and a popular local should you fancy a winter pint or summer Pimm’s. Head down to Sydenham for independent wine bars, craft beer, vintage shops and some fab gastropubs. Take a trip into Dulwich Village for its cosmopolitan collection of restaurants, bars and boutiques or over to Peckham Rye for rustic pubs, internationally recognised cuisine or some welcoming beer gardens.

You are also mere minutes from Dulwich Woods and Sydenham Wells Park for Sunday walks, as are Dulwich and Crystal Palace Parks. Crystal Palace, Forest Hill, Dulwich and Lordship Lane all are easily reached for abundant social endeavours. The Horniman Gardens is seriously close for a walk or a kick-about. The Dulwich schools are all easily reached for an easy morning commute and you're within easy reach of the Dulwich Picture Gallery, Dulwich Golf Club and the restored gothic revival All Saints Church which hosts regular services, choral music and popular concerts.
