Spectacular Two Bedroom School House Conversion With OSP and Mezzanine Floor - CHAIN FREE.

New York can wait with this truly breathtaking penthouse apartment in the landmark Mary Datchelor School conversion. This spectacular two bedroom property is the largest in the development featuring landscaped communal gardens, secure underground parking and remotely monitored CCTV. The finish is top-notch throughout with Villeroy & Boch bathrooms, Italian kitchen, Siberian pine flooring, underfloor heating, integrated sound system and video entryphone. The apartment has some of the highest ceilings we've seen with two good-sized double bedrooms, a versatile mezzanine floor that can serve as a third bedroom or study and a huge living area that simply has to be seen to be believed.

Camberwell Grove (featured in the BBC series ‘The Secret History of our Streets’) boasts some of the finest architecture in south London with a plethora of magnificent Georgian townhouses. This historic tree-lined avenue has long been popular with actors, musicians and broadcasters, although nowadays there are as many lawyers as there are artists. At the southernmost end the imposing facade of this former Victorian girls school gives way to an elegant gated entrance and a communal hallway that recalls its former incarnation. Take the lift up to the second floor and into the magnificent apartment where you are immediately struck by the extraordinary proportions and attention to detail of this splendid, cutting-edge renovation. The hallway is as wide as it is wonderful with oak flooring underfoot, crisp white walls and plenty of space for seating. Immediately to the right is the master bedroom suite, a large split level space currently configured with the sleeping area upstairs and a spacious dressing room/study/sitting room below with built-in wardrobes, high ceilings and tall double-glazed windows looking out over a mature magnolia tree in the garden below. The en-suite bathroom has a double width walk-in shower, high quality contemporary fittings, ample cupboard space and floor-to-ceiling shelves.

Off the hallway is a corridor leading to the second bedroom with an abundance of natural light flooding in through huge dual aspect windows. Both bedrooms have South and West facing windows overlooking the peaceful communal gardens below. The hallway continues to a stylish guest bathroom and on into the spectacular, light-filled living room - formerly the geography classroom - that overlooks Camberwell Grove on one side and the gardens on the other. There is so much space in this room that you can afford to have large sofas, a dining area and that full-size grand piano you've been promising yourself. Original wood beams span the length and breadth of the room, framing a lantern roof that rises to a height of 18 feet with remote controlled windows to ensure a good flow of air in the summer months. The kitchen is a chef’s dream with a vast granite worktop, integrated Siemens appliances, drawers galore and masses of room to move around. Read More

Transport links are excellent. Denmark Hill railway station (Zone 2) is a brisk 7-minute walk from the property with fast trains to Victoria, Blackfriars and London Bridge, while the London Overground whisks you to Clapham Junction, Islington, Shoreditch, Canada Water and Canary Wharf. Alternatively, jump one of the numerous buses whizzing through Camberwell on their way to the City and the West End via Oval (Northern Line / Zone 2), Elephant & Castle (Northern and Bakerloo / Zone 1&2) or Waterloo (Jubilee, Northern and Bakerloo / Zone 1).

Lyndhurst Primary School and the famous Camberwell College of Arts are a short stroll away and the nearby Dulwich Foundation schools are easily accessible by bus or car. The area is also home to one of London’s best hospitals, Kings College, which is a 10-minute walk away. Camberwell enjoys an eclectic variety of independent food stores, a Morrisons supermarket and a number of excellent bars and restaurants including the Crooked Well on Grove Lane and the award-winning Camberwell Arms which does a cracking Sunday lunch. The renowned Hermit’s Cave is just one of the many great pubs in the area while the local church (St Giles) houses one of London’s best kept secrets in its crypt, a super cool no frills jazz club that attracts bands from far and wide. If you’re in the mood for culture the acclaimed South London Gallery is a 5-minute walk away while a little further down the road is the up-and-coming neighbourhood of Peckham with its burgeoning art, music and food scene. If keeping fit is your thing then you're spoilt for choice. The picturesque Ruskin Park is a short sprint away and there are two gyms, a 25 metre swimming pool, a yoga centre and a private tennis club right on your doorstep. Anyone for Pimms? Read Less
