Elegant Double Fronted Georgian Four Bedroom Home With OSP - CHAIN FREE

Delightful from tip to toe! With a commanding spot on south east London's premier period row, this four bedroom double fronted Georgian dream, circa 1820, boasts the perfect mix of original charm and sympathetic modern convenience. The property is spread over two and a half floors to comprise two reception rooms; a large kitchen/diner, three double bedrooms, single bedroom/study, bathroom, shower room and fantastic utility space. Original features include fireplaces, arched sash windows with stained glass, shutters, cornicing and some lovely stripped timber flooring. The rear garden sings in spring and summer with a fragrant array of roses, shrubs and mature leafiness. A handy off street parking bay will impress and you're within a moment's tree lined ramble of the best of Camberwell - bars, eateries and bountiful London bustle. Nearby green spaces include the charming Brunswick Park with its tennis courts, gallery and cafe. Even closer is St Giles Church grounds - it's a lovely spot for a read of the paper. Transport links are equally impressive with Denmark Hill an easy 12 minute stroll. It boasts unbeatable connections to Victoria, Blackfriars, Elephant & Castle and the London Overground Line will whizz you to Shoreditch and also Canada Water for the Jubilee Line.

Regal black railings and a matching gate invite you off the Grove to find symmetrical gravel beds to left and right. Wide steps lead up to your original door (with original black knocker set). The ornate arched fanlight bears the house's number. Your inner hall is tasteful and elegant with neutral decor and those beautifully finished wooden floors. To your right sits a dual aspect reception with high ceilings, original cornicing and a most charming arched sash window with yellow stained glass trim. This frames a leafy streetscape, while the rear window peers over your rear garden. The original fireplace is flanked on either side with shelving and low level storage units. On the far side of the hall you meet a dishy dining room with much the same attractions as its opposite neighbour.

Down three steps from the rear of the hall you find patio access next to a further lounging/dining area. A contemporary coal effect gas fire will keep things toasty in the colder months. From here, a wide arch leads to your nicely sized kitchen which has solid oak counters running on three sides. There's plenty of cabinet space, a four ring gas hob and oven. Further garden access leads to a pretty paved patio and seating space with access to the off-street bay. Your healthy lawn is surrounded by a wealth of flora and shrubs and there's another sunny spot for R&R. A neatly tucked garden shed will house the Flymo et al. Read More

Back inside, head downward from the rear return to find the sizeable utility room which has space and plumbing for the washing machine. A further storage space will house any amount of vino. Heading upward from the main hall, via an original staircase with curling hard wood banister, reveals a bright spacious bathroom. Features include an original fireplace, wood panelled bath, storage and more tasteful timber floors. A further shower room with loo completes this level. Upward again you find your dual aspect master bedroom with both garden and Grove views. A further front aspect double bedroom sits the far side of the landing with another imposing original feature fireplace. Your single bedroom/study sits in-between stealing yet more leafy street views. Your fourth and final bedroom, a bright and beautiful side aspect double, sits up a final half flight, enjoying a wall of fitted storage.

The transport options are good, with a multitude of buses running close by on Camberwell Church Street into the City and the West End. Denmark Hill station (zone 2) for fast, regular services to Victoria, Blackfriars and Farringdon is a 12 minute walk in the other direction. The London Overground Line will wish you to Shoreditch in no time. You can also be on the Jubilee Line from Canada Water in around 10 minutes. The very excellent Lyndhurst Primary is but a moment's stroll as are a plethora of eateries including Caravaggios and the much loved FM Mangal. Quality gastro pubs abound. We love The Crooked Well and the award winning Camberwell Arms. 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 in Camberwell Green. Keeping fit? The wonderful period 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
