Impressively Recrafted Four Bedroom Home With Granny Flat and OSP - CHAIN FREE.
Boasting an impressive architectural remodelling, this incredible 1960s Camberwell Grove property, supplies bright, spacious and versatile accommodation. The finish is bespoke and elegant throughout - you'll spy sleek oak doors, white wash wooden flooring, brushed steel fixtures and top notch Scandinavian double glazed windows. Laid over four generous floors, the property has been designed with maximum flexibility in mind. The flexible layout allows, amongst other things, for a massive four/five bedroom home or indeed four beds with a separate self-contained studio flat with it’s own private entrance (potential additional income perhaps?). Allocated off street parking adds to the charm.
These 60's homes are becoming incredibly sought after in recent years, not least for their wide windows and impressive proportions. A triple height side stairwell addition means your main rooms enjoy full width. It's a house for entertaining we think! You'll also be interested to know, Terry Jones of Monty Python fame was the first owner of this house, who then sold it to Albert Finney! Location wise you're equally as spoilt; Camberwell Grove is truly delightful. Those that have walked its gently sloping, tree lined paths understand its uniqueness. Indeed it enjoyed a full hour of coverage on BBC2's enchanting documentary series 'The secret history of our streets'. From here you can walk to Camberwell's ever growing list of social attractions in around 5 minutes. Denmark Hill and its wildly popular zone two station is about the same time in the other direction. The very lovely Lettsom Gardens is a few minute's ramble for more outdoor fun.
The house sits confidently at the end of a terrace half way up the eastern side of Camberwell Grove. There is plenty of mature greenery and surrounding period charm with an inimitable mix of Georgian, Regency, Victorian, Edwardian and 20th century architecture. Entering off the street through your nicely arranged patio garden you meet a neat inner porch and front facing reception / bedroom. This leads back onto the patio through a full height wall of glass doors and windows making for an airy and inviting environment. A central block of bespoke storage units straddles both the hall and this front room which are separated by a sleek sliding door. A beautifully finished shower room with contemporary suite and walk-in shower comes next. The rear facing utility room, has recessed storage and a peaceful rear aspect. A further rear entrance can be used for the upper floors if required.
A trip to the first floor reveals a most impressive living space. Stretching the full depth of the house it spans over 350 sq ft and enjoys a further block of fitted storage units. These, as with the units on the ground floor, have beautiful oak veneer doors with recessed circular handles. A super slick kitchen with fancy Quartz counters runs the full width of the room. Appliances include an integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer, Bosch fan oven and a fab four induction hob. Your stairwells are wonderfully bright with large windows and more neutral decor. Upward again you find a wide second floor landing. A glass balustrade and low level spot lighting set the second floor stairs apart! A large double bedroom fronts the Grove with oodles of windows spying over mature leafiness. A further double bedroom with recessed storage faces rear with a pleasant mature view. A second handsome tiled shower room completes this floor. The final upward ascent delivers either two tip top bedrooms, or the opportunity to configure the rear room as a stunning bathroom with tree top views - the choice is yours.
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, London Blackfriars and Kings Cross. The London Overground Line vastly increases your connectivity with HIghbury & Islington, Shoreditch, Clapham Junction and Canary Wharf (via Canada Water) are all easy as pie! The very excellent Lyndhurst Primary is but a moment's stroll as are a plethora of eateries including Angels and Gypsies, Theo's pizzeria (of Pizza East fame), The Camberwell Arms and the wonderful Greek Taverna that has entertained rich and famous Camberwell residents for over 40 years. The Hermit's Cave is great for a pint and FM Mangal serves up the best kebab in London. 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 newly renovated Camberwell Baths is stunning and within 60 seconds from your door as well as the fantastic Zen yoga on Camberwell Grove itself. Ruskin Park is a short hop and you have the Butterfly Tennis Club on your doorstep - anyone for Pimms?
Lettsom Gardens is a beautiful community garden bordered by Grove Park to the north and Grove Hill Road to the south. It is a popular and private amenity for the communities in both those streets and also more widely amongst Camberwell residents. The residents association host summer barbeques and bonfires there, providing special occasions for adults and children to meet new neighbours. The space is divided between woodland, allotments and a tarmac sports field. You'll be interested to know, Terry Jones lived on the opposite side of Lettsom Gardens for many years. He and the other members of Monty Python developed the scripts for the original series as they played five-a-side football there!
Loved by squirrels, locals on lunch and dog walkers, St Giles Churchyard lies behind the Anglican church between Wilson Road and Camberwell Grove.
Sitting right next to a busy junction, Camberwell Green is a small park that is often overlooked. Until the late 18th century, Camberwell was a rural village. The green used to play host to a rather notorious fair held for the Feast of St Giles. This became an increasingly boisterous affair lasting up to three days, until eventually, in 1856, the more 'well to do' residents put an end to it.
Lying between St Giles and Benhill Roads, it was laid out in the mid-Victorian era and is overlooked by some of the loveliest houses from the period in Camberwell. Popular with locals and staff from Southwark Town Hall, the facilities include free tennis courts and a children's play area.
Myatt's Fields Park, on the border of Southwark and Lambeth, is named after a market gardener called Myatt, reputedly famous for his strawberries. Today it features tennis courts, a bandstand and ball games area, and a new playground sporting a wet play zone (dog-free of course).
