Splendid Early Victorian Three Bedroom Home With Pretty Garden.

This fantastic three bedroom period home retains much of its original charm. The property is end of terrace, notably wider than the average and spread generously over three floors. Built circa 1845, it was once home to world famous pantomime-pioneer Oscar Barrett. The gracious interior boasts original sash windows, ornate wooden wall panelling and those wonderful high ceilings associated with the era. A contemporary kitchen, bathroom, utility and shower room have been politely added and there's plenty of storage too. The current owners have worked from a tasteful pallet of Farrow and Ball and Little Green Paint shades to create a sympathetic home sympathetic to the era. A pretty rear garden and handy side access are the cherries on the cake. Stumbling upon Kenbury Street, in a prime pocket of SE5, you’ll be charmed by the neat row of early Victorian homes. It’s a short street, found just off Coldharbour Lane and within walking distance of numerous transport links including Loughborough Junction and Denmark Hill Stations.

High hedging and a pretty wooden gate reveal your exterior which has original stucco work, period style wall light and a rectangular window light over the door. The inner hall has notably high ceilings, a recessed arched architrave and archway leads you left to the spacious dining area which has contemporary low level storage units, shelving and French doors which lead rear to the garden. The front aspect reception, presented in Farrow and Ball's 'Calluna', has a most elegant original ceiling rose, cornicing and lovely wooden wall detail. The multi-pane sash window has it original shutter casing below.

Beyond the dining area you find a well stocked modern kitchen pretty in 'Middleton Pink'. Touchworthy cherry wood counters sit atop sleek white cabinets. The flooring is solid marble and there's a matching stone splashback. Appliances include a four ring gas hob, oven, integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer and NEFF microwave. A recessed pantry will host all your spices and chutneys. A laundry area sits to the rear next to a modern, fully tiled shower room, real slate flooring, heated towel rail and waterfall tap.

A carpeted hall leads upward from the hall to a well appointed first floor landing. The front-facing double bedroom has a wide original sash window, integrated shelving, original cornicing and Little Green Paint's ingeniously named 'Ashes of Roses'. In between the two bedroom is a fully tiled bath with more real slate flooring, a panneled bath, modern suite and drencher over the bath. Heated mirrors will aid your plucking and preening. The fabulous dual aspect master bedroom stretches six metres into a front facing dormer. Fitted and eaves storage make it easy to keep things spick and span.

Loughborough Junction is even nearer, with services to Blackfriars, City Thameslink, Luton & King's Cross. Brixton is an easy 15-20 min walk for tonnes of social endeavours and a zone 2 Victoria Line Station. Ruskin Park is a nice place for an amble or a game of tennis and, for a quiet read of the Sunday paper, go no further than the lovely Myatts Fields park, a ten minute stroll. There's a plethora of eateries nearby. The award winning 'Camberwell Arms' does a cracking roast and 'The Hermit's Cave' is the best spot for a pint of black.
