VIEWINGS FROM 23RD APRIL
With a spectacular full-width kitchen/extension, impressive landscape garden and tasteful décor throughout, this fantastic three bedder will make the perfect home. Planning permission has been granted for an impressive loft extension to increase the already generous proportion. Currently the accommodation comprises a double reception, huge, contemporary kitchen/diner, three lovely double bedrooms, bathroom, downstairs wc and handy storage cellar. There's a healthy sprinkling of original features including cornicing and fireplaces and some truly lovely tessellated tiling and cast iron school house radiators. The locale enjoys so much to boast about. You're within a stroll of Bellenden Village with its bars, eateries and community vibe. East Dulwich and Camberwell are each close by for any amount of plucky social endeavours. You're within the catchment for Belham, Lyndhurst and Dog Kennel Hill Primaries and also the new East Dulwich Charter School. Transport is a cinch with nearby Denmark Hill and East Dulwich Stations. Residents of Malfort Road can access the very wonderful Lettsom Gardens for endless leafy r&r.
Handsome gates open from the street to reveal that terrific tessellated tiled path. This leads past mature hedging to your recessed portico entrance where an original door with frosted panes encourages you forth. The inner hall is long and inviting with high ceilings, original cornicing and some lovely original stained floor boards. Step left to find a huge double reception with plantation shutters. Both ends enjoy ornate fireplaces with imposing mantels and some decorative cornicing.
An open arch leads from the rear of the space to that spectacular full-width kitchen/extension which boasts a wealth of daylight, limestone flooring and yummy handmade wooden cabinetry. If it looks familiar, you'll recognise it from an 'Ideal Home' feature! Three over head Velux and a wall of fancy tri-fold Schüco doors keep the space magically airy and underfloor heating will keep your toes cushy all year round. The huge Carrara marble central islands supplies a breakfast bar, double sink, integrated dishwasher, washing machine and bin storage. Further granite counter space sits opposite atop a flood of bespoke cabinets. There's a swanky five ring induction hob, integrated fridge/freezer, warming drawer, microwave and double oven. You'll find a cleverly concealed guest wc slotted neatly under the stairs. This is next to the access to your super-handy storage cellar. Outside you'll bask in a bright, ingeniously arranged split level garden which has two separate patio areas and some mature olive trees, box bell shrubs and planted borders. Sandstone paving stones and steps finish the space perfectly.
The first return is light and lovely with an eye catching feature wall. The first of your delightful bedrooms, a neat carpeted double, faces rear over the garden. Next to this sits the bathroom which is tiled to dado level and boasts a contemporary suite and a drencher fitting over the bath. The wash hand basin has ample storage underneath for your lotions and potions. The first floor hosts a most handsome front facing master bedroom which steals the full width of the building. A wide shutter-clad bay window and additional sash window afford tonnes of light. The original feature fireplace is flanked on either side by floor to ceiling wardrobes and there's another tasty feature wall. Bedroom three has another lovely feature fireplace with mantel, original cornicing and a peaceful rear view.

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).
