Astounding Five Bedroom Victorian Home With Roof Terrace, City Views and Stunning Loft Extension.

Boasting an exquisite architect-designed loft extension, this uniquely impressive five bedroom family home offers spacious, bright and sympathetically augmented accommodation throughout. The top floor master suite is of an exceptional standard, with en-suite wet room, dressing area, study space and that jaw-dropping roof terrace with panoramic views over London. It's a truly unique and inspiring city oasis. You'll enjoy some lovely original features throughout (that cornicing!) and there's a handy, tiled storage cellar for vino et al. The well presented rear garden offers yet more R&R opportunities. This area boasts much to be excited about. The nearby Camberwell College of Arts attracts a wonderful creative vibe to the locale. You're within a pleasant stroll of beautiful Bellenden Village and the plucky attractions of Peckham are also nearby. Camberwell and its fab list of culinary and social spots is within easy staggering distance. Transport is another high point, with Peckham Rye supplying numerous swift, frequent services to London Bridge, Elephant and Castle, Clapham and Canada Water for the Jubilee Line.

The house enjoys an end of terrace corner spot which means that you get sun throughout the day in the west-facing garden and the top notch roof terrace. Shenley Road is mature, leafy and perfectly placed. Pristine black cast iron railings invite you down a beautiful tessellated pathway past recently planted hedging. Ornate cornice work fringes the sides and top of the recessed portico and can also be spotted on both storeys of the canted bay window. Inside you'll find more decorative cornicing, high ceilings and some dishy, refurbished wooden flooring. This continues into the front reception room which enjoys a wide bay of double glazed sash windows. Plantation shutters on both upper and lower panes afford privacy and there's a lovely wood burning fireplace with contemporary mantel.

The wonderfully decorative cornicing continues through to the rear section of the reception which has been opened up to create a large family room space. From here, bespoke wooden framed glass doors open to a spectacular kitchen/diner extension which spans the full width of the building to the rear with Italian tiling running from the kitchen into the garden.

Two extra long skylights invite the sun inward, filling the space with natural light. The central island is Corian topped as is the counter space on the left wall. Appliances include a Siemens induction hob, Siemens/Bosch ovens, a Siemens dishwasher and a bespoke larder. A handy WC tucks neatly on the side wall and newly installed Schüco bi-fold glass doors open full-width to the garden. We can't imagine a more lovely spot to cook, dine and enjoy company. The garden is in wonderful condition and has built-in lighting to create a real ambiance in the evening.

Your first floor delivers a lovely front facing double bedroom which runs to full width. Twin wardrobes flank a pretty period feature fireplace and the bay window has modern shutters. A second double comes next with a pleasant streetscape, shutters, storage and a feature fireplace. A third double bedroom sits on the upper return next to a modern, fully renovated bathroom.

The rear of landing leads to a fourth bright double bedroom with shutters and a pleasant garden view. A seamless recessed storage point offers space and plumbing for the washing machine and tumble dryer. Wide steps lead upward from the upper landing to that glorious copper clad loft extension which soaks in sun all day.

The loft bedroom fronts the street with en suite wet room and walk-in dressing area with oodles of shelving and hanging space. The study area enjoys more bespoke storage and a thick cut oak integrated desk. From here, bespoke electric glass doors open, with the click of a button, to the main event! This decked terrace is genuinely one of the most impressive spaces we've had the pleasure to visit. With uninterrupted, lofty views stretching as far as the Gherkin, Shard and Canary Wharf it's 'roll on bonfire night'! The bespoke glass doors will even close automatically if it rains!

South London Gallery and Camberwell College of Arts, plus the quirky Bellenden Road shops, are at your fingertips, and you only need to walk to the end of the road to visit the hugely popular Toad Bakery, for your morning coffee. You have all sorts of buses within a 5min walk which travel into and across London with night services too. A 10 minute walk has you at either Denmark Hill or Peckham Rye mainline stations (both Zone 2) with services to Victoria, Blackfriars, Farringdon and beyond, (to St Albans and even Stanstead!), or east to London Bridge and Cannon Street. 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 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.
