Beautiful Five Bedroom Period Home in Best Spot - CHAIN FREE.
This amazing five bedroom home marries the best of period elegance with modern ingenuity to supply the perfect south London family home. Generously spread over spacious, vast floors, the interior features top notch furnishings, tasteful styling and a sprinkling of original features. You'll enjoy 11 beautifully proportioned rooms. The landscaped front and rear gardens are each super smart, low maintenance spaces and there's a heated head height cellar in which to hide the golf clubs. The loft will house any number of hobbies and all your bedrooms are proper doubles. Whilst the house is ready to move into, it has untold potential for development, namely the side-return, loft space, basement and even a roof garden - as has been done in other houses on the road. Champion Grove is a most special-tree lined horseshoe shaped haven of similarly impressive Georgian and Victorian properties. Its convivial residents are a mix of people in the media, the arts, the law, medicine, technology and commerce. Perfectly placed for the best of both East Dulwich and Camberwell, you're also treated to the delights of nearby Ruskin Park. Dog Kennel Primary, with good OFSTED rating, is a three minute walk and Denmark Hill station is just five.
A double storey canted bay with simple cornicing, classic portico and London stock brick work invites you in off the quiet residential Grove. The front garden is fringed with mature hedging and enjoys a low maintenance yet high-end raised paved patio which too is fringed with flora. Entering through the noticeably high portico you'll meet with an original period door and eye catching period tiling up to dado level and on the door step. The inner hall boasts three metre high ceilings and original cornicing. Stylish painted floorboards continue to the left where you'll meet a super-sized double reception. Enjoying a wide bay to the front and French doors to the rear, the space is afforded natural separation with a wide central arch. Matching funked-up feature mantels, integrated lighting, coving and cast iron school style radiators reinforce the tasteful blend of old and new.
The head height cellar is accessed at the end of the hall under the stairs and offers any amount of uses from a gym to moody teenage den. From the end of the hall you'll be grabbed by the kitchen/diner which treats you to a flood of natural light. A wall of glass doors to the rear open fully out to the garden offering the perfect BBQ venue. A side bay of pretty frosted sash windows supplies more welcome cooking light and the ridged wooden cabinets are crowned with thick cut oak counters. A huge island houses a four ring gas hob and enough storage to house every pot and pan. The right hand wall hosts a double oven and stainless steel sink. The garden itself is really something special; two gently raised paved levels play host to four separate matching planters and there's built in mood lighting for your late night summer gatherings. The rear offers a real sun trap - the perfect spot for sun-baking.
Back inside on the first floor you'll find a long carpeted landing. The main bedroom fronts the Grove nudging into the super wide bay with enough space for a full size pool table! Rich terracotta walls with contrasting white on the frieze make for a decadent vibe and there's a wooden feature surround in place of the fire. The second generous double bedroom sits to the rear with fitted storage, dark painted floorboards and an original feature fireplace and mantel. To the rear of the landing you'll discover the wc and shower room have been kept separate (squabble free). The shower room has twin wash hand basins and a shower with drencher fitting.
The third bedroom sits rear leaning into another beautiful bay window. A further ascent reveals another long landing. The fourth bedroom, again, spans the full width of the house. Blue and white walls and quality carpeting keep things warm and trendy. The fifth and final bedroom sits to the rear with another original feature fireplace and some well-chosen paint shades. There's a handy laundry room resting on the second return. Here you'll benefit from recessed storage, sink and drainer and space and plumbing for the washing machine. A big and bold bathroom with roll top bath, walk in shower and loo offers a fine space for the morning ablutions. The loft room is accessed via retractable stairs on the landing. It's got electricity and flooring - yoga room?

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).
