Elegant Five Bed Late Victorian Gem With OSP, Original Features and Balcony.

Nestled along a peaceful, tree lined and much loved period street, this stunning Late Victorian five bedder takes some beating. The interior is awash with period charm and modern ingenuity. Any contemporary additions have been executed with sympathy to the house's proud period heritage. The accommodation sprawls generously over four floors to comprise a stunning double reception, conservatory, large kitchen/diner, five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a large head height cellar with storage, and plumbing for laundry. The halls and landings are spacious and lofty with wonderful high ceilings and perfectly chosen decor - all in all a delight throughout. The location is easily as impressive, and residents can apply for access to nearby Lettsom Gardens and allotments.

Tranquil, leafy and friendly yet close to so much bustle! Bellenden Village is a short stroll for plenty of boho social attractions. Warwick Gardens is a lovely spot for a picnic. Peckham's seemingly endless list of pubs and eateries is also walkable. Camberwell supplies yet more fun and frolics and East Dulwich hosts cosmopolitan Lordship Lane. Transport is a cinch with Denmark Hill and Peckham Rye stations each reachable on foot in around 10 minutes.

The rather dishy exterior sits behind your handsome front garden - landscaped by Kate Eyre and with original tiled path. There is off street parking for the SUV and concealed bin storage too. A side access point makes for easy movement of bikes and dogs. Your recessed portico frames a gorgeous original door with stained glass and original bell. The inner hall has dado rails, thoughtful wall shades, stripped timber floors and doors to match. Skip right to the double reception to find a working fireplace and oodles of space for lazy lounging and formal dining. French doors lead to the conservatory with original tiles and a door to the garden. Back in the hall you access your sizeable cellar which has plumbing for the washing machine and plenty of space besides. The floor has been retiled and the walls damp-proofed and replastered. Fitted cupboards house your meters and there's more shelving for yourj ars of chutney and vino. The rest of the space could supply any amount of uses - yoga studio? Home cinema? Teenager storage? The kitchen/diner is splendid having been recently redesigned by Dulwich Design Kitchens. Appliances include gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher and fancy extractor. Folding doors open wide to your bountiful rear garden - also designed by Kate Eyre. It stretches a confident 75 feet and enjoys a healthy lawn fringed with mature flora and shrubs.Read More

Back inside, head up your wonderful stairs with carpet runner and restored banister. Your front facing double bedroom boasts a retiled fireplace and more stripped timber floors. Your fitted wardrobes and shelving are by 'Eclectic Interiors'. A second fine double bedroom comes next with fireplace, fitted wardrobe and a peaceful rear view. Your bathroom on this floor is a modern affair with wash hand basin, shower/bath, wc, heated towel rail and bidet. Bedroom three completes the first floor with double doors opening to your balcony which overlooks the garden - a fine spot for a summer chill out. Upward bound again you find the fourth bedroom, with fireplace and shelving and small fitted wardrobe. On this floor there is also a modern shower room with shower, basin, wc and heated towel rail. The fifth bedroom on the top floor boasts a large well equipped en suite with underfloor heating and a fitted wardrobe on the landing.

What a charming home! You're spoilt for transport links too. Peckham Rye and Denmark Hill stations have regular train services to Clapham Junction, Canary Wharf and Islington, and central London terminals including London Bridge, Blackfriars [with through trains to St Pancras and beyond] and Victoria, as well as connections to the Northern and Jubilee lines. Sainsbury’s is a three minute drive and 5 minutes’ walk down the road is Bellenden Road, with its grocers, butchers, bakers, vintage clothes, chocolates, and cafes and gift shops. For more shopping, restaurants and cafes, try Lordship Lane and North Cross Road for some of the best food and gift shops in south London, as well as a Picturehouse Cinema, another butcher’s, a wet fish shop, and a Saturday market.



Local schools are also not a worry! You have Bellenden Primary, the new Belham Primary (opening this year), St John's and St Clement's C of E Primary. JAGS, Harris Academies, Dulwich College and Alleyn's schools are all nearby for the years to come. Peckham Rye Park and Ruskin Park are both nearby. Peckham Rye has formal gardens, a woodland, a lake, sports area, a scenic cafe, skate park, outdoor gym and an adventure playground. Dulwich Park, with its new cafe, lake and very popular playground, is also only ten minutes by car. Likewise, Dulwich Picture Gallery, Britain’s oldest public art gallery is an inspiring place to while away an afternoon or just visit for lunch. Read Less
