Beautiful Early-Victorian Three or Four Bedroom Home With Elegant Features.

This delightful early-Victorian three bedroom home sits within the Sceaux Gardens Conservation Area. Spread over three charming floors it boasts some lovely late-Georgian features - most notably a beautifully curved staircase, feature fireplaces, two very unusual curved doors and gorgeous sash windows. The accommodation currently comprises two large receptions, one of which with an elegant oval shape, a contemporary kitchen/diner with adjoining playroom/guest bedroom, three further bedrooms, guest wc, utility room and two bathrooms. The rear garden is fittingly pretty and the location is supremely convenient. Southampton Way supplies shops and cafes and you're within easy reach of the countless attractions of Camberwell and Peckham. For any last-minute groceries after work, the little Tesco is three minutes from your door. From here the daily commute is also easy. Peckham Rye Station is a brisk 15 minute walk for services to London Bridge, Victoria and Blackfriars. The London Overground also whizzes you to Clapham, Shoreditch and Canada Water for the Jubilee Line. The 136 and 343 buses are on your doorstep and Elephant & Castle tube is a quick 10 minute bus jaunt. Further bus services on Camberwell Road get you to Victoria and Paddington. or walk past the tennis courts and rose gardens of Burgess Park to any number of buses to Holborn, Farringdon, the West End and the City.

The house sits behind a mature tree which supplies dappled shade and privacy. Steps lead up to your original door and inward to a most wonderful entrance hall. The original staircase, with impressive hardwood banister, curls upward confidently. There is tonnes of hanging space for your art works and some lovely high ceilings. The front-facing reception enjoys a triptych of original sash windows and a handsome period feature mantel. Further along the hall the wall curves beautifully to present a second marvellous reception room. The space, thanks to ingeniously integrated original storage and curved doors, follows a unique oval shape on one side. A wood burning stove sits on the far wall and there are French doors with original shutters and a juliette balcony looking out over your pretty garden. This has a healthy lawn, paved patio and plenty of mature greenery. The ground floor is completed by a handy guest wc and steps down to the garden.

Heading downward to the lower ground floor, you meet a nicely presented lower landing. The kitchen/diner is a fine size and hosts sympathetic contemporary counters, integrated appliances, underfloor heating and a fancy range cooker. A further reception room adjoins to the rear via sliding wooden doors, currently used as a playroom/spare bedroom with yet more garden access via original French doors. Next to this sits a modern bathroom with eyecatching tiling and stylish suite. A large utility room completes this floor. Upward bound to the first floor, via that show-stopping staircase, you meet a bright upper level. There are two bedrooms facing over the rear garden. Both are carpeted and one boasts an original ornate feature fireplace. The master bedroom sits the far side of the landing with another large sash window and feature mantel. Last but not least comes the family bathroom which is finished with a modern suite and shower over the bath. Up above there is a large loft space currently used for storage which could be converted to additional living space, subject to planning permission. Read More

For coffee, croissants, books, antiques, flowers and dry cleaning services, go no further than Bellenden Road (around a 10 minute walk) where you will also find a number of good, local eateries. The South London Gallery Cafe is great for impressing visitors with! There's a handy Tesco Express on Southampton Way and you're within easy walking distance of Burgess Park. Rye Lane is tantalisingly close for any amount of culture. We love the Bussey Building for its rooftop bars and cinema! The highly considered Villa Nursery is as close - now that's an easy morning drop off! A whole variety of buses run into town along Peckham Road, just two minutes away. There are plenty of nearby pubs and eateries to enjoy - we love the Victoria Inn for pints, vino and nosh. Ganapati and The Begging Bowl are similarly popular haunts. The wide open green spaces of Peckham Rye Park are also within easy reach. Even closer is the very lovely Brunswick Park and Warwick Gardens. Both fine spots for a read of the papers. Read Less
