Delightful Two Bedroom Period Home With West Facing Garden and Development Potential

A delightful two bedroom Victorian home awaits your perusal along the well placed, leafy and residential Benhill Road, but seconds from the best of Camberwell. The interior has been lovingly renovated to supply spacious, sympathetic accommodation over two lovely floors. The property consists of a large double reception, generous kitchen/diner, two double bedrooms, modern bathroom and a separate wc. There's a pleasing sprinkling of period features throughout as well as expertly chosen paint shades and stripped original floorboards - yum! As if this weren't enough, planning is in place for an exciting L-shaped rear extension, side infill and mansard roof extension! A beautifully crafted westerly 70ft rear garden soaks in every scrap of evening summer sun and you're just moments from the very lovely Brunswick Park - tennis anyone? Transport is taken care of with Denmark Hill station - an easy 15 minute walk up Camberwell Grove.

A good sized, walled front garden with wooden gate and planter bed leads to your recessed portico entrance. The original door, painted sage green, has frosted panes and a pretty woodpecker knocker. Your inner hall greets you with dado rails separating rich 'Basalt' and 'Borrowed Light' walls. Crisp white cornicing, floorboards and staircase contrast nicely. A curved wall seduces you to the right and into the wonderful double reception which boasts a front aspect bay of sash windows. Plantation shutters on the lower level supply privacy and there's a further rear aspect sash window. Shelving and low level storage units run along the left wall, as does a beautiful working period fireplace.

The bright and spacious kitchen/diner is accessed from the end of the hall and supplies opposing rows of marble counters and country style cabinets. There's plenty of space for all modern appliances and an impressive six ring gas range will make light work of Christmas dinner. A dining space sits down by double glass doors which leads out to your sunny patio. This in turn leads to the lawn which is bordered by a further wooden planter bed and three different types of roses. Mature pear and apple trees make for perfect pies and there's an ideal spot for a further patio or composter at the rear. Read More

The first floor landing is carpeted and has more dado rails. The front facing master bedroom enjoys beautifully aged original floors and twin fitted wardrobes which neatly hug the chimney breast. Two sash windows offer a pleasant streetscape below. Your second double bedroom is a bright, carpeted affair with peaceful aspect and loft storage access. The rear of the landing supplies more storage space preceding a bright modern bathroom which dons white suite, marble topped wash hand basin, bath and separate walk-in shower with drencher. Cork tiles and crisp neutral decor keep it slick and stylish. The separate wc has some lovely hand painted Greek themed wallpaper, a contemporary loo and neat wash hand basin.

Here you have easy access to the City and West End from a multitude of buses travelling along Peckham Road. Oval tube (Northern Line zone 2) is a 20 minute walk or 6 minutes on one of the many buses that travel down the Camberwell New Road. Alternatively take a 15 minute stroll up to Denmark Hill station where you can pick up fast, direct and frequent services to Victoria, London Bridge and Blackfriars. The London Overground whizzes you to Clapham Junction, Clapham High Street, Shoreditch and beyond. The local area is a hub of activity with some excellent specialist shops, Camberwell Baths, St Giles Church and many great restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. We love the Camberwell Arms for a cracking roast; The Crooked Well for some posh vino and The Hermit's Cave for a pint of the black stuff. Theo's pizza is wildly popular as is the very yummy FM Mangal - watch those waistbands! Brunswick Park is a minute away for a relaxing Sunday stroll on your way to get breakfast. Read Less
