Impressive Four/Five Bedroom Camberwell Grove Home With Garage and Beautiful Garden - CHAIN FREE.
This Georgian-style four/five bedroom home is spread generously over four sumptuous floors, each as fabulous as the last. At £750 per square foot (not including the garage) and £682 per square foot (including the garage) the property provides notably competitive value compared to that of a period property. Taking pride of place at the lower end of the Grove and part of the much coveted St. George development, the home marries perfectly the surrounding period ambiance with contemporary ingenuity. Accommodation comprises a vast kitchen/diner, large study, two first floor drawing rooms, four double bedrooms (master with dressing room and en suite bathroom), bathroom and large guest wc. A wonderfully landscaped and substantial rear garden stretches over 50 ft and supplies a rear access point onto the equally celebrated Grove Lane. The private double garage is neatly tucked underneath the house and accessed via a secure gate on the lower ground floor. Both Camberwell Grove and Grove Lane make the lion's share of the Camberwell Grove conservation which area boasts some of the best Georgian architecture in our fair city.
The row sits well in its surroundings. London stock brick work, high black railings, hedging planters and a first floor Juliet balcony window box all suit the impeccable period credentials of the Grove. Inside you'll fall in love with wide, tasteful and expertly decorated rooms. A handsome period-style front door, painted black with chrome knocker set, is crowned fittingly with an arched fanlight. Step inside to meet your notably generous hallway. It's wide and welcoming with a tiled floor and neutral wall shades. The study sits on your left with two front facing wooden framed sash windows. This would make a fine fifth bedroom - perfect for guests or the nanny. There's a large guest wc next in line. Marble wall tiles and a marble topped wash hand basin compliment the dark wood recessed cupboards above the loo. You'll also find a handy recessed laundry cupboard with space and plumbing for the washing machine and tumble dryer. The hall widens after the wc to allow for your solid stately staircase. Two further storage spaces will take care of the hoover et al.
A positively vast kitchen/diner stretches almost ten metres from the end of the hall through a wall of glass pane doors. The kitchen counters run generously on the left with sleek, thin cut granite above tasteful dark wood cabinets. Appliances include a five ring gas hob, extra wide oven, integrated microwave/oven and dishwasher. The far side of the island accommodates up to five stools for croissant munching. After all this there's still space for serving up a banquet in the dining area. Your sunny garden is part paved in York stone and offers plenty of al fresco entertaining space in addition to a handy rear access point to Grove Lane.
An upward ascent via that sturdy staircase reveals a large square landing with double doors on either side that lead to a formal lounge at the rear of the property and a spacious TV lounge/family room at the front. Each enjoys a triptych of stunning tall sash windows. Leafy views of the Grove draw you forward - it's a beautiful aspect. Another flight of fancy upward delivers you to the master suite. It spans the entire second floor and will surely seal the deal. The sleeping space is vast and fronts the Grove through three further sash windows. There's easily enough space for a super king sized bed, chaise longue, dresser, Peloton and yoga matt.
To the rear of this floor you find the dressing area, which has opposing rows of bespoke retro-grey wardrobes. The adjoining en suite is a proper dish. Twin wash hand basins enjoy a full run of additional counter space (perfect for the lotions and potions). A stunning contemporary free-standing bath takes the main stage. Beyond this lies a triple walk in shower with drencher and separate wc. Three rear facing frosted sash windows allow the light in and steam out - perfect! The final ascent brings you to your three further bedrooms. They're all ample doubles of course. The front facing number has two sash windows which peer on to the mature leafy canopy the road is known for, along with an en suite bathroom. The other two rooms face rear and there's a well stocked, smart shower room in between.

The secret garden is located on the D’Eynsford Estate in Camberwell. Located just off Kimpton Road, behind the KFC on Camberwell Church Street. The idea of a Community Garden arose as a way to generate greater community cohesion on the estate and as somewhere to relax and enjoy ourselves, as well as making new friends. The garden is situated on a previously derelict site, between Mary Datchelor Close and Camberwell Church Street. Work began on the garden in March 2009, pulling up the weeds and preparing the soil. The first funding from the O2 Community fund of £1000 built a green house. Then, at the end of 2010 they got £25,000 from the Cleaner, Greener, Safer fund at Southwark Council to completely redevelop the site and make it more attractive and accessible. The work was completed (more or less) by the Walworth Garden Farm in March and April 2010 and then they planted out hundreds of new bushes, flowers and vegetables.
The Secret Garden is currently open Saturdays 11am – 2pm and Sundays 10am – 12noon. Everyone is welcome to enjoy the space or have a go at gardening! There are always jobs to do to suit all ages and abilities.
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).
