Resplendent Grade II Listed Regency Four Bed Beauty on Camberwell Grove.
These elegant Regency style homes are noted for their impressive interiors, high ceilings and wonderful Juliette balconies - indeed if this particular gem looks familiar, you'll have seen its special mention on BBC2's Secret History of our Streets! Generously arranged over four bright and tasteful floors, the accommodation sprawls to comprise a huge double reception, kitchen, dining room, four beautiful double bedrooms (master en suite), bountiful bathroom, wc and utility room. With views of the garden never far away there's a wonderful sense of airiness and space; the additional benefit of a sunny westerly aspect means you'll enjoy every last scrap of summer sunshine throughout. The decor is a sheer joy - you'll note solid, bespoke fittings, wood panelling, designer wallpaper and expertly chosen paint shades. All the internal doors are in the period style and have beautiful brass and chrome 'beehive' handles. The garden is 80ft of professionally landscaped, west facing loveliness. The location leaves as much to rave about. Camberwell Grove offers some of the finest Georgian, Regency, Victorian and Edwardian homes in our fair city. Tree lined and keenly placed for every conveyable amenity, you'll find yourself rarely roaming far from home. When you do, Denmark Hill station is just a five minute amble for swift services to the city and beyond. East Dulwich station is just a touch further and supplies yet more regular central connections.
A beautifully manicured front garden with healthy lawn and high black railings and gate. The portico is high and proud and presents your front door - with oblong frosted panes and brass knocker. The Banham intercom system will alert you to your gentleman callers. A truly impressive entrance hall awaits you. Peering over the rear garden through the first of those enchanting Juliette balconies, it creates the perfect first impression. High ceilings, wooden panelling, designer 'Harlequin' wall coverings and some stunning herringbone Parquet flooring set the tone for what is to come. A curved ceiling arch leads left to find your picture perfect L shaped, reception room. It's a magnificent space that begs for entertaining. Further French doors and a rear facing, floor to ceiling sash window offer abundant light and leafiness. Both ends of the room have Chesney marble fireplaces with matching mantels. One is a gas, coal effect number and the other is open. Simple cornicing overhead and some dulcet paint shades finish the space beautifully.
Heading downward you're treated to views over the sunny rear terrace. Your huge kitchen fronts the street with a vast central granite topped island. A further run of counter and cabinet space generously flows into an L shape to incorporate an integrated Miele dishwasher and oven/microwave. A large fridge/freezer with ice maker is thrown in for good measure. There's a two ring Miele induction hob on the island and a super four-oven gas Aga. The Christmas turkey won't know what hit it. Your adjoining dining room is bathed in westerly sunlight from mid day to sunset! Double doors open from here to a beautifully arranged lower terrace and on, via grand steps, to your 80 ft garden which boasts impressive landscaping. Tomorrow's World meets Gardener's World with your super dooper programmable irrigation system! You won't need to lift a finger. A neat shed at the end will house the Flymo fabulously. Back inside, you find a well stocked utility room with counter space, sink and plumbing for the washing machine and tumble dryer. There's enough additional shelving for all the spices and sweeteners. A large wc with wood panelling, period suite and pretty bee wallpaper steals more rear views. The house has been gifted two separate boilers and a fancy Mega flow pressurised hot water system.
Trot back upward to the first floor landing to find a bright and inviting atmosphere. Twin, bespoke book shelves hug either side of the master bedroom entrance. This is a notably fantastic room with another floor to ceiling Juliette balcony peering down over the Grove. Floral wallpaper and neutral carpeting keep it timeless and tasteful. Your adjoining, dual aspect en suite is fit for a queen. Both bath and double walk-in shower make it the perfect pamper parlour. A second bedroom, currently used as a lavish dressing room, enjoys a wall of fitted wardrobes and more garden views. The second floor delivers another bathroom - this time with shower and pretty roll top bath. The third, front facing bedroom rivals the master below in space and elegance - we're in love with that delightful 'Osborne and Little' wallpaper! Your fourth and final bedroom, a bright and friendly affair, spies down with an eagle-eyed leafy vista. Retro wallpaper and fitted shelving continue the charm offensive - and there's yet more storage on the upper landing.
The transport options are excellent; Denmark Hill station (Zone 2) for fast, regular services to Victoria and Blackfriars is a five minute walk away.

There are also a multitude of buses running on either Grove Lane (two minutes away) or Camberwell Church Street (a seven minute walk) into the City and the West End. Local eateries will keep you perpetually calorie counting - we love The Camberwell Arms, a winner of the Observer Food Monthly’s Best Sunday Lunch award, five minutes down the Grove. Camberwell Art School and the Dulwich Foundation schools are all a short drive or bus ride away and there are plenty of shops nearby including a host of independent food shops on Camberwell Church Street and Camberwell Green, plus a new, modern library and playground.

Ruskin Park is a short hop and you have the Butterfly Tennis Club on your doorstep.
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).
