Astounding Five Bedroom Georgian Dream Home With Elegant Recent Refurbishment - CHAIN FREE.

Situated prominently at the base of Camberwell Grove, facing the famous Mary Datchelor School, this splendid five bedroom Georgian gem has been re-imagined from tip to toe. Taking its original function as a shop as a starting point, the four floors have been sumptuously designed to align period Georgian features with slick modern practicality. The entrance hall – once the entrance to the shop - is magnificent with its luxurious Georgian panelling lining the walls up through the original staircase, with traditional antique lighting guiding the way. An arched fanlight over your beautiful wide period style door again, lends generous light into the entrance way, taking you off the tree-lined street to feel secure with Banham locks, alarm and sympathetic knocker setting the tone. A Nest doorbell, with cam and voice activated response app ensure that deliveries and visitors alike are easily monitored.

A sliding door leads you to the lavish double reception area, which boasts reinstated dental cornicing in a large open-plan design. Two arched-sash windows invite the vibrant streetscape indoors effectively with a flood of natural light, which hits an antique-glass backsplash. Thick marble counters run on either side toward double Neff ovens where the popular ‘Hide ‘n Slide’ feature enables maximum clearance around the Corian-topped island. Trendy bar stools line the central island, allowing Happy Hour to coincide with dinner prep, with cool Corian shelves ready to stock your finest cocktail glasses. The integrated kitchen has been designed with tall period wardrobes in mind, subtly lined with oak finish and LED lighting: an aesthetic that runs throughout the house including the integrated wardrobes in each of the main bedrooms and family bathroom.

The master bedroom is a stunningly restored period space spanning the width of the house, complete with original Juliet balcony overlooking the Datchelor School. An impeccably restored original fireplace commands attention as a central feature, with period cornice and lighting to complete the luxurious feel of the space. Read More

In the next room, the fully panelled period family bathroom with roll top bathtub on legs sustains the elegance and flavour of the period with unique antique lights gracing either side of the bespoke panel mirror. Another jaw dropping period feature fireplace to soak in front of, with the practicality of fitted storage for towels, lotions, potions, or more likely, a mop and bucket. In contrast to this floor with its gentle greys and period detail, the polished concrete ultra-modern shower room on the ground floor brings you back to modern day. This juxtaposition between restored period luxury and sleek modernity run throughout the house.

A key feature of this property is the lower ground floor, which enables visitors or a Nanny to be self-contained. An en-suite shower room, double bedroom, large reception and laundry/storage area mean that anyone visiting this property can relax with a level of privacy from the upstairs occupant footprint if need be. Equally, the lower ground floor is an ideal space for teenagers or higher-volume residents to have a level of privacy and comfort. At the other end of the house on the top floor, are two more beautiful double bedrooms, one facing the Grove under a canopy of trees and one with a rear aspect of St Giles Church. A large single room with skylight and side aspect sash will supply the perfect home office or nursery with ample integrated space for either more fitted storage or a concealed book shelf.

Oak wooden flooring shifts between herringbone and plank, depending on the mood of the room, with plantation shutters, double glazed wooden framed sash windows and school house radiators adding to the charm. You're within a moment's tree lined ramble of the best of Camberwell - bars, eateries and bountiful London bustle. Nearby green spaces include the charming Brunswick Park with its tennis courts, gallery and cafe. Even closer is St Giles Church grounds - it's a lovely spot for a read of the paper. Transport links are equally impressive with Denmark Hill an easy 12 minute stroll. It boasts unbeatable connections to Victoria, Blackfriars, Elephant & Castle and the London Overground Line will whizz you to Shoreditch and also Canada Water for the Jubilee Line.



Ruskin Park is a short hop and you have the Butterfly Tennis Club on your doorstep. The transport options are good; Denmark Hill station (Zone 2) for fast, regular services to Victoria, Blackfriars and London Bridge is a 7 minute walk. The highly considered London Overground Line has completed its outer orbital route around London and also serves Denmark Hill. Clapham High Street, Clapham Junction, Islington, Shoreditch and Canary Wharf (via Canada Water) are now all easy as pie. There's even a fancy ticket hall to boot! There are also a multitude of buses running close by on Camberwell Church Street into the City and the West End. The very excellent Lyndhurst Primary School is but a moment's stroll as are a plethora of eateries and the excellent Crooked Well is located behind the property on Grove Lane. The award winning 'Camberwell Arms' does a cracking roast and 'The Hermit's Cave' is the best spot for a pint of black. 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 in Camberwell Green. Keeping fit? The recently renovated Camberwell Baths is stunning and within 60 seconds from your door. Read Less
