Elegant Five Storey Georgian Residence with Tranquil Landscaped Garden - CHAIN FREE.
With its proud, imposing stature and fabulous flat fronted facade this magnificent five storey Georgian townhouse impresses from first glance. Sitting along one of southeast London's premier tree lined period streets the property boasts the perfect marriage of traditional charm and modern convenience. That first floor drawing room is truly spectacular! The accommodation is generously proportioned and extends to include kitchen/diner, drawing room, reception room, four double bedrooms, en suite, utility area and two bathrooms. Denmark Hill (a 6 minute stroll) hosts the fab London Overground Line which offers a host of connections including Shoreditch, Clapham Junction and Islington. Canary Wharf (via Canada Water) is a cinch too! 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.
A long bright hallway entices us forward with rich solid oak floors, pale neutral wall shades and majestic high ceilings synonymous with the era. To the rear of the hall, a curving staircase precedes French doors which frame a wonderful leafy garden view. The magnificent kitchen/reception stretches the full length of the house enjoying eye-widening sash windows to front and rear. Farrow and Ball's 'Stone Blue' rises to picture rail level. A dining area fit for a banquet sits to the front while to the rear you're spoiled with stunning lacquered solid oak worktops and a six ring gas range. The cabinets are plentiful and complimentary. To the left you'll find more storage, an integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher and a twin bowl stainless steel sink and drainer. Picture rails allow for sympathetic hanging of artwork. Further down the hall there lays a deep understairs recessed cupboard preceding a handy guest wc, presented in 'Stiffkey Blue', with contemporary white suite, heated towel rail and overhead Velux. Access to the garden is offered through those charming French doors in the hall. It's beautifully stocked, leafy and generous with a wide wooden shed to the rear.
Head up the original staircase to the first floor to find the main reception/drawing room boasts similarly impressive proportions. With two romantic Juliet balconies fronting the Grove and a friendly sash to the rear the room enjoys magically dappled light. A regal white marble mantel and working fireplace act as the main focal point and more solid oak floors are matched to perfection with more gorgeous Farrow and Ball (Vert de Terre) on the walls. The room simply begs to host the most lavish of do's. Another brief trot upward to the second floor rewards you with a superbly sized master bedroom. Enjoying the width of the house you'll find two original sashes to the front framing leafy views of the Grove. Two modern fitted wardrobes flank a tasteful white feature mantel with contrasting black interior. Farrow and Ball's 'Castle Grey' on the walls is sleek and studious. The dazzling en suite adjoins to the rear. Enjoying both shower unit and utterly fabulous oversized inset bath the space satisfies all your pampering needs. A twin bowl wash hand basin offers storage below and is crowned in the same luxurious marble that graces the floor and bath casement.
One final ascent to the third floor gives you two further double bedrooms the front of which, as below, enjoys two front aspect sash windows. A further bathroom lies behind with modern white suite, Travertine wall tiles, heated towel rail and skylight. The landing offers a wall of storage leading to the third bedroom which has yet more storage and leafy garden views. The lower ground floor enjoys a pretty courtyard seating space out front. Here you'll enjoy the fourth double bedroom, a large stylishly presented reception, utility area and tiled bathroom.
There's excellent access to the City from Denmark Hill station which serves Blackfriars and Victoria. The London Overground Line vastly increases your connectivity to the tube network. You are also close to good local restaurants, bars, green spaces plus a Sainsbury's superstore on Dog Kennel Hill. School catchment is superb with Lyndhurst Primary and the very wonderful Villa School and Nursery both close. Dulwich Foundation schools are a 5 minute drive for older children. Plenty of fab night spots around too - try The Camberwell Arms, The Crooked Well or The Hermits Cave. Camberwell Grove residents can get keys to lovely Lettsom Gardens (a couple of minutes walk away) or just hop in the car and head to Dulwich Park.
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).
