Contemporary Eco-Friendly Three/Four Bedroom Home With Charming Georgian Facade - CHAIN FREE.

The foundations of this splendid architect designed house date back to 1787, however everything behind the façade is contemporary. The idea for the re-design, deftly carried out by architect John Eger and interior designer Harriet Paterson, was to create a responsible, connected and contemporary family home. It’s laid out in an ‘L’ shape formation with active, living and entertaining spaces opening horizontally across the ground floor of the house and garden. The private, more peaceful retreat spaces spread vertically up to the top of the house. Further benefits include state of the art wiring for connectivity, which means light, sound, heat, smoke detectors, TV’s are all controllable by iPads (and iPhones). Each room features a Sonos speaker embedded discreetly into the ceiling for audio throughout the home and garden.

The property's eco-credentials are unrivalled with an under-floor heating system fed by an air-source heat pump in the garden. This works like air-conditioning in reverse, bringing heat from the air via a heat exchanger into the house. The glazing throughout the house gives good solar gain that, combined with good insulation, reduces the demand for additional heating. At the rear, on the first floor are solar photovoltaic panels that generate a useful amount of electricity. The lighting throughout is LED and there's a 2700 litre underground tank which stores rainwater. This is used to flush the lavatory, wash the clothes, and wash the dishes.

A handsome exterior with London stock brickwork and sash windows with tasteful black frames invites you inward off the tree-lined Grove. Opening across the ground floor are a series of rooms, which can be opened up and closed off as required. The entrance hall becomes a reading room. The open plan kitchen/diner meets the TV room with a glass retractable roof. The stylish kitchen, by Sebastian Cox for DeVol, enjoys a full range of quality Miele appliances. A curtain separates the kitchen from the TV room creating an intimate sitting area. The whole ground floor is full of built-in furniture and hidden storage making the most of the available space. At the back of the house is a closed guest suite, featuring a sofa that unveils as a double bed, and a shower room with assisted access fittings. The garden stretches a generous 75 foot and is filled with abundant greenery. Read More

A spiral staircase takes you up to the first and second floors of the house. Each landing has floor to ceiling storage designed specifically for the space by John Eger. The wonderful bathroom enjoys a freestanding bath, dimmable lights and a walk-in shower. Next to this you meet a snug with floor-to ceiling bookshelves and a bio fuel fire. On the top floor are two bedrooms. The master bedroom to the rear has views of the St Giles church spire which was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott in 1844. The skylight in the master bedroom is retractable and opens up to expose the room to fresh air and the sky. The nursery boasts a personalised hand-drawn mural from artist Ed Boxall. Large skylights at the top of the house let light flood into each room and down the spiral stairwell.

This immaculate and stylish house has been featured in numerous magazines including Livingetc and 25 Beautiful Homes and was named London’s best Residential Eco House by the Open House Festival in 2018.

The Camberwell Grove Conservation area is a much sought-after address. Whilst only a mere two miles from Westminster, Tate Britain and the Imperial War Museum, Camberwell Grove supplies an exceptionally tranquil boulevard, lined with lush cathedral-like Plane trees. It hosts some of south London’s finest period properties and enjoys a wealth of local amenities. Ruskin Park is a short hop, and you have the Butterfly Tennis Club on your doorstep. The transport options are great; Denmark Hill station (Zone 2) is a 6-minute walk for fast, regular services to Victoria, Blackfriars, Farringdon and St. Pancras/Kings Cross. The highly considered London Overground Line supplies further services to Clapham High Street, Clapham Junction, Islington, Shoreditch and Canary Wharf (via Canada Water). 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 an abundance 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. The much-loved Camberwell Baths is stunning and just three minutes from your door. Read Less
