Wonderful Five Bedroom Victorian Home With Park Views - CHAIN FREE

You'll be charmed at first glance by this splendid parkside Victorian five bedder. Complete with a healthy sprinkling of original features, the property sprawls generously over three floors, each as bright and pleasant as the last. High ceilings, original tiling, cornicing and fireplaces will delight in equal measure. The kitchen enjoys a sunny dual aspect and there's a contemporary bathroom and a handy cellar for your wine collection! The accommodation comprises a vast double reception (perfect for lavish gatherings), a light and lovely kitchen/diner, five proper double bedrooms, bathroom, wc and cellar. The lush and lovely south facing garden is a delight all year round and you're just a few seconds amble from our favourite local park - the Victorian Myatt's Fields Park. The locale, while peaceful and mature, is close to so much! You're less than 10 minute stroll to the bountiful attractions of Camberwell. Oval Station (Northern Line, zone 2) is walkable in around 12 minutes or grab one of the many buses whizzing down Camberwell New Road. Brixton is easily reached on foot for the fab Victoria Line and Loughborough Junction station is also nearby for swift services to Elephant and Castle, Blackfriars and Farringdon.

The handsome red bricked exterior stands tall, facing the leafy perimeter of the park. The surrounding area is well stocked with mature, period homes too. A tiled path leads you forth to a recessed porch, where an original door opens to the hall. Further original tiling invites you inward. The original staircase sits dead ahead with wonderful white risers and varnished wooden treads. Its lower steps curve beautifully. To the left you walk through a wide square arch to meet a vast double reception which stretches over eight metres in length. A wide front aspect bay window and rear French doors supply abundant light and there's a charming working period fireplace to the front of the space. An oblong opening in the hall-side wall supplies yet more light.

The entrance to your lower ground floor cellar sits opposite a well presented guest wc. Your bright and bold kitchen/diner runs almost six metres from the end of the hall. It has a magically airy dual aspect and bi-fold doors that let the summer sunshine flood in. Appliances include an integrated dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and a fancy five ring gas range. Thick cut solid wooden counters and contemporary white cabinets make for a clean-cut tasteful vibe. Outside you'll relax on a south facing paved patio and sun bake (weather permitting) on that generous lawn which is surrounded by well chosen, mature leafiness. Read More

Back in the hall, head up your wide, original staircase to find a bright rear landing. The bathroom is semi tiled and has a roll top bath, period suite and school house radiator. The first of your fantastic five bedrooms faces rear over the garden with Seagrass flooring and a period feature fireplace. The front part of the landing leads to a mammoth front aspect master bedroom which spans the full impressive width of the building. Three large sash windows each peer toward the park - you can watch the gardener potter around the dome greenhouse! Twin fitted storage points flank an original tiled hearth on the far wall.

The third double bedroom sits next door with more Seagrass flooring, fitted storage and a lovely rear aspect. Head upward again to find your second landing with yet more storage. Your fourth double bedroom fronts the street with the best of the park views - our favourite! You'll enjoy another feature fireplace, fitted storage and twin eave storage points. The fifth and final bedroom with ensuite shower room, faces to the rear with garden views has plenty of sunshine and loft storage access.

A number of buses on Camberwell New Road will whizz you to the underground station at the Oval (Northern Line) or take one directly into the West End (a 15-20 minute trip) or Peckham (a 10 minute trip). The fantastic Victoria Line is walkable in 15 minutes for an unbeatable zone 2 tube connection. If you work in the city, Loughborough Junction mainline station (Blackfriars & City Thameslink) is a seven minute walk away. There are shops too within easy walking distance. If the weather's good you can practise your forehand at the tennis courts in Myatts Fields opposite - grab a coffee or let the dog run riot. There's a fantastic playground with water play area and various wholesome weekly activities around the bandstand. We love the regular farmer's market too! After a hard day at the office chill out at the much loved 'Sun of Camberwell’ with good food and great cocktails. We love 'The Hermit's Cave' for a pint of the black stuff and 'The Crooked Well' if you feel like a treat. Camberwell has some highly considered foodie hot spots too. Silk Road has been getting some much deserved press attention of late. It offers traditional Chinese cuisine from Xinjiang province is proving wildly popular with the locals. Good Neighbour is one of the newest kids on the block with a fine selection of wine and charcuterie. Theo’s Pizzeria is scrummy and we have a particular fondness for FM Mangal kebabs. Watch your waistbands! Nearby Brixton (a 15 walk away) has a further flood of fab things to do. The 'Ritzy' cinema is a fab spot to catch art house and mainstream movies. Windrush Square is a lovely spot for a sit down and chat. There's a huge selection of bars and restaurants - the Brixton Village covered market offers everything from Vietnamese to Columbian. Kennington Park with its sports fields and tennis courts is just a fifteen minute walk away. Read Less
