The hall is full of character with wonderfully ornate period cornicing and an original staircase. A step to the right will find you in the grand double reception which has top quality solid oak flooring running its full length. A recrafted marble mantel with original surround and tiling will host the crackle of burning logs come the colder months. This is flanked by the first of your quality bespoke cabinets. A glance upward reveals some well preserved cornice work too. Back through the hall you'll find access to the tanked cellar which runs the full length of the hall and offers plenty of storage - the perfect den for the hoarder amongst us. The kitchen invites you from the rear of the hall with a full range of integrated Neff appliances. Fired Earth splashback tiles run on either side above your granite worktops and underfloor heating will keep you toasty all year. The dining area rests to the rear under a large glass skylight - lovely for munching on the morning croissant.

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).
