Fantastic Three Bedroom Victorian Home With Leafy Garden and Loft Room - CHAIN FREE.
A wonderfully presented period home with original features, quality contemporary fittings, tasteful touches and a simply gorgeous bijou rear garden - there's everything to love about this three bedroom Victorian gem. Split over two and a half floors, plus fab loft space, the accommodation comprises a lovely reception room with adjoining snug/study, an incredible rear kitchen extension (with showstopping Crittal-style rear glass doors), three lovely double bedrooms (one en suite) and that loft room, with fitted storage, which is ripe for home working or any amount of uses. The fixtures and fittings have been chosen excellently as have the Farrow and Ball paint shades. There's a healthy sprinkling of original features too. It's a really special home. The location is highly prized being within moments from Bellenden Village, Camberwell and Peckham. Even closer is the very lovely Lucas Gardens. Transport links abound with nearby Denmark Hill Station (a 12 minute walk) and any number of bus routes on nearby Peckham Road. It is also a 25 minute cycle into town.
The handsome exterior has some original stucco work and a recessed portico with an original door. Outside there is also a bespoke built bike shed with living roof. The inner hall has handy inbuilt shoe storage and enjoys the usual high ceilings and original cornice work, as well as beautiful aged timber floors. These continue left into your picture perfect double reception which is separated by wide original stripped wooden doors. The room has a wide bay of double glazed wooden framed sash windows. Plantation shutters on the lower panes afford privacy for your binge-watching Sundays. A beautiful cast iron log burner sits within a contemporary mantel for a magically cosy winter vibe. The rear section of the space can be used separately as a snug or playroom. From here you meet a handy wc and storage opposite.
The kitchen/diner is sublime. Stretching the full width of the building and facing your beautiful south facing rear garden, which backs onto other gardens, through a floor to ceiling wall of Crittal-style double glass doors - it's just a joy! Heat-reflecting skylights afford yet more light. Sumptuous Corian counters run atop sleek grey contemporary cabinets with brushed brass handles. The appliances include an integrated dishwasher, bin storage, fridge and separate freezer, two ovens and a five ring gas hob. A separate Corian topped island supplies more dicing and slicing space and a breakfast bar for casual dining. The main dining table will sit over by those magnificent doors which open wide to the split level rear oasis. Abundant leafy foliage makes it the perfect spot for al fresco dining where you'll enjoy the scent of lavender, rosemary and jasmine. A fruit-producing grape vine completes the space beautifully.
The kitchen/diner links back around to the hall which offers understairs access to a useful cellar. It's a great space for hiding a house-load of mess. Heading up to the first return you meet a fantastic family bathroom with a wet-room style shower, Fired Earth tiling and a separate bath and contemporary suite. The landing outside houses a handy utility space, including the washing machine, dryer, general storage and a butler sink with antique wall taps and counter space. The master bedroom is on the first floor and enjoys fitted storage and two front aspect sash windows. A second lovely double bedroom faces rear with more bespoke fitted storage. The second return hosts the third double bedroom - a beautifully bright affair with adjoining wet room. You'll access the loft room via pull down stairs on the first floor landing. It's a well proportioned, bright space with gently sloping ceilings and numerous skylights for an airy experience.

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).
