The inner hall greets you with those beautiful wooden floors and matching oak fitted units. Dead ahead you spy the first of your leafy garden views. The space has a real sense of depth. To your left lies the kitchen-diner which has a lovely window seat in the wide bay of double glazed sash. It's the perfect spot for formal and family dining. A further side aspect window with stained glass sits over your slick, contemporary cabinets and counters which run on two walls. Integrated appliances include fridge, freezer and dishwasher. The four ring gas hob and oven sit on the rear wall. A bespoke moveable unit, designed by the same architect, offers further dicing and slicing space.

They're in abundance throughout. Your bright single bedroom/study peers front.
Head along the hall toward a glass pane door which leads to and frames your beautiful walled rear garden. That jaw dropping wall of Crittall windows and double doors opens left to the reception room. Your rear bay window also opens to the garden where you find a brick bed patio and lengthy lush lawn. Original tessellated period tiling trims the bay window. The garden enjoys privacy on all sides - as well as mature magnolia and fig trees. You'll enjoy abundant bird watching opportunities too! The current owners have even spied the odd Heron. A spacious side return leads via brick bed path to the front garden. Back inside you find your first double bedroom completing the ground floor with a row of deep fitted storage units.

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).
