Sitting on a lovely corner plot on the edges of the very lovely Talfourd Road and Lyndhurst Grove is this remarkably homely four bedroom Victorian treat. There's a real sense of the building's original glory throughout. You'll marvel at original fireplaces, timber floors, shutters and a rather pretty roll top bath! The rooms are all a good size and meander comfortably over four charming floors. There's a neat and well stocked wrap-around garden, compact terrace, side entrance and a flood of fitted storage - if you're not tempted yet we give up! This area is a proper gem, close to the laid back villagy vibe of Bellenden Road. Peckham and its vibrant attractions are an easy walk as is Camberwell where it'll take you the first year to get through all the gastro pubs, eateries and cafes. Transport is great with Peckham Rye and Denmark Hill within a ramble - both are included on the imminent East London line extension.
The solid black double doors invite you up four steps on the Lyndhurst Grove side. Once inside you're greeted with a lovely entrance hall defined by rustic original boards, simple coving and a glorious staircase with curling hardwood banister. The main reception seduces you inward with a wide, high bay of sash windows that presides over the street. High hedging fringing the garden affords you privacy. The original marble mantel is kept company on either side by twin low level storage units and shelving. Decorative cornicing and pictures finish the period charm offensive perfectly. The second reception/dining room, presented in a rich terracotta shade, is over the far side of the hall and has another original mantel and fireplace. French doors open to a set of funky glass steps which lead down the garden - there's even room for a seating arrangement from which you can enjoy your green fingered efforts.
Descending to the lower ground floor reveals a magnificent herringbone brick floor that continues throughout the whole level. It gives a wonderfully earthy, natural feel to the rooms. The dining room faces toward Talfourd Road and enjoys a further bay window and pretty garden views. You'll just love that exposed brick chimney breast! A pantry and further storage cupboard sit neatly along the right wall. Each has an exterior window. Moving to the opposite side of the lower landing you meet the kitchen which will comfortably seat a big family. Another exposed brick breast plays host to a five ring gas range. The counters are black granite and the sink is a double ceramic butler - all in tune with the style. A side access point to the garden completes this floor.
Moving upward to the first floor you'll find the first of your bedrooms, a huge double spanning the full width of the house. It's a bright, pleasant room with another original feature fireplace and mantel. There's more fitted storage here and on the landing (as well as a handy sink). The main bathroom is light and lovely and boldly boasts that free standing original bath. The suite is completed by a loo, bidet, basin and yet more storage. White tiling to dado level compliments the whitewashed timber floors. Continuing up the staircase (dressed with a nice woollen runner) you find another airy landing with side facing sash, basin and handy shower. Two roughly equally sized bedrooms face toward Talfourd Road. Both have wood panelling and the left hand side room a wooden feature mantel. The fourth and final bedroom faces up Lyndhurst Grove and enjoys a final feature fireplace and storage cupboard.
Talfourd Road and Lyndhurst Grove are part of a network of pleasing streets with large family houses. Both Peckham Rye and Denmark Hill stations (zone 2) are inside a 10 minute walk for services to London Bridge, Victoria and Blackfriars and a whole variety of buses run into town along Peckham Road, just five minutes away. Phase 2 of the East London Line will be tootling its way into Denmark Hill in 2012, meaning Shoreditch and the City will be a cinch. Camberwell and its many bars and restaurants are but a short ramble and there's always the fantastic 'Victoria Inn' and 'Ganapati' on Bellenden Road. The popular Villa pre-prep and nursery is down the road and the Dulwich Foundation schools are a 12-minute drive away. Shops, restaurants and green spaces in East Dulwich, Camberwell and Peckham are all nearby too.
