5 bedroom semi-detached house for saleDeepdene Road, London, SE5
A rare example of Edwardian splendour! Awash with original features this 5 bedroom semi-detached home has two grand reception rooms and huge south facing garden, set on desirable Deepdene Road.
It’s not often when a house ticks all the boxes but if you’re looking to live in a large period home in a beautiful location, with excellent transport links, great schools and a friendly supportive community, then this is the home for you.
You will enjoy views of the famous landmarks of central London whilst you stroll along a tranquil setting of tree lined streets with the award winning Ruskin Park only moments away.
Set back from the road you can enjoy more greenery from the mature bushes, shrubs and conifer trees as a terracotta tiled pathway leads you to your good sized porch with ample space for coats and wellies. A beautiful period door with original stained glass welcomes you inside. Wow, what a hallway! Mums have no fear; you can park at least three buggies in here, the hall’s so big that it even has its own fireplace.
The front reception room; a bright and airy lounge to the left of the hall, has a stunning stained glass bay window providing an abundance of light and another original fireplace to boot! Stripped wood floorboards, shelving in the alcoves, picture rails and a wonderful decorative architrave encases the doorframe; typical of the era with a beautiful leaf design.
Further down the hall is the second reception room with french doors opening onto the conservatory/utility room. This large room shows the same attention to detail with an ornate fireplace, beautiful stained glass windows, picture rails and stripped wood floorboards. Step out into the utility room which is plumbed for a washing machine, large sink and space for a dryer.
The kitchen is to the left of the ground floor and is very inviting. It’s has a sociable layout and immediately you feel at ease in the space in which to cook and hang out with your family and friends. Spot lights and oak flooring keep the light and airy feel and tie in nicely with the mussel coloured units, finished with chunky butchers block work tops and on trend Alhambra tiles. There’s plenty of space to dine and on warm summer evenings, just open those lovely french doors and enjoy the garden view.
Up a sweeping flight of stairs to a grand landing with incredible stained glass roof light and access to the large attic. There’s plenty of room for another two bedrooms and bathroom (subject to planning).
There are five bedrooms on the first floor, four doubles and one large single. Each one has kept all the original features. The master bedroom will be a wonderful room to wake up in. It has a large stained glass bay window, pretty original fire place and an adjoining door between the second bedroom – very handy as a nursery or dressing room.
The third bedroom is a large single with a fire place and sash window and the fourth bedroom is a large double with all original features and garden views.
Finally the fifth bedroom doesn’t disappoint, another large double with a fireplace with original tiles and a built in storage cupboard under the stairs.
The family sized bathroom has green painted floor boards which compliment the gorgeous original white and green tiling that goes half way up the walls. There’s a pedestal basin, bath and two heated towel rails. There’s also room for a separate shower, should you choose. There’s a separate toilet which is adjacent.
The large rear garden is south facing with a good sized patio, lawn area and vegetable planters. There’s even room for chickens… not often you hear that in zone 2.
Deepdene Rd is a quiet residential street just 0.5 miles from Herne Hill Station with a fast service to Victoria. Denmark Hill is even closer and has the added benefit of the East London line. You are very close to all of the amazing independent restaurants, bars and cafes of Herne Hill and Camberwell and at the bottom of your road you have the delights of Ruskin Park. On Sundays there is a fantastic Farmers Market which showcases local produce and crafts. There’s also an excellent choice of schools in the area, both independent and state.
