Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Bag yourself one of south London’s finest, fanciest addresses with this two bed penthouse apartment of over 700 square feet, set within Camberwell Grove conservation area. Camberwell Grove is famed for its beautiful Georgian architecture. It follows the line of a grove of plane trees which once led from a Tudor manor house south to the top of a hill, which afforded an excellent view of the City of London (approximately three miles north). The smart street was recently dedicated a charming episode in the BBC series ‘The Secret History of Our Streets’. One to look up. Denmark Hill station is pleasingly close (7mins by foot) for zone 2 regular and Overground trains. Permit-parking on street. Leasehold.

There is a main front door for the four upper apartments (the lower ground flat having its own front door) and each one occupies a floor of the grand Georgian building. The communal hall is high-ceilinged, neat and white. Ascend to the second floor for your own front door and you’ll first arrive at a half landing area that’s super handy for coat and shoe storage. Once in the flat proper, a huge reception/dining room impresses at 19ft by 17ft. It has serious loft-appeal with a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. It’s an ideal entertaining or escaping space, and the current owners have installed tasteful, hand-built storage for books and the like. The kitchen is tucked around the corner and has a modern feel with white units and stainless steel detail and appliances (included in the sale). Two enormous windows onto the kitchen and reception space keep matters bright. The property’s two generous, carpeted bedrooms are set to the front of the building. The master is 17ft by 10ft, with a feature fireplace and the second bedroom is 14ft by 7ft, with a built-in wardrobe. Both have traditional sash-style windows. The shower room sits off the hall area and it’s contemporary in style with recessed lighting, an oversized shower and has a window to the side of the building.

You’re on lovely high ground here and London Bridge, London Victoria, Clapham Junction, Kings Cross St Pancras and Canary Wharf (via Canada Water) are all quickly reached with multiple transport options close by (Denmark Hill Station is just 0.3miles away, East Dulwich Station = 0.5miles, Peckham Rye Station = 0.8miles) plus local social hubs Bellenden Road and Camberwell Church Street. Lettsom Gardens is a top local secret space with woodland and allotments (get your key for a nominal yearly fee). Local parks include Ruskin Park – with a lot going on for the kids and bandstand events throughout the summer, Warwick Gardens (with annual dog show) and Peckham Rye Park and Common, with hopefully soon to reopen crowd-funded Lido!

A large Sainsbury’s store is local on Dog Kennel Hill. or nip down to new M&S Food Hall on Lordship Lane. The Hill Bakery delivers from nearby Grove Lane. The South London Gallery is close at hand. Local cafes and restaurants include Theo’s, Daily Goods, The Camberwell Arms and Queen’s. Local watering holes include The Hermit’s Cave, The Tiger, The Phoenix and The Crooked Well (this last one’s also a classy restaurant). The Dulwich independent schools are but a short drive, and popular local primaries include Dog Kennel Hill, Lyndhurst and The Belham (run by Dulwich Hamlet Educational Trust). Camberwell leisure centre at the foot of Camberwell Grove on Artichoke Place has good classes and gym and swim facilities. Also at the foot of the hill is Butterfly Tennis Club and Zen Yoga studio next door. For more options, East Dulwich, Dulwich Village, Herne Hill and Brixton are all local.
