Why should you buy me?
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION really is the choice phrase, however to spare boring those that know, a more complete list of the top local amenities is recorded below this description.
Occupying the whole first floor of a grand Victorian semi-detached house, the flat not only has the benefit of no neighbours above, it also features two huge loft spaces, one of which has had planning granted for a hotel like master bedroom with en-suite if desired.
Unlike most first-floor apartments, the property also gets the benefit of its own large section of West facing garden, but not just with the traditional side access… it has a mystery door in the flat down to the garden (YES MYSTERY DOOR, you read correctly!), perfect for surprising guests or for summer BBQs when you want the kitchen extending out to the garden.
Car owners (or those who want their guest’s cars close) will also be glad that (again not typical with first floor conversions) the flat has shared use of the front garden and sole use of the off-street parking space.
There is just one ground floor neighbour below who own the other 50% share of freehold, so the two flats do not pay ground rent and each have an equal stake of the building, which is a key advantage over leasehold alternatives for numerous reasons. I (the agent) would be happy to explain if required.
Internally the floorspace (including the two loft spaces) is far greater than most alternatives – measuring in at 1730ft2 (160.7m2), and as shown in the floorplan, the rooms are each brilliantly proportioned.
The 4-piece bathroom suite is a godsend for the ageless debate of shower vs bath, and the bath is larger than most to perhaps even accommodate two!
The owner has lived in the property for over 20 years but wanted to move out and refurbish, to ensure the property is a ‘ready to move in’ blank canvas for the new owners and to sell chain free to ensure there are no sticky timescale issues.
Virtually everything in the flat is brand new, including plumbing, electrics, plastered walls, flooring and of course the kitchen & bathroom.
Despite being so close to so much, Underhill Road is a quiet Victorian street in the heart of East Dulwich connecting Lordship Lane with the centre of Barry Road, and is walking distance to Lordship Lane, Peckham Rye & Dulwich Village.
A rare bonus is the free on street parking – which saves scrapping around for visitors permits if required.
For public transport, as pictured, the P13 bus actually stops almost directly outside the flat. The P13 runs from Streatham Station to New Cross Gate Station and would be quickest to West or East Dulwich Station in the mornings/evening commute but also stops close to Peckham Rye Station.
Peckham Rye is one of the most convenient stations in SE London, featuring the same National Rail line as East Dulwich (to London Bridge – 10mins), two additional fast lines to all sides of the city (Victoria – 17mins, Blackfriars - 16mins, Farringdon – 18mins & St Pancras – 23 mins) plus the Overground to trendy hotspots (like Clapham – 8mins, Canada Water – 10mins, Shoreditch - 20mins & Hoxton – 22mins).
For cyclists, the City is approximately 30 minutes away (according to Google), with much of the journey by dedicated cycle paths, parks and quiet cycle routes.
St Dunstan’s, Alleyn’s, Dulwich College and JAGS are all a short drive. Local state primary schools include Goodrich and Heber while older kids can apply to either of the Harris academies at Peckham Rye or Kingsdale.
Walk down the Rye for Peckham’s creative quarter (Copeland Park, Peckham Levels and the Bussey), late-night bars and superb restaurants (listed below).
Artists’ studios are rife, yoga studios are plentiful and there are regular pop up concerts and exhibitions within 1.5km.
East Dulwich is famous for its quirky independents (Forest, Roullier White, William Rose, Mrs Robinson and ED) plus a nice mix of good chains (Sweaty Betty, Oliver Bonas, Café Nero to name a few). There’s a Picturehouse cinema, M&S Foodhall and Co-op supermarket.
Be quick on this one! We can’t see it sticking around.
