Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

In a wonderfully peaceful setting surrounded by a mature private garden of approximately quarter of an acre, this five-bedroom detached house was designed by Austin Vernon & Partners in the 1950s and completed in 1959. An excellent example of mid-century Modern architecture, the house forms part of the prestigious Dulwich Estate.

The front door opens onto a wide entrance hall leading through to a central atrium that links the ground floor living space. To the left is a dining room and beyond that an expansive and light-filled reception room with access to the garden. A door from the dining room leads to the kitchen and breakfast room. Continuing around to the right there is a second reception space and large study.

Upstairs, an arterial hall links the five bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom, with views towards central London, has an en-suite bathroom.

The large garden wraps around the house and includes two paved areas and a large lawn to the side and rear. There is parking in the drive for a couple of cars and a double garage, which contains the utility area and separate WC.

The house is presented in good condition having been very-well maintained by the current owners, and much of the original 1960s design has been preserved. There is a large amount of loft space at both ends of the house, which could potentially be converted into additional living space.

An area well known for its exceptional Modern architecture, the Dulwich Estate is composed of approximately 1,500 acres in South East London and includes numerous private roads that are managed by the Estate. It is noted for its concentration of outstanding 1950s and 60s design, much of it by Austin Vernon & Partners. Ranging from large detached houses with large gardens to rows of smaller terraced houses, the mix of properties as well as the exceptional landscaping and planting make for an appealing and unique place to live.

The property is located near Dulwich and Sydenham Woods, which are a wildlife nature reserve. This is combined with Dulwich and Sydenham Golf Course as well as an allotment and sports club grounds to provide an unbroken green space as far as Dulwich Park and Lordship Lane. Other local attractions include The Dulwich Picture Gallery, The Horniman Museum and the local town centres of Crystal Palace and Dulwich Village.

Crystal Palace, which has previously been named as number five on Lonely Planet’s “Greatest little-known neighbourhoods in the world”, is a 15-minute walk away and is a vibrant area with award-winning restaurants and bars as well as having a thriving arts and music scene. Dulwich Village is also a 15-minute walk from the house, and the street is well placed for OFSTED ‘outstanding’ primary and secondary state schools as well as some of the best private schools in London.

Woodhall Avenue is a short walk along a footpath to Sydenham Hill station, which runs services to London Victoria (13 minutes), Blackfriars (20 minutes) and City Thameslink/Farringdon (22 minutes). Trains from Sydenham station will take you to Canada Water in approximately 17 minutes and Shoreditch High Street in 30 minutes.
