A bright and airy Victorian two bedroom apartment with communal garden.
This bright and airy two bedroom apartment is to be found on the first floor of a handsome, double fronted period property towards the southern end of Barry Road. The property, which is beautifully presented throughout, provides good amounts of adaptable living space, has access to a communal rear garden and, being at the rear of the building, is nice and quiet.
There is a local grocery store and café/bakery within a few minutes’ walk of the property and the many bars, restaurants and independent shops located in the centre of East Dulwich are no more than a 10 minute walk. Peckham Rye Park is to be found at one end of Barry Road and at the other end the open spaces of Dulwich Park are only a short stroll. The apartment is also well located for schooling with Heber primary and Goodrich primary schools within walking distance. The independent schools for which Dulwich is famous are also easily accessible.
East Dulwich railway station (which provides direct services into London Bridge (c.13 mins)) is within a fifteen minutes walk or a five minute bus ride from Lordship Lane. Peckham Rye station is also easily accessible by buses which stop close by the property. There you will find direct trains to Victoria, London Bridge, Farringdon, City Thameslink and King’s Cross stations and access to the London Overground services providing connections to the Jubilee line tube services to Canary Wharf.
Frequent bus services are also on Barry Road, which can take you directly to Victoria, Waterloo and London Bridge or, within fifteen minutes, to Denmark Hill or Forest Hill railway stations.
You approach the property through the front garden and enter into the communal hallway. From here a flight of stairs leads to the first floor where you will find the door to this apartment directly in front of you. Upon entering the apartment you find yourself in the hallway with its stripped wooden floorboards, which extend throughout this lovely home.
Immediately to your right in the hallway there is a short corridor, which leads to the main bedroom and the bathroom. In this hallway the current owner has installed a clever storage cupboard, which has been plumbed for a washing machine. First on your right is the bathroom. This is nicely fitted with a white three-piece suite comprising bath with over bath shower, hand basin with vintage style taps and low-level WC.
Adjacent to the bathroom is the main bedroom. This, like all of the rooms in the apartment, is a bright high ceilinged space. The room is a generous double bedroom with ample room for storage. From this bedroom a casement window looks out towards the rear of the property.
Returning to the main hallway and proceeding towards the rear of the apartment, you next pass the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a range of modern gloss units with a wood block worksurface. There is an integrated oven and induction hob as well as a full sized dishwasher. The kitchen also has space for a large freestanding fridge freezer. From the kitchen a casement window looks out to the side of the property.
Adjacent to the kitchen is the second bedroom. This is a pretty double room with a casement window looking out to the side.
Finally, at the end of the apartment, is the reception room. With floor-to-ceiling windows on both aspects this is an incredibly light and airy room which is south west facing and has space to be zoned into both sitting and dining areas. To the rear there is a large casement window looking down onto the gardens and to the right there is a full height bay window, which looks out to the side of the property.
Externally the apartment benefits from a communal garden area to the rear, which is accessed via a side passageway. The garden area is mostly laid to shingle with a number of raised beds planted with shrubs, perennials and small trees. It provides the perfect spot for drinks with fiends outdoors during the warmer months.
This lovely apartment has double glazed windows throughout. It is excellently located, beautifully presented and comes with sought after outdoor space. Your early viewing is recommended.
