A very spacious and bright Victorian two bedroom split level apartment with private garden.
This spacious duplex apartment, with its private garden and off street parking, is to be found in a handsome period property towards the southern end of Barry Road. Occupying the raised ground and first floors, the apartment benefits from an abundance of light, has been refurbished to a high standard, offers great amounts of adaptable space and is split over two levels. The apartment benefits from its own large and secluded garden area and has potential (STPP) to extend the already generous footprint further in to the roof space.
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.
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 and the West End.
Frequent bus services are also available within a few minutes walk, which can take you directly to Oxford Street, 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 take the stairs to raised ground floor level where you will find the private entrance to this lovely apartment. Upon entering the apartment you find yourself in the hallway with its solid wooden flooring, dado rail and period cornicing. The hallway also has a large storage cupboard and a very pretty original stained glass sash window looking out on to the side return.
At the end of the hallway you will find the spacious kitchen diner. The kitchen is fitted with a range of mostly wooden units with a wooden worksurface. There is an eight burner range cooker with double oven together with space for other freestanding appliances. This attractive and spacious room, which has two large double glazed sash windows looking down onto the gardens, is comfortably large enough to accommodate a dining table and chairs.
Returning to the hallway, you take a flight of stairs, with open wooden balustrade, up to the first floor landing from which it is possible to gain access to the loft space.This provides large amounts of useful storage and could, subject to planning and consents, provide scope to further extend the footprint of the apartment.
From the first floor landing half glazed double doors lead into the elegant reception room. This impressive room, which has three sash windows looking down onto Barry Road, has solid wooden flooring and a very pretty, period cast-iron fireplace with marble surround and tiled inserts. There is built-in storage and shelving to both chimneybreast recesses.
Adjacent to the reception room is the slickly finished bathroom. This is fitted with a white three-piece suite comprising bath with over bath shower, WC and hand basin. The walls and floor are tiled with contemporary tiling and there is a heated towel rail. An original sash window looks out from the bathroom onto the side return of the property.
At the rear of the property at first floor level are the two bedrooms. The first of the bedrooms, to your right, is a pretty double room with a built in wardrobe and storage. It has a double glazed sash window looking down onto the garden.
The master bedroom is to your left. This is a generously sized double room, which has an entire wall of built in storage and solid wooden floors. Again, a double glazed sash window looks down from this room onto the gardens.
Externally the property benefits from both an off-road parking space to the front and a very large and secluded private garden area to the rear, which is accessed via the side passageway of the property. The garden, which is surrounded by mature trees and shrubs, is mostly laid to lawn with an area of hardstanding at the end large enough to accommodate a sizeable garden shed or storage unit. Being at the far end of the whole garden, and being fenced and surrounded by trees, the garden is entirely secluded and not overlooked by any neighbouring properties.
This is a beautifully presented apartment offering generous space in an excellent location. Your early viewing is recommended.
