A lovely Victorian one bedroom East Dulwich apartment with large private garden area.
This bright and attractive one bedroom apartment is to be found on the raised ground floor of a well-managed, period property towards the southern end of Barry Road. The property, which retains a number of period features, provides nice amounts of space and has access to a large private section of the rear garden, accessed via the side of the building.
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 within an easy walk (or short bus ride) of both the centre of Peckham and Peckham Rye station.
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 on foot or 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 available within a few minutes walk, 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 take the stairs to raised ground floor level. You enter the building into the attractive communal hallway, with stripped wooden floors, which is shared with just one other apartment and where there is space to store a bike.
On entering the apartment you find yourself in the hallway. To your left is the master bedroom. This is a spacious double room with high ceilings and a built-in wardrobe and storage. From the bedroom a large bay window, fitted with double glazed sashes, looks out onto Barry Road. Returning to the hallway, you pass a very useful understair storage cupboard on your right before reaching the bathroom.
The bathroom is slickly fitted with a large double walk-in shower enclosure with rainfall showerhead as well as a white WC and hand basin. There is also a heated period style towel rail. The walls of the bathroom are partially tiled with contemporary brick effect tiling and there are hexagonal floor tiles.
At the rear of the apartment you will find the reception room and kitchen. The reception room is, again, a high ceilinged room with a Victorian picture rail. There is an attractive period, tiled hearth with marble surround, built-in storage and shelving to both chimneybreast recesses and space for a small dining table and chiars. From the reception room a tall sash window looks out on to the rear gardens.
A doorway leads from the reception room in to the kitchen. The kitchen has a stripped wooden floor and is fitted with a range of cream, shaker style units with a wooden work surface. There is an integrated oven and hob with space for a range of other freestanding appliances. Again, a tall sash window looks out from the kitchen onto the garden, making this and the adjacent reception room lovely bright rooms.
Externally the apartment benefits from a private garden area. This is accessed via the side of the building through a locked gate. The area of the garden belonging to this apartment is furthest from the house and therefore benefits from a good amount of sunshine throughout the day. The garden is currently laid mostly to lawn with some decked areas and beds planted with shrubs and perennials. It provides a sizeable outside space, which would be the perfect blank canvas for a keen gardener.
This lovely, bright apartment is one of three in this well managed freehold building. It has double glazed sash windows to the front, high ceilings throughout and is excellently located. Your early viewing is recommended.
