A very spacious two double bedroom Victorian maisonette with an amazing 44’ private garden.
This spacious split level maisonette is to be found in a handsome period property towards the southern end of Barry Road. Occupying the ground and lower floors, the apartment benefits from its own private entrance and has been refurbished to a high standard throughout. It offers great amounts of adaptable space and is split over two levels. The apartment has direct access to its own large private rear garden, which wraps around the building and has been designed in a Mediterranean style.
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.
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 steps down to lower ground floor level where you will find the private entrance to the apartment. Upon entering the apartment you find yourself in the hallway with its solid wooden flooring, which extends throughout the whole of the downstairs. The hallway also benefits from a very large storage cupboard. As you continue along the hallway towards the rear of the apartment you first pass the reception room. This is an extremely spacious and bright room with a wide bay fitted with sash windows looking out towards the front of the property. There is a period style fireplace fitted with coal effect gas fire and there is built-in shelving to both chimneybreast recesses.
Next along the hallway is the main bedroom. Again, this is an extremely spacious room with a feature fireplace and a double glazed sash window looking out onto the rear garden.
At the end of the hallway you will find a further understair storage cupboard and the downstairs cloakroom, which is fitted with a white WC and handbasin.
At the rear of the property at this level is the kitchen/diner. This is slickly fitted with a range of panelled wooden units with a wood block work surface. There is an integrated oven, hob, full-size dishwasher and washing machine and ample space for a dining table and chairs. From the kitchen diner bi-fold doors lead out to the rear garden.
Returning to the hallway a flight of stairs with open wooden balustrade leads to the upper floor. On this landing you will find a further built-in storage cupboard and access to the bathroom and second bedroom. The bathroom is beautifully finished with mosaic tiling to the floor and brick effect tiling to the walls. It is fitted with a white three-piece suite comprising hand basin with vanity unit, low-level WC and bath with over bath shower with rainfall showerhead. There is also a heated towel rail.
Adjacent to the bathroom at the rear of the building is the second bedroom. This is a generous double room with double glazed sash windows to both the side and rear aspects.
Externally the apartment benefits from an amazing private rear garden. This lovely space wraps around the building into the broad side return of the property – a space that has the potential, subject to planning and permissions, to further extend the footprint of the property. The garden comprises a large decked area surrounded by areas laid to shingle. It is planted with a range of Mediterranean style plants. The Mediterranean feel is further enhanced by a beautiful covered dining area over which grapevines and other climbers have been trained. From the rear garden locked doorways lead out into side alleyways which allow direct access into the garden with plants and larger items from both Barry and Landells Roads without the need to pass through the apartment.
This lovely apartment is excellently situated and is finished to a very high standard. It provides generous and adaptable living space and has a truly beautiful garden, which is much larger than is usual in the area. Your early viewing is recommended.
