A beautifully presented, five double bedroom family home in the heart of East Dulwich.
This beautifully presented, five double bedroom house is to be found on Crystal Palace Road, which is in the heart of East Dulwich and runs parallel to Lordship Lane. The house has been fully updated (including the installation of replacement double glazed sashes to both first and second floor) and extended by the existing owners and therefore, whilst it retains a number of period features, it also offers slick contemporary family accommodation that has been thoughtfully configured and finished to a very high standard.
The house is a few minutes stroll from Lordship Lane. So, on your doorstep you have the pick of the many bars and restaurants on one of south-east London’s most sought after high streets as well as facilities such as the Picturehouse cinema. You are also excellently placed to pick up fresh produce from the weekly North Cross Road market or from the local independent butcher, fishmonger, greengrocer or cheesemonger.
This part of Crystal Palace Road is quieter than the sections further north and so on street parking is easy. It is also brilliant for school catchment with each of Goodrich, Heber, and the Harris Academy, primary schools just a short walk from the house. The newly opened East Dulwich Charter Secondary school and the independent schools for which Dulwich is renowned are also within easy striking distance.
East Dulwich railway station (which provides direct services into London Bridge (c.13 mins)) is approximately 10 minutes’ walk from the property and both Denmark Hill and Peckham Rye railway stations are a short bus ride away. At these stations you will find direct trains to Victoria and King’s Cross stations and access to London Overground providing connections to the Jubilee line tube services to Canary Wharf. Frequent bus services are also available on Lordship Lane providing direct routes to destinations including the West End and The City.
You approach the property through the paved front garden and enter into the hallway with its stripped wooden flooring, which continues into the front reception room. The hallway has high ceilings and a period dado rail. Immediately on your left is the first reception room. This is a spacious and bright room with a wide bay looking out onto Crystal Palace Road. The front reception has a pretty cast-iron period fireplace, which is fitted with a gas coal effect fire and there is fitted storage and shelving to both chimneybreast recesses.
Next along the hallway is the second reception room. Again this is a spacious room with solid wooden flooring, which continues on into the kitchen diner.
From this second reception room a wide open doorway leads into the kitchen diner making it, therefore, ideal as either a dining room or, as the current owners use it, a children’s play room where you can keep an eye on them from the kitchen.
The lovely kitchen diner is an extremely spacious room, which the current owners have zoned into cooking, seating and dining areas. The kitchen area itself is fitted with a range of modern units with sileston work surfaces. There is a central island unit which houses the sink and incorporates cupboards which house the washing machine and dishwasher. The other units contain lots of useful storage space incorporating both cupboards and drawers. This is an extremely bright room having both a number of Velux rooflights and triple bifold doors leading out onto the garden.
Leaving the kitchen and returning to the hallway you pass the downstairs cloakroom, which is fitted with a white WC and handbasin with vanity unit. There is also a useful under stairs storage cupboard. From the hallway the stairs with open wooden balustrade lead to the upper floors. On the first half landing you will find the first of the bedrooms. This is a comfortable double room with a sash window looking down onto the rear garden.
From the first half landing a further flight of three stairs leads up to the first floor proper where you will find two further bedrooms and the family bathroom. To your right is the second bedroom, which is again a double room and has a sash window looking down onto the garden.
Adjacent to the second bedroom is the family bathroom which has Fired Earth tiling to the bath surround. This is nicely fitted with a white three-piece suite comprising bath with over bath shower, WC and hand basin. There is also a heated towel rail.
At the front of the property at first floor level is the original master bedroom. This is a generous double room with two large sash windows looking down onto Crystal Palace Road. The floor of this room has painted floorboards and there is a period cast-iron fireplace with wooden surround.
From first floor level a further staircase leads up to the top floor. Here you will find two further bedrooms. At the rear of the property at this level is a large double bedroom with a casement window looking down onto the rear garden and adjacent to this is the final bedroom suite. This is a very generous double room, which has dual aspect windows, a Velux roof window to the front and fully glazed double doors with Juliet balcony to the rear. This lovely, spacious room also benefits from a built-in wardrobe, some eaves storage and an ensuite shower room. The shower room is fitted with a large walk-in shower enclosure with rainfall showerhead, and a white low-level WC and hand basin with vanity unit. There is also a heated towel rail. From the shower room a Velux window looks out to the front of the property.
Externally the property benefits from both a small front garden and a nice sized rear garden, which is divided into both a patio area (the perfect spot for outside dining or entertaining) and a lawned area, which is ideal for the children to play outdoors.
This is a very well maintained property, which has previously been thoughtfully extended to provide spacious family accommodation. It is in a great location for all local amenities and schooling. Your early viewing is recommended.
