SOLD – A spacious, extended three bedroom, two bathroom half house in an excellent location.
This lovely, three bedroom family home is to be found within the series of roads running between Lordship Lane and Crystal Palace Road. The house is nicely finished and provides generous family accommodation that is ready to be moved straight into. This is a larger than average half house with three proper double bedrooms, a first floor bathroom and loft extension with amazing far reaching views.
The property is a short walk from Lordship Lane. So, within a five minute stroll you can pick and choose among the many restaurants on this very sought after stretch of south east London high street; pop in for a pint or a glass of wine in one of a number of pubs or bars or pick up some delicious fresh produce from the many independent food stores or the weekly North Cross Road market.
It is also well located for schooling: all of Heber, Harris Academy and Goodrich primary schools are within a very short walk, and the independent schools for which Dulwich is famous are also within easy striking distance.
East Dulwich railway station (which provides direct services into London Bridge (c.13 mins)) is within 10-15 minutes walk of the property. Frequent bus services are available, within a few minutes walk, which can take you directly to Victoria, Waterloo and London Bridge or, within fifteen minutes, to any of Denmark Hill, Peckham Rye or Forest Hill railway stations. There you will find direct trains to Victoria and King’s Cross stations and access to the London Overground services providing connections to the Jubilee line tube services to Canary Wharf.
You approach the property through the small front garden and enter into the communal entryway where you will find the door to the house on your left. On entering the house you find yourself in the hallway with the stairs directly in front of you and the reception room to your left. The reception room, which has stripped and stained floorboards, is a spacious, high ceilinged and bright room with a bay window looking out onto Heber Road. There is a period cast-iron fireplace, which is fitted with a gas coal effect fire.
Next to the reception room is the spacious kitchen diner. The kitchen is fitted with a range of painted panelled units with a wooden worksurface. There is space for freestanding appliances as well as plenty space for a dining table and chairs. A large sash window looks out from kitchen diner onto the rear garden. From the kitchen diner a doorway leads out into a utility area where the existing owners have their washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also a useful understair storage cupboard in the utility Area. A doorway leads out from this area out onto the rear garden.
Returning to the hallway the stairs lead to the first half landing where you will find the bathroom. This is a cosy room fitted with a white three-piece suite comprising WC, handbasin and a three-quarter size bath with over bath shower.
Outside the bathroom a further flight of stairs leads to the main first floor landing and the first two double bedrooms. At the front of the house is the original master bedroom. This is, again, a bright and spacious room with a picture rail, stripped and stained wooden flooring and two large sash windows looking out onto Heber Road. Adjacent to the original master bedroom is the second of the double bedrooms. This is also a generously sized room with stripped wooden floorboards and a large sash window looking down onto the rear garden.
From the first floor landing a further flight of stairs with open wooden balustrade leads to the loft extension. From here there are far-reaching views of the London skyline ranging from the West End right across to Canary Wharf. The lovely master bedroom loft suite comprises a spacious double bedroom with a double glazed sash window to the rear and a Velux roof window to the front. The bedroom also benefits from some eaves storage. Ensuite to the master bedroom is a slick shower room, which is fitted with a white WC and handbasin as well as a large walk-in shower cubicle with rainfall showerhead.
Externally the property benefits from a very pretty rear garden, which is partly decked, with surrounding beds planted with a range of mature shrubs and perennials, and partly paved. It provides the perfect spot for a glass of wine on a summer evening or for outdoor dining and also provides potential scope, subject to planning, to further extend the downstairs footprint of the house as the adjoining house has done.
Nicely finished and with high ceilings and period details throughout, this is a lovely family home in a convenient location and early viewing is recommended.
