A lovely and spacious one double bedroom period garden flat in a central East Dulwich location.
This charming, one double bedroom apartment is to be found on Henslowe Road close to the junction with Underhill Road. It occupies the whole of the ground floor of a Victorian house and retains some period features including fireplaces.
The property is roughly equidistant (about a ten minute stroll) from both Peckham Rye Park and Lordship Lane. So, within easy striking distance, you can pick and choose from the many restaurants on this very foodie oriented stretch of south east London high street, drop in for a drink in one of the excellent pubs or bars or pick up fresh produce from the weekly North Cross Road market or the increasing number of independent food retailers. Even closer to home Barry Road provides a number of small shops for daily needs and the Clockhouse pub, with its views of the Rye, for a quick drink or some well regarded pub food.
From there you will find additional direct trains to London Bridge, Victoria, Blackfriars and St. Pancras stations and access to the London Overground with its connections to Canary Wharf via the Jubilee line (c.17mins). Frequent bus services are also available within a five minute walk, which can take you to central London, Victoria, Waterloo and London Bridge.
You approach the building through the small front garden and enter into the communal hallway where you will find the door to the apartment on your left. Upon entering the apartment you find yourself in the hallway with its solid wooden flooring that extends through into the reception room and bedroom.
Immediately in front of you is the reception room. This is a pretty and bright room with high ceilings and a bay, fitted with replacement double glazed sash windows and plantation shutters, looking out onto Henslowe Road. This lovely room has a feature period, cast-iron fireplace with fitted shelving to one of the chimneybreast recesses.
Adjacent to the reception room is the bedroom. This is a comfortable double room, which again has high ceilings and a period cast-iron fireplace with marble surround. There are fitted wardrobes to both chimneybreast recesses and a large double-glazed sash window looks from this room out onto the side return of the property.
Continuing along the hallway you pass a useful understair storage cupboard before entering the kitchen diner. This is a bright and spacious room, which is zoned into both dining and kitchen areas. The kitchen is fitted with a range of white high-gloss units with an integrated induction hob and oven, fridge and freezer. There is also space for a freestanding dishwasher. To the rear of the room is the dining area, which can comfortably accommodate a dining table and chairs. From the kitchen a large sash window and a smaller casement window look out onto the pretty side return of the property.
From the rear of the kitchen a doorway leads out to a small vestibule where you will find a further large storage cupboard housing both the central heating boiler and a freestanding washing machine, and the door into the bathroom.
The bathroom is fitted with a white three-piece suite comprising low-level WC, hand basin with built in vanity unit and bath with over bath shower. From the bathroom vestibule a half glazed door leads out onto the rear garden.
Externally this lovely flat benefits from a beautiful private garden which comprises both a wide side return, which is laid to shingle, and a rear garden area which is mostly laid to lawn with two paved areas which provide the perfect spot for a barbecue or outside dining or entertaining during the warmer months.
The wide side return also provides scope (STTP) to further extend the footprint of this already generously sized apartment.
Neutrally decorated throughout, this property is ready to move into. It has a long lease and is likely to be much sought after. Early viewing is strongly recommended.
