This stylishly presented, three double bedroom apartment is to be found on the upper floors of a handsome period building towards the southern end of Lordship Lane . The property, which offers extremely generous split level accommodation, is in good condition throughout.
The shopping parade close to the Plough on Lordship Lane is right on the doorstep of the property and the many bars, restaurants and independent shops of the centre of East Dulwich are no more than a 10 minute walk. The flat is also well located for schooling with Heber primary school, Harris Academy primary, St. Anthony’s RC primary school and Goodrich primary school all within walking distance. The independent schools for which Dulwich is famous are also easily accessible.
East Dulwich railway station (which provide direct services into London Bridge (c.13 mins)) is within fifteen minutes walk or a five minute bus ride of the property. 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 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 front garden and enter into the communal hallway through the half glazed front door with leaded light inserts. From there you take the stairs to the first floor where you will find the door to the apartment in front of you. Upon entering the apartment you find yourself in the hallway with its painted wooden floorboards.
Immediately in front of you, at the rear of the property, is the kitchen. This is fitted with a range of white gloss units with a wood block work surface. There is an integrated oven and hob, dishwasher and fridge. The floor of the kitchen is tiled with large contemporary ceramic tiling and there is also a heated towel rail. From the kitchen a casement window and fully glazed double doors lead out onto the roof terrace.
Returning to the hallway you pass the bathroom on your left. The bathroom, from which there is access to some loft space, is fitted with a white three-piece suite, comprising bath with over bath rainfall showerhead, WC and hand basin. The walls are tiled with contemporary brick effect tiling and the floor with black and white ceramic tiles. A casement window looks out from the bathroom onto the side of the property.
Outside the bathroom a flight of three stairs leads up to a half landing where you will find the first of the bedrooms and the reception room. The first bedroom is on your left. This is an extremely spacious double room with painted wooden floorboards, a period picture rail and built-in storage to one of the chimneybreast recesses. A large sash window looks out from the bedroom towards the rear of the property.
Next to the first of the bedrooms is the lovely reception room. This spans the full width of the property and has three pretty panelled casement windows looking out onto Lordship Lane. There is also a period picture rail and an ornate cast-iron fireplace. This lovely bright room, which is easily large enough to accommodate both spacious sitting and dining areas, has built in shelving and storage to both chimneybreast recesses.
Returning to the landing a double flight of stairs, with open wooden balustrade, leads up to top floor of the property. On the first half landing there is a cleverly concealed cupboard which houses the washing machine and which could be extended by the new owner to accommodate a tumble dryer too. Continuing upwards you reach the spacious top floor landing of the property where you will find access to a further loft storage space and the remaining two bedrooms.
The second bedroom, which is the smallest of the three, but still a comfortable double room, has a casement window looking out towards the rear of the property with views over the surrounding gardens. At the front of the property at this level is the master bedroom. This is a very large double room with an entire wall of built-in storage. This pretty and bright room, from which casement windows look down onto Lordship Lane, also benefits from a pretty period cast-iron fireplace. The whole of the top floor of the property has stained wooden floorboards.
Externally the property benefits from a nice, private, west facing roof terrace, which is accessed from the kitchen. This provides the perfect spot for outside dining or entertaining during the summer months when it benefits from the afternoon sun.
This is an extremely spacious apartment offering generous accommodation in a very convenient location. Your early viewing is recommended.
