A spacious, well located, three bedroom, two bathroom half house in East Dulwich.
This pretty, extended three bedroom half house is to be found on one of the quiet Victorian terraced streets between Lordship Lane and Crystal Palace Road. It retains a number of period features, provides excellent accommodation and is ready for you to move into whilst also offering the scope to extend the downstairs footprint (subject to planning and approvals).
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 this very foodie oriented stretch of south east London high street. You are also excellently placed to pick up some delicious fresh produce from the weekly North Cross Road market or from the local independent butchers, fishmongers or greengrocers for which this area is becoming increasingly known.
East Dulwich railway station (which provides direct services into London Bridge (c.13 mins)) is approximately 10 minutes’ walk from the property and both Demark 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 the London Overground services 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 Victoria, Waterloo and London Bridge.
You approach the property through the small paved front garden and enter into the communal hallway. The door to the house is on your left. On entering the house you find yourself in the spacious double reception room with its stripped wooden flooring. The front of this pretty double room has a period cast-iron fireplace and a bay window, fitted with half height plantation shutters, looking onto Silvester Road. In the rear reception room you will find access to a large understair cupboard, which provides excellent amounts of useful storage space.
From the rear reception room a door leads into the bathroom. The bathroom is fitted with a white three-piece suite comprising bath with over bath shower WC and handbasin. There is also a heated towel rail. A small casement window looks from the bathroom towards the rear of the property.
Next to the bathroom, and also accessed from the rear reception room, is the kitchen. This has a casement window looking onto the garden and is fitted with a range of cream shaker style units with a wood effect worksurface. There is space in the kitchen for a freestanding dishwasher and there is an integrated oven and hob. Next to the kitchen is a useful utility area where the current owners house their washing machine and fridge freezer. From the utility area a door leads into, and a window looks onto, the rear garden.
Returning to the reception room, a pretty staircase with open balustrade leads to the upper floors. On the first floor you will find the first two bedrooms. At the front of the property at this level is the current owners’ master bedroom.
This is a comfortable double room with a bay window looking down onto Silvester Road. This lovely bright room also has built-in storage to both chimneybreast recesses. At the rear of the property at first floor level is the second bedroom. This is a pretty single room with a sash window looking down onto the rear garden. There is also a built-in cupboard providing useful storage.
From the first floor landing a further staircase with open balustrade leads to the top floor loft extension. The extension comprises a double bedroom with ensuite shower room. The bedroom has three Velux roof windows making it a nice bright space and the ensuite shower room is fitted with a heated towel rail and a white three-piece suite comprising handbasin, WC and walk-in shower cubicle. A casement window looks down from the shower room onto the rear garden.
Externally the property benefits from a pretty, private rear garden, which is partly paved, with surrounding beds planted with shrubs and perennials, and partly laid to astroturf. At the rear of the garden there is a stone paved patio/sitting area, which provides the perfect spot for outside dining or entertaining in the warmer months.
Offering potential scope for further extension at the rear and boasting replacement double glazed windows throughout (with the exception of the kitchen), this is a nicely presented and well located half house that offers three bedroom period accommodation rarely available at this price in the area. Your early viewing is recommended.
