A beautifully presented two double bedroom half house with south facing garden in East Dulwich
This pretty, two bedroom half house, which has been updated to a high specification by the current owners, 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 and provides excellent existing accommodation whilst also offering the scope to extend the footprint (subject to planning and approvals). A particular attraction of this house is the lovely south facing garden where the owners grow their own wine grapes among other things.
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 paved front garden and enter into the communal hallway with its period tiled floor. To your left is the main door into the house.
Upon entering the house you find yourself in the spacious kitchen diner. Immediately to your right upon entering the room is a useful and deep under stairs storage cupboard where the existing owners have plumbed the washing machine. The kitchen diner has stripped boards to the floor and has recently been refitted with a modern grey panelled kitchen with marble effect work surfaces. There is an integrated oven and hob as well as a slimline dishwasher and also space for a freestanding fridge freezer. From the kitchen an original sash window looks out onto the pretty rear garden.
Immediately to your left as you enter the house is a door that leads into the front reception room. This is a lovely high ceilinged and bright room with a wide bay fitted with original sashes looking out onto Silvester Road. There are stripped wooden boards to the floor and a very attractive period style fireplace with tiled inserts and wooden surround. Both chimneybreast recesses in this room have been fitted by the current owners with a range of bespoke wooden storage and shelving.
Returning to the kitchen diner, an open doorway at the rear leads into a small vestibule, which has some additional storage and a door leading out into the garden. From this area there is also access to the bathroom. The bathroom is nicely fitted with a white three-piece suite comprising bath with over bath shower, low-level WC and handbasin with built-in vanity unit. There are period style tiles to the floor and the bathroom also benefits from a tall heated towel rail.
Back in the kitchen diner a staircase leads to the first floor. Here you will find the two double bedrooms. First, on your right, is a spacious and bright double room with an original sash window looking down onto the rear garden. From this room there is access to the loft space of the house which, STPP, provides scope to further extend the footprint of this lovely property as many of the neighbours on Silvester and surrounding roads have done. At the front of the property at first floor level is the master bedroom. This is, again, a spacious and bright double room with a wide bay looking out onto Silvester Road. In this room the current owners have fitted bespoke storage to both of the chimneybreast recesses.
Externally the property benefits from an extremely pretty and secluded south facing rear garden. Immediately upon exiting the house you find yourself on a York stone paved area which extends round to a seating area under a beautiful pergola where there is a well-established grapevine. The current owners send their grapes to a local company who make wine for them from their harvest. Leading on from the paved area is a pretty lawned area with surrounding beds planted with a range of shrubs and perennials. At the rear of the garden to one side is a further triangular pergola onto which the grapevine has been trained and, on the opposite side, there is an area of hardstanding where there is a small garden shed.
