Divine two double bedroom apartment over two upper floors, within a tall and handsome Victorian terrace. A shared garden is accessed via the raised ground floor hall. Share of Freehold.
Planstudio Architects are behind the design of the apartment; which maximises every centimetre of the space, and the property’s favourable aspect too.
The finishing throughout is of the highest order, with a clear no-expense-spared approach. Welcome features include beautiful plasterwork detail, immaculate oak floors, old school style radiators and double-glazed windows. Further, the property is well-insulated and even has a misting system. You’ve got extensive eaves storage too.
Wilson Road’s in central Camberwell, moments from Camberwell Grove and its Conservation Area. It’s a quiet and tree-lined residential street with beautiful St. Giles Church (and it’s oh so pretty churchyard) at the foot of the street. Just opposite this, an exciting new community centre/local workspace is planned in the UAL ‘Playground’ building.
Walk just eight minutes to Denmark Hill Station. Or it’s 15 to Peckham Rye Station.
Enter the building at raised ground floor level and take the stairs to your own front door on the first floor. From here you take stairs to the second floor - you land on a lovely bright landing, with the first of your bedrooms set to your left. This one’s over 10 feet by over 9 feet, with a cool pocket door, and large window to leafy vistas.
The main reception space is next - it’s over 17 feet by over 15 feet, with twin timber-framed sash windows onto pleasing views to trees and similarly-attractive housing stock. The slick handle-free fitted kitchen graces the near corner of the room on two walls, and hosts integrated appliances and plenty of cupboard space.
Take the stairs (lit by a large skylight window) up to the second floor - this is a deftly-done loft conversion with full dormer to the rear. Set to the rear of the building you’ve got an exquisite shower room with monochrome styling, and the second double bedroom (of over 15 feet by over 10 feet). This room really delivers on ceiling height, views, windows (you’ve got four in all!), and storage - you’ve got excellent built-in closet space up here, plus masses of eaves storage with two access points.
You’re only a few minutes from a popular leafy park (Lucas Gardens). Peckham Rye Park and Common, Ruskin, Brunswick and Burgess Parks are all fairly close too. You’re also close to The South London Gallery and
Highly recommended restaurants/takeaways, cafes, pubs and bars are varied and multiple. We particularly like The Camberwell Arms, The Hermits Cave, The Crooked Well, Silk Road, The Pigeon Hole cafe, Lumberjack and Theo’s.
When it’s warm, Rye Lane’s multiple rooftop bars are the on-trendiest destination for cocktails and people-watching. Rye Lane is also where you’ll find the recently-refurbished Market Building, The Bussey Building, and Peckham Levels. Peckham’s restaurants are first class - some of our favourites are Levan, Artusi, The Begging Bowl, Ganapati, and Peckham Bazaar and Babette (which are more Nunhead-way).
Butterfly Tennis Club (just-resurfaced) and Zen Yoga studio are also nearby, on Camberwell Grove, as well as the leisure centre with pool on Artichoke Place (the annual memberships there are good value).
You are close to two Fare Zone 2 stations, and also to a host of day and night bus routes at the foot of the street, from Camberwell Church Street. Oval is a short bus ride to connect with the tube there. For more options, Peckham, Herne Hill, Dulwich, Brixton and New Cross are all easily reached.
Kids or thinking of? Local schools include Lyndhurst Primary (3-11) and The Villa Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School (2-7).
