Proudly positioned in a conservation area, on Camberwell Grove is this fine North facing Grade II listed Georgian six-bedroom terraced house, built circa 1840, which offers spacious accommodation throughout with an overall total floor space of 2085 sq. feet. Now available to the market for the first time this grand period property has been in the same family generation for almost 47 years. It sits towards the bottom of a sought-after street, near Camberwell Church Street and St Giles Church (whose spire you can see from the rear windows at the back of the property.) The tree-lined street is still generally considered to be one of the finest streets in the area.
This amazing property offers a wealth of charm and character in need of refurbishment, and could become the perfect family home for the discerning cash buyer with no onward chain with great space and further potential.
From the moment, you walk through the front door there is a sense of space with the amazing high ceilings and spacious accommodation. Head further inside where you can soon start envisaging that this property has the potential to be a beautiful family home. You will also be amazed with the natural light that floods the lounge from the two large sash windows on the ground floor.
This property benefits from spacious accommodation spread over four floors with a living room, reception, kitchen/dining room, downstairs cloakroom, amazing storage space under the stairs on the ground floor/basement, a small self-contained kitchen on the third floor, six bedrooms and a family bathroom. Many of the original features have been retained and must be viewed to fully appreciate what this property has to offer.
This extraordinary and enormously large, Georgian Grade II listed building which dominates the street with its impressively large and extremely high frontal exterior has delightful period features, such as period wooden floors, sash windows some with shutters, original Victorian gas light valve wall fittings, high ceilings, high skirting boards, imperial wood panelling and eight original Georgian fireplaces, in the rooms on each floor.
This property, which was a working-class household in the early 1900s was very fortunate to have gas lighting laid on with most streets in London lit by gas as early as 1816.
For that little extra space, you could consider building a roof terrace subject to Listed Building Consent to the LA. The neighbouring property and a few of the terraced houses on the road already set the primacy for this area and all boast a roof terrace overlooking the stunning views of the historic buildings nearby and the tree lined street below.
Outside of the property there is on street parking for residential permit holders only from Monday to Friday (8.30am to 6.30pm). At the back aspect is a low maintenance small backyard and with a bit of imagination it can be turned into a beautiful outdoor space.
This prestigious period property is set for complete renovation throughout and when completed you are acquiring not just a new home, but part of our national heritage.
