Lovely three bedroom townhouse with garden and garage
Tucked away on a sought after residential street in the heart of Camberwell, is this lovely red brick 1980s build townhouse set over three floors. Well maintained by the current owner, this is a house ready for you to move straight into.
You have your own driveway parking space with a planting area for shrubs at the front of the property, plus a generously proportioned integrated garage. Behind the garage is a utility room with the added benefit of a shower cubicle and handy downstairs WC and access to the garden.
Up on the first floor is the spacious, L-shaped reception-diner, with plenty of space for a family sized table and chairs – a bright and airy space with engineered wood flooring, neutral decor and a Southerly aspect that lets the light in all day. A handy serving hatch connects the room to the kitchen – it’s all sleek lines here; a relatively new John Lewis kitchen has been installed, with dark oak units, high quality composite worktops and contemporary orange acrylic splashbacks. There is space for a small table and chairs and a family sized fridge freezer and dishwasher.
Up on the top floor, the two double bedrooms both enjoy built in wardrobe storage, whilst the third single bedroom makes a great child’s room or study. The family bathroom is tiled in light green and white with a white bathroom suite, shower over the bath, heated towel rail and back-to-wall pedestal WC with concealed plumbing.
The back garden is mainly paved but has a lovely Eucalyptus tree and BBQ area, accessorise with a few planters and you are ready for summer.
The property is part of the Selbourne Estate that was built in the 1980s. The houses are known to be energy efficient and form a village-like enclave in the heart of Camberwell. Allendale Close itself is a cul-de-sac, so this is one of the few streets in Southwark where children can play out safely. All the shops, bars and restaurants of arty Camberwell are quite literally, just around the corner, as is the leisure centre with pool, new library and Saturday farmers’ market on Camberwell Green. Just up Denmark Hill is Ruskin Park with its community gardens, café, play area and summer paddling pool. There are plentiful bus connections from Camberwell that will take you across the city to all the major train stations. Denmark Hill rail station has fast, frequent connections to Victoria, the City, or via the Overground to Canada Water (for Canary Wharf), Clapham, Shoreditch and Highbury & Islington.
