Set back from the road, nestled privately behind a flourishing front garden is this beautiful two bedroom Victorian terrace home.

Original ceiling roses and cornices lead you through the entrance hall into the large double reception area, where you are met with a lovely reproduction Victorian fireplace with gas flame-effect fire. Of course no Victorian terrace is complete without traditional sash windows, to be found throughout the house. The current owner has also kindly included the reception area's made-to-measure curtains and blinds in the sale. Through to the rear of the property is the kitchen, lined on either side with work top units, cabinet space, an eye-catching wood burner and a beautiful, bespoke dresser, which the new owners will also inherit. Even on the darkest of days the kitchen is flooded with light owing to its west-facing orientation.
Leading out from the kitchen you can access the garden - exceptionally large for an inner London property - also a sun trap all year around and a true highlight of the house, with mature flowering cherry and apple trees and stocked with well-established plants.
Upstairs are two double bedrooms and the family bathroom, with the second bedroom and bathroom featuring Velux windows to maximize light.
Storage is in no shortage, with the property benefiting from fitted wardrobes in the main bedroom, access to a loft with a drop-down ladder, and a spacious cellar with power point and radiator.

The house is accessible to the entirety of Central London by foot (around a 1hr walk to the West End and the City, closer to London Bridge), bicycle (20-30 minutes from all of Central London) and bus (many nearby routes leading north to central London and the City within 30 minutes). If you live here and work in central London, you will never need to get on a packed commuter train or tube again. Although if needs be, you can take the train from nearby Denmark Hill, Oval, Peckham Rye and Elephant and Castle when heading a bit further in all directions. These stations are all within walking distance and, in the case of Oval, Elephant and Castle and Peckham Rye, a very quick bus from stops within a couple of minutes of the house.

Despite its central location, the house is set in a green, low density residential neighbourhood with a strong community feel. It is perfectly located just a short walk from Burgess Park, which at 56 hectares is the largest park in Southwark and was not so long ago subject to a £10m improvement programme, creating one of London's best and most varied green spaces with running tracks, tennis courts, BMX track, a lake, BBQ areas and nature walks. It is also close to delightful Brunswick Park, a local park with a cafe and mini art gallery, tennis courts and a large children's play area. Even closer on Benhill Road is a tranquil nature garden, open to all and tended by volunteers from the community. The neighbourhood has to be one of inner London's most green and you will be constantly pleased by the variety of local green spaces.

Nearby Camberwell is a bustling local centre with a great range of independent restaurants, pubs and shops. It is one of London's best kept secrets, nestling between and rivalling better known centres of Peckham and Brixton without the crowds. Highly rated independent restaurants include Theo's (pizza place), Silk Road (authentic Xi'anese food) and the Camberwell Arms (Bib Gourmand Gastropub). Great independent pubs include Stormbird (craft beers), The Pigeon (craft beers), Hermits Cave (Camra-listed traditional local) and Crooked Well (Gastropub with large outdoor seating area). Camberwell also has a large Morrison's, a Lidl and a Co-op as well as bike shops and other useful retailers.

The award-winning South London Gallery is a short walk away along Peckham Road, next door to Camberwell College of Art/University of the Arts London, which gives the area an authentic artistic buzz. Local artists at Vanguard Walk and Clockwork Studios hold regular open days.

Heading a little further out it's only a 20 minute walk to get to Peckham, where you will find amazing restaurants like Begging Bowl, Ganapati and Pedlar. Elephant and Castle, which is subject to considerable regeneration including a new town centre, is also close by to the north.
