Full property description

A charming period family home on the favoured side of a highly coveted residential road in Herne Hill in very close proximity to Rosendale School (0.2mi). Offering almost 2000ft2 of space over three floors with five bedrooms, dual reception rooms, three bathrooms and a large private, southeast-facing garden.

Guernsey Grove is a quiet residential road lined with attractive period homes and is positioned brilliantly for the station, and of course, Brockwell Park. This particular home is on the south side of the road giving you a fabulously bright southeast-facing garden, (which we believe is one of the two biggest gardens on the road!).

Accommodation is spread over three floors, with the ground floor offering the usual set-up these period homes are known for, with large dual receptions at the front and a larger-than-average kitchen at the rear. The receptions remain open to each other which flows nicely, there’s a decorative period fireplace, original sash windows and quality oak flooring. The recently installed double-glazed French doors lead onto the side return, which is ideal in warmer months and helps illuminate this space owing to that fabulous southeast-facing aspect at the rear of the house.

The kitchen is contemporary in style and offers space for a reasonable-sized dining table (easily a 6-8 seater), there’s acres of worktop space, a range cooker and plentiful storage. Notably, there is also scope to enlarge the kitchen, by extending over the side return which is a popular modification carried out to these homes. It is a fantastically bright space, again helped by its southeast-facing aspect and dual sash windows, if an extension were to be built over the side return the addition of a glass roof would make a lot of sense to exploit the light! Access to the garden is granted via another double-glazed French door at the end of the kitchen.

Moving up to the first floor there are three bedrooms and the family bathroom. The rearmost room is an attractive room with a pretty view over the gardens and of course benefits from that bright south-eastern aspect, making it a beautiful space to wake up in. There’s also a double-glazed sash window, wood floors, an integrated wardrobe and an attractive period fireplace. Adjacent to the rear bedroom is the family bathroom, modern with a distinct Victorian vibe, it has a large walk-in rain shower, period-style sanitaryware and fittings, and is finished off with brilliant white metro tiles and a heated towel rail.

The master bedroom is at the front of the first floor, taking advantage of the full width of the building it also has three glorious large windows making for a lovely bright space, all of which are original sashes featuring the split top pane, which is a lovely original feature the local houses in this part of Herne Hill & Dulwich are known for. The middle bedroom is another well-proportioned double room with a view over the garden which again benefits from that bright south-eastern aspect.

On the upper floors are another two bedrooms, both with en-suites, making them ideal rooms for visiting guests and older children. The rearmost bedroom’s en-suite has a stunning freestanding bath and a very modern finish, the bedroom overlooks the garden and would also make a lovely office or study, especially given its light and being at the top of the house it feels tucked away and quieter, as does the loft conversion room, which is also a super bright room given its velux window and French doors on the opposing wall, which will be hugely appreciated on hot summer days! The loft en-suite has a walk-in shower and the loft room boasts a fair amount of eaves storage.

The garden has a sought-after southeast-facing aspect but it has a lot more going for it than this, firstly, it’s massive by local standards, spanning approx. 70ft, which alongside the neighbouring garden, are the two largest gardens on the road. The configuration of the surrounding roads means most gardens on both sides of Guernsey Grove (and Hawarden Grove) taper in and none other than the direct neighbour have gardens with this length. They are also completely enclosed, hemmed in by the neighbouring gardens of those on Croxted Rd & Hawarden Grove, which is comforting.

Location-wise, the road is blessed with access to a number of green spaces and sports facilities, as well as a fab train link for those needing to commute (Victoria in 10 mins!!). The local schools need no introduction (both primary & secondary and private & state), the highly coveted Rosendale Primary (Ofsted outstanding) is a mere 0.2 mi away (or less than 300m as the crow flies, which is the schools favoured method of measurement) and the local scene is revered for its excellent pubs, indie shops and restaurants.

Brockwell Park offers 125 acres of open space (and a lido!) hosting everything from junior football clubs, exercise clubs and of course its music festivals, with all tastes catered for from Jazz to Drum & Bass, Reggae, Pop, Soul & the best in electronic music, the heritage of the local community and its history is rightfully represented in its music events, but it’s not all aimed at adults; the park hosts “Brockwell Bounce” which is London’s biggest free festival for children too.

The infamous velodrome is moments away, a brilliant cycling venue that’s incredibly inclusive, you don’t have to turn up on a £20k carbon bike to have fun here and it caters for all ages and abilities, from age 2 upwards. There’s also the Dulwich Sports Club which is literally a stone’s throw away, although new memberships have been paused to retain a quality service, as a local you’ll eventually find your way in.  

Dulwich Road offers a nice variety of small eateries and pubs, the most celebrated being the Prince Regent & The Florence. Follow Dulwich Road west and you’re met with South London’s most eclectic range of restaurants in Brixton.

For commuting and nights out in town, Herne Hill Station is less than half a mile away where you can hop on a train into Victoria, which is only two stops (or ten mins) away.
