Full property description
This charming four-bedroom semi-detached family house is in a sought-after area in South-East London. It lies on Glengarry Road, which is nestled between East Dulwich and Dulwich Village, perfectly positioned by a wide range of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Light pours into the expansive living areas through the great use of windows, illuminating the flexible and wonderfully private interior spaces.
The building’s façade is typical of the Victorian period, incorporating recently re-pointed London stock brick and an angular bay window beneath a traditional slate-pitched roof. Victorian proportions have been preserved; beautiful fireplaces and large sash windows promote a sense of flow, bathing the house in natural light.
The living spaces have been cleverly reconfigured and renovated by the current owners with features such as handpicked fireplaces and handmade brass and copper lantern that lights the lovely front door with bespoke stained glass. You will find the original cast iron newel post on the stairs in the hall and a sympathetically chosen cast iron Victorian-style radiator.
The open-plan kitchen and dining area are positioned to the rear of the plan. The space is defined by an extension with cathedral-high windows, skylights and bi-folding doors that frame views over the verdant garden beyond. Ocean blue wood cabinetry in the kitchen with granite worktops and a Bertazonni cooker completes the kitchen. They have stripped the original wood floors downstairs and have applied under-floor heating in the downstairs shower room and kitchen. The downstairs shower is great for guests and dogs, as it can be accessed from the side passage to keep muddy paws away from the rest of the house.
The main bedroom is located at the front of the plan, yet is highly due to double glazing; the carpet creates a soft passage underfoot, and the walls have been kept neutral, giving that sense of warmth. The family bathroom has a roll-top cast iron bathtub, and the shower room features bespoke hand-made oak units with a marble counter. Each bedroom has been carefully designed with its character.
