Property details

A quaint three double bedroom, two bathroom freehold cottage with over 1100 square feet of internal living space located in a sought after area within touching distance of Brockwell Park. A minute’s walk brings you an entrance to the park and within a nine stroll you have the great transport links from Herne Hill Station. Tulse Hill station is another option and can be reached within a twelve minute walk. This house is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action but tucked away in a quiet residential area. The ground floor comprises a bright and airy ‘L-shaped’ semi open plan reception and kitchen diner with lovely views and direct access into the low-maintenance private garden. The kitchen diner is beautifully finished with a breakfast bar and ample room for a large dining table. The living space flows seamlessly into the decked section of the garden. Stairs lead to two double bedrooms on the first floor and a modern bathroom with a walk-in shower and a separate bath. The loft styled bedroom suite on the second floor is a fantastic size with eaves storage, skylights and views over the neighbouring roof tops. Peabody Cottages are nestled in a private residential development off Rosendale Road. Rosendale Road is a popular street which is pleasing on the eye and located a stone’s throw from Brockwell Park and Herne Hill’s pubs, restaurants and amenities. There is something to cater for all potential purchasers. A spacious home within walking distance of the popular Rosendale primary school and close to the highly rated Dulwich Prep and Dulwich College (both independent), as well as being close to Dulwich Park, Dulwich Village, the shops and station of West Dulwich with Victoria services. In short, a characterful house on a private road in a desirable area, only a stone's throw from Herne Hill town centre but far enough away to retain a sleepy, neighbourhood feel. This is a real gem. Freehold.
