Property details

A fantastic opportunity to completely renovate this impressive, seven/eight bedroom, period detached house on Palace Road, a highly sought-after road, surrounded by equally grand dwellings, perfectly located between the transport links and amenities in Tulse Hill and Streatham.

This majestic house is a complete blank canvas, providing the perfect chance for a purchaser to use their own inspiration and resulting in with a home that completely reflects their personal taste. This is a rare opportunity and the property is larger than the majority of period houses in the area, boasting over 3100 square feet of living space.

The ground floor comprises a large reception room to the front of the house, a secondary reception room/dining room, a double bedroom/study and a spacious eat-in kitchen. From the kitchen there is access onto the large, mature South-facing garden, boasting a spacious patio area with beautiful wisteria. There is also a large basement, offering excellent storage options or indeed development potential, subject to the necessary permissions. Upstairs, there are seven bedrooms and a large, soundproofed loft room which could be converted in full to create a further double room, subject to the necessary permissions. With seven bedrooms and such an extensive internal square footage on offer, the layout is incredibly versatile and the space can be altered to suit each individual purchaser's requirements, to create their ideal home over time. The house is packed full of character, with original features throughout including fireplaces, sash windows and delightful tiling. The property also has the fantastic benefit of private off street parking at the front of the house.

Palace Road is a wide, tree-lined residential street running between the amenities on offer in Tulse Hill and Streatham Hill. Tulse Hill train station is within a five-minute walk with trains to London Bridge and central London via Southern Rail and the Thameslink. Streatham's vibrant high street with an array of restaurants, cafes, bars, popular schools and shopping facilities are all within easy reach. Herne Hill and West Dulwich are also within easy walking distance offering a village feel and a wide range of amenities. Brockwell Park is a short walk, lauded as London's best outdoor space by locals with its amazing lido among its myriad attractions. Brixton is also a five-minute bus journey or a thirty-minute stroll across Brockwell Park. This house is a real gem and a rare find - early registration of interest is advised.

Tulse Hill area highlights

Perfectly placed between Streatham, Dulwich, Brixton and the up and coming West Norwood, this area is one of the hidden gems of London. It will soon find itself on the move with its proximity to Brockwell Park, its larger than average Victorian housing stock and its transport links to central London. Brockwell park being on the doorstep cannot be underestimated in terms of lifestyle value, from its amazing views over the city to its beautiful hills and grand trees to its tennis courts, the universally lauded Lido spa complex, regular events, great pubs that border it and community gardens (and spirit). The high streets of West Norwood and West Dulwich are just minutes away too.
