A beautifully enhanced 5 double bedroom SEMI DETACHED Victorian family home on this popular residential street in the heart of East Dulwich and within catchment for the highly rated Heber Primary school. The footprint of this house is wider and larger than an average Victorian house in the area, offering grand proportions throughout and an abundance of period features. The current owners have enhanced this lovely family home by adding a beautiful side return kitchen extension and a converted loft that adds two double bedrooms and an additional shower room.

Upon approach the house is set back from the street by a front walled patio garden and offers plenty of kerb appeal with an iconic sash bay window with detailed masonry, three large sash windows on the first floor and a Victorian door that is protected by an ornate porch with pillars capped with corbels.

Upon entry there is a hallway housing the staircase leading up and a sliding door to the side leads to the reception room.

The double reception room has been opened to create a generous living space that is illuminated with natural light from the large sash bay window which is furnished with plantation shutters. Underfoot are exposed original wooden floorboards and the room offers high ceilings with cornicing. The front area is a cosy lounge area where there is a charming, cast iron, Victorian fireplace as a centrepiece surrounded by beautiful fitted low-level cupboards with shelving in the alcoves either side. The rear of the reception room makes for a good dining area with plenty of space for a large table and chairs.

The kitchen diner at the back of the house is a fantastic entertaining/family space with underfloor heating throughout. The side return has been extended to maximise the internal living space with skylights above the dining area that draws in natural light along with large bi-fold doors that open up into the rear garden. The kitchen is set to one side of the room with plenty of wall and base-mounted white matt units with a marble worktop housing the sink, dishwasher and the Rangemaster oven and hob. There is also a moveable kitchen island which makes the kitchen a more versatile space. Along the back wall are tall floor-to-ceiling units with space for a large fridge freezer, a door to the side leads to the handy utility room and there is also a downstairs guest toilet by the entrance to the room.

Through the large bi-fold doors, the kitchen floor tiles extend into the garden making this a great outdoor/indoor space in the summer, beyond this is a low maintenance artificial grass lawn which is surrounded by a raised border full of mature plants and shrubs, to the side is a good size shed for storing gardening equipment and the like.

Upstairs on the first floor there is a landing with the staircase leading up to the converted loft and access to 3 carpeted bedrooms and the family bathroom.

The largest bedroom occupies the whole width at the front of the house with high ceilings and three large sash windows that fill the room with natural light. Adjacent is another double that also has high ceilings and a window to the rear and the third bedroom is located at the far end of the hallway overlooking the garden.

The family bathroom is fully tiled with a contemporary wash hand basin with vanity unit, accompanied by a toilet and a bath with an overhead shower and screen. A frosted double-glazed window allows for light and ventilation.

Up the half landing in the converted loft is a stylish bedroom with a unique angled window with eaves storage underneath, this room makes a great home office with interesting views over the rooftops and beyond.

The shower room services the two bedrooms on this level, stylish and contemporary with a lovely walk in shower, grey tiled walls and hexagonal mosaic tiled flooring accompanied by a stylish wash hand basin and toilet. A window to the side allows for light and ventilation.

At the top of the house is a good size double bedroom with modern grey vinyl flooring, skylights are set at the front of the house offering plenty of natural light and storage in the eaves below and a glass door opens onto a glass Juliet balcony with views over London.
