Full description

This semi-detached Victorian freehold house has remained within the same family for over four decades. Its current arrangement offers 3 double bedrooms and 2 bath/shower rooms, with scope to extend into the loft to create a 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom property, and into the side return for exceptional family living & entertaining space. Such extension work would be subject to necessary consents, with planning permission having previously been granted for a full hip-to-gable loft extension (details visible on the Southwark planning portal).
The house offers a 45-foot garden to the rear, with side access from the street, and plenty of space to the front for a vehicle, albeit the kerb is not dropped.
Melbourne Grove is an exceptional address - the street has no through access for cars as part of Southwark's StreetSpace scheme, making it a safe place for pedestrians and cyclists. The house is just 1 minute's walk from The Charter School, or 3 minutes to East Dulwich station, or 5 minutes to Lordship Lane's many shops.
These include M&S Food Hall, CoOp supermarket, William Rose butcher, Moxons fishmonger and two cheesemongers - Mons and The Cheese Block. The famous East Dulwich Tavern is just one of 10+ bars. The array of local restaurants includes Maria's Tortilla, Franklins, Yamamomo, MEATLiquor, Gourmet Burger Kitchen and Yard Sale Pizza. North Cross Road closes to vehicles on a Saturday for a street market, and the East Dulwich Picturehouse cinema is a destination in itself.
The Harris Academy on Lordship Lane has an Outstanding Ofsted rating, and just a little further are Alleyns and JAGS independent secondary schools, located on the edge of Dulwich Village.
There is a huge array of green spaces nearby - Goose Green is 7 minutes walk; Green Dale playing fields are 9 minutes' walk; Peckham Rye Park and Common are 16 minutes' walk; Dulwich Park is 22 minutes' walk, and south London's favourite Brockwell Park is 30 minutes walk.
The house is offered with no onward chain.
